Don’t Allow Car Chemicals, Oils, and Other Chemicals to Stay Too Long
If you work with chemicals like paint, household cleaners, or use your vehicles over your industrial epoxy floor, then chances are high that chemicals, gas, or engine oils spill on the floors. The best way to deal with these is by spot cleaning immediately you notice them. Chemicals will tend to react with the floor surfaces and dent them or completely damage them in case they react. Shop towels do this perfectly. But as mentioned before, make sure you understand which chemical you are dealing with and treat it appropriately to avoid hurting yourself and those around you.
Protect the Floor Against Damage
While we put our confidence in industrial epoxy to be very durable and easy to clean, preventing unnecessary soiling and damage is important. For instance, if your floor or part of it is used for welding projects, you should lay welding mats over it to keep the floor in top shape. And if your floor is going to handle heavy loads, use plywood to shield it against the weight.
Should Industrial Epoxy Peel or Chip?
Ideally, a properly installed epoxy floor should never chip or peel. It chemically bonds to the concrete surface and cures to form a very durable covering that should never dent if you clean and maintain it regularly. The contractor installing your industrial epoxy should recommend high-quality epoxy resins and do a good job installing them. The concrete slab needs to be ground down and prepped properly before epoxy installation for quality outcomes.
