Commercial spaces require state-of-the-art floor coatings designed to meet their specific needs. There is no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to commercial floor coatings due to the fact that each industry has different needs. Some industries need more impact resistance while others need electric conductivity. It’s crucial that you work with experienced floor coating professionals in order to ensure that your floor coating will perform and meet industry needs.
Conductive Coatings For Minimal Risk Of Static Discharge
Floor coatings on their own tend to be insulative. For industries such as manufacturing, pharmaceutical, and electronics, it’s important to have a floor coating that can counteract the threat of static electricity and resulting heat, sparks, and fire. When conductive components like silver or copper are mixed into a floor coating, it can reduce the risk of static discharge.
Professionals will work with you in order to determine the conductivity needed for your space. Mixing conductive materials with epoxy resins or silicone requires expertise, as adverse reactions can occur. In addition to helping with conductivity, these floor coatings are also resilient to mechanical and thermal stress.
Antimicrobial Coatings For Increased Sanitation
Medical, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage industries require antimicrobial coatings to maintain a sanitary environment. Since concrete is such a porous material, it’s easy for microbes like bacteria, fungi, and viruses to settle inside, grow, and impact the health and safety of the space.
Antimicrobial coatings have chemical agents that inhibit the growth of microbes. They minimize the presence of harmful bacteria and microbes. They are resistant to moisture, preventing fungal growth and maintaining their strength for years on end.
Chemical Resistant Coatings To Stave Off Erosion
Commercial floor coatings in general tend to be resistant to chemicals. This makes them excellent for all industrial facilities, especially laboratories and auto repair shops. Chemical spills present dangers to people and erode and stain concrete. This weakens your concrete floors and negatively impacts your employees, your customers and clients, your building, and more.
Commercial floor coatings create a protective barrier between your concrete floors and the corrosive chemicals that would otherwise be absorbed by the concrete. You still need to clean any chemical spills in a timely manner, as they can impact the floor coating if left untreated, but you can count on the coating for increased protection.
Water Resistant Coatings To Handle Frequent Spills
Pools and spas, communal showers and restrooms, commercial kitchens, beverage producers, and more are all industries with a demand for floor coatings that can handle frequent water spills. With how porous concrete is, frequent exposure to moisture can lead to damage such as cracking, scaling, spalling, and discoloration.
Floor coatings can meet industry needs by protecting concrete from water damage. Should anything be spilled or splashed onto the floors, it is easy to simply wipe the spill up, without it seeping into the concrete. For facilities like public pools where slippery floors are a concern, anti-slip additives can be mixed into the coating to increase traction.
Impact Resistance For High Traffic Areas
Some businesses do not need to concern themselves as much with impact resistance. However, others need commercial floor coatings that can meet industry needs for being able to withstand heavy machinery and high volumes of traffic.
Floor coatings are very durable and able to withstand the wear and tear of commercial spaces. With increased strength, your floors will be able to last you longer and need fewer repairs with less maintenance. This is especially important for areas that would be highly inconvenienced or where it would be a safety hazard to have floors in need of frequent repair.
