Safety is always the number one priority of any industrial facility. Old concrete floors can easily become a safety hazard, especially if they are exposed to chemicals or heavy traffic on a regular basis. Traditional concrete floors are easily chipped and fractured. On a floor that experiences a lot of employee movement, even a small crater in your concrete floor can cause a significant mishap. An unprotected concrete floor makes for a poor and unsafe industrial surface. However, a concrete floor that is coated with epoxy paint can improve productivity and safety, and it will look professional, too. Bach Custom Coatings is a company that specializes in transforming dull concrete slabs into durable and aesthetically pleasing floors. We install some of the most impressive epoxy floors in Portland, Oregon. We have listed a few of the benefits and advantages of using an epoxy coating in your business or industrial workplace.
When you imagine an industrial facility, you probably envision old, cracked and stained concrete floors that haven’t been cleaned in years. With epoxy coating, you can completely transform the look, feel and function of your floors. One of the main advantages of epoxy coating is that it is extremely durable and is nearly impossible to dent, crack or chip. Vehicles can be driven over an epoxy-coated floor repeatedly without causing any damage. Epoxy also stands up very well to heavy impacts, so when you drop heavy objects on your coated concrete floor, you won’t have to worry about causing any lasting damage. A warehouse that uses fork lifts to transport heavy loads could benefit greatly from epoxy coating.
Concrete is a very porous material. Oil that is spilled on concrete will seep deep into your floors and result in a permanent stain. Concrete that is covered in water or chemicals is very slick and is not safe to walk on. Also, the craters on a heavily-used concrete floor attract all kinds of dust, dirt and debris. An epoxy-coated floor will be much easier to clean. Not only do epoxy coatings effectively repel water, chemicals, and other substances, but they can also be applied with slip-resistant finishes. Texture can be added to an epoxy coating to provide outstanding traction. You can easily designate loading zones and organize your workplace by using different-colored epoxy coatings in certain areas. On top of all of that, epoxy coatings are also heat resistant.
One of the most obvious benefits of coating your floors with high quality epoxy paint is that they will look much, much better. Concrete floors that are stained and cracked reflect poorly on your business. With an epoxy coating, you can make your floors safer while also giving them a high-gloss shine. You can select a pattern for your floor or just stick with one or two colors. Either way, it will be a major upgrade over your plain concrete surfaces. Epoxy is an affordable and effective method for enhancing your concrete floors. They require minimal maintenance, and will last for a very long time.
