Repair Grout and Eco-floor 1500 Coating

box-imageThis quick setting epoxy-based floor coating is not only affordable, Eco-Floor 1500 has also been proven to exhibit high UV stability, excellent tensile, elongation, and compressive strength. Furthermore, it can also provide an impressive impact and wear resistance property due to its 100% solids polymer composition. 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. The clear option is an excellent topcoat for stained concrete. 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 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. 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. 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. Contrary to what the general population believes, both products have distinct features and 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]

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

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 is why two-part industrial epoxy coatings work so well.

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. The problem with pre-mixed epoxy products is that, although they make your job a bit faster, they tend to lose the ability to chemically-bond with the surface as they no longer cure on the stop. 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.

Polyurethane Coatings vs. Epoxy Floor 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. 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.
