This system offers basic protection for a variety of floors. Ideal for applications with light to moderate foot traffic with the occasional push cart. Available color combinations allow for safety contrast designs and striping. Available in high gloss or satin. Film thickness ranges from 8 mills to 20 mils.
A wide variety of flake colors and sizes provides endless design possibilities, making this versatile floor coating system very popular. The flakes provide a varied appearance that not only offers a distinctive look, but can also hide many pre-existing imperfections in the floor. Most Flake Broadcast floors offer moderate slip resistance, and can be ordered in formulations to meet the specific needs of the application. The flake is ordered separately, per specification. Film thickness averages 50 mils.
Combining durability with aesthetics, this system is ideal for light-use applications where an attractive finish is desired. The small speckle design offers a clean, understated look that works well in office, retail, commercial and institutional settings. It's typically applied with a satin finish, though gloss finishes are offered in some system formulations. Film thickness ranges from 15 to 25 mils.
Some concrete floors have to take serious punishment, while providing durability and performance. WearCOAT Sand Broadcast and Double Sand Broadcast floor systems are designed for those environments. These systems are formulated to protect concrete from blunt-force impact like dropped tools and heavy wheeled traffic, while providing a slip-resistant finish. The heavy aggregate loading of these systems allows impact loads to distribute laterally instead of directly to the concrete, reducing chips and spalls. Sand and pigment are specified separately, per the application requirements.
When it comes to protecting concrete floors, WearCOAT® Broadcast Quartz is the complete package: long-lasting durability, impact resistance, anti-slip textured surface, and a variety of unique color options. The coating systems are formulated for environments where trucks, aircraft and other heavy wheeled traffic is common, and where tools and other equipment are dropped or dragged on the floor. The heavy aggregate loading of these systems allows impact loads to distribute laterally instead of directly to the concrete, reducing chips and spalls. Certain formulations are also made to withstand oils, chemicals and cleaning agents. Nominal thickness of 1/8″
For floors that need a truly distinctive, architectural finish, WearCOAT® Metallic Floor Systems are the perfect coating. Offering a unique, variegated/marbled look, these systems provide an exciting metallic luster to most any concrete floor. With proper application, these systems can even work well with concrete that's not in optimum condition, or that are unable to accept stain or polishing evenly. Thickness ranges from 25-30 mils.
Specifically formulated for floors where maximum slip-resistance is required, WearCOAT® Safety Grip Systems also provide extraordinary wear resistance. Multiple grades provide varying levels from barefoot traffic to aircraft carrier decks. There is a broad range of thickness in the coatings peaks and valleys, controlled by application technique and product selection. Average thickness ranges from 15 mils to 1/16″

The midcoats and topcoats are where the rubber meets the road. Or more accurately, where the rubber, foot traffic, chemicals, dropped tools and UV light meet the concrete.
Coatings for Industry offers a variety of midcoat and topcoat formulations to meet a variety of application needs. Including low odor and quick return to service, resistance to abrasion, chemicals and UV exposure, and gloss or satin finishes. And multiple combinations of each. Coatings For Industry offers midcoats and topcoats for every application and every need. For help choosing the right primer, contact us.
Before applying a coating on existing concrete, it is often necessary to repair it. WearCOAT® Surface Repair systems are formulated to repair everything from light damage to thermal shock to heavily damaged floors. Depending on the needs of the project, the surface repair systems result in floors that withstand impact, moisture and even heavy loads. Thickness ranges from 1/16″ to 3/8″
Every concrete coating system starts with the primer. The right primer is crucial to ensure the coating system's performance and durability. Which primer is right depends on the application environment, the condition of the concrete, and several other factors.
Graffiti is an ongoing challenge to municipalities globally. While difficult to stop such “tagging," CFI offers a highly effective coating system that works on both concrete and steel structures that eliminated the need for re-paint after cleaning.
The U-111 topcoat is virtually impervious to leaving any image behind after cleaning. This glossy topcoat is available in both standard and custom colors and may be hand-cleaned or power-washed with the most stringent cleaners or solvents - even MEK - without damaging its surface.
This system was specified and well-proven for years on New York City's subway cars. While neither they nor you may be able to stop graffiti painters, this CFI system helped keep them from expensive re-painting after removing the unwanted tag.
With its combination of resistance to virtually any cleaner or chemical used to remove spray paint along with superb color and gloss retention, CFI's U-104 / U-111 combination provides outstanding long-term results for any building or structure. Learn more about anti-graffiti options in the PDF.
Best suited to applications subject to spills and splashes of acids and bases, epoxy novolacs offer enhanced resistance to chemicals. Offered in a high performance 100% solids formulation with zero V.O.C., low odor, and a high-build finish, as well as a polyamide epoxy formulation for general industrial use in aggressive environments.
Polyamide epoxies are versatile systems that may be used as a primer, intermediate, or topcoat for general industrial use where extreme performance is not necessary. They are surface tolerant, easy to apply, and provide excellent adhesion, making surface preparation easier.
Moisture cured urethanes provide a quick drying, tough, chemical resistant coating with excellent adhesion. When filled with aluminum flake, they can be applied over previously rusted surfaces with minimal cleaning and preparation. Zinc rich formulations provide galvanic protection to steel and are easily applied in the field.
Every coating, every job requires a primer. It's the coating that offers primary protection of the substrate and provides optimal adhesion for subsequent coating applications.
CFI manufactures urethane and epoxy primers for concrete and steel with differing pigments to promote adhesion and prevent degradation and attack.
CFI U-Series™ urethane finishes are proven products over decades of use. Highly resistant to harsh chemicals, solvents, abrasion and marking. All are highly UV-resistant. CFI offers an array of characteristics in its urethane products. An example is U-111, an ideal coating that resists virtually all harsh solvents when cleaning graffiti on either concrete or steel without affecting the original gloss or color. Explore these topcoats to find the one that meets your needs.
A single-component, aluminum-filled, moisture-cured urethane, U-104 excels at protecting steel and other substrates from corrosion, even over pre-rusted surfaces. Because it bonds and encapsulates the substrate, it may not require aggregate blasting for surface preparation. It cures fast, easily allowing two coats in one day. With two or three coats, it can be used as its own topcoat, or for color, gloss and longest-lasting effectiveness, apply one of CFI's topcoats.
