Epoxy Floor Coatings Supply Oakland, CA

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. Several of our Eco-Floor products are FDA-approved for food-handling areas. We offer a wide variety of epoxy-based floor coating including industrial and commercial applications.

Great For Garage Floors

Anti-corrosive epoxy coatings can effectively protect any surface such as:

  • Service bays, garage floors, automotive showrooms, and airplane hangars
  • Supermarkets, food service areas, food processing plants
  • Warehouses
  • Breweries
  • Tank liners (for solutions up to 98% sulphuric acid)
  • Any manufacturing and industrial areas, where there is high traffic for heavy machinery such as forklifts.

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. 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. This primer can reduce vapors that can cause bubbles on the concrete coating. 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-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. 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. 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. 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]

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. 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.

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 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. 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

In general, epoxy floor coatings offer better adhesion and chemical resistant properties 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.

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. Not only that, we’ve made sure to add in rubber additives to make your floors more shock and damage-resistant. You can rest assured that any surface you apply Construction System Supply’s floor coatings to will resist the strongest and most corrosive substances.
