What is the best flooring for a shop floor?

What is the Best Flooring for a Shop Floor?

Shop Floor

We are frequent posters on forums like ‘The Garage Journal’ and others. One question that comes up often is what is the best type of flooring to use on a shop floor. Like everything else, it really depends on how you use your floor and what your expectations are. We will go through some of the options and you can decide what works best for you

Concrete Densifier & Conditioner

If you are more worried about protecting the concrete and keeping it from staining, a concrete densifier is probably the most cost effective, efficient and low maintenance solution. A concrete densifier, as the name implies, hardens concrete and fills in the pores. It is a permanent, chemical change to concrete. It penetrates the surface and increases abrasion resistance, reduces dusting and generally speaking makes the concrete more durable. It is not a coating and adds no aesthetic value. It also does not ‘wear off’ and does not need to be re-done. Since it is not a coating, it is not affected like a coating would be.

The counter part to this is a surface conditioner and stain protector such as TL40. This is applied after the densifier and will eventually need to be re-applied. Both concrete densifier and the surface conditioner can be mopped on or applied with a garden sprayer. You can also do a grind and polish application for a high gloss concrete floor — but maintenance is required.

Epoxy Floors

When we talk about an epoxy coating, we are generally talking about an entire system and process. Especially in harsh conditions like a shop, making sure the floor is done right and with the correct materials is extremely important. You will want to diamond grind the floor with a product like Diamabrush Concrete Prep tool, prime the floor, a good base coat and potentially a chemical resistant top coat. That will ultimately depend on which epoxy system you choose.

A full broadcast system is high end and will be more expensive than other systems. After the base epoxy layer is applied it is completely covered with Quartz or Flake. Then the Quartz or flake are covered with a clear epoxy and a couple coats of urethane. I prefer one top coat of clear epoxy followed by an aliphatic urethane.

Traditional epoxy and random broadcast can also be used. You lose a little durability and damage is more noticeable. A better alternative to this is an industrial orange peel textured epoxy. The texture hides damage and it is applied really thick. Some people will go as high end as an epoxy mortar floor, but this is generally overkill.

Rust Bullet for Concrete

This is another option we really like for shop floors. 4 coats of Rust Bullet for Concrete. That’s it. Get your shop floor clean and dry and apply. It is highly chemical resistant, has amazing test and real world results and only requires a light sanding if you want to touch up in the future. Abrasion testing is perhaps the most applicable test and Rust Bullet outperformed all of it’s competitors in third party testing. It also excelled at the accelerated weathering tests and salt spray tests. Both of these are important to those of us in cold weather climates.

Tiles and Roll Out Flooring

Tiles and or Roll Out flooring can be appropriate in some shops. They provide the benefit of anti fatigue, but the nature of what transpires in the shop must be discussed. Generally speaking PVC tiles are a better option than rigid tiles. If you are going to use a roll out floor, you should consider gluing it down.

Garage Floor Coatings in Southern California

Rust Bullet Garage FloorThe problem with garage floor epoxy, urethane and other garage floor coatings in California is plain and simple. The good aliphatic urethane products needed to protect an epoxy garage floor simply can’t be shipped there. What you end up with is a clear coat that yellows from the Sun and tires and simply does not perform. It can’t perform. None of the high performance products can be shipped into that market. Until now!

The Garage Journal, a forum dedicated to all things garage is filling up with testimonials about Rust Bullet for Garage Floors. We have multiple projects posted with testimonials. Here are a couple: Project 1, Project 2 The Rust Bullet product is backed with what we believe to be the strongest testing in the industry.

The best part is according to the manufacturer, Rust Bullet is VOC compliant nationwide, including Southern California. Not a watered down version, the original Rust Bullet for garage floors can be used without an issue.

Why TrueLock HD Garage Floor Tiles?

Why TrueLock HD Garage Floor Tiles

FreeFlow 1To say we have gotten a little attention with the changes we have made recently would be a not so slight under-statement. First we had the ‘nerve’ to suggest that there were good garage floor coatings that presented a great alternative to garage floor epoxy. Then we all but completely changed our preferred manufacturer for the TrueLock garage floor tiles. While the original ‘Standard’ Diamond is still available, and all of our products are still around, we have found that when it comes to a rigid garage floor tile (hard plastic made from Polypropylene), we were going to lead with TrueLock HD. Before we get started on why, we want to remind you that TrueLock HD provides you the best garage floor tiles in the industry but keeps the prices LOW. Two tiles under $2.40 and three under $3.

But take price out of the picture for a second. What makes TrueLock HD Tiles better?

Our TrueLock HD tiles are manufactured with 100% pure high impact polypropylene– no fillers here. We want our product to be affordable, but there is a huge difference between affordable tiles and flat out cheap garage floor tile. We excel at the former and refuse to participate in the latter.

The TrueLock HD tiles are designed and manufactured by the plant. The are made entirely in the USA in an ISO quality certified facility.  Do you want to see improvement to our economy. You vote with how you spend your money. We cast our vote! Add to that the simple and proven fact that the American worker makes high quality material you can count on!

Proprietary Consistent high impact co polymer material used to manufacture: I know, get your dictionary out… In simple English, the unique formula used for TrueLock HD and developed by the ‘leading brand’ results in better tiles. Better ingredients make better foods, they also make better products.

Looks are important, but so is function. double tread pattern and our  coin  looks high tech while creating solid slip resistance in the garage environment. What good is an awesome garage if you are afraid to walk on it.

Smart patterns make our products easier to clean. adding the slightest of a radius to a diamond, for example, you still get the looks, but the floor is easier to clean — and roll over.

½ inch thick and built tough! We are not talking a little tough, we are talking about a product  designed to handle vehicle rolling loads in excess of 36,000 lbs. Lets put that in perspective. According to Ford that is more than two fully loaded F250 Super Duty Trucks, Stacked on top of each other!

The top of the tile and its’ performance are important, but what happens underneath is equally important! Our tiles feature a channeled understructure to allow for maximum airflow and evaporation. This means that water does not sit there, it evaporates and does so as quickly as possible.

Larger tiles can be nice, but at the end of the day 12” (even dimension) modules make for easy measuring and design. They are simpler, faster and more efficient. The look of larger tiles is still easy to achieve by laying the tiles in a 2×2 pattern.

When it comes to modular tiles, we have a lock. Wait, actually we have 16, perfectly designed and implemented locks per tile. It is flat out a superior locking system.

Industry best customer service: Got samples? We will send them free! Need help with a layout, we have the tools and the staff. Need expert advice, we are here. The garage industry has become competitive. Price is important, but who are you really buying from? Our management has been in this industry over a decade. Our management pioneered bringing garage flooring to online retailers and not just expensive catalog companies. Big box stores have price. Some expensive ‘all in one’ garage dealers have outstanding service. We have it all!

TrueLock HD tiles can be interlocked with other TrueLock HD tiles for maximum design options. One popular option is ribbed tiles where you park and diamond tiles everywhere else.

The bottom line is this. You can find cheap garage floor tiles almost anywhere today. You can find a handful of quality tiles, and they are generally very expensive. At Garage Flooring LLC we bring you the best modular floor tiles in the business at the guaranteed lowest prices. Its that simple!

Basement Floor Dust — The cure for concrete dusting in basement

Basement Floor Dust — The Cure for Concrete Dusting in Basement

Perhaps you just built a new home, or you have lived in a house for a while and never addressed the issue. The dust from the concrete in your basement is a major frustration. There is a well known, affordable and easy to apply solution for basement concrete dust.

According to NRMCA.com concrete dusting is

Formation of loose powder resulting from disintegration of surface of hardened concrete is called dusting or chalking. The characteristics of such surfaces are:
  • They powder under any kind of traffic
  • They can be easily scratched with a nail or even by sweeping.

The same article calls for the application of a liquid hardner or densifier to repair the concrete and keep it from dusting. We cite this article so you understand that we are not proposing a new solution. We are simply offering products that the professionals use. We are offering them to the DIY consumer at affordable prices so they can tackle their issues.

One of these issues is concrete dust in the basement. It drives people nuts. Many times the floor will eventually be covered in carpet or other flooring products, but the dusting issue has to be taken care of first. The solution is simple. a concrete densifier.

A densifier is a permanent solution to the concrete dusting issue and not a temporary fix or a coating that can fail or become damaged. The densifier reacts with the concrete, making it harder and filling in the voids. A basic desnifier line TL37 is ideal in many cases. If you have moisture entering the basement from above, TL39 is a better option. If you would like to avoid stains we would suggest a combination of TL37 and TL40.

Application is simple. Just mop it on or apply with a garden sprayer. That is it!

 

Rust Bullet Project

_DSC0009Our friend JB sent us a glowing review of his Rust Bullet Garage Floor. JB used Rust Bullet base coat, some flake and then applied Rust Bullet Clear. He is going to be posting his review on a third party site so we will link to it once it is up. What makes JB’s job a little unusual is he had an installation problem along the way. We were able to work with him and the manufacturer to get the problem fixed. JB knew it was an installation issue not a product issue, he asked for help and we gave it to him. What he writes at the end of the testimonial sums up how we want all of our customers to feel:

 

Justin, your help and support during this project was more than I could ask for.  I don’t spout off about vendors very often but you’re a great guy and it was a pleasure using your product and working with you.  Thank you so much!

I have and will continue to recommend your company to my friends and family and I look forward to doing business with you again in the future.  Anyone considering RustBullet or any of Justin’s products should not hesitate to contact him, he’s top notch!

Garage Floor Densifier

Garage Floor Densifier

Garage Floor DensifierPerhaps you don’t want a coating or anything else on your garage floor and you just want to protect it from stains. Perhaps you have a new slab and you are going to use a containment mat or garage floor tile, but you still want to protect the entire floor from stains, while strengthening the floor from within.

A garage floor densifier is not a coating. A garage floor densifier causes a chemical reaction that will permanently and significantly improve the performance of your concrete slab by increasing moisture resistance, stain resistance and increasing strength. It will also greatly increase abrasion resistance — how easily the floor gets damaged when you drag something over it. When used properly a densifier is incredibly useful in preventing damage caused by moisture, road salts and winter weather. If you plan on installing garage floor tiles or mats, we highly recommend B4 prep solution and densifier

A densifier can also be used in conjunction with an acid stain for a grind and polish application. A densifier can also be used as a stand alone method to protect the concrete floor. TL37 garage floor densifier can be used prior to Rust Bullet to fortify your concrete. While it will  not ‘fix’ a poor concrete job, a garage floor densifier will help to reduce dusting and harden softer concrete.

If you are going to do a grind and polish or acid stain followed by grind and polish, in most cases you will want a professional involved. There are however many applications where densifier can be applied with little or no prep over a garage floor, a shop floor or even an industrial floor.

Densifier For Increased Strength, Reduced Dusting and Better Performance

If performance and strength is your primary concern, simply applying TL37 over a clean garage floor with a basic garden sprayer, is a great application. It will have some stain and waterproofing benefits because of the changes to the concrete, but primarily it will make your concrete harder, less dusty and more resistant to the things we tend to do in our garage and wish we had not :-)

Remember this is a chemical reaction with little to no change in appearance of the floor itself.

Garage Floor Densifier with  Waterproofing

If you are looking for protection from the elements, especially when used in conjunction with modular garage flooring or other products that sit on your slab, using a product like TL39 to densify your floor and protect it from the elements is a great idea. It will helpkeep moisture from penetrating your slab which helps to prevent the damage that is done by harsh winters and trapped moisture.

Densifier with Waterproofing &  Stain Resistance

We have a lot of customers who want a rock hard garage floor that is easy to clean, but they have major concerns with epoxy and other garage floor coatings. The basic issue is weld slag and other heavy duty work can damage coatings. If nothing is done to the floor then every drop of oil and grime will penetrate the slab making stains that are difficult to remove — and make future coatings difficult. Using a densifier like TL37 followed by TL40 concrete conditioner is an ideal way to both strengthen and protect your garage floor, with minimal aesthetic changes. Please note TL40 has Silane as a primary component. When combined with TL37 densifer TL40 give you the best protection for a densifier, stain resistance and waterproofing.

Mechanic shops, airplane hangers and hobbyists are among the people who love this solution

Using a Densifier in Conjunction with Other Garage Flooring

If I were purchasing garage floor tiles, parking mats or another form of garage flooring that may let some moisture through to the slab, I would strongly consider one of the densifier options above. I would either do TL39 or TL37 and TL40.

TL40 CONCRETE CONDITIONER WITH STAIN GUARD
$119.99 ea.

TL40 is a one component water based ultra small particle size self-crosslinking hydrophobic organic polymer and silane/siloxane designed specifically for use in the grind and polish of concrete/cement as a surface conditioner and stain guard to be applied before the final polishing step to increase long term performance, gloss and stain resistance. It can also be used in DIY applications by mopping it on a floor that has been primed with TL37. One gallon covers 800 - 1200 Sq. Ft. with real world coverage being closer to 800

The 7940 is not a stand alone densifier. It is really a stain guard. If used alone, it tends to penetrate to deep and leave voids on the top of the surface. The 7937 basically densifies first and acts as a primer per say.

* Increases durability and stain resistance and abrasion resistance.

*Improves weathering, densifies and reduces efflorescence.

*Protects and fortifies concrete as it seals against moisture damage.

*Application will reduce dusting and increase concrete life.

*Reduces water absorption into the substrate.

VOC: 50 grams per liter

TEST AREA: Concrete substrates vary from geographical regions throughout the country and the actual condition of the concrete can provide varying results. Results can also vary from floor machine weights, RPM speed and the sequence of polishing stages and diamond grit sizes, therefore, test a minimum 4 ft. by 4 ft. area on each type of concrete to determine suitability before undertaking the entire project.

The product may slightly darken the surface. The overall finish characteristics are determined by the polishing diamond grit size and concrete composition.

Focus on Garage Floor Coatings

Perhaps you have noticed over the past two weeks, we have greatly expanded our coatings section on our site. For the most part, these are not products that are ‘NEW’ as must as they are products that we are being more proactive in making available to our customers.

With these changes come a wealth of technical questions and advice. We will be update the site with a lot of additional technical information, but if you have questions, CALL! We are always here to help.

We are also changing our coatings menu to help make the products more readily accessible to you.

Diesel Fuel and Brake Fluid Resistant Coatings?

How do Rust Bullet Concrete Coatings Stand up to Bio Diesel & Brake Fluid?

Rust Bullet Garage Floor Coating in Bio Diesel for 7 YearsI have this ridiculous notion that coatings that are applied in garages, shops and industrial floors should be resistant to the stuff that is used in those areas. Silly right :-) Now I have to offer this disclaimer. You know those TV commercials where you see a guy driving his car and doing a ridiculous stunt. Then they tell you ‘Do not attempt.’ Please don’t turn your garage into a brake fluid or diesel fuel swimming pool! Please clean things up that spill on your floor and for heavens sake, please do not attempt to store products that have fumes in a pickle jar :-)

This is just one more reason we are so impressed with the Rust Bullet line of coatings. The amazing adhesion, lack of prep needed and incredible test results leave us, and hopefully you floored. Remember to check out their ASTM testing summary as well

Here is the story behind the story, then more picture.

I attached a few pics  of the coated panels that have been soaking in Bio-Diesel Fuel since 2007. I tried to get a few different shots, so you can it’s not lifting, and there hasn’t been any coating degradation. Also, the fuel still does not have any cloudiness to it.

We have one that we did for Hot August Nights (big car show here) back in August 2014.  We took a panel and set it in Brake Fluid. It took several weeks for Rust Bullet to start to de-bond from the surface. If you notice in these pics, it may have de-bonded from the surface, but it did not break down the coating. Again, if the coating were to start to break down, the brake fluid would have cloudiness to it. People that saw this at our both at the car show were absolutely floored.
 

Here are some additional pictures, including the samples that are still sitting in Brake fluid — Since August. Note they did not start to come off in the brake fluid for over two weeks. The diesel fuel samples are still in tact, and they have been there since 2007!
