Protect Your Floors in Battery Charging/Storage Areas
By Rick Schott Circle the author on Google+
If you have a fleet of battery powered Material Handling Equipment or Floor Cleaning Equipment you probably know that acid spills are inevitable. Batteries leak, technicians overfill cells, and sometimes acid spills out due to the charging process.
Acid that leaks onto an unprotected floor usually soaks in and dries quickly before anyone can neutralize the spill and clean it up. The results of the spill can quickly become an expensive problem. The top layer of the concrete dissolves exposing the porous layer of concrete and aggregate. This part of the floor is even more absorbent than the original concrete. This sub-layer of concrete is also very soft and susceptible to wear.
Investing early in an acid resistant coating for your floor will save you thousands of dollars in the long run. It will also give your facility a safe and professional appearance.
Some of the advantages to coating your battery charging area are:
**Protects concrete from acid spills and subsequent erosion
**Resists acids, including 70% sulfuric acid
**Designates battery area from other areas of facility
**Safe, non-slip surface
**Seamless, monolithic application
**Excellent impact and abrasion resistance
**Long lasting and durable
**Easy to maintain
