When it comes to your industrial space, you need floors that can stand up to heavy equipment, high foot traffic, and the potential for impact and abrasions. It's where epoxy comes in. Companies are increasingly turning to industrial epoxy flooring in Cleveland, Chattanooga, and surrounding areas in TN, thanks to its durability and safety properties. Here's a look at all you can take advantage of when you do the same and choose epoxy.
What to Know About Epoxy Flooring Durability
Epoxy is designed to take a beating. It's made from a combination of resins and hardeners that bond with each other and with the floor. It also covers your floor in one smooth and continuous coating. This means there are no pores or seams and weight gets distributed evenly.
Epoxy is therefore the ideal choice for crack- and scratch-resistant. It's even water-proof, so moisture won't leak down below and damage the substrate. Up above, it can withstand weight and pressure of 10,000 pounds per square inch (psi) or more. Whether you drive and park vehicles on it, store palettes of heavy boxes, drag equipment, or potentially drop tools, epoxy can withstand it all. In contrast, concrete is only able to handle a fraction of that weight - about 3,000 to 5,000 psi.
Epoxy is so strong you can even spill corrosive chemicals on it, or oil, gas and other liquids and it won't stain or damage the floors. Yet, at the same time, if there is a spill, it's easy to clean with a mop or broom. It doesn't require any special maintenance.
Another reason to consider epoxy? It's textured, so it can improve traction, and you can even opt for additional non-skid aggregates to be added to further improve worker safety. This makes epoxy flooring the safer, more durable choice for your industrial location.
