Concrete Floor Coating: What You Need To Know

Concrete Coating is a very general term that can mean any of the following:
– Application of clear protective sealer to vulnerable concrete slabs
– The process of changing a concrete surface to make it harder and more resistant to damage, chemical attack, wear and tear
– The installation of decorative resurfacing solutions such as:

  • Concrete Painting
  • Resin Marble Effects
  • Flake Floors and decorative epoxy finishes
  • Concrete Polishing

– Remedial actions to repair the surface of concrete to remove damage, holes, cracks, etc

The good news is that Hawk Concrete Floor Coatings can help you with any of the above and more.

Some Key Points Regarding Concrete Coating Systems:

– Adhesion:

  • Surface Preparation is absolutely vital< in gaining a permanent bond between a surface coating and its substrate
  • Adhesion Values: Technical Data sheets record just how well a product adheres to the surface. Premium epoxy, resin, sealers and other coatings MUST have a high level of adhesion.

– Performance Characteristics:

    • How resistant to abrasion is the coating?
    • How UV stable is the resin?
    • How flexible is the material?
    • Ultimately, how will this product meet the requirements of YOUR flooring scenario?

What’s the Big Difference Between “Paint” & “Painting,” Versus “Epoxy Resin” & “Floor Installation?”

There is a massive difference. Walk into most hardwares and retail outlets, or take a drive and check out the local residential driveways. You will find a showcase of the best paint has to offer! The best “Tough Paint” and “Epoxy Paint” that money can buy and it still peels off over time. HAWK CFC maintains that paint and concrete don’t mix, and choose the following process for your concrete floor:
1) The correct surface preparation to get a permanent bond
2) Installing a Floor with the correct primers (and vapour barriers where required), and Flooring Resins.

And it doesn’t actually cost that much to do the job properly.
