Epoxy flooring involves the application of a resinous material to concrete which creates a non-porous and smooth floor surface. Epoxy flooring is often times cast or poured in placed to cure which allows it to set. Epoxy flooring systems are very resistive to chemicals and can be decorative.
3 MATERIALS OF RESINOUS FLOORING
The 3 most common types of resinous flooring are epoxy, polyurethane, and acrylic. All three are two-part systems consisting of a resin and a hardener material. The two parts are mixed just prior to application, and a chemical reaction between them causes the mixture to begin hardening immediately.
HIGHLY USED EPOXY FLOORING SYSTEMS
Thin Mil Floor Coatings are high performance floor products that offer excellent abrasion resistance and adhesion. Thin Mil Floor Coatings are for light traffic applications and can be attractive in appearance, chemical resistance and easy to clean.
High Build are for heavy traffic applications. High Build systems are typically used in warehouses. distribution facilities, dealerships, aircraft hangers as well as other medium duty areas.
The High Build floor systems can be used for any application that are too rough for thin mil but do not require speciality coverage or not damaged enough to require a heavy duty resurfacer. The flooring system is applied at a heavy mil thickness which cures to a very durable surface. Topcoats are optional on High Build flooring systems and can be applied depending on flooring usage and other requirements.
Heavy duty Epoxy Mortar Systems repair moderate to severely spalled, pitted or otherwise deteriorated concrete floors. They provide sanitary, skid-resistant and highly impact resistant surfaces, exhibiting impressive compressive strength and point-load capacity.
