About Floor Coatings
Concrete floors represent a significant investment for any industry. Despite this, it is often the most neglected and abused part of the structure. Apart from the mechanical abuse, spillages of various kinds of chemicals also occur often weakening the reinforcement and concrete surface. The need to protect the surface with a suitable coating is quite obviously there.
An increasing awareness of the limitations/drawbacks of concrete flooring is now resulting in wider acceptance of floor coatings. Limitations include the accumulation of dust due to the formation of laitance and difficulty encountered during cleaning owing to surface texture. Furthermore, the presence of cracks and surface porosity allows various oils to seep in, resulting in unappealing patches. Weakening of the reinforcement and concrete surface due to chemical spillage and the possibilities of microbial growth are other significant drawbacks.
Apart from these, concrete floors are aesthetically unappealing making the workplace dull.
The APCOFLOR coatings are hard wearing, abrasion resistant coatings available in wide range of attractive colours. They have excellent mechanical properties and provide floors that are tough and long lasting. They, apart from protecting the concrete surface, help tide over the limitations without affecting the intrinsic strength of concrete floor.
