Similar to commercial epoxy flooring, industrial flooring receives all the same benefits and advantages from the resin coating, but is used in industrial environments heavy traffic areas, chemical areas, and heavy equipment or machinery.
As it is commonly applied on concrete flooring, we need to prepare the floor before the resin coating can begin.
To prime the floor, we test for moisture on the surface, as well as harmful chemicals or any oil deposits that could react with the resin.
If the floor contains an existing coating, we may need to remove the old coating as well. Lastly, we will clean the floor because if this step is omitted, the resin may not bond and cure properly, thus resulting in a shorter lifespan.
One of the most important things our flooring contractor must do is make sure the temperature and humidity of the room is consistent. The purpose of this is to ensure that the resin coating will cure properly.
