Benefits of Industrial Floor Coatings
Some of the benefits you receive include decreased spalling of concrete and reduced maintenance cost. Floor coating allows easier cleaning of floors and increase morale of employees when working in an aesthetically pleasing area. One of TMI’s customers called recently to have the floors coated in the Manufacturing area and Machine Shop because he wanted to “create a nicer environment for the employees working in those areas.” When the TMI salesperson called to follow up after the job was completed, he said, “now we will sweep and mop to keep it looking nice!”
Epoxy floor coatings are commonly used in manufacturing facilities. Epoxy floors can be applied smooth with an orange peel finish or with aggregate for safety. Epoxies have good gloss retention.
Cementitious urethane floor toppings are most often used in commercial kitchens or other areas where a heavy industrial resinous flooring is needed for durability. Cementitious urethane floor topping cures more quickly than epoxies and have a matte or satin finish.
