Epoxy and Urethane flooring are ideal for the demands of auto body and mechanic shops In The Tri-State Area
Auto body and repair shops really put their floors through a lot. As vehicles constantly move in and out of the space, the friction and weight can scuff and erode the floor, and over time, grooves or cracks may appear. During harsh weather, your floors could be dealing with road salts and other harsh chemicals. Epoxy floor coatings by Blackrock Industrial can protect your floor and simplify your life. Here’s what you need to know about using epoxy and urethane flooring in your New York auto shop.
What Are Epoxy and Urethane Floor Coatings?
Epoxy is commonly used in the automotive industry. It has a glossy shine with unparalleled versatility that makes it both attractive and useful. It is made using several layers of resin blended with pigments and additives for a coating that is both functional and decorative. Urethane or polyurethane floor coatings are topcoats and sealers that protect the floor and provide seamless protection from moisture and heat damage.
Epoxy Coatings for Auto Body and Mechanic Shops
Epoxy is applied directly to the floor, and as it cures, it hardens into a strong, durable coating that shares a chemical bond with the underlying floor. It can restore or transform worn, pitted, and otherwise damaged concrete flooring and dramatically brighten a space. It’s often used in conjunction with concrete and can incorporate pigments, shimmer, and other additives for custom looks. Epoxy can resist staining, damage from thermal shock and impacts, and ordinary wear and tear. Widely used in the automotive industry, the aerospace industry, and automobile showrooms, epoxy flooring is easy to maintain and highly cost-effective in areas that receive heavy traffic but need to pack a powerful visual punch.
Urethane Coatings for Auto Body Shops and Mechanics
Urethane is installed over the top of existing flooring and works with most types of epoxy flooring as a protective seal. Like epoxy, urethane coatings are seamless as well as resistant to moisture and heat. They strengthen and help protect the floors underneath from damage and wear and tear. Urethane works in conjunction with epoxy coatings to protect them from damage and prevent wear and tear.
Both floor systems offer not just protection but also value. We can design epoxy coatings and urethane to brighten your space and enhance your business. They’ll act as protective shields against chemical spills, oil and fuel exposure, impacts from tools, heavy vehicle wear, and more. The easy maintenance means that you won’t waste time or energy on complex cleaning routines and money on expensive or specialty products. Finally, it’s cost-effective, with beauty and brilliance that lasts year after year.
