Industrial Coatings Including Epoxy, Urethane and Polyaspartic
This category of flooring can fall under the heading of resinous but we feel it deserves its own place. Coatings usually consist of a two component product that is mixed to create a timed checmical reaction resulting in a durable product. The most common product is referred to as “epoxy”. Epoxy is only one type of these resinous coatings. There are many characteristics of these coatings that must be considered when deciding what products to use.
Epoxy, Urethane, and Polyaspartic floors are all liquid finish floors. Epoxy is available in solvent borne, water borne, and 100% solids. The percentage of solids is important and the best way to think about the quality of the product you are receiving. The higher the percentage of solids the less product will “evaporate” after curing.
Along with the different types of chemicals, there are options for anti-microbial, aggregate inclusion, decorative finishes, and anti-slip additives. Based on your need, we can recommend a product that will provide the necessary characteristics.
