When and Where to use General service epoxies vs. specialty coating systems
Expanding on our previous post on “How to select a flooring system for your facility,” we will now look at how to select a specific epoxy flooring system for your facility using the same three factors: the type of facility, the budget and the current condition.
But first, what exactly is an epoxy coating?
Epoxy flooring is the most efficient way to enhance and maintain your work environment, while still providing a durable flooring system that is abrasion/impact resistant. This epoxy is also known as polymers and is made up of different materials based on the epoxy’s function. (“Polymer” come from the Greek words for many + part.) The coating’s main purpose is to protect the concrete it covers but has many other functions like line-striping and static-resistance. Our Rez-Stone epoxy coatings transform even the worst floors into a clean and safe work environment.

Type of Facility:
From automotive companies to chemical manufacturers, epoxy floor systems can be tailored to fit almost any environment. First, you will need to determine how much traffic your floor will receive and what the area will be used for. For instance, in the automotive industry we normally install our general service epoxy flooring systems such as Rez-Stone 9220, 9334 and 9500. For off-aisles or light traffic areas, we recommend a coating system such as our Rez-Stone 9220 or 9334 systems. In aisle-ways or high traffic areas, the Rez-Stone 9500 ¼” thick trowel applied system offers great wear-ability, durability and impact resistance.
