Eco-floor 1500 Coating and Repair Grout

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. 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. 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-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-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. 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

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]

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

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.

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 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 deep penetration is the reason why most experts recommend it over other types of floor coatings.

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. 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. 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

Epoxy-based coatings have been proven to provide better adhesion and chemical-proofing 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.

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.

Our heavy-duty industrial epoxy floor coating is not only 100% solid-based but possesses all the benefits of two-parts coating that we have mentioned in this article. 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.
