Chemical Processing Flooring

Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast

Chemical Process Facility Flooring Ideas

For a factory that processes and manufactures chemicals, creating a controlled environment is a must. Careful consideration has to go into selecting the right materials to build your lab. The flooring is no different. Choosing the right flooring is one of the most important steps! If you’re about to construct a laboratory in Brisbane, Gold Coast, or Sunshine Coast, you need to use My Floor! We can provide you with flooring solutions tailor-made for chemical processing areas.

Since your lab processes potentially chemicals, you need a chemically resistant floor. If you don’t coat your floor correctly, chemicals can absorb into the surface. That is terrible news for a couple of reasons. First, your floor will start to deteriorate from the inside. This will significantly reduce the lifespan of your floor, as it will soon fall apart. Not only that, but the chemicals can seep down into the soil underneath. This will cause further damage to your floor and also to the environment. If your lab processes dangerous chemicals, you need a floor that’s resistant to them.

Beyond chemicals, there are also other contaminants that you don’t want in your lab. The ideal lab floor should prevent the accumulation of:

  • Dirt
  • Dust
  • Liquids
  • Microbial agents
  • Debris from machinery

If your floor can resist all of these, then you will keep your subfloor intact. That will keep your lab safe and protect the environment outside from everything. As you can see now, choosing the right floor for your lab is extremely important.

Challenges Chemical Manufacturing Facility Floors Face

A chemical processing plant is a busy area. Workers, machinery, equipment, and vehicles are frequently at play. Your floor needs to be able to stand up to a lot of heavy traffic from workers, carts, forklifts, and more. Skid resistance is also a must to protect your workers from slips and falls. Also, if any liquids should spill, a waterproof surface is ideal.

Since your lab is busy, it’s only natural for a bit of a mess to accumulate during the day. Machines cause debris, workers leave footprints, things drop, and more. It’s best if your laboratory floor is easy to keep clean. That way, you don’t waste a ton of time cleaning at the end of the day. Porous floors such as traditional concrete are bad about getting dirty quickly. Not only that, but untreated concrete also produces quite a bit of dust. This will accumulate on your equipment and chemical containers. That’s not good!

As with any work area, drops and spills are inevitable. Chemical processing plants involve a lot of heavy machinery and tools. Your floor needs to be strong enough to withstand some heavy impacts. Traditional concrete is bad about cracking quite easily. You need a surface that will shake off heavy blows with ease!

To summarize, the ideal laboratory floor needs the following features:

  • Able to withstand heavy traffic from workers and vehicles
  • Is effortless to keep clean after a busy day of work
  • Is resistant to chemicals, stains, and getting slippery
  • Can withstand heavy impacts from drops and spills
  • Won’t let liquid seep into the subfloor

Now that you know what goes into the perfect lab floor let’s look at our top solutions at MyFloor!

 

Epoxy Coatings and Epoxy Floors For Chemical Manufacturing Facilities

A perfect option for chemical plants is our epoxy coatings and floors. What is epoxy? Well, it’s a mix made up of resins and hardening agents. When combined, they form epoxy, a tough and durable resin compound. An epoxy coating is a thin layer of epoxy applied to an existing surface. It reinforces and preserves the floor and is also highly reflective. If your chemical plant already has a surface that you’d like to fortify, an epoxy coating is ideal. It will make your floor durable and chemically resistant. You also won’t have to worry about dirt, dust, or liquids accumulating on your epoxy coating. High impacts also won’t make a dent in it!

An epoxy floor is a thicker layer of epoxy that becomes its surface. An epoxy floor is a good option if you’re building your laboratory from scratch. Epoxy floors are incredibly durable, long-lasting, reflective, and resistant to chemicals and liquids. When you choose an epoxy floor or coating from My Floor, you’ll enjoy these benefits:

  • Superior durability. Epoxy is the king of toughness and durability. It’s the most rigid flooring solution that we offer. An epoxy floor will also last for years and years as long as you properly maintain it! Not only that, but your floor will be able to withstand all the severe impacts of machinery and tools.
  • Reflectiveness. An epoxy coating or floor produces a glossy shine. Not only is this decorative, but it bounces back a lot of ambient light. As a result, you can light a room by using far less electricity.
  • Resistant to chemicals, liquids, and stains. You won’t have any problem establishing a controlled environment with your epoxy floors! Nothing will get in or out of your lab through the floor, guaranteed!
  • Reflectiveness. An epoxy coating or floor produces a glossy shine. Not only is this decorative, but it bounces back a lot of ambient light. As a result, you can light a room by using far less electricity.
  • Easy to keep clean. An epoxy floor is a seamless, non-porous resin floor. No dirt or dust will accumulate, so cleaning it is a breeze. As long as you dry-mop and sweep daily, your floor will stay looking pristine!
  • Anti-slip additives are available. At My Floor, we can install an anti-slip coating to the top of your surface. You won’t have to worry about any workers slipping and falling!
Grind and Seal Polished Concrete For Chemical Manufacturing Facilities

Another fantastic option is one of our grind and seal polished concrete systems. Does your laboratory have an existing concrete surface? Then a grind and seal floor would be perfect! As the name implies, we grind back the concrete’s top layer and then seal it with a coating. The grinding process completely smooths, evens, and cleans the surface. The sealant then adds durability and resistance to the floor. Grind and seal polished concrete is a seamless solution that’s easy to install.

Unlike traditional concrete, polished concrete is non-porous. That means no chemicals, dust, dirt, or liquids will seep through to the subfloor. Grind and seal systems are also highly customizable. You can select the level of sheen as well as the level of aggregate exposure. Aggregate can look decorative, but it requires existing aggregates in your concrete slab. If your existing slab doesn’t have aggregates, you won’t be able to choose exposure levels.

Grind and seal polished concrete has the following benefits for chemical plants:

 

  • Excellent durability. The sealant adds a lot of durability to your floor. A grind and seal floor can withstand a lot of heavy traffic from workers and equipment. It can also put up with heavy impacts from dropped tools and machinery. The surface will wear down after time, though, and you’ll have to re-apply the sealant.
  • Resistant to chemicals, liquids, and stains. The top sealant also adds superior resistance. No chemicals stand a chance of penetrating your floor. Not only that, but microbial agents and mold won’t get an opportunity to grow either! Your floor will stay wholly contained.
  • Slip-resistance is available. We can also add an extra layer to the top sealant to include skid-resistance. This is a must for chemical processing plants!
  • Easy to keep clean. Just like epoxy floors, grind and seal floors are simple to keep clean. Dust and dirt won’t accumulate so that you can sweep it all away! For good measure, make sure to dry mop as well.

As you can see, we’ve got fantastic flooring solutions for chemical plants at MyFloor. Reach out to us if you need laboratory flooring in Brisbane, Gold Coast, or Sunshine Coast!

what our clients say

We had My Floor in about 6 odd years ago to do a grind & seal. The floor has maintained it’s colouring, it’s durable, aesthetically pleasing, easy to clean and has shown no signs of wearing. I remember the first point of contact I had with My Floor, we were contacted back straight away, the process was easy and smooth , staff were friendly, and I believe it was reasonably priced. We’ve since been contacted with promotional deals for cleaning services and like before the customer service has been next to none. Will definitely be getting them back in future. Great job My Floor ????

Racheal Frayer

The MY Floors lads recently completed about 50 square metres of concrete mechanical floor polishing at my home in Newmarket. It was a very challenging job as it had to marry up with a floor they had done 6 years previously. It took about a week but the result is first class and durable forever. They kept going until my wife and I were totally satisfied with the finish. I would recommend My Floor to anyone who wants the real deal floor finish.
