Warehouse Floor Coatings — Epoxy, Paint or Urethane?
Lets face it. Coating a warehouse floor is nothing like coating a garage floor or even a shop. You have millions of dollars of product moving in and out. Forklifts, pallet jacks, trucks and people abusing the floor like almost no other application. Coating a warehouse floor has been a repeated source of pain for building owners. First they pay an exorbitant amount for prep and installation. Then the product does not hold up. Whats the answer.Â epoxy products, paint products and most urethane products will fail in a warehouse location. Rust Bullet has been proven to be effective. We recommend a minimum of four coats for commercial warehouse spaces. Here is a link to help you determine how much Rust Bullet you need.
Rust Bullet is an Aromatic Urethane with Aliphatic Properties. Why is that important? Aromatic urethane provides one set of advantages, while Aliphatic coatings provide another. Rust Bullet combines superior adhesion and resistance to ultraviolet light, weathering, and hydrolysis.
Aliphatic coatings are the superior choice for exterior protection because they are very stable when exposed to ultraviolet light, weathering, and hydrolysis. The raw materials used in formulating aliphatic systems are generally more expensive and have higher viscosity than their aromatic counterparts. Aromatic coatings are more heat and chemical resistant and Rust Bullet provides those advantages as well. Don’t paint your garage floor. Use a product like TruAlloy or Polyurea
For warehouse floors DO NOT recommend the kits. We recommend you purchase the material you need over the phone as we can give substantial quantity discounts because of the freight savings.
