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-imageSC-1100 Fast Set is a 100% solids low viscosity primer designed for sealing concrete. Its fast cure rate makes it ideal for cold weather applications. SC-1100 Fast Set is a 100% solids, low viscosity hybrid Novolac epoxy primers designed for deep penetration and sealing of concrete surfaces. SC-1100 Fast Set helps eliminate outgassing and bubbles. SC-1100 Fast Set can be applied to green concrete as young as seven days based on ASTM F1869-10 with a moisture vapor emission of <10lbs.

Eco-floor SC3300

box-imageA durable, tough, ceramic coating, Eco-Floor 3300 is engineered for concrete and metal floors requiring superior long-term chemical resistance such as aircraft hangars, service garage floors, 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. Use Crystal Lok on concrete in any location where the seepage is not caused by cracking or other structural flaws.

Choosing The Correct 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. Hence, each application may require a particular type of floor coating. The only way for you to decide which one is more suitable for your project is by knowing and understanding these variations.[/ImageWithContent]

Most industrial coatings can be bought as a two-part mixture, meaning you will be provided with the two of the main ingredients of the product separately. This type of coating is best whether you are using epoxy or polyurethane coating.

The Two Part Epoxy Advantage

One advantage of two-part floor coatings over ambient air-cured coating products is that they provide a stronger hold on surfaces. The amazing properties of two-part floor coating can only be understood by diving into how its molecules work.

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. If used correctly, the epoxy coating can be expected to penetrate the concrete surface by as much as 1/16th of an inch. The reason it is better to use two-part floor coatings is that the chemical reaction of the curing between the epoxy resin and hardening agent results to a stronger bond between it and the concrete surface.

{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.

However, you must be careful in buying epoxy or polyurethane-based floor coating as, although some manufacturers would claim that they can do just as well, you can only achieve the same results with two-part coatings. 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. They may make a surface harder, but will not be as durable as a two-part floor coating a system.

Epoxy Floor Coatings vs. Polyurethane Coatings

Epoxy-based coatings have been proven to provide better adhesion and chemical-proofing than polyurethane coatings. Both types of industrial floor coatings are resistant to abrasions and have relatively similar cure times. While polyurethane coatings offer a higher resistance to UV lighting, their softer nature makes them more prone to gouging than epoxy floor coatings.

Because of their superior adhesion, water and chemical resistant properties, and resistance to gouging, epoxy floor coatings are the best choice for coating industrial floors, and commercial floors where heavy machinery is in use and durability is a concern.

Construction System Supply’s Eco-Floor industrial epoxy floor coatings are 100% solids and are the ideal types of two-part coatings that this article presents. They are formulated with rubber additives for added impact and wear resistance. You can rest assured that any surface you apply Construction System Supply’s floor coatings to will resist the strongest and most corrosive substances.
