Everlast Décor Floor is engineered to be chemical resistant, while it protects and maintains its surface integrity.
You may be here because you want to consider resurfacing your shop floor. It could be that your last floor was only a couple simple coats of paint which are now damaged from the normal punishment that most shops floors must endure on a day-to-day basis.
One of the strongest reasons is to protect the floor from chemical invasion which could mean absorption of pollutants that incur long-term safety hazards to your guests and employees,—resulting in expensive corrective action and maintenance. For practical and environmental reasons the Environmental Protection Agency urges the use of epoxy and urethane floors in shop areas because of their endurance and reduction of long-term liability for contamination effects. And so most contractors go to their local paint store and pick up a few gallons of “industrial” epoxy floor paint and apply it to the floor. This usually will last through the building inspections and sometimes even for a couple months while the business is getting established. But then the inevitable begins to happen. Without a complete floor system designed to take daily exposure to YOUR SHOP’s chemicals, the floor will soon begin to deteriorate. That’s why we recommend that you list the common chemicals that your shop will be exposed to so that we can compare it to our test results and be sure that the components of your Everlast Décor Floor System are the correct ones for the environment it will be installed in.
Our floor systems have been tested for dozens of chemicals and chemical combinations to assure our customers of its viability and endurance under extreme conditions, and we have many formulations available depending on your facilities’ chemical exposure.
Better to use a tested system, and eliminate doubt, then to discover later that an off-the-shelf product didn't have the properties and strengths to resist the chemicals you are using now or may be using in the future.
