When choosing a concrete floor covering for an industrial setting, there are a few standard options—options commonly implemented in industrial capacities across the world. Arguably the two most popular options are epoxy and polyurethane. Both have particular strengths to consider, and there’s not a one-size-fits-all option. What we recommend is looking carefully at both materials to see which one makes the most sense for your company. In this post, we’ll highlight some key attributes of both concrete floor coatings.
Epoxy can provide a durable, inexpensive, and long-lasting solution for industrial flooring needs; it’s the concrete floor covering of choice in garages, car parks, and countless manufacturing centers. With that said, there is one important caveat to offer about epoxy as a concrete floor coating: It must be installed correctly for it to do its job, and that means adequately preparing the concrete floor. If you plan on installing epoxy as a DIY project, we highly recommend you take a moment to read this post and get up to speed on what proper concrete floor preparation entails.
