Manufacturing Epoxy Floor Contractor

Epoxy Flooring for the Manufacturing Industry

Epoxy flooring for the manufacturing industry can come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. Knowing when and where to apply the most appropriate resinous system is a vital role your epoxy contractor should assist you with in order to achieve your goals, from a chemical resistance, texture, and wear ability standpoint.

Other considerations might be whether your new flooring system is for production, loading dock or maybe compactor area to name a few.

Often times, chemical resistance can vary within the same facility. For example, a manufacturing epoxy flooring system may have space for pallets or production, but what happens to the area where the forklifts are charging at the end of the day? That charging station should be a novolac resin, as its strength is in resisting  the acid that batteries use to operate and sometimes leak. Other considerations would include, hours of operation, level of traffic and whether it involves forklift, hand jacks or carts. All of those concerns help in determining the right epoxy flooring system for your concern.

Epoxy Flooring is for a Specific Purpose

The texture is always important from an employee safety standpoint, and of course safe transportation of palletized materials.  Your wash down areas may need a manufacturing epoxy resin flooring that will hold large aggregate to ensure workplace safety. Maybe another might include "air carpets" that transport products on an air cushion that rely heavily on very smooth flooring. The list is extensive, and loading docks near outside doors will require a more robust resinous floor to tolerate high and heavy traffic

Wearability is yet another factor that needs to be considered, and a manufacturing epoxy flooring system might include a two coat resinous flooring system to minimize dusting and ultimately contamination of your customer's purchased product. A loading dock typically would want to use a quarter inch mortar system to withstand heavy and constant traffic.

The Benefits of Epoxy Flooring

Manufacturing facility epoxy flooring has many benefits in terms of not only good housekeeping and optimization of the workspace usage, but it also can function as an aid to assist in organization, helping your staff understanding your process and become easy to train your staff.

For example, an experienced epoxy flooring company can provide insight as to standard procedures for applying line striping and or meeting OSHA requirements on color coordinating for fire extinguishers, gas lines, and various other marking needs.

The benefits to a properly installed warehouse epoxy flooring system are endless, not the least of which is creating better lighting and a more productive workplace.
