As a porous material, concrete can absorb all kinds of chemicals that can impact on your floor’s strength and appearance. Acid, solvents, oils and other chemicals can all take their toll on your surfaces. Many industries, from food production to workshops, need to store chemical substances that are used in both cleaning and other situations.
Your concrete floors are particularly vulnerable at chemical storage points including chemical bunds, or in areas that are washed down with harsh chemicals. Installing protective surfaces in industries where chemicals are used and stored can help your floors stay in great condition for longer.
The appropriate flooring protection will be determined by what sort of chemical is being stored, how often chemicals are moved, and the types of storage containers in use. Panther Protective Coatings has decades of experience and can design the perfect protection for the areas of your workplace that are used to store chemicals.
Our flooring is suitable for a range of different industries that require chemical storage including:
- Chemical Plants
- Food Production
- Store rooms
- Wineries, breweries and distilleries
- Health and aged care
Floor Coatings for Chemical Protection
Depending on the type of chemicals used, we may recommend a variety of chemical resistant concrete coatings such as Epoxy Novalac, a complete protection system for aggressive chemical spillages and acid proofing. Polyurethane systems or cement polyesters may be recommended for other situations. We can also assist with concrete repair, fibreglass patching and other remediation. This ensures your surfaces are in the best possible condition before coating, to ensure a long-lasting result.
