Durable Chemical Resistant Coatings
Chemical-resistant coatings are an excellent way to protect concrete and steel from damage by acids and chemicals. These heavy duty coatings are available in a variety of colors and can add to the aesthetic of a workplace. They are typically more expensive than standard concrete coatings but often the peace of mind and added durability makes them well worth the extra cost.
The choice of a chemical resistant coating is determined by many factors such as the type and amount of the chemical(s) being exposed, whether it will be a contact or immersion exposure and if the coating needs to be able to withstand a certain temperature range. The substrate, whether it be metal or concrete also has a big impact on which coating is best for the job.

Fluoropolymer Coatings – Known for their non stick qualities (like Teflon and Xylan) these coatings are great for areas where a low coefficient of friction is required and can withstand very high temperatures. These coatings can be used for lining tanks, ductwork and secondary containment and perform well in immersion service for most chemicals such as concentrated sulfuric, nitric, hydrochloric acid and phosphoric acid.
