Epoxy Floor Coatings Supply North Yarmouth, ME

Industrial Floor Coatings

To provide excellent anti-impact ability and resistance to wear and tear, we built our Eco-Floor solutions from 100% solids. Our formula includes a rubber additive and is created using Novolac Technology. Eco-Floor all-purpose coatings can effectively weather-proof and chemical-proof any surface. It can protect any metal or concrete surfaces against corrosive substances such as gasoline, alkalis, and sewage. The Food and Drug Administration has deemed many of our products to be food –grade. This accreditation means that our customers can apply it even in areas where food products are handled. We offer a wide variety of epoxy-based floor coating including industrial and commercial applications.

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. Eco-Floor 1500 is ideal for concrete floor coatings for kitchens, food processing plants, showrooms, supermarkets, garages, airplane hangars, and more. 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 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. 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. Crystal Loc works best on structures where post-construction damage is not due to engineering and construction 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]

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. 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. 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. 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

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. 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.

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.
