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.

Image-conscious aviation facilities typically specify a high-gloss coating that is easy to clean and delivers excellent light reflectivity. Without proper protection, the introduction of grease, solvents and harsh cleaning solutions can cause concrete floors to become dull, stained and unsightly.
Beyond great aesthetics, floor coatings for the aviation and aerospace industry may also require:
Flooring for aviation and aerospace facilities must perform under the rigorous conditions of daily operations and cleanings, yet retain its beautiful, highly reflective finish over the long term. A well selected and installed flooring system can stand up to frequent chemical spills and wear-and-tear, while improving the safety of building occupants and providing an elegant backdrop for prized aircraft.
