Preventing industrial flooring from chemical attacks

Chemical attacks can be very common, particularly in certain industries; therefore, preventing an attack can really save you money and disruption to your workplace in the long run.

Industrial Resin Flooring

Impact Flooring provide a range of choices to help your business protect your industrial flooring system, providing you with longevity. Due to working in the industrial industry your flooring may experience levels of wear and tear, from forklifts or trucks moving in and out to consistent footfall, but what about chemical attack?

Chemical attacks can cause long term damage to your flooring if your flooring continually comes in contact with corrosive and aggressive materials. If your flooring is not protected, then you risk your floor deteriorating, leading to safety and cost implications; it can become a trip hazard and machinery can start getting damaged if they travel over the damaged area of flooring.

Epoxy Coatings

We recommend utilising a resin flooring system as it is one of the best ways you can protect against chemical attack. Resin epoxy coatings offer an incredibly strong coating, which goes on top of the concrete. Epoxy coatings help to block against chemical attack, and can withstand the weight and repetitive transportation of heavy equipment and machinery. In short, epoxy coatings prevents chipping or cracking, as well as providing an aesthetically pleasing flooring solution due to the decorative choices it provides.

Polyurethanes

Polyurethanes are another solution to the prevention of chemical attack. Polyurethanes act as a further layer and are highly resistant to the corosive qualities of chemicals such as solvents, bleach and acids. Similar to an epoxy coating, they are easy to maintain and keep clean.

If you’re not sure which protective solution is right for your business, give us a call and we will be happy to advise you on what the best choice is for your industry.
