Concrete floor coatings such as Chemical resistant coatings are designed for concrete walls, floors, and secondary containment areas to reduce abrasion from materials and chemicals. It ensures that substrate stays durable and last longer than expected. Chemical resistant coatings helps in eliminating repairing costs for your flooring, and protects it against harmful oil, acid, solvent and chemical spills.

A pitted uneven surface can be dangerous to walk on, unstable for forklift use, can be slippery and can also run the risk of breaking apart under strain.
A well protected chemical contentment area or storage area should provide an easy to clean/ neutralize, non-slip and should include falls to wastes or sumps if appropriate.
Acids and chemical will damage concrete and steel if left unprotected, quite often the damage down from harsh chemicals over time unrepairable and the concrete will need to be removed and replaced. The right chemical resistant product will seal and protect the concrete or steel from liquids and chemical attack.
