Coating Concrete Flooring
A raw concrete floor is plain and higly susceptible to wear and tear. Many property owners tend to coat their concrete flooring in order to protect their investment and give it a more attractive appearance.
In commercial and industrial atmospheres, coating can have a positive impact on productivity and safety as well. Two primary types of concrete coating are urethane and epoxy coatings.
Both options provide a preventative measure for physical damage, water damage, oil, tire spinning, and damage caused by corrosive chemicals. Urethane and Epoxy coatings are both also sufficient for safety purposes, providing a non-slip surface. They can both increase light reflectivity up to 4x, which brightens the work place and lower utility costs.
Epoxy is a turn to for concrete resurfacing and concrete restoration due to the advantages listed above as well as the thickness variability it allows for. Unlike urethane coating, epoxy can be applied anywhere from 2 millimeters to over 80 millimeters thick.
It is an excellent concrete coating option for transforming the appearance of a cracked and damaged concrete floor into a gleaming, brand new look. The up to 300% increase in light reflectivity is appreciated by employers and the person responsible for paying the energy bill alike. The benefits go beyond aesthetic appeal, epoxy is an excellent protective coating. Some epoxy concrete floor coatings are even widely recognized as green and meet LEED requirements for VOC restrictions.
Epoxy is fit for a wide range of commercial and industrial applications including schools, universities, hospitals, labs, automotive showrooms, galleries, malls, manufacturing plants, retail properties, big box, and many more.
Urethane coating offers less variety when it comes to thickness of application. Urethane is rolled 40 to 50 millimeters thick in almost all cases. It also is not as good at bonding with concrete compared to epoxy alternatives.
Urethane does offer dependable heat and moisture resistance, offering a strong benefit to the food and beverage industry. It is also chemical resistant which makes for sensible application in a laboratory or industrial setting.
It is recommended as a great top coat sealer for most epoxy coatings, in many cases tripling the lifespan of unsealed epoxy, in addition to being used as a raw coating.
