The sky is the limit with Vebro Polymers materials at aviation production facility in Tewkesbury, England 
vebrores EP SL & vebrores EP HBC chosen for Moog, Tewkesbury

A package of Vebro Polymers epoxy floor coating materials has been chosen for a designer, manufacturer and integrator of flight control systems for military and commercial aircraft based in Tewkesbury, England. 

Moog, a prominent global leader in advanced motion control technology, 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. Such an environment demands flooring that can withstand the rigours of heavy machinery, chemical exposure and constant activity. 

The facility required a flooring solution that not only offered unrivalled durability and resilience but also maintained a professional and visually appealing appearance. Moog’s commitment to operational excellence necessitated a flooring system that would facilitate easy maintenance while ensuring a safe and productive work environment. 

Understanding the critical nature of this project, Vebro Polymers, in collaboration with our trusted applicator partner IRL Group Ltd, was keen to deliver a package of flooring solutions that would perfectly align with Moog’s requirements. 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, making it capable of withstanding the heavy machinery and sustained foot and wheeled traffic, as well as the potential chemical exposure that the floor in Moog’s facility may encounter.  

The system’s self-levelling properties and its composition of resin and fine fillers ensure a seamless, high-gloss, mirror-like finish, enhancing the aesthetics of the space while also providing practical benefits. This easy-to-maintain surface facilitates efficient cleaning, ensuring a clean and safe working environment, that also looks impressive for visitors who are invited to tour the site. 

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, contributing to a welcoming, bright working environment for staff and visitors of Moog’s Tewkesbury facility. 

At Vebro Polymers, we believe that strong partnerships are the cornerstone of success. Our partnership with IRL played a vital role in the success of the project at Moog’s facility in Tewkesbury. By joining forces, we were able to harness the expertise and experience of both companies, delivering a tailored flooring solution that perfectly addressed the specific needs of this environment.  

The collaborative approach between Vebro Polymers and IRL ensured that every aspect of the project, from product selection to installation, was handled with the utmost professionalism and attention to detail. The result is a flooring system that not only meets the stringent requirements of an industrial environment but also provides long-lasting durability and visual appeal.
