Floor Coatings

Home » Challenges of Industrial painting in confined spaces

Floor coatings are opaque coatings that are applied to a multitude of different flooring. They are tough, protective layers used in applications where heavy surface wear or corrosion is expected, to seal and protect different surfaces, or to update an area. Floor coating options can quickly become overwhelming, particularly in a commercial setting. Not only are there many types of floor coatings to fit different needs, but you must take other things into consideration such as: durability, cost, maintenance, safety, compliance, aesthetics & more. Depending on your industry, floor coatings can go through a significant amount of wear and tear from heavy machinery or chemicals while other industries demand higher levels of safety precautions and need slip resistant options. It is important to view your needs from all angles. JMA Painters can assist you through each step of this process to determine exactly what floor coating is appropriate for your business. The two most common types of floor coatings are epoxy and polyurethane. Most other options include a base of one of these options. Depending on your particular needs, a combination of both could even be necessary. 

Epoxy Floor Coatings

Epoxy floor coatings are very common and are used in most commercial and industrial settings. These coatings are made up of epoxy resin and hardener that create a thick, tough, durable finish. Epoxy coatings create a shiny high gloss surface that can withstand heavy and constant traffic. Other benefits include: easy maintenance, resistance to harsh chemicals and stains, can withstand high levels of both heat and cold, and are non toxic. Epoxy floor coatings are an excellent choice for sealing concrete floors, steel, and other industrial materials.

Polyurethane Floor Coatings

Polyurethane floor coatings are similar to epoxy floor coatings in that they both protect your base material’s surface from corrosion, weathering, abrasion and other processes that cause material to degrade overtime. Polyurethane has more options in aesthetics such as options for glossy or muted, opaque or transparent, color options, and is a better medium for anti slip aggregates. Other benefits include: scratch resistant, can tolerate larger temperature swings, and can handle high levels of humidity better than epoxy.
