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 is a 100% solids, low viscosity hybrid Novolac epoxy primers designed for deep penetration and sealing of concrete surfaces. 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. 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-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. 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

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 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. 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. You can rest assured that any surface you apply Construction System Supply’s floor coatings to will resist the strongest and most corrosive substances.
