Industrial flooring was the birthplace for many epoxy projects. The products we are using today are much better, but were born out of the need for a surface that would resist heavy traffic and protect the concrete from damage that can occur in an industrial environment.
We now have joint materials designed to repair and protect joints; concrete repair materials designed to install and put floors back into service in minutes rather than days. We have topcoats that resist impact and shock. Technology has propelled the use of epoxy and other resins from industrial facilities to many other types of facilities.
The ease of repair and versatility of the products help with quick turn around and savings due to little loss of time.
