When your business is manufacturing, you need floors that are secure and durable. Many people think that plain concrete is such a surface, but repeated vibrations, heavy loads, and forceful impacts or caustic chemicals all create significant stresses on a foundation. This leads to chips, cracks, unexpected wear, depressions and stains. By carefully studying the different demands placed on concrete by various industries, epoxy scientists have developed coatings that protect foundations from almost any challenge. As an experienced epoxy coating company in Sacramento and Northern California, West Coat Epoxy is familiar with these solutions and has the necessary team to efficiently treat new concrete, or to renovate and protect old concrete for industrial expectations.
The Specific Demands for Industrial Epoxy
Extra strength is the first requirement for industrial level flooring. Such treatment requires the thickest applications of epoxy coatings. Usually this means trowel grade epoxies that are designed to be extra durable. The advantage of such material is that it stands up better to surface stress and strengthens the top layer of concrete with tightly interconnected polymers that act as a “safety net” to protect your building’s foundation.
Chemical protection is another consideration, based on the type of industry. By altering the ingredients in an epoxy mix, coatings are created that stand up to the harshest acids or bases. Other formulations protect against oils or solvents. Name your concern and West Coast Epoxy has an industrial-strength solution!
Safety in industry is essential to maintain life, health and productivity, with the benefit of also reducing overhead. Epoxy coatings are available in a wide range of colors, and all industries can benefit from demarcating safe zones, loading areas, traffic lanes and work zones. Using the permanent application of striping, patterns, symbols and color, West Coast Epoxy can delineate the entire work area in a meaningful way. Other floors require non-slip surfaces and this can also be accomplished, based on how we apply the topcoat.
