Floor Coatings and Sealers

Maverick services  interior concrete floors, high speed polish, line removal, spall repair, crack repair.  Offering epoxy, polyurethane, and elastomeric floor coating systems.

 

Warehouses and loading docks are tough environments for flooring.  Bare concrete has cracks and joints, which combined with heavy traffic conditions, can cause concrete spalls and breakage, potholes, low spots, etc.  This can wreak havoc on the wheels and suspensions on your material handling equipment; the repairs can run into the tens of thousands of dollars.

 

Maverick provides knowledge and expertise in warehouse and loading dock floors, using the latest high performance epoxy and polyurethanes. Industrial flooring systems range from thin mil epoxy coatings to 1/4" trowelled epoxy flooring,  urethane resurfacers, and non slip systems.

 

Epoxy Floor Coating

The ideal epoxy floor system for your warehouse will exhibit a level, durable, seamless, easy-to-clean finish, and provide a permanent solution for your facilities’ flooring needs.  3/16 to 1/4 inch epoxy resurfacers or trowelled epoxy toppings are the heaviest duty systems, and can withstand even the heaviest of vehicle usage, including forklifts and other heavy warehouse equipment.  For low to medium traffic warehouses, or shorter term applications (leased facilities, etc.) we provide thin mil coating systems.  These systems provide the same cleanability, dust proofing, and abrasion resistance as the troweled resurfacers, but are not as scrape and gouge resistant, as the epoxy resurfacers.

 

There are two primary warehouse floor coating systems that are recommended, and each has its own strengths and weaknesses:

 

Epoxy/Polyurethane hybrid system - Thin Mil Coatings

 

Epoxy primer coat seals the concrete, and provides maximum adhesion and build thickness to the system.  Polyurethane topcoat is applied for maximum cleanability, gloss retention, abrasion, chemical, and slip resistance.  Typically used where the concrete is not heavily worn or rough, and traffic conditions are low to medium. It does not have good impact resistance, or resistance to scraping or gouging.  However, this system provides outstanding wear resistance, chemical resistance, cleanability, gloss and light reflection.

 

Note:  epoxy is not typically recommended for the topcoat, since it has poor color stability (fading, staining, etc.), lower scratch resistance, gloss retention, and slip resistance.

 

1/8 to 1/4 inch Urethane Resurfacer system (trowelled or self leveling)

 

This system is highly durable for heavy traffic conditions, and provides a permanent solution;   it has the added benefit of restoring a heavily damaged concrete floor, to a smooth condition, and providing a vapor barrier for the concrete, which is needed in certain circumstances.   An epoxy/urethane thin mil coating system is typically applied over this, for maximum cleanability, gloss retention, abrasion, chemical, and slip resistance.

 

We provide complete installation with our own crews.¬† Work may be done over night, over weekends, and/or holidays, giving you the quickest time completion possible with quality results guaranteed.
