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. Applying concrete sealers during winter and cold weather can reduce the effectiveness of the product; hence, we formulated SC-1100 to address exactly that product by increasing its cure rate. 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-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. In addition, this polymer coating serves as an excellent tank liner for solutions up to 98% sulphuric acid.

Crystal Loc

box-imageCrystal loc was made to help protect different types of concrete-based structures such as cement blocks, concrete slabs, underground vaults, basements, roofs, walls, pillars, sculptures, and more. Its deep penetration water-based formulation helps damage-proof any concrete surface without diminishing its natural look. Use Crystal Lok on concrete in any location where the seepage is not caused by cracking or other structural flaws.

Selecting the Best Industrial Floor Coating

If you are a commercial business or manufacturer looking for a protective coating for your shop floor, you may be considering whether to use an. 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

Two-part floor coatings have a distinct advantage over ambient air-cured coating products, in that they offer superior bonding characteristics. The amazing properties of two-part floor coating can only be understood by diving into how its molecules work.

Consider the example of an existing aged concrete floor that has been prepped to receive a new epoxy floor 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 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 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.

Epoxy Floor Coatings vs. Polyurethane Coatings

In general, epoxy floor coatings offer better adhesion and chemical resistant properties than polyurethane coatings. Nevertheless, both products can turn any surface scratch-proof in the same span of waiting time. Polyurethane coatings, on the other hand, have been shown to display stronger anti-UV properties compared to epoxy based coating. However, this advantage comes with a major drawback. Surfaces applied with polyurethane coating are more prone to damage due to its softer character.

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.
