The Thickest and Strongest Epoxy Flooring Solution
If you’re in need of a floor system that can handle heavy forklift traffic and high tonnage vehicles like dump trucks, buses, semis, and large jets, look no further than our heavy-duty industrial epoxy flooring. With a whopping thickness of 30 mils, this extra durable epoxy system is perfect for repair shops and body shops where heavy equipment and tools are constantly used and dropped. It can even withstand daily caustic wash downs and high repetitive traffic found in most production facilities. Plus, it’s a turnkey package that can be easily applied by your in-house staff, even if they have no prior experience.
The Complete Package
Our heavy-duty industrial epoxy flooring comes with everything you need for a successful installation. It includes a high-performance primer for added durability, our super-duty floor epoxy, mixing wands, rollers, mixing buckets, and an 18″ calibrated application squeegee. With this comprehensive package, you can rest assured that you’re getting a top-notch flooring solution.
Unmatched Durability and Resistance
If you’ve had issues with premature failure of your previous epoxy coatings, or if you simply want to avoid any future problems, our heavy-duty epoxy flooring is the answer you’ve been searching for. With an abrasion loss rating of only 3 mgs (the lower the number, the better), there’s simply nothing that can withstand wear and impacts better than our epoxy. Don’t be fooled by epoxies with higher abrasion loss ratings, as they can’t compare to the performance of our flooring system.
Our floor epoxy can handle loads of up to 100 tons when fully cured, making it super hard with a Shore-D 90 hardness rating. To put that in perspective, hard hats are typically rated between 75-85. Additionally, our epoxy has a compressive strength of 13,600 psi, making it many times stronger than the concrete it’s applied on. With excellent high impact resistance, you can even drive forklifts over this floor without any adverse effects. It’s no wonder we call it the toughest epoxy on earth, making it perfect for auto body shops, kennels, aircraft facilities, paper mills, processing plants, manufacturing plants, heavy maintenance shops, and many other applications.
Easy Steps for Installation
If you’re interested in installing this type of floor, we’ve broken it down into three simple steps. While it does require 1-2 days of installation and a couple more days for the final epoxy coating to fully harden, it’s well worth the effort. Our epoxy flooring system is designed to provide heavy-duty service for 10-15 years.
Step 1: Proper Floor Prepping
To ensure a successful installation, proper floor prepping is crucial. The preferred method is a diamond grind to clean the floor. For oil and grease stains, scrub in some Liquid Tide with Muriatic acid, let the acid work for 5-6 minutes, then rinse it off. Repeat this process as necessary, and on the final rinse, use TSP powder to neutralize. If there are any cracks or spalled concrete, use one of our repair kits after cleaning. For heavily oil stained floors that cannot be cleaned, select the oil primer option. Visit our page on how to prep and epoxy paint your floor for more detailed preparation instructions.
Step 2: Primer Application
Next, apply the high-performance epoxy primer coat or the oil primer if oil cannot be completely removed from the floor.
Step 3: Epoxy Application
Once the primer is dry to the touch (around 5-6 hours), it’s time to apply the epoxy at a rate of 125 square feet per gallon. We recommend spreading the floor epoxy with our calibrated notched squeegee, then back rolling over it to smooth it out. It’s important not to mix more than 1 gallon per person rolling, as this high catalytic reaction epoxy sets up faster with more mixing. Avoid mixing on high speed to prevent air from being infused into the epoxy. After mixing parts A & B together, transfer the epoxy from the mixing bucket to smaller pails and give it a quick remix. Then, pour the epoxy directly on the floor in a bead from left to right, squeegee, and back roll. Be sure not to leave mixed epoxy in the bucket. For a nonslip finish, purchase our heavy-duty nonslip product and evenly broadcast it onto the epoxy after squeegeeing, but before back rolling. This is where spike soles come in handy. Once the floor epoxy is dry to the touch (around 8-12 hours), you can walk on it and put light traffic on it. However, for full hardness and to accommodate heavy vehicles, allow the floor to cure for 2 days.
