Chemical Resistant Epoxy Floor Coatings, Cracks and Joints
Cracks in concrete are a result of various factors such as shrinking or ground settlement. Joints serve to absorb potential cracks. Whatever the cause, concrete cracks. As a result we need to be crack and joint specialists if our epoxy coatings are to succeed.
One of the first things we look at when evaluating application of chemical resistant epoxy floor coatings are cracks and joints and how we will deal with them. Notice the photo below with the yellow areas showing a side view of cracked concrete. To prevent the finished epoxy coating from cracking it is important to apply a filler that fills the crack from top to bottom with the ability to fully cure without direct access to air.
The importance of proper surface preparation, crack and joint repair is to prevent cracks from developing on your chemical resistant epoxy floor coatings.
