An industrial floor makes the garage resilient

A durable and smooth industrial floor of epoxy resin is suitable as a floor covering in a garage for several reasons. It is easy to care for and clean, and brings with it resistance to the typical stresses in a garage. For this reason, it is also in large underground garages and parking garages a favorite choice.

Wet, road salt and slush

The typical stresses for a garage floor are moisture and moisture, which is brought by the vehicle. This ranges from melting snow through the drying body through to condensation, which develops as a result of the vehicle's engine and exhaust heat.

Other types of pollution are leaves, sand and mud, which fall off the wheel arches, engine compartments and subfloors after parking. Often the dirt is mixed with other materials, in winter, for example, with road salt or with the ingredients of puddles next to the water.

Grease resistance protects the environment

Oily and greasy substances are omnipresent in and on vehicles. They can be introduced through the tires or come directly from technical components. Dripping lubricants are not uncommon and are not absorbed by a well-sealed industrial floor.

The epoxy resin forms an impenetrable skin, into which no liquid substance can seep into. In addition to the pure pollution, this important property avoids possibly the potential environmental impact. Sensitivity to tire wear is another important advantage over many other floor coverings.

Cleaning in one go

An industrial floor in a garage consists of a coherent seamless surface. There are no one-way or trickle-in slots or gaps. The cleaning of an industrial floor is simplified. For the clean hold a broom and a puller are usually sufficient.

If soiled by oil, lubricants or grease, grease-dissolving cleaning agents can be used without any problem. Frequently, wiping with textile and absorbent cleaning equipment such as cloths or wiping mops is sufficient for fresh soiling, puddles or laughter.

Do it yourself and use it soon

Laying an industrial floor in the garage is relatively easy with epoxy resin. If no specialist company is to be commissioned, the two-component products can be mixed and applied by themselves. The only possibly greater effort, in the garage to make an industrial floor itself, may arise in the pre-cleaning of the substrate.

The impact-resistant epoxy resin stops after one day of drying time entering and possibly setting up the garage. Its optimum scratch and impact resistance has been reached by the fresh industrial floor after seven days. After final curing, the soil can handle countless frequent journeys with one or more vehicles.

The industrial floor for home is available in many different colors and combinations can mark the pitches, for example, in shared large garages. Signs, pictograms or numbering in the floor can add value. The way to the fire extinguisher, the perfect location for the operation of a garage door-closing or an optical parking aid can be easily made similar to the conventional painting.
