Chemically resistant coatings preserve a smooth, high-quality finish for a long period, even when exposed to caustic solvents, acids, and alkalis. In some specific sectors, floors can be configured to withstand the chemicals used in the industry, for example, aircraft hangars can have a surface that won’t be damaged by aviation fluid.
The corrosion of a floor finish can be accelerated by exposure to chemicals corrosive to concrete – and it’s not just industrial chemicals that can ruin flooring – even spills in commercial facilities can corrode concrete finishes.
It is especially important for sensitive food production, manufacturing, healthcare, and kitchen environments to ensure that the floor beneath your feet can withstand on-site chemicals. A dirty floor would become an unsightly and unhygienic blemish that could harbor bacteria.
