First: concrete is porous, which means that it can harbor dirt and other contaminants; this is a strong reason why an industrial floor coating is needed. Also, concrete is strong but it can still be easily damaged from spilled chemicals as well as steady foot and vehicle traffic. Versatile Building Products systems like Roll on Rock® or 4800 Industrial Grade 100% Solids Epoxy will definitely protect the floor, as these concrete coatings stop all the aforementioned damages. Interestingly enough when Roll on Rock® or CQ Floor are used as an industrial concrete floor coating the results can have a big impact on the brightness of the area. Gone are the drab days of grey concrete! You may find that having a bright multi-colored floor coating in the industrial area will improve employee moral which may also improve productivity. Another benefit is that the floors will not need to be maintained as often since they hide plenty of dirt due to the multi colored finish. Most stains will wipe up due to the strength of the clear chemical resistant topcoats used like our Polyurea 5073, chemical resistant urethane 5325 or fast drying Polyaspartic 5108. You can also inlay your company logo into the industrial concrete floor coating if you really want to make a statement!
VBP has created a special line of epoxies that wick deep into the concrete floor surface which are ideal for priming old deteriorated industrial concrete floors. 4100 and 4150 Vapor Blocking Epoxy bond so well to the concrete floor that it will actually block out high levels of moisture vapor emissions which will help prevent non breathable concrete floor coatings like standard epoxy from failing. Most epoxy, urethane, or Polyaspartic floor coatings will fail at 3 lbs of MVE. Now you can get up to 16 lbs of MVE failure protection when using 4100 or 4150 vapor Blocking Epoxy Concrete Floor Primer before having the industrial floor coating installed.
VBP offers high build industrial concrete flooring like ICC 30 and ICC 100. These higher build systems have the strength and build of an epoxy mortar system. These heavy duty industrial concrete floor coatings provide builds up to 100 mils and offer a seamless finish that includes chemical and abrasion resistant protection that can only be offered by an epoxy or chemical resistant flooring topcoat.
If you are looking for more economical pigmented thinner build systems, then consider our 5010 high solids Waterbased Concrete Floor Epoxy for a simple 2 coat installation that will give you the look and feel of a 100% solids epoxy. If you want more abrasion resistance then try two coats of our ultra low VOC 5410 Chemical Resistant Urethane over yourindustrial concrete floor. Finally, if you are looking for speed than our 5010 Polyaspartic is the way to go since you can walk on it a few hours after it is installed.
The industrial concrete floor coatings offered by Versatile Building Products are installed across the USA and can be found on concrete floors in: automotive repair centers, stadiums, pharmaceutical development, health care facilities, kitchens, warehouses, beverage processing plants, food processing as well as bakeries to name but a few.General Care & Maintenance
