Though no two facilities or two pieces of concrete are the same, these basic specifications can be used and modified to meet almost any need. Each system is designed to accomplish a certain result.
Two-coat systems are designed to seal and protect new concrete from oil and other chemical penetration. This system dust-proofs the floor, hardens the concrete surface better than other surface hardeners, and provides a wear surface. The systems are usually pigmented to provide enhanced aesthetics and increased light reflectivity.
Three-coat systems are used to add additional mil for extended wear and fill in rougher concrete.
Coatings work well for both new and old concrete but are better suited for off-aisle areas and where the concrete has nominal oil saturation. If a concrete surface can be damaged, the same damage will occur to these systems.
