Since concrete is one of the most durable manufactured building materials we have, it is used around the world. But concrete is not immune to damage. Impacts, abrasion, harsh chemicals, and thermal shock can all take a toll on concrete. And it is a given that a neglected concrete floor is likely to be covered in dust. There is not a single issue that causes the floor dust, but rather several reasons that cause it.
Concrete Floors Damaged by Forklifts
Besides the dust, neglected industrial concrete floors are often covered with abrasions, holes, and peeling stripes. Speaking of abrasions, have you ever noticed the damage that a forklift can do to a concrete floor? Sharply turning forklifts and forklifts sliding pallets across the floor can really abrade it.
Blackwell’s, Inc. Repairs Concrete Floor Damage
Blackwell’s, Inc. can repair these damaged concrete floors. That is what we have been doing for over 30 years. After we have repaired these damaged floors, why not let us protect the floors with a coating? For floors exposed to water, harsh chemicals, or abrasions, or even a combination of all three, a floor coating of epoxy with a topcoat of urethane, or even vinyl ester, would be a viable choice. And the epoxy coated floor can give your facility and brand-new look.
Now if you have decided to repair the damaged concrete flooring at your industrial facility and have decided to change that old dusty gray concrete floor to a new epoxy coated floor, what color do you want?
Epoxy Coatings Come in Many Colors
Coated flooring can be about any color but here are thoughts to keep in mind. Gray coatings are still the most popular. Light colored floors show up dark spills and dark debris on the floor. On the other hand, if you lose something, it might be easier to find on a light-colored floor! Dark colored floors show up light colored spills and debris easier, but it might hide those darker spills and debris, too.
As far as color of the epoxy floor, it is all up to you!
