Concrete may appear strong and impermeable, but it is actually a porous material. This porosity is one flaw that is evident in concrete floorings. Constant traffic can wear down the porous surface, while water can seep through the pores and eat away the inner concrete foundation. This concrete vulnerability can be countered by epoxy resin flooring that makes for seamless concrete floors.
Top-of-the-line epoxy resin technology is now making it possible to create seamless floors that suit every kind of flooring requirement, giving facility managers the freedom to choose the right textures, colors and performance quality for their floors. Epoxy resin flooring materials work to create seamless floors because of the unique reaction taking place when liquid epoxy polymers are transformed to solid formulations during application.
Performance-wise, it is often the facility’s demand on its floors that dictate what application will be suitable. The good thing about epoxy resin flooring systems is that they can be customized to suit the facility’s current floor conditions. Add to that, they can also be fine-tuned depending on the facility’s maintenance and cleaning program, the conditions of the facility location, the scarcity or frequency of floor traffic conditions, and even the amount of chemical and elemental exposures that the floors are often subjected to. This flexibility is possible because epoxy resin flooring formulations have good adhesion and high resistance to heat and chemical exposures.
For seamless floors, epoxy resin flooring systems deliver unlimited design possibilities, with a wide choice in design, color, finish and gloss ratings, to name just a few. It can also be combined with aggregates to achieve more design options.
