With so many companies and industries worldwide still swearing by their epoxy and urethane floor coatings, it almost seems as if these organic compounds are flawless and in no need of replacement.
Epoxy can indeed protect your production floor and keep it from causing undue damage to people and equipment alike, while simultaneously looking good for the prying eyes of potential clients. You can even choose colors and customize your epoxy to reflect the style and orientation of your business, but what is the price of using these ubiquitous volatile materials?
The Harmfulness of Epoxy
While it may be the cheapest and most readily available compound, epoxy does not come without its fair share of harmful side-effects.
Most people argue that the smell can get truly unbearable, but if you’re really using epoxy to cover your floors and protect them from wear and tear of heavy industry or chemicals, both you and your employees will be in harm’s way.
The toxins that epoxy exposes you to will not have you suffer from short-term symptoms only. Yes, there will be nose and throat irritation, annoying you with a running nose and incessant coughing. Shortness of breath can occur just as well, and some employees will be more susceptible to these symptoms as they’re inhaling vaporized toxins and chemicals.
However, more severe conditions may develop in the long run, including (but not limited to) asthma, heart disease, and even cancer. And that is just considering your employees who work in warehouses or handling chemicals. When you’re in the food business or any other industry that involves products to be consumed by people, such as cannabis-based products for medical purposes, you owe it not just to your employees, but also to your customers, to avoid poisoning them with harmful toxins that can seep into literally anything.
