Why does California Custom Coatings recommend epoxy for covering and protecting concrete floors? Take it from one manufacturer who simply explained that epoxy is “used for industrial concrete floors because of its extreme durability.” That durability is a double benefit for everyone from homeowners to industry, and here we explain why.
Protect Your Concrete Floors
First, epoxy has durability because it has a high level of cohesion. That means that the epoxy molecules stick together and resist the effect of impacts. Although only a thin coat of material is applied to the concrete, it still absorbs the impact of heavy wagons, carts, lifts and transport equipment. It has the same effect with falling tools, materials and product. This minimizes the stresses striking your floor by spreading these forces out over a wider surface. As a result, it “holds” your concrete together, letting it last longer with fewer cracks, and less dust or deformities.
Less Spent on Coatings
When you use genuine epoxy coatings, their powerful cohesion also means that they stick well to your concrete. That means that these coatings last longer, no matter what you drive on or do to the top of your floors. So not only do you save your concrete, but you also invest in a protectant that is a long-term solution for your workspace. And that advice applies whether it’s just a family garage or a giant industrial facility.
