Forklift Charging Epoxy Flooring

An Overview From the Commercial Flooring Contractor

This project was located in Edison, NJ. It was a very large fulfillment center that needed a chemical-resistant epoxy floor installed for their new fleet of forklifts. They were a high-volume facility requiring off-hour epoxy flooring installation.

Details on the Epoxy Resin Corrosion Resistance Floor


As previously mentioned, this was a project in New Jersey that involved a 3,000 square foot space, for the exclusive use of a forklift battery charging station. To achieve fitness of purpose we needed to find a commercial epoxy resin flooring that would resist the extremely corrosive sulphuric acid that is contained in a forklift battery. Often, epoxy flooring contractors assume chemical resistance is a generic term, but in reality, chemical exposures run the entire array of PH levels. In other words, acetone-resistant epoxy would not be a good fit for this warehouse facility. The correct epoxy floor resin is to be used as a novolac resin, given its high resistance rating to sulphuric acid.

The Process Provided by the Commercial Epoxy Floor Contractor

As an experienced epoxy flooring contractor,  we offer some manufacturer's information beyond sharing our experiences with their warehouse epoxy flooring project. This allows our client a level of comfort, knowing High Performance System can provide a detailed explanation with supporting documentation, thus ensuring a level of comfort and confidence.

We started by mechanically abrading the substrate in preparation for our new chemical resistant 

epoxy flooring system. The substrate profile that was required to meet the manufacturer's specification required special tooling, as the existing concrete was polished and had an extremely hard surface. It is imperative that at a minimum meet the manufacturer's recommendations.

Once completed, we then applied two coats of a high-quality novolac epoxy coating, and finished it off with an aliphatic urethane line striping within the cure window, allowing the thermally cured resins to weld together, ultimately providing low maintenance safety lines for the client's workplace.
