The lifespan of an industrial coating system can range from 2-20 years, depending on several factors such as the level of traffic, the nature of industrial activities, and the quality of the installation. Properly installed and maintained coatings in less aggressive environments can last on the higher end of this range, while floors in high-impact areas may require more frequent repair and refurbishment.

What Is The Life Expectancy of Our Flooring Systems?

How Long Does It Take To Install a Coating System in an Industrial Environment?

Installation of your coating system depend on a variety of factors:

Square Footage of the Area: The size of the space to be coated directly affects the time needed. Larger areas require more materials and manpower, thus extending the installation process.

Environmental Conditions: Temperature and humidity play crucial roles in curing times and the application process of floor coatings. Adverse conditions can delay drying and curing, thereby increasing the overall project time.

Access to the Site: Ease of access for workers and equipment can speed up or slow down the project. Limited access can hinder the transportation of materials and equipment, leading to delays.

Type of Coating System: Different systems such as epoxy, polyurethane, or acrylic have varying preparation needs and curing times. For instance, systems like MMA cure rapidly, while others might need more time to set.

Condition of the Existing Floor: The current state of the concrete floor impacts the prep work required. Floors needing extensive repair or leveling will add time to the project schedule.

Preparation Requirements: The amount of grinding, cleaning, and priming needed before application affects the timeline. More intensive surface prep extends the project duration.

Curing Time for Coatings: Each type of coating has its own curing time which can influence the project schedule. Faster-curing options can help shorten the installation process.

Number of Coating Layers: More layers generally mean more work and longer drying times between applications, which extends the installation period.

Work Shifts Available: The number of shifts workers can operate (single, double, or continuous) will affect how quickly the job can be completed. Continuous shifts can significantly speed up completion.

Ventilation and Air Quality Control: Adequate ventilation is essential for safe and effective curing of coatings, especially in enclosed spaces. Poor ventilation can slow down the drying process and delay the project.

How Do You Prepare Concrete Floors for Industrial Coatings?

Preparing a concrete floor for a coating system is an important step that determines the longevity and effectiveness of the coating. The process begins with an in-depth assessment of the concrete's current condition. This evaluation involves checking for any existing coatings that need to be removed, identifying cracks, chips, and any other forms of damage, as well as detecting contaminants that could impair the adhesion of the primer coating.

Once the initial assessment is complete, the next step involves moisture testing to ensure the concrete is adequately dry for the coating application. Excess moisture in concrete can lead to significant problems, if not planned for. The concrete is then profiled using planetary diamond grinders, edging tools or shot blasting to create the proper concrete surface profile.

If repairs are necessary, they are addressed before proceeding with the coating. Concrete repair and restoration might include techniques like structural repairs, injections, self-leveling underlayments, waterproofing, crack and spall repairs, and more.
