Popular concrete floor coating options
The most popular concrete floor coating options in industrial and commercial situations are epoxy resin and other resin mixes. These systems provide durable, seamless protection for surfaces, even under heavy use. Concrete sealing is a lighter weight option for economically protecting your concrete floors. Surface preparation must be undertaken before concrete floor coating to remove contaminates such as glue, moisture or grease that can affect your new surface. Then you can choose from a variety of epoxy-based concrete floor coating options according to the results you need.
