Industrial properties require concrete floors that are stronger than average. Heavy equipment, 24-hour traffic, potential spills, and the requirement for a clean workplace necessitate that the foundation be coated to prevent undue safety hazards, stains, and wear. In consideration of industrial needs, epoxy researchers created coatings to face these heavy-duty issues. With assistance from West Coast Epoxy, companies in San Mateo can take advantage of these advanced flooring materials to protect and preserve their building foundations.
Demands of Industrial Epoxy
Extra toughness is an important specification for industrial grade flooring. Such treatment calls for the thickest applications of epoxy coatings. This often means trowel grade epoxies that are installed to be extra durable. The advantage of such material is that it better endures surface stressors and strengthens the top layer of concrete with tightly interconnected polymers that act as a shield to protect and preserve the building’s foundation.
Certain industries desire protection from chemical vapors or spills. Others need their floors to be impervious to liquid and oil absorption. Still others require spotless clean rooms, without cracks, or pits in the concrete that can cover contaminants. Epoxy coatings can solve all of these problems, depending on the formulations employed in the topcoat. West Coast Epoxy has the solution to keep your floors spotless and preserved and protected from industrial operations.
Safety in industry is necessary to preserve health, life, and productivity. Safety also minimizes overhead. Epoxy coatings are available in a vast range of colors to clearly demarcate secure zones, transit lanes, and work areas. By laying permanent striping, pattern, symbols, and color, West Coast Epoxy delineates the entire facility in a useful way. Safety may also need non-slip surfaces. We can do that, based on how we apply the topcoat. Trust our experience to make your industrial floor a better, safer place for employees and visitors.
