If you’re a facility manager, you understand that your flooring is one of the most heavily trafficked areas of your building, which can cause excessive wear and tear. Commercial and industrial epoxy floor coatings are essential in maintaining the integrity of your floors regardless of how much heavy equipment and foot traffic crosses over them every day.

There is an increasing demand for high-quality coating and floor installations and working with an epoxy flooring contractor is something a facility manager may consider to enhance the integrity of their building.

What to Know About Epoxy Floor Coatings

What Are Epoxy Floor Coatings?

Before application, the surface needs to be cleaned and prepared by grinding or shot blasting for the epoxy to adhere properly, in addition to curing the concrete. The two-part epoxy liquid should then be mixed and applied quickly before it hardens.

The two parts of the epoxy consist of resin and a hardener. The hardener triggers a chemical reaction to occur, leading to curing. Two-part epoxy can bond to nearly anything, setting it apart from one-component epoxies. The application process is quick and simple and requires no extra tools. This means little downtime for you and your team. After application, you will notice a shiny high-gloss surface that has a vibrant finish that is safer and more for you and your employees.

What Do Epoxy Floor Coatings Add to My Facility?

1. Durability

Epoxy floor coatings have helped facilities maintain their integrity for years because of their durability. They provide a fresh look and extreme protection from thermal shock or chemicals. They also resist oil, stains, and water. The durability of the flooring is important in a facility because of the number of people and equipment continuously interacting with the flooring. Epoxy floor coatings will also ensure you save on future maintenance costs because they can handle so much. If typical upkeep is performed properly, epoxy floor coatings will last longer and continue to maintain their integrity for years.

2. Updated Aesthetic

Epoxy is customizable, and endless colors and types of finishes are available to choose from. It can also be applied over surfaces other than concrete and applied in different patterns to create visible areas. Epoxy floor coatings are easy to clean and low maintenance. They also make the facility more visible and reflective. This adds safety for your people and reduces electricity costs because your facility won’t need as many bright lights to perform day-to-day tasks. When you are ready for a safer, more cost-effective building, epoxy will make the process quick and simple.

3. Safe & Up-to-Code

Safety should be the top priority in all commercial and industrial facilities, and not only does epoxy brighten up a facility, but will also add security to the texture of the floor. Industrial epoxy flooring provides a safe and non-slip surface that can mask chips, crack, and other hazards. This mitigates slips and trips for your people, ultimately saving you money in labor costs.

Hiring a contractor with extensive experience in epoxy floor coatings will ensure you meet facility codes, have a productive work environment with little to no downtime, and meets your budgetary needs.
