The end of the year has come faster than we could have imagined. Thank you to all of our customers and clients for keeping us busy with lots of fantastic projects. We hope you’ll enjoy your end-of-year holidays and New Year celebrations.
Please note that the Offices of Robex SA (PTY) Ltd will be closed from Friday 15 December 2017 until Monday 8 January 2018. However, our Production Teams will continue to work during this period to accommodate “Shut-down” at relevant companies.
In just a few weeks, we’ll be back in full force, refreshed and ready to get started on your latest requirements. Keep scrolling if it’s inspiration you’re looking for.
Safe and reliable forever-floors
Need a durable, long lasting flooring solution? So did Vergenoegd Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. Since it was for their wine cellars, they also required minimal downtime during and after the installation process. That’s why they chose our RX Foodsafe non-slip flooring solution.
RX Foodsafe is a fast-curing Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) resin system designed with the food (and beverage) industry in mind. Its inter-coat adhesion prevents wear, slipping and cracks to ensure a clean, safe and hygienic environment. The slip resistance is particularly important in a place where heavy crates are often moving in and out.
The best part of all is the quick drying properties of RX Foodsafe. This means it can be installed overnight and is ready by morning. Add in the fact that it’s low maintenance and Vergenoegd can enjoy peace of mind, knowing their floor will never cost them a dime of downtime.
Customisation: the gift that keeps on giving
With our help, Coca-Cola recently gave their Devland warehouse an upgrade, both inside and out. Externally, RX Toughseal was used to ensure a smooth transition for goods being wheeled to and from the warehouse. It’s a twin pack moisture cured polyurethane protective floor coating that provides maximum strength and a long-lasting high gloss finish for heavy traffic areas.
Our RX Polyaspartic product similarly offers a line of decorative concrete floor coatings and industrial-grade durability. However, it comes with the added benefit of customisation, with options ranging from metallic finishes to UV protection and more. In Coca-Cola’s case, they wanted their logo incorporated into the flooring itself. What do you think of the final product?
We know they’ll be looking forward to hitting the ground running next year, and hopefully now that we’ve given you some ideas to build on and some possibilities to look forward to, so will you.
A Tough One to Crack
RX Toughseal UVC offers long term durability as a protective coating for your concrete substrate. From workshops to warehouses, some floor surfaces see more traffic than others, putting them at an increased risk of premature deterioration. That’s where RX Toughseal UVC comes in.
RX Toughseal is a twin pack moisture cured polyurethane protective floor coating. It is available as a coloured or clear product and can be applied to all types of surfaces, including concrete, wood and steel. It can be purchased and applied as a DIY product and covers 6-8 square metres per kg, depending on porosity. Robex has installed this incredible flooring solution for a number of clients, who have confirmed the following benefits:
- Extremely hardwearing
- Impact resistant
- UV stable
- Easy to apply
- Very flexible
- Easy to clean
- Long-lasting durability
- 60% more light reflectance than an untreated floor
The Latest On-the-Ground News
Recently, we were tasked with finding a long-term solution for a truck loading bay, where traffic was so high that demarcation lines had to be repainted every two weeks. Through the use of RX Toughseal UVC, we were able to create longer-lasting demarcation lines. At the same premises, we also used RX MMA Flake to give the worn stairs a durable new aesthetic. Our MMA’s quick-curing time (1 hour) means we were able to ensure minimal disruption to the organisation’s activities.
Helping Clients Get a Grip on Their Safety Issues
One of our clients in the automotive industry recently brought us on board to make their high traffic stair area safer. We achieved this by using our RX Grip Kit System. Supplied in kit form for ease of use, benefits of this product include tremendous adherence to virtually all building surfaces, an option between fine or coarse aggregate, and a pleasing aesthetic effect. It’s also available in a range of colours.
There’s a WetSuit® Solution for everyone
Introducing WetSuit®, the environmentally friendly, multi-purpose liquid waterproofing membrane. WetSuit® is ideal for a large spectrum of uses, from extending the life of a roof to creating seamless, fluid applied air or vapour barriers. That makes it particularly useful for insulating asbestos roofing away from building occupants in a protective envelope.
The WetSuit® System comes in five unique solutions, all of which are water-based, self-adhering, cold spray applied, self-flashing and can be sprayed to any millimetre thickness in a single pass. That not only makes WetSuit® a supremely versatile product, but precise in its application and very easy to apply.
The membrane’s versatility and ease of use is matched only by its unbelievable durability, as one of only a few materials that has a Class A self-extinguishing fire rating, is nearly impregnable to hail, and offers 1600% elongation and a wind uplift of Class 1-990. That also makes it extremely safe, eliminating job hazards.
Find out how Wetsuit® can reduce renovation costs; safeguard against breathing hazards; offer unrivalled safety and durability; or meet your specific needs.

RX Toughseal is ideal for warehouse and workshop spaces, because it extends the service life of the surface, while providing a flexible, durable and aesthetic finish. The polyurethane coating penetrates the substrate to form a resilient material that strengthens and protects the surface.

The environmentally friendly, over torch-on waterproofing system
With new and advanced waterproofing technology, Robex SA has fulfilled the needs of many customers who require a solution that doesn’t involve the timeous and expensive exercise of having to remove old waterproofing systems that have failed. WetSuit is a water based monolithic membrane that is 80% cured in 3 seconds.

RX Aqualiner cuts down maintenance time
Pools, ponds and fish tanks… they all tend to take a bit of a dive around this time of year, don’t they? You’ve probably been slacking a little on the elbow grease during the winter months – it’s been too cold to venture outside, never mind wetting your hands while netting leaves and scrubbing sides. But now the spring and summer rains are on their way, and we all know what that means. Aquatic environments immediately become a breeding ground for algae which – besides the obvious eyesore – can create quite an issue in terms of hygiene.
The aqua lining system from Robex SA is a liquid system applied with a roller, to create a hardy but smooth 1.2mm thick surface. It’s so easy to clean that when we introduced it to the dolphin show pool at uShaka Marine World in Durban, it only took five divers around five hours to clean the pool, as opposed to 20 divers working over the course of five days before!
Aqua lining is also UV stable, non-toxic, plus it’s quick curing, which means implementing it to a new or existing pool will create minimal disruption to avoid loss of revenue.
Marble gets RX Foodsafe Flooring
By now you’ve probably heard of Marble, the highly anticipated concept restaurant in Rosebank that combines the global live-fire trend with the South African flair for flame-grilled food. The restaurant features a wood-fire grill, rooftop bar, walk-in butchery, and most importantly, our RX Foodsafe Flooring System for the back of house kitchen and bar area.
Why? Because any fine dining establishment worth its salt puts having a clean, safe and sanitary environment first. And RX Foodsafe offers a completely seamless hygienic flooring solution, which boasts exceptional chemical, wear and slip resistance; prevents build-up of impurities and bacteria; and resists cracking.
Congratulations to Dino, David and Gary on an incredibly successful opening and a restaurant so squeaky clean, you could practically eat off the floor if you wanted to.
Robex SA’s Toughseal
If you’ve been to OR Tambo International Airport lately, you might have noticed a new addition to their food and beverage offering, Airport Craft Brewers. The craft beer lounge and restaurant offers travelers a place to enjoy a cold beer and charge their phone or laptop, while they wait for their flight.
We were happy to come on board as the supplier of a durable, high-quality floor coating for the restaurant. The chosen product was our Toughseal solution, which provided the area with 60% more light reflectance – to ensure the colour didn’t fade – as well as giving the restaurant owners a solution that is durable and easy to clean, given the amount of foot traffic through their doors on a daily basis.
