Epoxy and Urethane flooring are ideal for the demands of auto body and mechanic shops In Miami

While you might associate concrete as the flooring of choice for auto shops, epoxy might just be the better option. Epoxy is a resinous coating that can be applied directly over your existing floor. It works with tile, stone, concrete, and other surfaces, and with proper care, it can last many years. Urethane is another coating that can be used in conjunction with epoxy. Blackrock Industrial recommends epoxy and urethane coatings for Miami’s many auto body and repair shops. Keep reading to learn why!

Epoxy and Urethane Protect Floors

If you work in a mechanic shop or auto body shop, you already know that your floor sees a lot of traffic. While vehicle traffic can take a heavy toll on surfaces, that’s not the only concern here. Mechanics and auto repair shops also expose flooring surfaces to numerous chemicals, from road salt and dirt to motor oil and corrosive substances. Epoxy can stand up to all of it with a smooth, seamless surface that won’t stain or erode over time. It won’t be damaged by dropped tools, constant traffic, or spilled auto fluids, either. With good care, your new epoxy or urethane flooring will look and function just like it did the day you installed it.

Polyurethane and Epoxy Are Safe and Effective in High-Traffic Spaces

Grease spills, fluid leaks, and general messiness are all common in auto shops. This can increase the risk of slips and spills and create a dangerous environment for your staff. Epoxy and urethane can counteract that by adding a protective coating and seal to your floor.

At Blackrock Industrial, we can incorporate additives to improve the natural slip resistance of epoxy, creating a safe, effective floor for both people and vehicles. We can also add striping, markers to delineate zones and workspaces, and other patterns or prints according to your needs to help keep equipment and work in order and keep your people safe.

Epoxy and Urethane Are Durable

Untreated concrete is porous and absorbs stains and substances, increasing the risk of discoloration, erosion, and cracking. The right coating will protect your concrete from moisture and stains and protect it against abrasion and impacts, two critical sources of floor-related problems in the auto industry. Epoxy coatings make floors easy to clean, too, while urethane protects the epoxy. With this combination, you can keep your space looking bright and attractively professional at all times and for many years.

The Bottom Line

Epoxy flooring and urethane coatings apply quickly and efficiently, minimizing your downtime and ensuring you can get back to work as soon as possible. With endless options for customization, including additives, colors, and patterns, epoxy makes it easy to create the space that works best for you while standing up to auto body shop demands. We can incorporate not only slip-resistant features but reflective pigments, antimicrobials, and more to ensure your space is safe and functional for your needs. Maintaining it is easy, and you need no special tools or products: Simply sweep or dust mop daily and wash with a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner periodically or as needed.
