WHAT IS A COMMERCIAL EPOXY?
A commercial epoxy floor coating is a mixture of pure solid resins that cure with the help of hardeners. Epoxy is typically made in Part A and a part B. Part A is typically the resin that makes up 2 thirds of the mixture and will not cure if applied by itself. Part B is the epoxy hardener which is mixed into part A, this is how the epoxy cures and becomes a solid structure.
Commercial epoxy flooring is typically mixed using hand drills for large commercial jobs and has many different variations of hardeners for the scenario that is presented. A perfect example of this is our quick cure commercial epoxy that can be cured enough in 1 hour for foot traffic when most basic epoxies usually take around 24 hours to accept foot traffic. This is perfect for facilities that work 24/7 and don’t have time to shut down.
HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR FLOORING
The maintenance on a commercial epoxy flooring is minimal but completely necessary. We recommend that any chemicals or moisture be removed immediately to minimalize the chances of possible deglazing. For daily maintenance, all that is required is the use of a soft bristle broom or a dust mop to remove any loose debris on your flooring. After that debris has been removed simply use a standard mop with any additives you wish to use to clean your floor. For a more soiled floor, we recommend disposing of all debris followed by a quick rinse using a hose. Our commercial epoxy flooring is resistant to all moisture so this is fine to do. If any stains remain on the floor we recommend the use of CLR OR TSP along with a stiff bristle brush moving in a circular motion until the stain has been lifted. With a commercial epoxy floor coating, your man-hours can be spent somewhere more valuable than maintenance.
HOW WE INSTALL COMMERCIAL EPOXY
The installation process of commercial epoxy flooring is a very precise process so we recommend that you leave it up to our commercial epoxy floor contractors who have decades of combined experience so you can rest assured its done correctly. Only when the preparation steps are done correctly will you enjoy the maximum potential our commercial epoxy floor coating can offer. it begins with the removal of any floor coating that may be present and the filling of cracks with a specially formulated material that fills and stops the growth of cracks. Once the material has dried, we continue on to the process of shot blasting which profiles the concrete or diamond wheel grinding which opens the pores of the concrete; both allow for the resin to form a superior bond and give the finished product a flat and seamless appearance. Next, we coat the concrete with an epoxy primer which makes the resin more suitable for the concrete. Depending on what kind of epoxy that your facility requires, the process may be a little different, so be sure to talk with your commercial epoxy floor contractor if you wish to know a little more!
