One of the most common questions that an industrial flooring installation company will be asked is, “how long will my new flooring last?” Due to the extensive range of epoxy resin flooring and other floor systems that are available and designed for specific working environments, operations and facilities, it makes it rather difficult to provide a single answer to that question. The lifespan of resinous flooring can range from just two yeas to fifteen years, depending completely on the environment in which the floor will be used, the traffic in the area and the type of flooring system installed.
It is quite common for the needs and requirements of the building owner to be taken into consideration, as the quality of an industrial floor can be determined on the length of time the floor is required from a business. Shorter term protection can be accommodated into buildings that are being leased for only a short amount of time, or alternatively, a floor can be installed with the intention of lasting a decade or more. However, the reality is that the working environment will determine the floors outcome.
Protecting your floors surface is the key factor of industrial floor installation. The longevity of your floor is dependent on its continuous adhesion to the floor below. A strong bond with the floor and surface protection can be easily reduced by dust, moisture dirt or oils that have been left behind. An experienced installation company will have the skill and knowledge to prevent any unwanted substances being left behind that reduces your industrial floors’ lifespan. Here are some other key things to look out for:
- Fresh concrete must be sufficiently cured and moisture-free to ensure an efficient bond with the surface protection layer.
- Any curing compounds should be avoided as they can prevent the success of adhesion between the floor and the surface protection layer.
