Floor Finish for Government
THE EPIC® SOLUTION
FOR Government Buildings, Correctional Facilities, & Military Bases
Make a Statement with EPIC Shine
Government facilities are oftentimes heavily occupied spaces. Scratches and scuffs are especially common on the floors of hallways, lobbies, and common areas of these spaces. Over time, this wear and tear from high foot traffic becomes visible and floors lose their shine and look dull. The result is the impression that they are not maintained well. Government service buildings especially are a source of pride for a city, county, state, or country. UDT’s EPIC High-Performance Floor Finish for government buildings yields surfaces that are clean, shiny, and slip resistant. Communities can be proud knowing that their buildings are evidence of the dedication to maintaining the best spaces possible.
CLEAN & FRESH SURFACES
The porosity of acrylic wax makes it a breeding ground for bacteria and other contaminants, which emit foul odors no matter how many times a waxed surface is mopped. EPIC, on the other hand, promotes the health and safety of facilities by providing a non-porous barrier that prevents biofilm from forming, as well as odor-causing agents such as dirt, urine, and bacteria. EPIC keeps spaces smelling fresh and looking their best. UDT’s EPIC Tile and Grout Floor Finish is specifically designed for keeping surfaces with grout lines clean and sparkling.
MINIMAL MAINTENANCE WITH MAXIMIZED RESULTS
EPIC is a water-based urethane finish that eliminates the need for any buffing, stripping, and waxing. Routine cleaning for EPIC only requires an auto scrubber or microfiber mop and gentle detergent (or plain water). One recoat is only needed every 3-5 years in high-traffic areas and can be done in as little as 4 hours, which simplifies maintenance scheduling. Put simply, switching to EPIC saves an ever-increasing amount of time, energy, and money that can be poured into other priorities.
EPIC bonds directly to resilient flooring, tile & grout, terrazzo, and concrete, and it provides extreme chemical and stain resistance. The abrasion resistance of EPIC can even be customized to meet slip-resistance and cleanability standards. By adhering to surfaces and penetrating all gaps to form a seamless membrane, EPIC makes cleaning and sanitizing a breeze.
IMPROVED INDOOR AIR QUALITY (IAQ)
Every time an acrylic-coated floor is buffed, harmful particulates are forced into the air and breathed by building occupants. This poses a health threat because germs are also being stirred off the floors and into the air of frequently occupied spaces. Luckily, switching to EPIC eliminates the methods of buffing and burnishing and therefore improves indoor air quality (IAQ). When we say EPIC doesn’t require ANY buffing, we mean it! Keeping floors clean and shiny does not have to be done at the cost of societal health.
HEALTH & SAFETY FOR EVERY FLOOR TYPE
EPIC offers long-lasting chemical and stain protection and extreme abrasion resistance for every floor type—LVT, VCT, sheet vinyl, linoleum, tile & grout, terrazzo, and c even concrete! To reduce slip risks while still giving floors an attractive appearance, combine EPIC with one of our Ultra Grip levels or Aggregate Additives. Mixing in Ultra Grip or UDT Aggregate adds traction, strength, and beauty.
Terrazzo and concrete are some of the most common floor types used in government buildings. These floor types are typically polished and even waxed with acrylic, which can cause slip hazards. Alternatively, EPIC can be applied directly to these floor types to bring out their natural beauty while protecting them from heavy foot traffic!
