Industrial Floor Coatings
Industrial Floor Coatings:
Industrial Floor Coatings
Our staff has more than 20 years of experience in aerospace manufacturing and repair operations. Our team has designed, and managed chemical and hazardous material storage areas and we understand the adverse impacts industrial materials can have on your facility and the environment. We specialize in quality high performing floor systems in harsh environments.
Epoxy floor finishes have been the choice floor finishes for garage floors, hangars, warehouses, and other industrial type floors. We coat, polish, or stain your floor space using the most durable materials at a very cost-effective price.
Staining concrete is an application that is becoming increasingly popular. The concrete is prepped to receive the stain, scored if requested, stained, then sealed. The biggest advantage to staining besides the finish is not having a coating applied other than the sealer. The biggest disadvantage though tends to be the condition of the existing concrete or if you have several
Polished concrete is the process of sanding the top of your concrete to a smooth naturally shiny finish! Polished concrete is becoming increasingly popular method of decorative concrete.
Battery Charging Areas
Provides protection to the concrete floor slab against sulfuric acid at 65% and up concentration, and at the same time providing abrasion, gouging and impact resistance, required for forklift truck use.
Wastewater Treatment Plants
Not only are wastewater treatment facilities exposed to constant moisture and temperature fluctuations but are also potentially impacted by sulfuric and hydrochloric acids, chlorine-based materials and other harsh chemicals.
Unlike containment areas, pits hold chemical for long periods and require assurance that the installed lining protects against corrosion and leakage by chemicals held in them.
Spillage in Production Areas
Knowing the names of your production chemicals is not enough to provide the right flooring. Understanding the length of exposure, the temperature and the frequency of the spillage is vital to proper material choice.
Lining of Containment Areas
Containment linings are designed for short-term immersion exposure. (24 to 72 hours). See out EPA compliance link.
Trenches generally have lower chemical concentration exposure but require added protection against the abrasive action of moving liquid. It is also important to understand the corrosive nature of the liquids at the surface line when the liquid is at rest in the trench.
Epoxy commercial flooring is well-suited for Industrial settings many reasons.
- Resists punctures
- Stain resistant top coat
- Slip-resistant, safe surface
- Microbe and bacteria resistant
- Easy to clean with no waxing needed
- Seamless surface for strict hygiene standards
- Resists cleaning chemicals, harsh disinfectants, and solvents

Crystalline Silica In Concrete
Crystalline Silica is prevalent in concrete and poses a serious health risk to humans when exposed to concrete dust if certain precautions are not taken. Crystalline silica is a common mineral found in the earth’s crust. Materials like sand, stone, concrete, and mortar contain crystalline silica. It is also used to make products such as glass, pottery, ceramics, bricks, and artificial stone.
Performance Concrete Systems have trained staff experts in OSHA and EPA requirements that directly apply to concrete coating services. We go above and beyond when it comes to ensure health and safety and dust control on all of our jobs. We also offer OSHA required respirator, and crystalline silica training to other contractors within the industry.
Respirable crystalline silica – very small particles at least 100 times smaller than ordinary sand you might find on beaches and playgrounds – is created when cutting, sawing, grinding, drilling, and crushing stone, rock, concrete, brick, block, and mortar. Activities such as abrasive blasting with sand; sawing brick or concrete; sanding or drilling into concrete walls; grinding mortar; manufacturing brick, concrete blocks, stone countertops, or ceramic products; and cutting or crushing stone result in worker exposures to respirable crystalline silica dust. Industrial sand used in certain operations, such as foundry work and hydraulic fracturing (fracking), is also a source of respirable crystalline silica exposure. About 2.3 million people in the U.S. are exposed to silica at work.
Workers who inhale these very small crystalline silica particles are at increased risk of developing serious silica-related diseases, including:
- Silicosis, an incurable lung disease that can lead to disability and death
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Kidney disease
- Lung cancer
To better protect workers exposed to respirable crystalline silica, OSHA has issued two new respirable crystalline silica standards: one for construction, and the other for general industry and maritime. OSHA will begin enforcing most provisions of the standard for construction on September 23, 2017, and will begin enforcing most provisions of the standard for general industry and maritime on June 23, 2018.
