What do your floors endure on a regular basis? The answer, of course, will depend on your industry and your business’ specific operations. No matter what, though, most commercial floors must withstand lots of stress from weight, movement, temperature changes, chemical spills, and more. Even the most durable floors built for these purposes will deteriorate over time, resulting in safety hazards and costly repairs.
Floor sealing is an important step in increasing the longevity of your commercial floors. But not all floor sealing options are created equal. Epoxy floor paint remains one of the most common materials for sealing concrete floors, but you have many more options at your disposal. Plus, new technologies and products for commercial floors emerge every day, allowing businesses like yours to better protect their facilities. Let’s review some of these new floor sealing technologies and trends that you should know about.
Keeping Sustainability in Mind
The word “sustainable” can mean many things, but in this case, it refers to materials that are more environmentally-friendly than their predecessors. Many manufacturers are turning their focus to sustainable materials as both a PR strategy and as a way to optimize their bottom line. Likewise, companies across industries are looking to “go green,” and sustainable floor sealing options can contribute to achieving this goal.
For instance, some flooring companies are beginning to use recycled materials in their commercial epoxy floor paint formula or other floor sealing solution. This is often reused glass material that can increase a floor’s durability and aesthetic appeal.
The Prominence of Polyurea
Epoxy concrete floor paint is popular for a reason, but it’s not the only material or method for securing your commercial floors. Polyurea flooring is incredibly durable, flexible, and versatile. Indeed, at Anderson Painting, our contractors are trained to install Penntek Polyurea flooring. This process involves installing many layers of various materials, including a vinyl chip or quartz system and two topcoats if desired.
Polyurea flooring can be tricky to install, and you have a small window of time to get it right once you start. For the best results, it’s important to hire a contractor well-versed in installing these floors. A properly installed, well-maintained polyurea floor can last you several decades, and Penntek offers its commercial clients a lifetime warranty for its chip system as well.
Some people might not care much about how their factory floors look. However, new floor sealing technology allows you to liven up your commercial space by customizing the look of your floors. Both epoxy and polyurea solutions give you lots of options for color, texture, and sheen. Industry doesn’t have to be boring or drab. Industrial businesses who want to uplift their employees and impress their guests should consider these aesthetic options when choosing their commercial floor paint or solution.
