Designing a floor is the first crucial step in ensuring that it not only lasts but also performs optimally in its intended environment. At EverSeal Coatings, we understand the importance of customization when it comes to floor systems. Customizing a floor involves carefully considering the specific needs a floor must meet, from chemical resistance to heat and cold tolerance, traffic levels, substrate conditions, and visual requirements.
Choosing the Right Chemistry
The type of material used and its chemical composition play a pivotal role in the functionality of your floor. Different materials such as epoxy, MMA, urethane cement, silikal, and polyaspartic each offer distinct advantages and disadvantages in terms of chemical resistance. For instance, epoxy functions differently than MMA, and a urethane cement floor’s chemical resistance properties will vary from those of a silikal or polyaspartic floor. It’s crucial to understand how these materials perform to make an informed choice.
Appearance and Slip Resistance
The visual appeal and slip resistance of your floor also depend on the type of flooring system you choose. Polished concrete offers a vastly different aesthetic and slip resistance compared to resinous and fluid-applied systems. Moreover, the type of broadcast aggregate and its quantity significantly impact slip resistance in fluid-applied resinous floors. A neat coat of epoxy or urethane will differ in slip resistance from traditional broadcast floors, while flake systems function differently from quartz systems, each offering unique visual appeal.
Customization for Your Needs
When customizing a floor system, it’s crucial to understand the specific requirements of your facility. The choice between epoxy broadcast systems and epoxy metallic systems, for example, will depend on your facility’s needs, traffic, and aesthetic preferences. Every element of your floor, from the materials to the application method and finish, must align with your unique needs.
