A shop floor is one of the most at-risk places for concrete damage. The amount of traffic, either from people or heavy machinery, is extremely high, making the potential for damage proportionally elevated. In particular, shop floors can suffer from abrasions and chemical spills, both of which can mar the surface of the concrete floors.
A shop floor system provides thorough and comprehensive protection for your high traffic floors. It is a high build concrete coating system that is made up of a water-based epoxy priming coat, finished with a urethane topcoat to help increase wear resistance. In addition to all of the structural protections, you can add a layer of aggregate, such as decorative paint chips or sand, to help give character to your concrete floors.
Ghostshield recommends the following products in a Shop Floor System:
Primer: Epoxy 325: is a water-borne, two component, epoxy designed to prime concrete floors.
Top Coat: Urethane 645: is a 65% solids two-component clear polyester/aliphatic polyurethane coating.
