Benefits of Resin for Hangar and Aerospace Facility Flooring
If you are looking for flooring options for an aviation or aerospace facility, then consider professionally-installed industrial floor coatings. Resin flooring systems can be both high-performing and practical, making them a great choice for a hangar floor.
The benefits of using industrial concrete epoxy or resinous flooring for aircraft facility flooring include:
- Chemical resistance
- Water resistance
- Slip resistance
- The ability to add safety markings
- Attractive results
Polyurethane and industrial concrete epoxy floor coatings are the go-to materials for these flooring systems. With several high-quality product formulas, color options, and characteristics that can be changed, a skilled team like Surface Technology can create a custom solution to address the specifications of your space.
Industrial Floor Coatings Are Durable
Durability is one of the most essential elements for aerospace and aviation flooring. Workspaces and hangars can have extremely heavy loads and equipment parts. Additionally, the flooring has to support the weight and movement of aircraft parts and other aerospace machinery. Even small airplanes can wear down an under-protected floor. Once cured, aircraft hangar epoxy flooring systems can stand up to the high traffic, heavy loads, and unpredictable environmental factors that cause excessive wear.
Hangar Epoxy Flooring Is Cleanable
Across different industries, resins and industrial epoxies are used to create cleanable surfaces. Here, installation makes all the difference. FOD and general debris are a safety hazard to aircraft and aerospace equipment. While it may be tempting to apply concrete epoxy yourself, this is a task best left to experienced professionals to prevent premature flaking or deterioration in the coating.
Aircraft Flooring That Is Chemical-Resistant
Working with chemicals, Skydrol, oil, and other substances can create messy areas. Spills happen, so it’s better to be more prepared than not. Epoxy and polyurethane have chemical resistance, decreasing the chances of harmful reactions to substances. This benefit is lost without a seamless protective surface.
Make Your Hangar Floor Water Resistant
Water is a seemingly innocent substance but has the ability to cause damage to building structures and equipment. Industrial resin floor coatings create a water resistant surface that helps support the facility’s foundation.
Resin Floor Coatings Can Be Made Slip Resistant
Anti-slip resin floor coatings are well suited for hangar and aerospace facility flooring. Light aggregate can be added to both epoxy and urethane sealers to add texture. The texture adds grip to the floor, making it more slip-resistant and, consequently, safer for wheels to sit on. This safety feature makes resin floor coatings ideal for high traffic commercial and industrial areas where falls may be costly.
Adhere to Safety Guidelines for Aerospace and Hangar Floor Markings
Keeping employees safe is a top priority in any workspace, and epoxy floor coatings with strategically-placed safety markings can help make that happen. Bright yellow, red, or white markers create an easily recognizable warning system, so everyone knows which areas are safe. With proper care and maintenance, industrial-strength 5S systems can last for many years.
Equally Attractive and High-Performing Results
Simply put, industrial floor coatings create beautiful results. The versatility of resin coating finishes combined with the ability to select colors that match your hangar floor or space and the capability of an experienced crew can produce equally high-performing and visually stunning flooring.
