DURABILITY: Hard-wearing, able to withstand wear, pressure or damage.
ABRASION RESISTANCE: is the ability of a surface to stand up to wear and tear caused by movement of equipment, product, and people. Over a period of time; within the service life, all floors will experience wear, scuffing, scratching, and marring of the surface. Some surfaces hold up better against abrasion than others.
Benefits of having an epoxy or urethane abrasion resistant floor include:
- Avoid scuff and scratch marks that damage floors, making them less attractive, such as in commercial, Institutional, and public areas.
- Standing up to abrasion due to heavy equipment and forklift traffic in Industrial manufacturing, food & beverage, and warehousing.
- Save time and money on floor repairs or replacement due to a worn surface or unattractive look.
Flooring strength for Industrial flooring is defined as compression strength. The ability or overall capacity of a flooring material to withstand heavy loads and resist compression or pressure exerted on the flooring material from mechanical and physical pressure.
Benefits of High-Strength, Heavy-Duty Epoxy or Urethane Flooring
Compression strength is a critical part of decision-making for manufacturing environments where there is heavy equipment, moving equipment and wheeled traffic.
The highlighted benefit includes: standing up to the weight of heavy equipment and traffic.
INDUSTRIES: Industrial, Commercial, & Institutional environments requiring abrasion and wear-resistant flooring:
- Food & Beverage
