Strong protection for the floor

VESTAMIN® IPD enables the formulation of high performance epoxy based floor coating systems.

Without question, floors have the hardest job in a building. In residential buildings they must carry the weight of walls, people, furnitures. In industrial buildings they also serve to anchor machines, are transport routes or storage areas. If the floor can’t handle the stress, danger lies ahead. For instance, let’s take a warehouse, where lift trucks, forklifts and steel containers demand everything from the floor. Here, an appropriate flooring system that protects the concrete from damage is the be-all and end-all. Developers of warehouses or other buildings which are subjected to heavy load are mostly aware of the situation when construction began.

So in order to withstand extreme stress levels and to meet the different requirements, the use of high performance flooring systems are of great significance in the building and construction industry. Here, high-quality floor coating systems based on epoxy resins have proven their value. Epoxy flooring is known for its durability and its high resistance against wear and tear and chemical attacks. You can run on it, drive on it, store heavy equipment on it, you can even spill acids and alkalis on it without damaging the floor.

For the construction of high performance epoxy floor coatings, Evonik and its innovative strength in 60 years of isophorone chemistry comes into play: With isophorondiamin (IPD)-based products of the VESTAMIN® line, Evonik's Crosslinkers Business Line created the suitable “ingredient” for the formulation of superior epoxy based floorings. Floor coating systems based on VESTAMIN® IPD offer an optimum of prevention against chemical attacks from aqueous acids and alkalis, oils and grease, fuels and solvents, as well as from other corrosive elements – because chemical attacks can destroy floors quickly. The use of the product improves wear resistance and ensures a long service life, also when subjected to heavy mechanical and chemical loads.
