Warehouse Floor Coatings — Epoxy, Paint or Urethane?

Warehouse Floor Coated with Rust BulletLets 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.  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.

concrete-floor-in-progressRust Bullet is an Aromatic Urethane with Aliphatic Properties. Why is that important? Aromatic urethane provide 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.

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.

Rust Bullet Standard is the starting point for our warehouse concrete coating system. It is semi-metallic gray in color and more often than not it is used by itself. A minimum of two coats of the gray is required in all installations. Kits include enough material for 2 coats at the specified square footage on smooth concrete. They also include 24oz of MetalBlast for treating oil spots and solvent for cleanup.

    There are two good ways to go with this. First and foremost you are going to need to get the floor clean, regardless of what you use. Without seeing the floor, I would try MetalBlast https://www.garageflooringllc.com/using-metal-blast-prepare-garage-floor/, let it soak for a couple of hours and then power wash it. If you are unable to get the floor cleaned up you may need to grind it.

    Rust Bullet is ideal for automotive applications. It can resist most fluids for weeks, and in some cases years. https://www.garageflooringllc.com/2015/03/06/diesel-fuel-and-brake-fluid-resistant-coatings/ If the product gets damaged, you just sand it down with 150 grit sand paper and recoat the affected area. Make sure you do the 4 coats. I would go all gray, no gloss and no top coat.

    Another option is a good densifier and sealer. No aesthetic value, but if you were to use TL37 densifier and TL40 stain guard it makes it much easier to clean and helps keeps fluids from penetrating

    I have a small auto repair garage, about 1000 sq. ft., and the floor needs some kind of coating. The floor is dirty and has had many oil spills over the years. Cars are moved around in the garage and brought in and out so the chemical resistance needs to be good as well as the adhesion. Were in Minnesota so in the winter the floor gets very cold as cars go in and out and the floor by the garage door get very cold. Is you floor coating a good match for this application? If it is damaged can it be spot repaired?

    How would it compare to epoxy, wear resistant, chemical resistant, temperature tolerance, repair ability, etc? Thanks
