If you could think of one word that should describe machine shop flooring, it would probably have to be “tough.”
It has to withstand a wide scope of stresses, including:
While a concrete slab is certainly a tough substrate, it is a porous material that, without the proper coatings, can crack, buckle and become pitted. This can result in a number of dangers to personnel, as well as to expensive equipment. Just think about the damage a forklift can undertake arising from the repetitive impact caused by driving over large divots. Not only can it cause instability of the forklift, the wellbeing of the driver can also be at stake. Repetitive damage can also cause suspension issues and can require more frequent and costly repairs.

It is applied with two coats of epoxy and topcoated with a light stable, chemical resistant urethane, Eco-HTS™ 100 (High Traffic System), providing slight texture for added slip resistance and durability. This system can be applied indoors during working hours.
Tennant 25 WG-240 is a 25 mil, three layer, economical system with a gloss finish. This system is applied with two coats of epoxy and topcoated with WearGuard™-240. This system offers the best value as it is cost effective and extremely durable. With under 250g/L VOC’s this system meets VOC regulations, but is best applied during shut down applications and with proper ventilation. This system is not light stable.

Tennant Shop Floor DB (Double Broadcast) is a four layer, nominal 1/8" system, with a double broadcast of silica sand. This satin finish workhorse system provides additional thickness and more durability for high traffic and high abuse areas.

Apart from helping reduce costly repairs, another important aspect of installing a floor coating is its ability to help aid against slip-and-fall incidents. If a floor is covered with pits, cracks and spilled liquids, additional texture is necessary to provide slip resistance for foot traffic. Also, when concrete is left uncoated, overtime it can begin to deteriorate and release dust particles into the air that are not only dangerous to people when inhaled, but can find their way inside equipment, causing further equipment damage or failures.
