Epoxy floor ing is one of the coatings that have very high quality. These types of floor coverings are able to maintain their strength and durability for several years if they are implemented correctly and comply with all operational principles. It doesn’t matter where you use them. Industrial sectors, parking lots, sports halls and even houses all exert a kind of physical stress on epoxy flooring surfaces. What causes damage and the need to repair the epoxy floor is, first of all, the failure to implement the standard of the floor, and secondly, the passing of several years of using the epoxy floor or its oldness.
One of the most common problems with epoxy flooring is peeling. Peeling flooring creates an uneven, unprofessional looking surface that may also damage the underlying concrete floor. Epoxy floors can peel for many reasons, some of which are related to environmental conditions, such as high or low air temperatures, as well as high humidity. Always the combination of resin and hardener (or hardener) needs the right conditions to set. If there is a lot of humidity in your area, it can affect your epoxy layer from the concrete floor below. Moisture build-up can cause a variety of problems, including permanent scaling.
• If your concrete floor has seen some wear and tear, installing an epoxy floor coating may seem like an easy way to cover stains and help preserve the concrete. However, these stains may contain oils and chemicals that rise to the surface after the epoxy floor is installed. These chemicals and oils leach out of the concrete, under-cover pool, and cause bubbles and scaling.
• While it’s important to properly remove stains and oils from the concrete surface, it’s also important to wipe off the cleaning agents you use. These cleaners may contain water and chemicals that leave a residue and have the same effect as stains – the epoxy floor bubbles and peeling after installation.
• Concrete floors contain a lot of water, which is released months after the water is poured. If epoxy flooring is installed on concrete that does not have adequate curing time, the flooring will not adhere well to the concrete. And as mentioned before, if the epoxy can’t bond well enough to the concrete, it will bubble and peeling.
Peeling epoxy flooring usually occurs due to wear and tear or aging of the flooring. Floor coverings that have been in use for several years are naturally past their expiration date and need to be repaired and modified. Peeling flooring can completely destroy the appearance of the environment, so it is suggested to fix such defects immediately. To repair and restore the peeling epoxy floor, the first step is to completely perform a basic peeling.
At this stage, try to completely remove all the peeling colors from the work surface. If the resistance of worn colors is high, you can also use color cleaners, which are usually acidic. After performing the cleaning procedures, start the implementation of the new layer of flooring.
