High standards are the norm in the aviation and aerospace industry, which demands the same level of excellence in its facility floor coatings. From aesthetics to durability and safety, the right flooring in aviation and aerospace operations can make all the difference in the overall success of day-to-day operations.
Concrete floors are a common sight in facilities that store and repair commercial or government aircraft. When bare and unsealed, concrete is porous and can easily soak up jet fuel, Skydrol®, solvents and other aircraft fluids, eventually causing the concrete to break down over time. The more corrosive the substance, the more likely it is that floors will become uneven and damaged, posing a safety threat to technicians, pilots and other maintenance and hangar personnel.
