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 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. SC-1100 Fast Set helps eliminate outgassing and bubbles. 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-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]

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.

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.

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. 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.

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.

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. Not only that, we’ve made sure to add in rubber additives to make your floors more shock and damage-resistant. These high-performance coatings are resistant to alkalis, gasoline, and other corrosive substances.
