There have been dramatic improvements in the quality of paints and finishes over the last few decades. One of the types of paint to receive such improvements is Industrial Floor Paint. It has seen some remarkable improvements recently. Among them are

better wear ability, skid proofing, and color choice.

Color choice is the area to see the most improvements. In the past, colors were limited to just a few choices like white, grey, red, and black. Occasionally a different color could be requested but the price was unreasonable. For that reason, many industrial complexes stayed within the basic color options. Today there are entire companies built around tinting and offering industrial paint in a variety of colors. This has improved the appearance of everything from factories to manufacturing plants and even schools. I think everyone remembers seeing pictures of dreary looking factories in the 1960’s and 70’s. These new colorants have changed all that with specifically formulated products that resist things like pigment float. This is a remarkable advancement considering most industrial floor paints are made using epoxies.

Another option that has improved for industrial finishes is the non-skid surface. In the past, the non-skid surface included adding sand to the paint. The sand would work for a while but then as time went by the sand would ware down leaving the surface below exposed. It was costly to repaint the floors so the industrial plants were usually forced into purchase large rubber mats just to prevent slip and fall accidents. Next, quartz was used to replace the sand. It lasted a bit longer but the same problems would eventually arise. It was frustrating for a plant manager to keep nice looking floors without breaking the budget. Finally, Rubberized Non Skid formulas were developed that all solved all of these problems. It was attractive, long lasting, affordable, and non-skid. Thanks to improvements in colorizing factory managers now some attractive color choices too.

The next area to see remarkable improvement is in durability. New epoxy materials are now stronger and they help the paint to last longer. Furthermore, the new epoxies go on easier, apply faster, and dry quicker. This cuts labor costs on the initial application. In many cases, only one coat is necessary –further saving money. When the new epoxy products are combined with the new rubberized non-skid formulas, a nearly impenetrable barrier is formed. This helps to resist oil spills, solvents, and other harsh chemicals. In addition, when both are combined with the new colorants, the Industrial Floor Paint of today becomes an excellent way to have a beautiful and long lasting floor in an industrial setting. Even the family garage can benefit from these new improvements.
