industrial-grade epoxy coatings chosen for aircraft parts manufacturer
Moog, Tewkesbury, UK

the challenge

A package of durable, industrial-grade epoxy coating systems were required for a military and commercial aircraft parts manufacturer in Tewkesbury, England.

meet the client

Moog, founded in the 1950s is a prominent global leader in advanced motion control technology and operates a state-of-the-art facility located in the picturesque town of Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, England.

Moog’s facility in Tewkesbury stands as a beacon of innovation and precision engineering. It is a hub of cutting-edge research, development and manufacturing, where intricate machinery and sophisticated technologies come together to shape the future of motion control solutions.

the project

The facility required a flooring solution for its temperature-controlled main production area and walkways that are used to show visitors around the site as well as for the more back-of-house areas, such as loading bays, walkways, pump rooms, training areas and workshop spaces.  

Moog’s commitment to operational excellence necessitated a flooring system that would facilitate easy maintenance while ensuring a safe and productive work environment.

Vebro’s solution

4,000 m2 of vebrores EP SL and 6,000 m2 of vebrores EP HBC were chosen in a combination of RAL 9018 Papyrus White and RAL 5012 Light Blue to reflect the colours often associated with aviation as well as create a welcoming and safely navigable environment.

vebrores EP SL, a FeRFA Type 5, self-smoothing epoxy coating system typically installed at between 2.0 and 4.0 mm, is able to meet the demanding requirements of Moog’s industrial environment. 

Installed in the clean, temperature-controlled main production area and walkways that are used to show visitors around the Tewkesbury site, this solvent-free, easily applied coating system boasts exceptional durability and resistance.

vebrores EP HBC, a high-build epoxy coating system that is best suited to coat floors in medium duty dry processing areas where a hard-wearing, chemical resistant floor finish is required, was chosen for the more back-of-house areas, such as loading bays, walkways, pump rooms, training areas and workshop spaces. 

The pigmented, solvent-free, easily-applied system is typically installed at 0.35 mm and delivers a high gloss, seamless finish that is light-reflective and easy to clean and maintain.
