When you're evaluating options for your industrial floors, be sure to consider epoxy. A growing number of businesses, from Chesterfield to Richmond and surrounding areas in VA, are installing industrial epoxy flooring for a range of reasons. The biggest one? Durability. When it comes to strength, epoxy stands apart. Here's how far.
What to Know About Epoxy Flooring Durability
Epoxy is hard to beat in an industrial environment. Since it's applied in one even, continuous coating, it's seamless and non-porous. This means it's water-proof and resistant to all kinds of spills, from oil and gas to chemicals and more. Nothing will seep below, damaging the substrate. Meanwhile, the coating above will look polished and professional with minimal cleaning and maintenance.
In addition, epoxy can take a lot of abuse - 10,000 pounds per square inch (psi) of it. This means high foot traffic, impact, abrasions, heavy equipment, and other common stressors in an industrial setting are no match for epoxy. Concrete, on the other hand, can only withstand around 3,000 to 5,000 psi. Epoxy is therefore two to three times stronger, making epoxy flooring the ideal choice for industrial businesses.
Since epoxy is applied in a continuous manner, there are no weak points. Weight is distributed evenly across the entire floor, allowing it to withstand even the most rigorous, demanding environment. Tools being dropped, boxes dragged, and equipment driven across your epoxy are all no problem. It won't crack, peel, or get damaged. At the same time, thanks to the many options for colors and finishes, it will look beautiful, too.
