Benefits Of Using Epoxy Coating on Concrete Floors
Whether it is commercial or residential, a good flooring system contributes to the productivity and safety of an area.
Cracks and potholes on your floor can be dangerous to individuals and can damage equipment used in the workspace. Water damage to concrete floors is also dangerous. Once water enters the concrete, it can encourage mold and bacteria growth. What is worse, water damage can be problematic if it affects a floor on an upper level, causing leakage on the lower levels.
Applying a coating material provides another layer of protection for your concrete floors. There are many choices of coating material available on the market, which often makes the decision-making tricky. Several factors, such as the daily floor traffic, the durability of the coating material used and the overall look of the material, need to be taken into account.
Epoxy coating on concrete floors is ideal for many commercial and residential applications. Once applied, the epoxy coating helps make the floor more durable and resistant to many factors, without sacrificing aesthetics.
Concrete floors coated with epoxy are resistant to scratches, abrasions and impact. They can also help the floor withstand heavy loads, making them ideal for use in the manufacturing industry where heavy equipment is frequently used.
Epoxy-coated floors are also non-porous, meaning dust, dirt and stains won’t be able to penetrate them. The fact that epoxy coatings make floors impermeable makes them easier clean. Aside from regular cleaning to avoid yellowing, epoxy-coated floors require less recoating and little to no maintenance.
Epoxy-coated floors are resistant to many chemical and temperature changes, making them ideal for industrial plants that are prone to accidental spills or chemical leaks that can ruin the floor.
Concrete floors coated with epoxy are also less slippery. A smooth, non-slippery surface contributes to boosting productivity in the workspace. Epoxy-coated floors reduce the daily wear on transport vehicles used in manufacturing, allowing for faster material transfer, without causing damage to the floor.
Epoxy is an environment-friendly coating material that does not erode or dissolve easily into its environment. Since it is temperature resistant, it will not easily dissipate into the air. Even if it does, cured epoxy is considered relatively harmless.
Epoxy-coated floors leave a high-quality shine once they dry. Ideal for showrooms, the shine could add attractiveness to cars or exhibits because it helps improve the brightness of an interior by reflecting light.
Epoxy coatings also come in different colors and styles, so the possibilities of using them for decorative purposes are endless.
Using different colors for your epoxy coating can also be used to define different work zones. Different colors can separate the safety zones from the forklift traffic zones or any other work zones in an industrial plant, contributing to work productivity and safety.
