How-to Advice from Durall Experts


Color-coded epoxy floors make the job simple

Language is no problem when color-coded floor markings make the job as simple as matching colors. Mistakes are all too easy to make, anyway, and language problems just compound them. Now that we know how to get colored epoxy floor coatings down to stay, why not take advantage of them? Color coding pallet positions to correspond to color-coded conveyor belts is one way. Items coming off the yellow conveyor go to pallets on the yellow positions. Blue conveyor items go to blue conveyor pallet positions. Or you can mark red spaces for fire equipment and hose outlets, blue markings for water lines, and white markings for electrical panels and outlets. Why not a yellow path for traffic lanes rather than small taped lines? Following the yellow brick road worked for Dorothy and it can work for you.

During application of a second or third layer of floor coating, use blue tape to mark out the floor pattern. Next choose from over 20 colors to help keep things on track and improve morale. A personally customized floor is easily created by combining a choice of colors, colored chips, and even glitter options.

Other looks available include granite, tile, and slate. Logos, stripes and "yellow brick roads" are sometimes added to the floors of printers, manufacturers, restaurants, "collector cars" garages, basements, and even food processing plants. The finish can be gloss, flat, or satin. Additionally, the floors may be skid-resistant, like emery paper, yet still easy to sweep or squeegee.

Epoxy flooring goes on at the job site and requires no seams. With no breaks in the surface, the floor coating becomes a continuous membrane that seals what is above from what is below. Mold, mildew, and other contaminants cannot penetrate the epoxy membrane and wash off easily.
