We believe that our industrial epoxy flooring can be the flooring solution you need. Allow us to tell you why.
Preparation For Industrial Grade Epoxy
Like all flooring, it all starts with the preparation of the concrete slab that the industrial epoxy flooring will be placed on. Our industrial epoxy floor coating contractors have decades of combined experience with this process so you can have peace of mind knowing that your floor will be installed correctly. It begins with a process of filling all cracks with a material that won’t allow cracks to grow or show in the final coat of epoxy. After this material is dry, the next process is a pass of diamond wheel grinding to open the pores in the concrete or a shot blasting process to profile the concrete. This allows for the epoxy to form a superior bond to the concrete slab so it won’t lift or waver from heavy objects or traffic. Next comes a coating of epoxy primer that strengthens the bond between the base coat of epoxy and the concrete even further. Depending on the type of industrial epoxy floor coating you choose, there will be multiple base coats and top coat that acts as a sealer for your industrial epoxy floor coating. This process has been proven to make your epoxy last for up to 20 years!
The Benefits Of Using Industrial Epoxy Floor Coatings
While industrial epoxy flooring is a great way to strengthen your concrete slab, that isn’t all it is good for.

Not only does industrial epoxy floor coatings make your facility a stunning and safe workplace, but it also can also save you money with an excellent lifetime and low-cost install. Below is a more in-depth look at the benefits your facility can gain by making the switch to an industrial epoxy floor coating.
Endless Design Options
Just because our industrial epoxy flooring is durable, stain resistant, and able to last for decades doesn’t mean that it has to be ugly or boring. We believe that our industrial epoxy flooring is an art form that can use different colors, flakes and stunning metallic pigments to transform your surface without giving up performance. We can even design your industrial epoxy floor coating to create a traffic line for your forklifts and create barriers and walkways for your workers, creating a safe and productive work environment.
Industrial epoxy flooring offers a flooring system that can withstand damage better than any traditional concrete floor covering that is available on the market. This is because the resin is modified with hardeners to create a surface that is near impenetrable so even impact from heavy objects or constant traffic from heavy vehicles such as forklifts and even aircraft won’t chip or crack the epoxy. Not only is the industrial epoxy flooring strong, but it also makes the actual concrete slab up to 300 percent stronger and last typically 2 to 3 times longer than if it was bare concrete.
Resistance To Harsh Chemicals
A bare concrete slab that is exposed to the harsh chemicals that may be present can cause serious structural and environmental damage to your facility. Bare concrete is an extremely porous surface and will absorb any liquid it is exposed to. When this happens it will break down your concrete and even leak into the ground underneath causing serious environmental issues. When using an industrial epoxy floor coating, the epoxy will act as a barrier and isolate all liquids on the surface. This will make for easy clean up as well as protect your concrete from serious damage.
Industrial strength epoxy flooring can withstand the harsh environment of an industrial facility longer than any other type of traditional concrete floor covering. This is because the superior bond that is formed with the concrete slab paired with the high-grade materials we use for all of our clients. The misconception of epoxy lasting a few years comes from the improper preparation and low-grade materials that are used in the DIY kit you can buy at the local hardware store. Leave your project to our industrial epoxy floor coating contractors and enjoy your flooring for decades to come.
Brightens An Area
Industrial epoxy floor coatings offer a special feature that not many traditional floor coatings offer. The top layer of epoxy acts as an extremely durable coating but also is an extremely reflective surface. This makes an area that industrial epoxy flooring is placed even brighter; depending on how bright of a color you choose it can be very bright, all without the use of extra lighting fixtures. Not only does this provide an extra safety feature, but it will also save you money on your electricity bill!
Seamless And Safe

For a soiled floor, all that is required is a simple sweep with a dust mop or soft bristle broom and a traditional mop if any liquids are present. For a more soiled floor, remove any debris a spray down with a hose and use a stiff bristle brush to remove any stains that stick.
