The Importance of Factory Floor Paint for Your Business

4/3/18

If you own a business that has a concrete floor, particularly a factory, facility, auto repair shop, warehouse or storage area, it is important that you protect the flooring using the right product. From floor coating to paints, there are several products that can extend the life of your concrete floor which makes good business sense. There are good reasons why you should consider factory floor paint as more than a purchase, but an investment into your business.

Advantages
There are strong benefits to using the proper floor paint to protect your concrete, which is the most popular material for the flooring of factories, maintenance facilities, and warehouses.
Durable: The right paint will last for years, even under heavy floor traffic. This means that new coats of paint will only need to be added every so often which helps keep maintenance costs down.
Resistance to Chipping: While arguably not as chip-resistant as floor coatings which tend to be far thicker, floor paints do help prevent some chipping and cracking from impacts. The paint covers the concrete and helps seal up small cracks and imperfections that might become more problematic if left unprotected. 

Easy Maintenance: Because the paint seals up the porous nature of the concrete, it means that spills and stains are easily removed by brushing or mopping to maintain a clean floor. The concrete becomes far easier to maintain which means that your janitorial staff can spend more time in other areas.

Appearance: While many might not consider the advantages of a good-looking factory floor, it does have an impact when it comes to selling your property. Maintaining a strong floor that still looks like new is a big selling point and demonstrates the care you have placed on the property.
Before you choose a factory floor paint for your facility, you should be aware of the potential dangers that traditional polyurethane products contain.

Safe Products
Most floor paints contain polyurethane which has many attributes, but it also contains Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs which can affect the health of those working inside. Most people used to believe that once the paint dried, the VOCs were safely locked inside. However, recent studies have shown that VOCs still leak into the atmosphere and can build up in an indoor environment.

The buildup of VOCs over time presents a danger, especially to those who suffer from respiratory issues like asthma, but it can have a negative effect on everyone’s health. Allergies and illnesses are possible with long-term exposure to VOCs even in small amounts. Therefore, you should consider alternative products with little to no polyurethane.

If you are looking for factory floor paint that is durable, strong, affordable, and safe, then you should consult the experts at Hybrid Coating Technologies. We offer several products, which have all the attributes of polyurethane while greatly reducing, if not eliminating all the toxic substances inside so that your facility is protected. We invite you to get a free, no obligation quote regarding our many green products offered to protect your factor, facility, or business.  Just click here.
