Do you want to make the interior walls of your building more sustainable? With an epoxy wall coating you not only give a decorative finishing touch, but also create extra properties such as water resistance and good cleanability. In this article we discuss the main professional applications of epoxy wall coatings, informing you exactly whether this coating is suitable for your project.
Buildings with a public function, such as government buildings, are freely accessible to every visitor. In buildings where people walk in and out in large numbers, easy-cleaned floors and walls, due to hygiene regulations are indispensable. Despite special mats at the entrance doors, rain water, mud and sand accidentally splash on the wall more than once. Many wall applications, such as latex paint, are too porous to resist this. Dirt traces straight away into the surface. Dust can be easily removed from Epoxy wall coatings in those circumstances due to their sealing effect.
The same needs play a role in semi-public and private spaces where many people gather, such as concert halls.
In care-related spaces and research facilities, such as clean rooms, operating rooms in hospitals and nursing wards within care homes, a hygienic wall coating is of great importance. In order to prevent germs and/or other forms of contamination from having free play the wall must be in such a condition that allows proper cleaning. (This also applies to the floors, which can also be made antistatic if desired. A requirement if there are measuring and intervention systems in the room.)
Extra care is often taken within these spaces for seamless transitions between the wall and the floor, so that no microbiological hazards can arise in corners, seams and cracks.
In sanitary rooms, ranging from shower rooms in gyms, bathrooms in hospitals and toilet rooms in saunas and swimming pools, it is important that the wall is resistant to moisture, mold and temperature fluctuations.
The same epoxy wall coating is often suitable for the floor, which produces a seamless result.
In rooms with a greater risk of vandalism, such as prisons and detention centers, wall protection for reduced scratch sensitivity is not an unnecessary luxury.
Do you also want to protect your outside walls against vandalism? The permanent anti-graffiti coating from Korthals is the solution for easy graffiti removal. This coating prevents graffiti from adhering to the surface and protects it against UV radiation, dirt, water and green deposits (algae residue).
