Floor coatings are tough, protective layers used in applications where heavy surface wear or corrosion is expected. Typical applications include warehouses, chemical plants, and manufacturing floors. Floor coatings can also be used to:
- brighten or define areas of facilities
- mark traffic aisles
- route traffic
- cover stained concrete
A floor coating such as epoxy is suitable for resurfacing applications and patching exposed surfaces. Epoxies require clean surfaces and exhibit high strength and low shrinkage during curing. Setting styles include single-component, dual-component, thermosetting, and radiation curing. Polyurethane floor coatings can be thermoplastic or thermosetting.
