What Type of Flooring is the Best For Factory Environments?
The question of which type of flooring is the best for factory environments is one with a broad range of different answers due to the varied kinds of factories in operation. Whilst industries such as the manufacturing, food and beverage and pharmaceutical sectors all require a factory environment, they all have additional flooring requirements. For example, the food and beverage industry may require anti-slip flooring due to the increased risk of spillages; this may be the same in the chemical manufacturing industry. Both of these industries, as well as the pharmaceutical sector, will require a flooring solution that meets all of the stringent hygiene and safety requirements. Whereas manufacturing factories may look more at durability when choosing their floors due to the heavy machinery and traffic. Therefore, it is crucial to find a suitable flooring solution that can also be adapted to be better suited to all of these different factory environments.
Typically the most universally favoured flooring solution for factory environments is epoxy resin flooring, most likely due to its versatility and adaptability to a wide range of industries and applications. This is because epoxy flooring can withstand heavy traffic, machinery, and potential spillages that factory environments can experience. Due to its robust chemical composition, epoxy flooring also doesn’t require as much maintenance as other flooring solutions. Epoxy is basically a very strong adhesive, meaning it’s the best material to bind together resins to create a sturdy floor coating. When you combine these two substances, you form a polyepoxide which are reactive prepolymers and polymers that contain the epoxide groups used to create the flooring system. The most significant advantage of opting for an epoxy resin flooring system for your factory is that epoxy resins can be combined with a co-reactant to enhance the surface of your flooring to make it more suitable for your industry and application. These co-reactants include anti-static, anti-slip features, as well as chemical, impact or heat resistant. This makes it a flexible solution to suit a range of different factory operations.
