Are you trying to decide what to do with your industrial facilities flooring, but aren’t sure whether you should choose concrete polishing or epoxy coating? At Aetna Integrated Services, we are experts in both, so we know how challenging that choice can be. Which is the better choice is dependent on your particular needs. Read our breakdown here to determine whether concrete polishing or epoxy coating the better choice for your industrial flooring:
Concrete polishing is a cost effective, durable, visually appealing, and low maintenance option for your industrial flooring. Polished concrete is less expensive than epoxy coating, and requires less down time for your business; while epoxy coating takes time to dry, concrete polishing can happen while operations are going on. Additionally, polished concrete has a longer lifespan than epoxy coating; while epoxy coating lasts about 10 years depending on use, polish concrete can last up to 20 years.
Epoxy coating is a fantastic choice if you work with abrasive chemicals at all. While polished concrete is similarly durable, it cannot withstand repeated exposure to acids, oils, or corrosive materials; epoxy coating can. If you work in a more hazardous environment, epoxy coating provides the safety and peace of mind you need by being impact, heat, and fire resistant. It is easy to clean, and can withstand high amounts of traffic. Also, while it is slightly more expensive than concrete polishing, epoxy coating is still affordable.
Regardless of which you choose, Aetna Integrated Services can help you. Call us today, and we will come and fix your industrial flooring up to your specifications.
