  • Tank liners (for solutions up to 98% sulphuric acid)
  • Any manufacturing and industrial areas, where there is high traffic for heavy machinery such as forklifts.

Eco-floor 1500 Coating and Repair Grout

box-imageAn economical, fast-set hybrid epoxy floor coating with good UV stability, this 100% solids polymer offers great impact and wear resistance and excellent compressive strength, tensile, and elongation. It can be applied to a wide range of surfaces such as food processing plants, garages, showrooms, and believe it or not, even airplane hangars. Stained concrete can also be protected from the elements without losing their vibrant colors with Eco-floor 1500’s colorless variety. Lastly, its sole distributor and manufacturer, Construction Systems Supply, has acquired a food-grade accreditation from no less than the FDA.

SC-1100

box-imageThis pure solid low viscosity primer is a quick setting concrete sealer. Its fast cure rate makes it ideal for cold weather applications. SC-1100 Fast Set has been created with deep penetration for concrete surfaces in mind. Thus, to make it one of the best low-viscosity hybrid Novolac epoxy primers, it is carefully manufactured to assure that only 100% solids are used. This primer can reduce vapors that can cause bubbles on the concrete coating. With its low vapor emission of <10 lbs, tests done using Anhydrous Calcium Chloride has shown that the product can be applied on concrete surfaces that were only poured seven days prior.

Eco-floor SC3300

box-imageThis state-of-the-art ceramic coating is perfect for cement and metal floors thanks to its heavy-duty and tough formulation. It can protect any floor that receives intense amounts of stress and chemical spillage such as service garage floors, aircraft hangars, driveways, and automotive showrooms. Eco-floor SC3300 provides protection against corrosive materials such as gasoline, diesel and other petroleum products, thus making it suitable for industrial, chemical and secondary containment areas. Lastly, extremely acidic chemical containers for various chemicals such as sulfur can last longer when lined with it.

Crystal Loc

box-imageThis water-based concrete penetrating sealer is specially formulated to waterproof, damp proof, seal, and keep the natural appearance and profile of Portland cement-based concrete, concrete blocks, mortar, gunnite, slabs, floors, subsurface vaults, basements, walls, roofs, pillars, pipe, sculpture, architectural structures, and statuary. Crystal Loc works best on structures where post-construction damage is not due to engineering and construction flaws.

Selecting the Best Industrial Floor Coating

Both epoxy-based and polyurethane-based floor coating are both used to protect surfaces. Hence, as a business owner or manufacturer, you are probably wondering which one is best for your shop floor. While epoxy coatings and polyurethane coatings are sometimes talked about interchangeably in online discussion forums, they are two different types of floor coatings with distinctly different properties. Understanding these differences will help ensure you pick the best industrial floor coating for the job at hand.[/ImageWithContent]

Regardless of whether you decide to go with an epoxy coating or a polyurethane coating, you’ll want to be sure the industrial coating you select is a two-part floor coating (meaning it is sold in two separate parts that must be mixed together).

The Two Part Epoxy Advantage

Two-part floor coatings have a distinct advantage over ambient air-cured coating products, in that they offer superior bonding characteristics. To understand how a two-part floor coating works, you first have to look at what is going on at the microscopic level of the floor surface.

Let us take a look at how this type of coating works by examining its effects on an existing old concrete floor that has been primed to be rebuffed with a new epoxy coating. When mixed and applied properly, the epoxy coating seeps into the porous concrete surface about 1/16th of an inch. The chemical reaction caused by mixing the epoxy resin (part 1) with the hardening agent (part 2) results in a curing process that hardens the coating and “welds” it to the concrete floor.

{If you were to saw out a 1’x1’ section of a concrete floor coated with a two-part epoxy resin, you would see with the naked eye where the floor coating infused itself into the concrete about 1/16th of an inch. By cutting the concrete floor in half, one can observe how deep the two-part floor coating has penetrated the surface.} This deep penetration is the reason why most experts recommend it over other types of floor coatings.

Keep in mind that while many floor coating paints and products may claim to contain, if they are not two-part products you will not get the best results. One-step epoxy coating and paint products contain the equivalent of pre-cured epoxy, and lack the activating agents needed to form a chemical bond with the substrate. It is undeniable that they will harden the surface, but you can assure that it cannot do it as well as two-part coatings can.

Epoxy Floor Coatings vs. Polyurethane Coatings

Epoxy-based coatings have been proven to provide better adhesion and chemical-proofing than polyurethane coatings. Nevertheless, both products can turn any surface scratch-proof in the same span of waiting time. While polyurethane coatings offer a higher resistance to UV lighting, their softer nature makes them more prone to gouging than epoxy floor coatings.

Hence, with its stronger binding, weather-proofing, and damage-proofing properties, epoxy-based floor coatings are a better alternative for industrial and commercial floors that receive heavy beatings on a daily basis.

Our heavy-duty industrial epoxy floor coating is not only 100% solid-based but possesses all the benefits of two-parts coating that we have mentioned in this article. Not only that, we’ve made sure to add in rubber additives to make your floors more shock and damage-resistant. These high-performance coatings are resistant to alkalis, gasoline, and other corrosive substances.
