Epoxy Wall Coverings
In many industrial, institutional, and commercial settings, maintaining walls can be a costly and involved process. Chipping paint, water damage, chemical exposure, and general wear and tear make upkeep a hassle. Oftentimes, time spent on wall repairs leads to disruptions in workflow and can leave rooms unusable for periods at a time in commercial settings. While most people are aware that epoxy coatings are a great choice for creating durable, low-maintenance flooring, many do not know that epoxy works just as well on walls.
Our epoxy for walls coating systems are available in a number of different varieties and colors, so you’re sure to find a colour and texture to meet your specific needs. The benefits of epoxy are unmatched:
1. A wide variety of custom colors
2. Moisture-resistant surfaces against water, cleaners, disinfectants, and more
3. Incredible durability against abrasions and scratches
4. Easy-to-clean walls that can withstand even high-pressure hosing
Epoxy for Walls Create a Safe & Clean Environment
Epoxy for walls are quick and simple to apply, and in no time create strong, hygienic, and easy to maintain surfaces that leave your space looking great. Particularly in settings where chemical resistance and sanitation are important; epoxy for walls is a perfect choice. It can prevent harmful bacteria growth and resist moisture that leads to dangerous mold. This is important for food preparation and handling areas, correctional facilities, locker rooms, hospital operating rooms, veterinary clinics, and more.
Epoxy for walls works by eliminating seams and cracks that can collect water and cause unsightly and unsafe damage. Our epoxy for walls coatings work particularly well over concrete walls, which are prone to cracks and easily show flaws and imperfections.
Epoxy for Containment Areas
We have specialized coatings and systems for containment areas and sections of plants, factories, and facilities that need to have full protection from liquids, splash and spills.
Seamless Epoxy Flooring
Epoxy flooring is chemically engineered to offer a wide array of advantages, including being fluid-applied for a nearly seamless, monolithic surface. Some advantages of this include:
Hygiene. Self-adhesive tile or tile and grout floors are inherently comprised of a network of seams in the floor surface that can trap dirt, grime, spills, and microbes. Luxury vinyl plank or sheet flooring relies on heat-welded seams that are prone to cracking; the breached surface is one more place for bacteria to build up and grow. In contrast, fluid-applied flooring systems virtually eliminate these seams, making it easier to disinfect the space and maintain a more sanitary environment.
Durability. In heavy traffic, the edges of individual floor tiles can present weak spots prone to fracturing or crumbling. Seamless epoxy flooring systems avoid having weak spots that are prone to fracturing and crumbling, as is common in tile floors. Resinous finishes may be installed at different thicknesses and can incorporate strengthening elements, such as special powders, aggregates and other additives, that furnish superior resistance to abrasion or puncture damage and outstanding compressive strength for heavy loads.
More cost effective. Epoxy floors can be installed to yield similar visual and functional characteristics as granite, terrazzo, stained concrete, and other designer options for just a fraction of the cost. Additionally, resinous floor surface eliminate the need special upkeep, with no need to wax, buff, or regularly treat the flooring system once installed. Increased durability means less frequent replacement and repair costs, and at the end of its long usable life, the old resinous flooring system need not be removed. It can be simply recoated with another decorative epoxy system or serve as the substrate for the next choice in floor covering. This can great lower replacement time and disposal costs.
Better for the environment. In addition to reducing the waste associated with floor replacements, many epoxy floor coatings and similar resinous finishes can be made in part with recycled materials. They can also protect the environment surrounding the facility. Auto shops, industrial plants, and other facilities make use of dangerous chemicals and toxins that must be disposed of carefully. In the event of a spill, without the proper floor coating, the porous surface of the bare concrete slab would absorb the substance, allowing it to accumulate and eventually seep out into the surrounding soil and water. The same can happen with flooring systems possessing cracks or grout lines that provide an entry point for dangerous chemicals to enter into and leach through the slab. A properly selected and installed seamless epoxy floor minimizes this risk with its impermeable, nonporous surface that isolates toxins on the surface, allowing them to be properly cleaned up and disposed of.
Fast turnaround. As opposed to tiles that must be painstakingly laid, or other finishes that must be applied and sanded in layer after layer, epoxy flooring systems are installed as liquids in a fast, uncomplicated process. They set quickly and are able to accommodate full use again soon after installation, minimizing the downtime for a facility installing a new flooring system.
