Floor coatings are used for many purposes in commercial facilities.   Whether retail, warehouse, production or service related, floor coatings can provide:

  •        A decorative finish
  •        A cleanable finish
  •        A protective barrier against chemical attack
  •        A protective film against abuse and surface deterioration
  •        A seal against leakage or seepage of water

Stronghold Floors has released a new eBook to assist property owners, facilities managers and others concerned with the look, performance and maintenance of their commercial facility’s concrete floors.

This new eBook is broken into 3 main sections; each is described below.

  • Maintainability
  • Texture
