Today, more and more people are aware of the need to protect and conserve our environment. “Going Green” is not just a slogan, it’s a goal. Taking care of our air and water and all our natural resources is a national trust. Everlast Epoxy is doing our part, too.
Every facility has its own special need for protecting its floors and walls. Porous or cracked concrete, eroded joints in tile, and open control joints all pose problems for facility supervisors having to protect against mold, insects, and bacteria infestation hazards. Everlast® Floor can solve those problems in a way that is also better for the environment.
Everlast® Floor is made from natural stones and organic resins. Unlike most other epoxy floors which are daily depleting the ozone layer with their harsh solvents, Everlast® Floor contains no solvents. No solvents means no evaporation and contamination, which makes Everlast Floor one of the “greenest” floors in the industry.
Less Water Consumption
Since our flooring is seamless and non-porous, we are naturally cleaner, requiring less water and cleansers and less pesticides to route out pests and insects. There are no pores for dirt and grime to penetrate. Less water is consumed when cleaning.
Additionally, Everlast Floor contains an anti-microbial additive that eliminates the ability of many common chemicals to absorb into the floor. Such household favorites as coffee, cola, mineral oil, household cleaners, motor oil, ammonia, hydrogen peroxide, sulfuric acid, iodine, kerosene and so many more simply cannot penetrate the strong epoxy bond and contaminate the floor.
Less Pesticides Needed
Because Everlast® Floor is seamless, there are no cracks or crevices for insects to hide. Cleaning is also easier and more effective. This minimizes the insect population and less pesticides are needed.
Less Waste During Installation
Very little waste is generated during the installation of Everlast® Epoxy Flooring. This is not true of most other flooring. For most tile installations, there are usually a few wheelbarrow loads of leftover scrap pieces. Sheet PVC and rubber flooring installations leave an enormous amount of waste. This just sits in our landfills. Everlast® epoxy floors are installed one bucket at a time. The waste on an Everlast epoxy flooring project will consist of the leftover bucket at the end of each phase of the job. Usually the non-recyclable portion of the waste is less than 50 pounds. Everlast® epoxy floor comes in plastic recyclable buckets and cardboard boxes.
Available with recycled content
Finally, as an alternative to our marble stones, we offer our Everlast Epoxy Eco Floor. The Eco floor is made from vibrant-colored glass chips from recycled glass. By using the glass chips, we are helping to reduce the number of bottles in our landfills while adding another eight vivid colors to our, already, vast selection of 42 decorative colors.
Environmentally-friendly AND an attractive accessory to any commercial décor, Everlast Epoxy Flooring is a win-win for everybody!
