Industry-specific flooring specifications can even be customised to match typical chemical usage; aircraft hangars, for instance, can install flooring that won't be harmed by aviation hydraulic fluid.
Concrete floors that are not protected from corrosive chemicals can deteriorate rapidly. Spills of food and drink in commercial spaces can also damage coatings, so it's not just the harsh chemicals used in heavy industry that can harm concrete floors.

Here are just some of the systems that Flowcrete Australia recommends when chemical resistance is a key flooring requirement.
