Concrete flooring is subjected to plenty of abuse – skid marks, chemical corrosion, and thermal shock (among other forms of physical destruction). Most concrete systems lack the design and reinforcement to withstand a lot of the physical punishment that it goes through. Concrete is also a porous material, which means that dirt, dust and other contaminants will make their way inside and weaken it.
Concrete coatings, however, offer you the protection you need by stabilizing your floor and preventing any major structural damage. There is a fairly thorough process when it comes to evaluating your floor and considering the ways in which you can improve its long-term performance. You always want to think about your flooring system in terms of the application, the density of the epoxy coatings, and the aesthetics.
