EPOXY WALL COATINGS
Epoxy wall coating systems provide long term protection of masonry block and gypsum-based wall structures from excessive sanitary processes and chemical and bacterial exposure. Commonly used in healthcare, food processing, food and beverage, and medicinal laboratory and clinical testing facilities, epoxy wall coating systems provide a durable and cost-effective alternative to fibre re-inforced panels and other pre-constructed wall coating materials.
CSI is a trained and certified applicator for North America’s most established epoxy wall coating manufacturers and suppliers including BASF, Mapei Canada, Sika Canada, FlowCrete, Rhino Flooring, and Polymer Science to name a few.
Since 2004 our diligence in installing epoxy wall coatings to the manufacturer’s written specifications and instructions has enabled CSI to become an industry leader in Western Canada.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between epoxy wall coating systems and normal paint?
Epoxy wall coating systems are CFIA approved and this is an essential requirement in all food processing facilities. The physical properties and characteristics of epoxy wall coating systems create a durable, hard, seamless, waterproof, abrasion, and bacteria resistant surface that will withstand even the harshest cleaning and sanitizing chemicals and processes.
Epoxy wall coating is typically installed as a three-coat system with an option for a final urethane topcoat for enhanced abrasion, chemical, and UV resistance.
Additionally, the epoxy wall coating system can be reinforced with fiberglass mesh embedded within the epoxy at the time of installation to further strengthen and protect the underlying wall structure.
What decorative options are available?
Just like epoxy floor coating systems, epoxy wall coatings are available in any color. Additionally, , polyester flake chips may be added to epoxy wall coating systems to provide a customized decorative effect designed to meet any architectural aesthetic requirement or décor plan.
CSI uses flake chips from Torginol, North America’s largest supplier of epoxy floor coating ancillary products.
Many industrial, commercial, and institutional settings require heavy-duty epoxy wall systems that can withstand chemical exposure, abrasion, and impact.
Other facilities such as hospitals and food and beverage processing plants need integral seamless finishes and easy-to-clean concrete walls and floors for better germ and pathogen control.
