Commercial epoxy flooring products applied by Elite Epoxy Floors, serving the Kansas City metro area, are very different from those found in home improvement stores. They are high-grade commercial and industrial strength epoxy floor coatings available to professionals. They transform a regular concrete floor that is absorbent and vulnerable into one that repels chemicals and resists damage.
Epoxy floors are one of the most durable systems on the market when high-quality materials are installed by experienced professionals. When you use Elite Epoxy Floors, your commercial epoxy flooring will be able to take some serious abuse. It can handle impact from a variety of objects, the use of heavy machinery, and will even resist the effects of heavy foot and vehicle traffic for as long as twenty years.
What Makes Commercial Epoxy Flooring So Durable?
A high-quality resin is combined with several other resins to make 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. In contrast, most kits available in Kansas City home improvement stores are epoxy paints that contain up to 50% water. Epoxy coatings that do not contain water are much harder than epoxy paints and bond better with concrete.
The application process of commercial epoxy flooring also 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.
Epoxy Floors Have Many Advantages
These coatings are not only extremely durable but have many other advantages as well. epoxy flooring is easy to clean and can be customized to be low yellowing, seamless, antimicrobial, slip-resistant, and chemical resistant. These floors will meet all of your performance needs and look amazing for years to come.
Commercial epoxy flooring is also very versatile for enhancing the aesthetics of any business, from retail and restaurants to garages and warehouses. Epoxy floors can be made to look like real marble, a single solid color, a speckled mix of colors, or granite.
