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. 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. 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-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. 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. Understanding these differences will help ensure you pick the best industrial floor coating for the job at hand.[/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

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
