Benefits of Using an Epoxy Coating Product
Epoxy coatings are hard-wearing and durable solutions for home-use, or for commercial and industrial flooring. These floor coatings can be applied over concrete floors to provide a high performance, attractive surface. Epoxy coatings can be used in your basement or garage, or for a wide variety of commercial and industrial buildings-including industrial manufacturing plants, commercial facilities, warehouses, pharmaceutical manufacturing buildings, food and beverage plants, laboratories, and more. Wherever you need an attractive, long-lasting, environmentally friendly flooring option, epoxy is a great choice.
Resinous Coating Advantages
Using a seamless epoxy over your concrete floors will create a high gloss, hard wearing, and durable surface. These floor coatings offer a number of benefits and advantages from the initial installation stages to the long-term maintenance steps. For example, epoxy floor coatings are quick to install and are durable and easy to clean. Because of the many advantages that epoxy paint offers, this is an ideal flooring solution for many types of situations.
The following are some of the main advantages associated with choosing an epoxy floor coating for your home, or for a commercial or industrial building. Your new floor coating will: • Create an easy to clean, seamless surface: Epoxy products dry to become durable, seamless surfaces that can easily be wiped free of dirt, dust, and debris. Because of this ability for easy cleaning, our epoxy floor coating services are ideal for food, beverage, and pharmaceutical preparation and packaging plants. • Result in a hard-wearing and durable surface: Epoxy floor coating products turn concrete floors into a seamless and durable, high performance surface that will last for years to come. • Provide an attractive flooring surface: Epoxy floor coatings dry to a high gloss shine, and are available in a variety of different colors and styles. You can chose to use one solid color or create a decorative pattern using several colors in order to create an attractive and durable flooring solution. Another way to add to the attractiveness of your flooring is to add flecks of color to epoxy paint before it dries.
This will create a highly decorative effect, and will hide the inherent imperfections in concrete when applying an epoxy finish to your garage floor, for example. The attractiveness of basement floors can also be greatly increased by the application of epoxy. There are many ways to use epoxy creatively. A designer epoxy floor can appear metallic or marbleized, depending on the effect you want to create, providing a beautiful and highly functional surface. People have creatively used epoxy in truly beautiful ways to transform drab concrete floors into wonderfully unique features of their homes-for instance, applying clear epoxy coating over a floor covered in smooth river stones, or over shiny pennies.
• Become a chemically resistant surface: Epoxy is a chemically resistant flooring option for manufacturing plants, warehouses, and industrial plants.
• Improve safety: Epoxy products can improve safety by creating a slip, impact, heat, and fire resistant flooring solution. These high gloss coatings can also improve brightness in a work area by 300%. Granules can be added to epoxy paint to create a sandpaper-like surface which provides extra traction on garage floors in snowy or rainy weather, giving your vehicle's tires the extra grip they need to prevent dangerous slips and skids.
• Allow for designated traffic and work zones: You can use different colors of your epoxy floor coating products simultaneously to define safety zones, forklift traffic zones, and other work zones.
• Increase productivity capabilities: Using resinous flooring in a factory, warehouse, or industrial plant can reduce wear on transport vehicles, allow for faster material movement, and prevent wear and damage to the floor.
• Offer an environmentally friendly flooring solution: Epoxy is an environmentally friendly flooring solution for companies interested in choosing "green" alternatives and building materials. Epoxy flooring is a green option for your home use, too, because it is so durable and prevents wear and damage to your floor or garage. Recycling is good for the environment, but, when possible, taking care of what you already have so you don't need to replace it is even better for the environment. Plus epoxy flooring is so easy to clean, oil drips, coolant leaks, spilled antifreeze or any other environmentally hazardous materials that can collect on a garage floor can easily be wiped away and safely disposed of before they get outside as runoff.
• Allow for quick and easy application: Epoxy floors are self-leveling products. This allows either experienced professionals or do-it-yourself homeowners to apply a epoxy quickly over any new or old concrete floor. Applying epoxy is as easy as applying paint-and requires the same amount of proper prep-work. Once your concrete floor is thoroughly clean and prepped, the epoxy can be applied, dried, and ready to park your car on after a single weekend. The epoxy will provide an attractive surface that has you feeling like you're parking your car in a showroom every time you come home, year after year.
• Offer a cost efficient flooring solution: Epoxy floor installation provides an affordable flooring solution. The durable and hard wearing surface that results from epoxy floor coatings will last for years to come with little to no need for maintenance or up keep costs.

Concrete flooring is one of the most economical and innovative flooring options available today. Finishing up your flooring by simply polishing its concrete not only decreases environmental pollution but also is one of the most cost effective strategies. The popularity of concrete floors are increasing rapidly, spreading its charm on decorated facilities, warehouses, retail outlets and other constructions across the nation.
Polishing concrete flooring is a mechanical process that involves polishing and grinding, utilizing industrial diamonds to crush concrete surface down. The process involves leveling impregnating hardeners and sealers, polishing, densify and sealing the concrete floor.
Concrete is a fundamental part of every construction project irrespective of the project being a remodeling or a new construction. Any addition of extra material to the construction results in greater expense and environmental stress such as manufacturing, refining and transporting it to the job site. Hence, finishing the flooring by just polishing the concrete reduces the expense to a drastic extent.
A recent study has proved that up to 30% of the population is suffering from chemical sensitivities. The 1970s has certainly seen the "sick building syndrome" among people and today focusing on green construction is the ideal mission. Hence, resorting to polished concrete allows the benefit of no noticeable airborne contaminants and VOCs, enhancing the indoor air quality.
Yet another benefit derived from polished concrete is that it reduces the amount of artificial illumination inside the home. The smooth shiny surface on the concrete floor after polishing maximizes natural light by reflecting it, hence saving you a lot on your electricity bills. Polishing your existing cement based floor keeps your house illuminated throughout the day.
This flooring option in combination with passive solar design methodology increases thermal mass and moderates the fluctuations of daily temperature inside the house. This reduces a lot of load from the HVAC systems inside the house.
The advancement of different methodologies in concrete floor polishing has led to its skyrocketing demand from industrial plants to show rooms, retail facilities to government buildings. Dry and wet polishing methods with latest technological machineries have made it easier for people to carry the process.
Hence, choosing to resort to concrete flooring not only gives you an economical strategy to cut down your expenses, but also gives you an opportunity to enhance the air quality inside your home and lead a healthier life. Concrete flooring is also a good way to go green, as it has no ingredients that harms living orgasms, making it easier for you to contribute to the environment.

It's important for factories and other manufacturing related facilities to provide for industrial floor coatings. Floor coatings provide surface stability, environmental cleanliness as well as aesthetics. Safety is also an important factor in the need to have industrial floor coatings. Companies that provide for industrial floor coatings reduce the risk of accidents due to excess or lack of traction however after several decades, the environmental safety of using these coatings are now in question.
Industrial floor coatings provide a stable, non-broken surface (given the substrate is also hole or crack- free) for staff and products to move on. The coating also serves to protect the substrate from the wear and tear of wheel and foot traffic. Also, the smoother the surface, the faster people and products move. Coatings also provide a sense of order and cleanliness. Brighter coatings also add to the ambient lighting of the workplace. Safety comes into play because industrial floor coatings made from polyurethane or like materials provide sufficient traction to avoid accidents as against ordinary rough concrete/soil floors or overly smooth concrete/tiled flooring. Aside from commercial uses, industrial coatings are also best for gymnasiums and facilities for indoor sports.
However, the use of conventional polyurethane coatings is not without its own hazards. The material, polyurethane, that we've used for decades for industrial floor coatings is not safe in itself. The manufacture of polyurethane, a prime ingredient for industrial coatings involves the use of toxic chemicals known as isocyanates. Normally and preferably, isocyanates lose their toxicity after bonding with the other chemicals that form the polyurethane. They become inert. However, recent studies have shown that not all of the applied isocyanates completely bond with the other ingredients leaving behind what is known as post-reactive isocyanates. These post-reactive isocyanates are present in the fumes the coating generates during application on floors and other surfaces of a building.
Application personnel that lack sufficient protective equipment become susceptible to these fumes. Employees are exposed to these chemicals in minute amounts during their day-to-day interactions with the workplace and the facility's products can become tainted as well. These chemicals also leech into the environment when the coating is disposed for replacement. The effects of isocyanates of the human body include asthma, vomiting, as well as chest and throat irritation. Exposure to large amounts is fatal.
Such dangers then contradict the premise of safety on the use of polyurethane coatings. The risk was not known until recently but floor coatings have remained essential in the industry. Fortunately, new advances in technology has given rise to the manufacture of a non-toxic polyurethane alternative known as green polyurethane. Non-toxic or green polyurethane does not make use of chemically-bonded isocyanates but instead binds its ingredients at the 'nano' or atomic level. The ingredients lock together or intertwine to form an impermeable substance with the same properties as polyurethane.
Modern manufacturing techniques, also ensure that excess toxic chemicals are filtered out from the finished product. Thus choosing green polyurethane over conventional polyurethane renders the premise of safety of using industrial floor coatings complete. As green polyurethane continues to grow in popularity, floor coatings as well as other materials that use polyurethane become safer and the industries that use them can breathe safely.
John Primus is an industrial chemist from Southern California who advocates avoiding toxic industrial floor coatings for non-toxic green solutions like Green Polyurethane. John is a consultant for Hybrid Coating Technologies a Northern California high tech coatings company.

Advantages of Industrial and Commercial Floor Coatings
Epoxy coatings are used to protect new floors, update old floors, provide an attractive finish without the huge costs, and improve the durability of floors. They are usually used in hospitals and laboratories due to their sanitary yet skid-proof qualities. They also require less maintenance.
Epoxy coatings are commonly used on concrete flooring in commercial and industrial buildings. They are practical and can be decorative. They can actually be applied to both outdoor and indoor surfaces, although more commonly used indoors. They are perfect floor covering because they are hard, efficient, functional, and durable and can last for years of continuous use.
These coatings may also be used on timber, tiles, and metals. Surfaces treated with epoxy coating are expected to be resistant to acid reaction, dust, solvents, gasoline, grease, alkali, and thawing salts. Because of this, epoxy coatings are favored in industrial and commercial settings. Industrial/commercial epoxy coatings can even increase floor reflectivity by as much as three hundred percent.
High reflectivity is important in businesses because this helps them save money and energy because there is less need for additional lighting fixtures. A brighter workplace also makes employees more comfortable as well as encourages them to be more productive.
Epoxy coatings do not harm the environment either. This makes them favorable to people who are conscious about the environment. The coating also helps create a congenial, dust-free, and healthy work atmosphere. In fact, their levels of toxicity is near zero. Their chemical emissions are low; and in case of an accidental damage, they can be easily repaired.
In addition, Industrial/commercial epoxy coatings offer numerous benefits. They protect the floors against wear and tear, degeneration, damage, and chemical corrosion. They help improve the mechanical and physical properties of the floor. They are also economical as a quality of flooring that is inexpensive to purchase.
They can also withstand heavy foot traffic which is inevitable in industrial and commercial buildings. Each day, crowds of people come in and out of these buildings; so the flooring needs to be strong and sturdy in order to stay functional.
Epoxy coatings are also resistant to water and chemical spills. This makes cleanup easier and faster. Furthermore, they are resistant to fire or flame retardant. They can withstand heat up to two hundred degrees Celsius. This makes them ideal for commercial airline products, explosive production, storage areas, and fire escapes, as well.

OSHA Floor striping provides additional function to your floor by communicating critical information throughout the facility. Commonly used in manufacturing, industrial, and warehouse settings, floor striping provides visual cues for changes in the work environment. Lifetime Epoxy Floors will provide you with a custom floor striping layout in permanent or temporary solutions which are available in a variety of colors.
OSHA Safety Guidelines for Floor Marking OSHA standard 1910.22 (Walking-Working Surfaces) covers OSHA’s floor marking safety guidelines and includes the following:
Other OSHA Floor Striping Standards for Compliance
This is a very short and simple OSHA standard. In practical terms what does this mean? It’s plain that if aisles and passageways are not marked, OSHA will issue a citation. But, what type of floor marking is required? OSHA supplied additional information in a clarification letter sent to all area directors. The letter stated:
The following are considered to comply with the requirements for floor marking:
Floor marking can also be used to mark off hazardous areas, leaving all other areas open to foot traffic. The areas marked off by floor marking tape are identified as being “off limits.”
Whichever approach you use, OSHA will expect that employees to be trained to recognize and understand the meaning of the floor marking scheme being used.
Floor Striping Separates Pedestrians From Motorized TrafficWhenever there is a mix of pedestrian and motorized traffic, such as fork lifts, floor marking tape should be used to identify aisles set aside for a specific type of traffic. In a warehouse in which powered industrial trucks (fork lifts) are moving around, and going in and out of rows of storage racks, pedestrian lanes should be clearly marked. All foot traffic must remain within the marked aisles, and forklifts may not enter those pathways except at designated crossing locations.

There are very few surfaces that get more wear and tear then the factory or warehouse floor. Traditional concrete industrial floors often present many problems. Due to heavy traffic from forklifts, foot traffic, and the hauling and moving of products and machines, floors often cracked and chipped creating uneven surfaces that could lead to workplace hazards. The old porous cement surfaces were also difficult to keep clean. Today, polyaspartic/polyurea coatings have transformed workplace floors into cleaner, safer surfaces that decrease risks and create a more pleasant environment to work in.
Polyaspartic/Polyurea Coatings Fuse onto the Concrete
Technological advances developed a purebred polyurea surface. The prime coat actually soaks into the concrete when it is cured, blending it into the concrete surface. This coating becomes part of the concrete, so it will not chip or peel off due to salts or moisture pressure which is common with epoxy treatments.
Another major difference with this new surface treatment is preparation needed. With the old fashioned epoxy treatments, floors were usually shot blasted which produced high and slow spots. Epoxy often dries unevenly, leaving low areas with a thicker layer and high areas with a thinner layer. Polyurea floors require floor grinding before application. This preparation creates a smooth, flat surface with an even and consistent surface.
Flexibility improves surface performance
Polyurea coatings are engineered to be flexible, unlike epoxy. Old floor coatings often crack above expansion joints and cracks due to their brittle nature. The improved polyurea surfaces have the ability to move slightly over cracks as well as completely fill most cracks. This improvement prevents these imperfections from venting moisture pressure under the surface.
Above and Beyond OSHA Nonslip Guidelines
A nonslip aggregate can be built into each layer of the floor coating. Some surface treatments only have the aggregate built into the top layers, so after a year or so a warehouse or factory floor could become slippery and fall below the legal levels of Coefficient set by OSHA. The advanced floor treatments keep floors safe and may prevent accidents and legal headaches.
Easier to Maintain
Polyurea coatings are also engineered to minimize micro-scratches so that can trap dirt and bacteria. This smoother surface is easier to maintain and doesn't require any special cleaning treatments. Since the floor goes through a grinding procedure before surface application, the floor is even so water doesn't pool in low spots. The floor is faster and easier to clean, which results in a savings in labor costs.
All of these modern innovations result in an industrial floor that lasts longer, is safer, and is easier to maintain.

Simply put, a point load is a non-uniform load – think the wheels of a cart, or a nail tip sticking out of the bottom of a pallet. All floors have a compressive strength (load per area in pounds per square inch) that the floor can withstand before failing. A surface area significantly smaller than one square inch will take significantly less load to exceed the strength tolerance, making floor protection in this situation vital.
The physical damage and scratches caused by high point loads will appear lighter in color than the surrounding areas. This difference in appearance is mostly due to physics of light scattering over the micro-roughness of the surface within the scratch. Deeper scratches will also appear lighter for this reason, in addition, the gouge will be accentuated due to the aggregate being crushed by the point load. These scratches can also amber over time as the UV stable top coat is damaged, exposing the body coat of the floor.
Let’s look at 3 common causes of point load damage and what you can do to keep this from happening to your resinous floors.
1. Vertical drops of sharp or thin objects Significantly smaller areas can only withstand smaller loads. For example, if a one square inch of floor can withstand a compressive load of 17,500 lbs; while a 1/16” by 1/16” square area (1/256 of a square inch) area can only withstand a compressive load of less than 68 lbs.
When is this likely to happen? Dishwashing areas where utensils, pots, and pans are regularly dropped, or areas where metal tools and knives are regularly handled.
How to prevent it? Place a protective rubber mat in front of dish sinks or at workstations where drops are most likely to happen.
2. Wheels that are too small or damaged Consider a four-wheel cart on small hard wheels, each wheel having about 1/32nd of a square inch contact with the floor surface. If a floor with a 17,500 per square inch compressive load rating of 17,500 psi divided between 4 wheels at 1/32 square inch equals a point load of approximately 137 lbs per wheel. However, if a hard object like a stone is embedded in one of the wheels the point load is greatly magnified in the area of obstruction.
When is this likely to happen? Wheels that are too small for the weight of the cart or have embedded debris in them, think hospital gurneys, supply carts, delivery carts going from outdoors to inside.
How to prevent it? Use large rubber wheels on carts vs. small plastic or metal wheels. When going from areas of high debris such as outdoors roll over a sticky mat or carpet to remove debris. If excessively heavy (example: fully stocked wheeled storage shelving) store on a mat or sheet of plywood to help spread out the point load.
3. Point load applied at an angle Non-compressive point loads applied at an angle with respect to the surface take significantly less force to result in physical damage. The adhesion, tensile and flexural properties of the floor system are lower than its compressive strength. In addition, the force applied is often amplified by mechanical advantage via a combination of the object shape and the angle at which force is applied.
When is this likely to happen? Most commonly seen in manufacturing and warehouse areas, for example, when a pallet with a nail tip sticking out is dragged across the floor surface or the claw of a hammer impacts the floor.
How to prevent it? When moving pallets lift them slightly off the ground using a pallet jack or forklift or use temporary floor protection such as a layer of plastic sheeting or scrap wood.
There you are, the three most common causes of point load damage and what to do to prevent them.
To protect the floor from scratches when moving equipment, the use of temporary floor protection such as boards (or equivalent) is recommended. If using Masonite or plywood, apply a layer of plastic sheeting such as Visqueen (or equivalent) underneath the wood.
For specific compressive, tensile or flexural strength of your flooring system of choice speak to your Technical Services Manager. We’re also available to help you determine the best system for you based on how you use your space on a daily basis.
