Hi kartik,

 

I presume MS = mild steel

 

Sounds like an opportunity for corrosion ?

 

I'm curious why you would like a steel floor ?

Actually I saw this flooring in one of the facility. Cemented floor tends to disrupt easily due to the usage of forklift truck and heavy drums. Can you please suggest some better flooring option?

IIRC there is cement and then there is quality cement. :smile:

 

Many plate/air blast freezers are mounted on cement floors.

 

Epoxy ?

 

IMEX tiles require a lot of maintenance. But it may depend on the specific material.

 

There are some super-loadable surfaces but they can cost a small fortune.

 

It's not just the surface. It's also what may be underneath it.

Sir, movement of trolley's and forklift trucks makes it hard for the company to maintain the integrity of cemented or epoxy coated cemented floor.  Epoxy coating generally peels up due to the heavy work and if there is some product spillage, its hard to clean and maintain. so, can MS be used a flooring option if it is maintained properly?

Hi kartik,

Go with QUALITY cement.  All flooring will degrade over time with load, traffic, and chemical usage.  I've had experience with tiles, epoxy, composite, cement, and even mild steel flooring.

 

The mild steel was the worst.  Not only does it corrode, it warps and you can get up with water trapped underneath the steel.  Don't go there....that is just asking for heaps and heaps of trouble in the long run.

 

Epoxy or composite can be good, but yes it can peel up in spots over time.  However, these are more easily repaired than other materials.  Cost can get up there though....
