Epoxy coating is a protective compound made of resin and other additives applied on flooring substrates like concrete. Depending on the surface, several layers may be applied in order to attain the desired visual finish and structural integrity. Read below to see the 5 most common benefits of epoxy floor coating which can help you decide if it’s the perfect solution for your needs.
Number One: Provides protection from mechanical and chemical abrasion
Concrete floors may pick up dust and strong chemicals that can leave stains or cracks and damage from falling objects. Applying Epoxy over the concrete is important if you want to protect the floor from damage, cracks, and dust build-up.
Number two: Cleanliness and hygiene reasons
Epoxy is easy to clean because it doesn’t absorb any form of liquid, so if you have oil spills, water spills, or chemical spills you can clean this up quickly. This is why we see a lot of Epoxy floors in workshops, car repair shops, and printing presses. If you want your floors to be impervious to spills, permanent stains, and damages, Epoxy floor coating is the way to go.
Number Three: Industrial purposes
There are very strict standards when it comes to food manufacturing and pharmaceutical manufacturing. These types of industries have specifications on what type of floor you can as it may affect the production process. Additionally, Epoxy coatings are normally applied to commercial and industrial floorings to provide a high-performance, smooth, durable surface that can last many years and withstand heavy loads. Many industrial sites, warehouses, and commercial buildings rely on Epoxy floors to maintain clean and safe conditions for workers, equipment, and products.
Number four: Requires little or no major maintenance
Once the Epoxy coating is applied, your concrete flooring is no longer porous and won’t absorb any forms of liquids which means it no longer stains as easily. Spilled liquids remain on the surface of the floor, where they are easily mopped up without scrubbing. Less time spent cleaning up means more productive work time and fewer safety hazards.
Number five: Aesthetic or decorative
Lastly, Epoxy floor coatings are available in a wide variety of colors. The fact that you can choose the color of Epoxy coating based on your preference means you can achieve everything from creating a good ambiance for your place, matching your company aesthetic, creating patterns for visible driveways and/or walkable areas, to whatever purpose it could serve you both for safety and beauty.
