Commercial epoxy flooring is ideal for a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications. Commercial and industrial epoxy floor coatings are strong, durable finishes for concrete. They transform a regular concrete floor that is absorbent and vulnerable into one that repels chemicals and resists damage. There are many benefits to epoxy flooring in commercial settings which are quite remarkable.
The final appearance is one area in which commercial epoxy flooring excels. Epoxy is extremely versatile for enhancing the aesthetics of any business, from retail and restaurants to garages and warehouses. Epoxy application can be tricky, and roller marks, bubbles, and pinholes are nearly inevitable when applied by someone without experience. Epoxy flooring installed by Elite Epoxy Floors in Jackson County, MO can be made to look like real marble, a single solid color, a speckled mix of colors, or even granite tiles.
One of the most important factors when choosing flooring for any type of business is its durability and strength, and in this area, commercial epoxy flooring excels above the rest. Epoxy is a resin product that stands up to heavy objects being placed (or dropped) on the floor. It is shatter- and impact-resistant and it can last for decades if it is taken care of correctly. Instead of having to replace the flooring a few years down the road, it lasts for many years and won’t cause you unnecessary downtime at your business.
The application process of commercial epoxy flooring contributes greatly to its durability and longevity. Professionals use either a diamond grinder or a shot blaster to mechanically clean and abrade the floor to prepare it, ensuring that the epoxy will adhere properly to the concrete and not peel over time.
A high-quality resin is combined with several other resins to make commercial epoxy flooring. This produces a cross-linking system which makes the epoxy floor coating flexible. It doesn’t peel, chip, dent, or crack when applied properly. The coating used by professionals is generally a 2:1 mix of epoxy and a hardener. Both parts are 100% solids, meaning that the product does not contain water. Epoxy coatings that do not contain water are much harder than epoxy paints and bond better with concrete.
