COMBAT COMMON ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURES WITH THESE FLOORING SYSTEM PROPERTIES
- Impact and Abrasion Resistance
Floors at manufacturing facilities often experience wear and tear from heavy equipment and industrial appliances, requiring durable flooring systems to reduce cracking, chipping and other safety hazards.
- Thermal Shock Resistance
Does your facility experience dramatic swings between hot and cold? Your floor is exposed to these extreme conditions and the right system can prevent costly repairs.
- Chemical Resistance
Harsh chemicals and acids can quickly corrode an uncoated floor, making it difficult to clean and sanitize while creating working hazards. The right system can withstand chemical exposures and meet governmental and military requirements.
- Resistance to Microbe Contamination
Wet floors are a playground for mold, mildew and other microbes that can contaminate the plant’s product. Certain flooring systems are formulated to beat back microbes and ensure the facility is easy to clean.
- Static Control
At many manufacturing facilities, electrical charges can build and pose a serious risk to people and equipment. Static control coatings be static dissipative or conductive, offering a range of electric resistance, ensuring operations remain smooth and safe.

DRILLING DOWN: FREQUENT QUESTIONS AND CHALLENGES EXPERIENCED BY MANUFACTURING FACILITY MANAGERS
Does your facility handle corrosive chemicals on a day-to-day basis? If so, you’ve probably witnessed how much damage these chemicals can wreak on a building’s infrastructure. Not only can corrosive chemicals, from acids and bases to strong solvents, eat through a conventional floor coating, they can also seriously damage the concrete substrate. Left unchecked, corrosion…
As an industrial facility manager tasked with choosing a fresh flooring system, there are several aspects to consider, as every facility has different goals and requirements. But whatever your facility’s needs are, chances are you’ll eventually weigh the pros and cons of urethane and epoxy flooring coatings. These resin-based systems look identical to an untrained…
With social distancing measures in place, the business world has been upended. Many manufacturing plants producing essential needs have ramped up production, yet other facilities have slowed or completely stopped for the time being. These closures, while sorely inconvenient, do present a rare opportunity for facility upgrades. Much-needed upgrades are often prolonged past their dues…
Sanitation needs are as unique as business operations. A restaurant or hotel will have far different demands than a warehouse or automotive shop. Yet no matter the operation, flooring plays a critical role in the cleanliness and sanitation of that space. Think of your flooring system as both the frontline and last resort – any…
