Concrete Protection to Meet Your Industrial Needs

Published by Émilie Aimé

Concrete flooring in industrial applications needs the best protection to extend its lifetime. Many things can damage the concrete depending on the environment that it is exposed to. That is why it’s important to know what can damage the concrete and how we should protect it.

What Is Industrial Flooring?

Industrial flooring represents all concrete surfaces in industrial environments that need to be protected, such as the following:

  • Manufacturing plants (textile, paper, appliances, furniture, miscellaneous manufacturing, etc.)
  • Distribution centres
  • Warehouses

Industrial Floors Are Exposed to a Variety of Extreme Conditions Affecting Performance Including:

  • Chemicals
  • Puncture
  • Abrasion
  • Wear
  • Temperature variations
  • Others
