Custom Industrial Floor Coatings

Industrial floors put up with a lot. Heavy machinery might sit or travel on it. There’s also a lot of human foot traffic. Industrial flooring also sees a lot for oil and chemical spills, which can quickly damage the concrete. It’s a common misconception that concrete isn’t very durable. That’s not the case at all. Concrete is very resilient if it has the right amount of protection on it.

Coatings are that protection. At Custom Concrete Floors, we always encourage our customers to apply the right treatment to the concrete to ensure its longevity. There are several coatings you can apply to the surface:epoxy finish the floor company ottawa

  • EpoxyThis coating is great for damaged and scratched floors. It can quickly cover all the flaws and make your flooring attractive. All you have to do is apply the epoxy according to the floor’s condition. You can apply a thin layer of it on new surfaces and well-maintained concrete.

If the floor is too damaged, a thick layer of the epoxy coating would level it and hide the flaws. This material is very durable, and can be easily applied. It’s also very affordable, which makes epoxy an attractive prospect for companies looking to save some revenue.

  • PolyurethaneThis particular coating is widely used in industrial applications. This material is just as resilient than epoxy. It can handle a lot of abuse without showing any evidence of it. The coating is resistant to chemicals and oils and won’t be easily stained. 

This coating is great for areas that see a lot of traffic. They also come in several different kinds of finishes so you can expect a great looking floor that’s very durable. The application process is much more complicated as well. You can fully expect this flooring to last for 5 to 8 years.

Naturally, it’s also more expensive than epoxy but if your industrial floor sees a lot of wear and tear, this might be the right flooring for you. Just leave the application in the hands of the concrete floor coating professionals.
