Renovating Concrete Floors with Polymer Flooring Systems

There aren’t very many flooring options for an industrial facility. Think about what the floors in any typical plant or manufacturing facility would have to endure: forklift traffic, trucks driving on it, heavy equipment getting dropped on it, corrosive chemicals from the manufacturing process as well as cleaning. Renovating concrete with polymer flooring helps solve these problems.

Even a hand tool getting dropped on a plain concrete floor can lead to a chip, while any big piece of tooling or dye will definitely leave a dent or crack. When this happens, over time that crack or chip will get worse. It will harbor dirt and bacteria that will be impossible to fully clean. As water or other chemicals get into that crack, it will expand. Whatever coating might be on the concrete could then start to flake off and chip away at your floor.

How can you prevent this from happening? The first key step is a good coating. Concrete by itself is not as durable as it seems. Polymer flooring on top of concrete revitalizes the concrete, giving it the protection and durability your existing concrete floor doesn’t have on its own.

Renovating concrete with polymer flooring means that your existing concrete floor is coated with a one-piece, multiple layers, seamless, non-porous and highly durable coating. Sanitation is a key piece of this flooring. Whether you are a winery or a cheese maker whatever spills on your floor will affect your facility’s hygiene. If you can’t fully clean your floors, your product will be compromised, no matter what.

If you remove the places for dirt and bacteria to hide, you’ve solved that problem. The polymer flooring is applied in a multiple layer with no seams or joints. That means no cracks. It can even continue up a wall for even more coverage. Simply spray off and wipe down to have cleanliness you know is really clean.
