In certain areas of your home or business, carpet, tile and vinyl flooring may make perfect sense. But in areas where heavy traffic, heavy loads and high impact reign, carpet, tile and vinyl flooring just won’t do. You need more resilient flooring and durable epoxy, polyurethane, polyurea-polyaspartic coatings are the best solution.

Two-Part Industrial Grade Coatings

Industrial grade epoxy, polyurethane and polyurea-polyaspartic floor coatings typically come in two-parts: Part A and Part B. Part A is a resin and Part B is a catalyst or hardener. When mixed, a chemical reaction ensues. When applied in multiple layers to the concrete substrate, the mixture cures and bonds with the concrete beneath. The end result is a seamless and extremely durable floor coating.

So where can epoxy, polyurethane and polyurea-polyaspartic flooring help you?

Interior and Exterior Residential Spaces

In high traffic residential areas like driveways, walkways, patios and garages, these coatings are an excellent solution. Not only are they durable enough to withstand frequent foot and vehicular traffic, they resist chemical staining from oil, grease and tires and withstand fading due to sun exposure. Epoxy, polyurethane and polyurea-polyaspartic coatings also make for super easy cleaning. Usually a mop and water will do it!

“Moisture-mitigating” epoxy coatings can also provide a moisture barrier when applied in basements. This is important given that the transmission of moisture in basement concrete may be the source of Sick Building Syndrome and other indoor air quality issues.

Interior and Exterior Commercial & Retail Spaces

Because epoxy, polyurethane and polyurea-polyaspartic flooring provides excellent flexural strength (resistance to bending), abrasion resistance, and stain resistance, this flooring is also very popular in commercial and retail spaces. Many of these areas are exposed to extreme traffic, heavy loads, heavy impacts and harsh environments.

Examples include:

  • High foot traffic on office floors and foot traffic/pallet jacks in grocery stores
  • Heavy loads and high impact in the form of forklifts and vehicular traffic in warehouses, airplane hangars and parking lots
  • Harsh chemical environments in automotive garages
  • Extreme foot traffic and the propensity for staining in bakeries and commercial kitchens
  • Low temperature exposure in refrigeration units
  • High and low temperature exposure and safety requirements for wheelchair ramps

Commercial grade epoxy, polyurethane and polyurea-polyaspartic flooring prevents dents, scratches, staining and peeling in spaces exposed to these extremes.

The Wrap

Finding durable flooring for your space is important. Epoxy, polyurethane and polyurea-polyaspartic coatings are a simple and relatively inexpensive solution to mitigating flooring issues. This is especially true for spaces exposed to high traffic, heavy loads, high impacts, high moisture and extreme environments like commercial and retail spaces.
