From loading docks and warehouses to automotive workshops and hangars, impacts are a common source of floor failure within an industrial environment.
Floor failure can occur when the resinous flooring system is chipped down the bond layer, where the coating meets the concrete. These chips in the flooring system allow contaminants to infiltrate the bond layer and undermine the integrity of the flooring system causing delamination and failure.
Epoxy and polyurethane resin flooring systems are available in a variety of different thickness specifications and it is this thickness which provides impact resistance. The thicker the resin floor coating, the more impact resistant the system.
It is important to look at your facilities requirements during the specification phase to ensure that the correct flooring system is chosen.
