Epoxy, Acrylic (Methyl Methacrylate), & Urethane Coatings

High Build Epoxy Coatings

High Build Epoxy Coatings are practical, cost effective, and attractive. For most situations we recommend that our high performance high build epoxy floors receive Wheelaborator Blastrac shotblast preparation.

High build epoxy floor coatings are installed in thickness up to 50 mils thick (most applications range between 12-24 mils thick), and can be installed over a variety of surfaces which can include vertical surfaces. Urethane top coats are used for added chemical and abrasion resistance.

Some Typical Applications Include:

  • Rest Rooms
  • Clean Rooms
  • Shower & Locker Rooms
  • Research Facilities
  • Laboratories
  • Showrooms
  • Warehouses
  • Light Manufacturing/Assembly Areas


  Urethane top coats are used for added chemical and abrasion resistance.

From basic epoxy coatings, to complex chemical resistant systems, we handle it all.

Self Leveling Epoxy Coatings are coating systems that are installed at 30, 60, and 120 mils thick. They are highly durable and easy to clean.

Some Typical Applications Include:

  • Retail Sales
  • Restaurants
  • Showrooms

Cry-A-Stain is a lightly pigmented or translucent coating that mimics a concrete stain but is actually a coating. Installation thickness is 32 to 48 mils (a Dur-A-Flex product).

Some Typical Applications Include:

  • Retail Sales
  • Grocery Stores
  • Restaurants
  • Showrooms

Heavy Duty Epoxy Floor Systems

Heavy Duty Epoxy Floor Systems

For heavy duty resurfacing look to trowel-applied epoxy resurfacers. These are a three component mortar of 100 % solids epoxy resin, catalyst, and special blended aggregates. Most installations are applied at thicknesses of 187 mils (3/16 inch) to 250 mils (1/4 inch), but can go as thick as needed. They are porous and need to have at least an epoxy coating applied as a top coat.

  • Loading Docks
  • Ailes
  • Ramps
  • Steel Wheel Cart Areas

For most situations we recommend preparation for our resurfacers are done with Wheelaborator Blastrac Shotblast equipment.

Epoxy Broadcast Floor Systems

Epoxy Broadcast Floor Systems

Resin rich epoxy resurfacers are a very cost effective way to resurface concrete floors. Installation thickness begins at 60 mils (1/16 inch), and goes up to 187 mils (3/16 inch) thick. These floors are non-porous, seamless, and versatile.

These can be installed in a slurry or neat, with or without broadcasting aggregate into the epoxy binder.

Some Typical Applications

  • Manufacturing Plants
  • Kitchens
  • Laboratories
  • Service Areas/Garages
  • Containment Areas

Offered for all above systems, is a chemical resistant urethane top coat for added chemical resistance when needed

Polyurethane Modified Systems

Polyurethane Modified Systems

Polyurethane modified systems is a 100% solids, aromatic, cementitious urethane concrete coating system and can range from a slurry broadcast to a trowel applied mortar. These systems are best suited to deal with thermal shock. They range from 125 mils (1/8th inch) to 250 mils (1/4 inch) in thickness. This type of system cures in approximately 12 hours.

Some Typical Applications Include:

  • Coolers & Freezers
  • Kitchens
  • Plant Aisles
  • Food Plants
  • Service Areas/Garages
  • Chemical Processing Areas
  • Bottling Areas

Methyl Methacrylate

Methyl Methacrylate Flooring Systems

Methyl Methacrylate, or MMA as it is commonly known, is a polymer flooring that uses a dry powder hardener with a liquid resin. MMA systems can range in thicknesses and a variety of colors. When using MMA systems, it is a necessity to have good and proper ventilation.

Although the material has a strong odor, it has the ability to cure within an hour at very low temperatures.

Some Typical Applications Include:

  • Freezers
  • Kitchens
  • Laboratories
  • Food Plants
  • Refrigerated Warehouses
  • Chemical Storage
