How Epoxy Is Revolutionising The Industrial World
Floors are usually the last thing we think about upgrading when it comes to our business, however they can make some of the biggest changes to the appearance of your business to a new or returning customer.
Are your floors looking worn and tired? Are you finding it hard to clean all the dirt and grime off the floor? At DJL Services we provide a variety of commercial pressure cleaning and sealing options to give your business a competitive edge and present your brand in a professional manner. One of these options that can easily put a fresh face on your business is epoxy flooring.
What is Epoxy Flooring?
Are you a Perth business that uses commercial kitchens, cool rooms, showrooms, warehouses or workshops? Then epoxy floor coatings might be the solution for you!
Epoxy is an industrial sealer that can be applied to concrete floors, creating a non-porous, industrial grade new surface. Depending on your business needs, the epoxy can be poured to different depths to ensure that you are getting the most out of the sealant.
Benefits to your Business
Epoxy flooring present a variety of benefits for your business, employees and customers:
Durability – Floors that have been coated in epoxy can be expected to last up to 10 years.
Protective – Epoxy, as an industrial sealer, protects the concrete base below from having dirt or liquid seeping into the pores and reducing its quality.
Appearance – By leaving the floor smooth and polished, your floor has never looked better. Epoxy is also available in a variety of colours to suit your personal style.
Resistance – Once applied to concrete floors, epoxy is highly resistant to just about everything that is found in a warehouse situation (such as oils and chemicals) as well as being water and heat resistant.
Safety - Epoxy reflects light off the floor creating more visibility inside your property.
Non-slip – Epoxy floor coatings are slip resistant and can also be finished with a textured coating that will further enhance the safety of the floor.
Lower vehicle maintenance – Commercial epoxy floor coatings are more forgiving for machinery meaning maintenance on your vehicles should reduce.
Easy to clean – Epoxy floors are highly resistant to oil, dust, bleach, petrol and a variety of other messy items. By not accumulating as much mess, the floors are easier to clean and keep looking professional.
Additional property value – Upgrading your outdoor area with a residential epoxy floor coating can increase the value of your property by making it look fresher and newer.
How is Epoxy Flooring Installed?
The installation of epoxy flooring is not always as simple and straightforward as it may seem. The concrete base needs to be free from solvents and all cracks must be sufficiently filled before any sealant can be poured. If this preparation is not done, the floor can become prone to peeling and scratching, and may not last for as long as a properly installed sealant would.
Once the concrete has been cleaned the sealer can then be applied to the surface, either with a roller or by spray to ensure that it is applied evenly and no puddles form. It is crucially important that a trusted industrial cleaner like Perth’s DJL Services oversees this process to make sure that it is completed properly and safely.
Once the sealant has been applied, it will take approximately 24-48 to dry enough to be walked on.
