|Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to know about surface preparation
before applying a coating to a floor?
This is a topic too large to cover here but very important and
usually the key to the success of any coating application. Normally
the surface needs to be clean and dry and have a surface profile
(roughness) suitable to provide sufficient adhesion. Other
factors of concern include: water vapor transmission (concrete),
the presences of old sealers, coatings or other contaminants on
the surface, surface pH (fresh concrete) and the general condition
of the floor.
I have seen a coating used at Sea World and
other parks on their show tanks for dolphins and killer whales. Does
Epmar make a coating like this?
Yes and chances are that you were looking at one of our coatings! EPMAR
makes a high performance epoxy coating called SS1500 RFQS that
has been used in marine parks, zoos and aquaculture facilities
throughout the world for over 30 years. The coating is safe
for contact with all marine life, resists the oils and fats from
marine mammals, does not support bacterial growth and stands up
well to salt water, chlorine and ozone used in water treatment.
