What are the tools that epoxy floor contractors use to do their jobs? When they are called to do a hundred different things, such as repairing or restoring a facility’s epoxy floor systems, or maybe installing seamless epoxy flooring to industrial plants. How about when manufacturing floors need to be made more resistant to toxic chemical spills?
Indeed, epoxy floor contractors may spend their time servicing exterior floors and decks, or laying on a fresh stain in hallways, or re-coating the parking area. But in all these activities they need specific tools or supplies to make it possible for them to work on these various tasks.
Sandpapers and screwdrivers are some of the most common tools in all epoxy floor contractors’ toolboxes. However, there are a few other must-haves that epoxy floor contractors won’t leave without. A scraper or putty knife is often one of these must-haves. It’s like the Swiss Army knife for epoxy floor contractors. It can be used to apply putty compounds and scrape paints from floors and other surfaces.
A supply of masking tape is also ever-present in epoxy floor contractors’ tool kits. It’s a very handy material to have around, particularly in providing protection for non-painted areas or keeping drop cloths and sheets in place. Tapes with microbarrier edges particularly prevent paint from bleeding through the surface and can assure a straight boundary where paint colors or finishes meet.
Another useful supply is the patching compound, which either powdered or pre-mixed, provides excellent performance in restoring cracks and holes prior to surface painting.
These materials, which may seem unremarkable on their own, actually make it possible for many jobs to be successfully completed by epoxy floor contractors.
