BACKGROUND: Non-slip flooring is a must in certain industrial settings. When the conditions are right, non-slip epoxy flooring can be the difference between injured employees, and an efficient work area. Non-slip flooring cuts down on slip and falls and other traction related issues to keep productivity stoppages and litigation at bay. This industrial facility teamed up with Xtreme Engineered Floor Systems as their industrial flooring contractor because of our vast knowledge and experience with industrial flooring applications.
NON-SLIP EPOXY APPLICATION: The most important step of any epoxy (or other resinous flooring application) is surface preparation of the concrete substrate. Xtreme used our fleet of equipment to diamond grind, and shot blast this floor for maximum penetration and adhesion of the epoxy coating. During the installation process, our experienced crews broadcast a dust-free (airborne silica free) quartz like material into the epoxy basecoat. The material that is broadcast provides not only a non-slip flooring finish, but also a uniform appearance. A pigmented V-8 epoxy topcoat was installed to give a uniform monolithic seamless finish. The epoxy topcoat is applied at a thickness that allows the floor to still have a fantastic texture and slip coefficient. The non-slip flooring installed by Xtreme in this industrial facility is chemical resistant, extremely durable, and easy to clean.
