Epoxy Floor Coatings Supply Unalaska, AK

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. Ideal for a wide variety of concrete and metal surfaces, these high-performance industrial and commercial epoxy floor coatings can be applied to damp surfaces and are resistant to gasoline, sewage, alkalis, and other corrosive substances. 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-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-imageSC-1100 Fast Set is a 100% solids low viscosity primer designed for sealing concrete. 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 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. 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. Crystal Loc works best on structures where post-construction damage is not due to engineering and construction flaws.

Selecting the Best Industrial 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

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.

Consider the example of an existing aged concrete floor that has been prepped to receive a new epoxy floor 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 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. 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. Both types of industrial floor coatings are resistant to abrasions and have relatively similar cure times. 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.

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.

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. They are formulated with rubber additives for added impact and wear resistance. You can rest assured that any surface you apply Construction System Supply’s floor coatings to will resist the strongest and most corrosive substances.
