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. The clear option is an excellent topcoat for stained concrete. FDA-approved for food-handling areas. Mfg., distributed and sold exclusively by Construction Systems Supply.

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. 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-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. Resistant to gasoline, jet fuel, diesel fuel, and other petroleum products, Eco-Floor 3300 is the ideal choice for harsh industrial floor environments, chemical environments, 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.

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. Understanding these differences will help ensure you pick the best industrial floor coating for the job at hand.[/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. 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 is why two-part industrial epoxy coatings work so well.

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. 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. 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. These high-performance coatings are resistant to alkalis, gasoline, and other corrosive substances.
