High-Quality Epoxy Flooring Services
Urethane USA specializes in creating beautiful and durable floors using specialized epoxy coating. The high quality coatings we use protect and strengthen floors and create entirely new floor coverings for many different properties, both commercial and residential. Specialized epoxy floor coatings are becoming more popular, stretching beyond traditional factory floors and other workplace high traffic floors to residences and garages.
Specialized epoxy coating is a very durable material that outlasts many other flooring options. We have expertise in many different kinds of epoxy flooring systems and we are proud to be a recognized industry leader in this field.
Epoxy is a thermosetting epoxide polymer. When the adhesive cures, it cannot return to its original form. It reacts with other chemicals, which help to cure or harden it, thus creating a strong and durable adhesive. These chemical properties are what make it so useful in sealing and protecting surfaces. As a result, it is useful for commercial, residential, industrial, marine, and even art applications. In fact, epoxy is useful just about everywhere.
Applied correctly, epoxy also provides anti-shrinkage and static, and high resistance to chemicals, corrosion, impact and solvent. It increases the durability of all its surfaces. Epoxy coatings are used for applications such as steel parts in vehicles, ships, industrial and aerospace machine parts, electrical system and electronics among others. They are also applied to concrete walls to make them water resistant. It is flooring application in which we specialize.
Our Epoxy Flooring Craftsmanship
The two most important factors in creating a long-lasting epoxy flooring system are the contractor that performed the initial work and the proper maintenance over the floor’s life. As with all our services, we treat the preparation and application of epoxy flooring as a craft. We perform the work meticulously and with unmatched care. This is absolutely essential to a successful result.
Epoxy floors can be applied to a vary of substrates. However, we generally recommend applying over a specially prepared concrete surface. The surface preparation is absolutely crucial to ensure proper adhesion to the floor. Without good adhesion, epoxy floors can begin to peel, flake, and rapidly deteriorate over time. At Urethane USA, we ensure the proper techniques are used to achieve the correct surface profile. Only until you have a good surface profile, the pores in the concrete will be opened to allow for excellent adhesion.
Depending on the specific type of epoxy we choose together, Urethane USA tailors the surface preparation work to that product type. Our processes includes grinding, shot blasting or acid etching so that pores in the concrete substrate are opened. Usually, we use diamond-cup wheel machines to grind down the concrete. We typically find it most effective to use these machines to prepare the floors for maximum adhesion. This form of surface preparation is usually aggressive enough to properly open the pores, without damaging the integrity of the concrete substrate. Then we carefully remove all dirt, dust and other particulates.
High-Quality Materials & Equipment
The materials we use is another factor that makes Urethane USA stand out. Our relationships with TENNANT PRODUCTS & SHERWIN WILLIAMS allow us to get the best quality products at affordable prices. These manufacturers also provide technical expertise to ensure the application is being performed as they recommend. Additionally, these companies offer best-in-class material warranties that allow us to pass along to our clients.
In addition to these high quality materials, we have access to state of the art equipment. Some other epoxy flooring companies choose to prepare the surface with acid etching as they do not have the proper equipment to properly prepare the concrete. We use state of the art diamond-cup wheel machines. Not only is this equipment critical for preparation, we also offer our customers the option to purchase special cleaning equipment after our service. Depending on the size of the shop, warehouse or floor surface, our partner Tennant offers our clients discounts on machines of all sizes.
The Urethane USA Advantage
For small areas or places that require less preparation, some customers choose to self-apply epoxy floor coatings. However, our hiring skilled craftsman and experienced technicians has many advantages.
The material we use is much higher grade than that typically found in DIY epoxy kits. Epoxy coating quality varies greatly, and we will help you select exactly the right product to make sure your flooring will last.
You need experts to prepare the surface properly, in order to make the floor look great and last longer. We ensure that the crucial preparation phase is completed.
- Money Saving
Although self-application may sound cheaper, many DIY kits have adhesion problems, and you must repeat the process multiple times. Having it done by experts the first time cost less money in the long run.
- Better Looking
When offering a broad variety of colors, textures, paint chips, urethane top coats and other custom options to make your floor look unique.
