All About Epoxy Coating and Its Maintenance

admin19/01/2021

Industrial-grade epoxy floor coatings can lower the costs and risks associated with concrete floors. In addition to providing increased resilience and protection from environmental factors, epoxy floor coatings are simple to maintain. Industry Painting Limited provides industrial floor coating contracting services to businesses and companies in the Greater Toronto Area and southern Ontario.

Types of Epoxy Floor Systems

How the epoxy is treated and applied influences the final results. The most basic method of applying an industrial-grade epoxy floor coating is to shot-blast and apply two coats of epoxy. Adding sand to the epoxy film yields a stronger coating that is also slip-resistant. Trowled epoxy systems provide additional strength and durability and are optimal choices for industrial installations and other concrete floors with heavy foot traffic or vehicular traffic. And anti-static installations lower the instances of static electricity, making them ideal options for areas with sensitive electronic equipment and areas that need to be kept clean and sanitary.

Benefits of Epoxy Floor Coatings

Industrial-grade epoxy floor coating provides multiple benefits to commercial and warehouse structures. Epoxy floor coatings are simpler to clean, leading to more sanitary working conditions. Epoxy floor coatings also dramatically reduce the amount of concrete dust released as concrete floors deteriorate. Epoxy floor coatings resist damage from chemicals, heat, water, and shock. Epoxy floor coatings last for several years, increasing the lifespan of the concrete floor in the process. Epoxy floor coatings can also withstand weights from 3,000 pounds per square inch to 10,000 pounds per square inch, making them a viable option for installations with vehicular traffic. Industrial floor coating contractors can customize the appearance of industrial-grade epoxy floor coatings, allowing for patterns and colors other than the default concrete colors.

Cleaning and Maintaining Epoxy Floor Coatings

A dust mop is the best tool for cleaning and maintaining industrial-grade epoxy floor coatings. Dirt and dust do not stick to epoxy floor coatings, so sweeping with a dust mop at least once a week is often the only action required to clean an epoxy floor coating. When working with an anti-slip epoxy floor coating, a soft-bristled broom is an acceptable alternative to a dust mop. Floors with noticeable damage – such as scratches and grooves – should be cleaned at least once a month with a vacuum or a soft-bristled broom. Spot-cleaning with paper towels is sufficient to clean up liquid spills. Only mild cleaners should be used on epoxy floor coatings; strong cleaning solutions can mar the appearance of the coating by de-glossing it or leaving film on the surface.
