Extremely hygienic, durable and attractive, seamless floors are preferred for many industries. Resinous floors are applied to a substrate, typically concrete. Some systems require a primer to help bond the layers, next a body coat is installed for thickness and strength, followed by a broadcast or grout coat which gives you textures and aesthetics, and lastly a performance topcoat is applied to protect against chemical attack, cleaning and normal wear and tear.
A common question for people new to the world of epoxy floor coatings and resinous flooring is: How thick are these coating systems? There’s no one simple answer, because the truth is that there is a wide range of acceptable thicknesses, and proper selection of an epoxy floor coating system takes a number of critical factors, including how thick the floor should be, into consideration.
The thinnest epoxy floor coating systems are only approximately 0.
011 to 0.025 inches (11-25 mils) thick, essentially consisting of consist of a primer, optional midcoat, and a topcoat. Depending upon the type of topcoat, these thinner coating systems can range greatly in their performance. The simplest of these can provide basic protection in light traffic environments, effectively reduce concrete “dusting”, furnish optional slip-resistance and create an attractive surface that is easy to clean.
