Industrial floor coatings

Epoxy Industrial Kansas City Leaders

Our Kansas City industrial coatings are 100% solid epoxy in color, with a urethane coating that will match the existing base color. This will be finished with a clear urethane final coat.

Epoxy floor coatings are commonly used for commercial and industrial flooring in the Kansas city area. Epoxy coatings are normally applied over concrete floors to provide a high-performance, smooth, and durable surface that can last many years and withstand heavy loads. Many industrial sites, warehouses, and commercial buildings rely on epoxy floors to maintain clean and safe conditions for workers, equipment, and inventory.

Epoxy Floor Coating Preparation

An epoxy coating requires a clean and slightly porous surface to adhere properly. With one million feet applied in the Kansas City area, we understand Epoxy may not bond to sealed or polished concrete. The concrete also must be fully cured. Before the application of any epoxy floor coatings, it is important to patch and repair all major cracks and chips in the concrete surface and to remove all grease. 

Epoxy Primer Formulas

Depending on the product being applied, you might need to apply an epoxy primer and finisher coat. The primer is applied just like paint and is allowed to settle for several hours before the epoxy goes on. To apply the primer, cover the floor with a thin layer of water, then spread the primer with a roller pin on a pole, spreading it out in a thin layer over the entire floor. Let the primer dry, then apply a second coat. The finisher is applied in the same manner as the primer but without the water layer.

Epoxy Floor Coating Advantages

Epoxy floor coatings offer many advantages when compared to other traditional coatings applied over concrete:

  • Creates a shiny high-gloss surface that can significantly increase the brightness of interior areas
  • Offers a hard-wearing durable surface able to withstand heavy and continuous traffic
  • Quick and easy to install, requiring no layout, cutting, additional adhesives, or special tools or equipment
  • Durable and easy to clean
  • Ideal for warehouses and industrial applications
  • Resists oil stains and water
  • Creates a seamless surface that can last many years
  • Can be combined with paints and colors to mask off chips and cracks
  • Provides a chemically resistant surface ideal for manufacturing plants
  • Offers enhanced safety when surface contains anti-slip additives
  • Can be applied in different patterns to create visible driveways and/or identify walkable areas
  • Prevents wear and tear on existing concrete floors
  • May be compatible with self-leveling products that can be applied over new or old concrete, depending on product
