Own a Warehouse? Benefits of Using Floor Epoxy Lining

Posted on

If you own a warehouse, you should consider using floor epoxy lining. Below is information on what this is, as well as some benefits of choosing this. You can then hire a company to install this lining for you.

Floor Epoxy Lining

Floor epoxy floor lining is made of two parts: water-based, solvent-based, or solid-based. It includes resin and a hardener which makes it work much like glue. There are various epoxies used and they can be difficult to understand. Because of this, you should always hire a professional to install this floor lining for you. This professional will come to your warehouse to determine the best type of epoxy lining to use on your floors. 

To put the epoxy lining on the floor they will first thoroughly clean the floor. If there is hardened debris on the floor, they will use a scraper to remove it. They will then wet the floor and place an acid etching mixture on the floor. A scrub brush and etching machine is used to get the floor ready. This helps the epoxy adhere to the floor better. The epoxy is then installed, which is generally rolled onto the floor. Once dry they will put on a second coating in many cases. 

Epoxy Floor Lining Benefits

There are many benefits of choosing epoxy floor lining for your warehouse. One, the flooring will have a high gloss and look much brighter. The floor will also be much more durable with this lining and will handle heavy duty use. Also, if something heavy is dropped on the floor it will not cause damage. The flooring is also resistant to fire and heat. This flooring is easy to maintain as it does not stain and is easy to clean. 

The surface is smooth and if you drop oil or other liquids on the floor, they will not cause stains. If you spill water on the floor, it will bead making it easy to remove. Epoxy floor lining also makes the floor much safer for your employees because the surface will not be slippery. You can choose to add colors to different areas of your warehouse. For example, you may want to designate a certain color to forklift areas and another color that shows employees where it is safe to walk.
