Epoxy flooring or polyurethane flooring is done on floor and wall surface. Because of its no maintenance cost, and easy to clean, it is very economical. It cuts down on amount of lighting needed in plant. Epoxy flooring helps to control concrete dusting and protects the substrate from chemical and physical degradation. Due to its higher abrasion resistant to surface, there are several industries where epoxy coating is done.
Better protective coatings are available but not as common, field applied, brush-on, roll-on, or trowel-on coatings. Floor epoxy coating consists of a base and a curing agent. The two components are mixed in a certain ratio. A chemical reaction occurs between the two parts generating heat (Exothermic Reaction) and hardening the mixture into an inert, hard plastic. Often concrete epoxy coating are top coated with latex or urethanes that will retain their color and attractive gloss. Epoxy Flooring are ideal for restoring eroded concrete and for use in high traffic and severe condition areas. Epoxy resin flooring creates a strong, dense surface at a fraction of the cost of slab replacement
