Best Floor Coating for an Auto Spray Booth

When a local auto repair shop installed a new state of the art spray booth in their shop, they were looking for a flooring solution.  The existing concrete was dirty, had some saw cuts and holes that would hold dirt and make it impossible to clean.  Since the quality of the sprayed finish is really dependent on the quality of the working environment, (the whole point of a spray booth) they were looking for a seamless option, that would reflect light, be easy to clean, and would hold up to chemicals and solvents that would be present in the painting process, and one that could withstand the 150 degree heat used to bake the freshly painted cars.

Right Place, Right Time, Right Product: A Metallic Epoxy Tale
