Maintenance Area Floor Coating

Maintenance / Machine Shop Flooring

Prime Polymers Inc. offers a single source, turn-key solution for all your maintenance or machine shop flooring needs.

Prime Polymers has vast experience and superior technical expertise in delivering industrial flooring solutions for maintenance areas and machine shops. The daily abuse and demands placed on a machine shop, or any industrial floor for that matter, requires a flooring system that will deliver years of durability and safety.  Prime Polymers’ flooring systems are uniquely developed, and have the compressive strength to withstand heavy equipment, abrasive material, corrosive agents and so much more.

Prime Polymers’ machine shop floor coating systems deliver exceptional results for (but not limited to): 

Metal Fabrication Facilities

Metal fabrication facilities, with their heavy machinery and potential for chemical spills, greatly benefit from our epoxy floor coating. Unlike an uncoated concrete floor, epoxy floors provide a seamless and chemical-resistant surface that can withstand the rigors of metalworking processes. The coating helps minimize dirt accumulation and facilitates mechanized cleaning equipment, ensuring a safe and efficient workspace.

Automotive Repair Shops

In automotive repair shops, where exposure to harsh chemicals and heavy machinery is common, epoxy floor coatings offer an ideal solution. These coatings have chemical resistance properties, protecting the flooring against spills and stains. Unlike uncoated concrete floors, epoxy floors minimize dirt accumulation and provide a smooth surface that facilitates the movement of machinery and vehicles.

Equipment Manufacturing

A coated floor is necessary for equipment manufacturing facilities that need to withstand large machinery and harsh chemicals. Epoxy floor coatings provide a durable and chemical-resistant surface that protects against damage from chemical spills and abrasion. Concrete floors need a barrier to protect the floors so you wont need caustic cleaning solutions. Epoxy floors minimize dirt accumulation and simplify cleaning.

Industrial Training Facilities

Epoxy floor coatings are particularly beneficial in industrial training facilities, where safety and durability are paramount. Epoxy floors offer a seamless and slip-resistant surface that enhances safety during training activities. The coatings protect against liquid spills and minimize scratching.

Component Parts Manufacturing

Parts manufacturing facilities require flooring investments that can withstand big machinery and chemical spills. Epoxy floor coatings offer a durable surface that protects against damage from harsh liquids and abrasion. The proper protection created by epoxy flooring keeps the parts manufacturing running smoothly.

Technical School Machine Shops

In technical school machine shops, where students learn machining and fabrication techniques, epoxy floor coatings provide a safe and practical surface. They offer a slip-resistant surface that reduces the risk of accidents during practical exercises. The coatings also make it easy to clean when a spill occurs.

Heavy Duty Production Operations

Industrial processes are rigorous in heavy-duty production operations. This demands a new flooring investment that can withstand abrasive dust and harsh spills. Epoxy floor coatings offer a durable and chemical-resistant surface that protects against damage from heavy machinery and chemical spills.

Prime Polymers’ epoxy floor coatings provide a range of benefits for industries such as metal fabrication, automotive repair, equipment manufacturing, and industrial training. Their durability, chemical resistance, and ease of maintenance, make them a valuable investment for environments where safety, efficiency, and longevity are essential.

Prime Polymers’ industrial flooring systems deliver a multitude of benefits including:

Slip Resistance

Epoxy flooring is renowned for its excellent slip resistance, making it ideal for industrial settings where safety is so important. The textured surface provides enhanced traction, reducing the risk of slips and falls, even in environments prone to spills or moisture accumulation. This slip resistance helps maintain a safe working environment for employees and minimizes the potential for workplace accidents.

Abrasion Resistance

Industrial floors are subjected to constant foot traffic, heavy machinery, and abrasive materials, leading to wear and tear over time. Epoxy flooring offers exceptional abrasion resistance, thanks to its durable and resilient surface. The epoxy coating forms a protective barrier that shields the underlying substrate from scratches, scuffs, and abrasion, ensuring the longevity of the floor even in high-traffic areas.

Impact Resistance

Heavy machinery and equipment in industrial facilities can inadvertently cause damage to flooring surfaces through impacts and heavy loads. It is essential to have flooring that provides superior impact resistance, absorbing the force of impacts and preventing damage to the underlying substrate. Using epoxy ensures the durability of the floor, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements and minimizing downtime.

Chemical Resistance

Exposure to harsh chemicals and corrosive substances that can damage conventional flooring materials is commonplace in industrial facilities. Epoxy flooring is highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, solvents, oils, and alkalis. The impermeable nature of epoxy coatings prevents chemical penetration.

Moisture Resistance

Moisture infiltration can compromise the structural integrity of concrete floors, leading to issues such as mold growth, substrate deterioration, and safety hazards. Epoxy flooring offers excellent moisture resistance, forming a seamless and waterproof barrier that prevents water penetration. This moisture resistance makes epoxy coatings ideal for environments prone to spills, humidity, or frequent cleaning, ensuring a dry and safe working environment.

Temperature Resistance

Industrial processes often involve exposure to extreme temperatures, which can affect the performance of flooring materials. Epoxy flooring exhibits excellent temperature resistance, remaining stable and durable even in environments with fluctuating temperatures. Whether subjected to high heat or freezing conditions, epoxy coatings maintain their structural integrity.

Thermal Shock Resistance

In industrial environments, where rapid temperature changes occur, flooring materials must withstand thermal shock without cracking or delaminating. Many industries benefit from epoxy flooring with exceptional thermal shock resistance, thanks to its seamless and flexible nature. The coating can expand and contract with changes in temperature, minimizing the risk of thermal stress-related damage.

Corrosion Resistance

Conventional flooring is often damaged by corrosive substances and chemical exposure. With superior corrosion resistance, epoxy floors protect the underlying substrate from damage caused by acids, salts, and other corrosive agents. This corrosion resistance greatly reduces maintenance costs.

Low Odor

During installation, some flooring materials emit strong odors that can be disruptive to industrial operations and unpleasant for workers. Epoxy flooring is available in low odor formulations, minimizing the impact on indoor air quality and creating a more comfortable working environment. The low odor properties of epoxy coatings make them suitable for use in occupied industrial spaces where odor sensitivity is a concern.

Easy to Maintain

Maintaining cleanliness and hygiene in industrial facilities is important for product quality, regulatory compliance, and worker safety. Epoxy flooring is easy to maintain, requiring minimal upkeep to preserve its appearance and performance. The smooth and seamless surface of epoxy coatings can be easily cleaned with routine mopping, scrubbing, or pressure washing.

Prime Polymers’ epoxy flooring offers a multitude of benefits for industrial floors! The attributes listed above make epoxy coatings an ideal choice for industrial environments, providing durability, safety, and longevity for industrial flooring solutions.
