THE EPIC® SOLUTION

for K-12, Universities, Daycare Centers, & Religious Organizations

Making the most of the budget is always a top priority in the education industry. Unfortunately, the quality of floor care can be suffer if there is a lack of financial resources allocated for this important part of building maintenance. Fortunately, Ultra Durable Technologies provides a more affordable alternative to traditional acrylic wax finishes for the floors of K-12 schools, universities, daycare centers, and religious organizations.

PROMOTION OF HEALTH & SAFETY

Indoor Air Quality

EPIC contains low levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), so it is safe for use even in occupied spaces.  Also, the harmful method of buffing is no longer needed to maintain EPIC floors.

The buffing process forces chemicals, dust particles, viruses, and bacteria to be propelled into the air from the floor. These airborne contaminants pose a health threat to all who enter the facility, especially during the current COVID pandemic. Thankfully, EPIC’s unique formula never needs to be buffed, and as a result, it contributes to healthier indoor air quality (IAQ).

Slips, Trips and Falls

EPIC promotes a healthy and safe environment by providing slip resistance. Specifically, EPIC significantly increases abrasion resistance and traction when combined with Ultra Grip additives. It meets ADA and OSHA SCOF non-slip traction recommendations, ensuring the safety of students even when water or snow gets tracked in from outside.

FIT FOR ALL FLOOR TYPES, EVEN TILE AND GROUT

EPIC restores and prolongs the lifespan of “no-wax” floors and all other floor types such as VCT, LVT, sheet vinyl, linoleum, rubber, tile & grout, and even concrete and terrazzo.

Tile and grout surfaces especially can be a breeding ground for bacteria and can easily become very difficult to clean. Luckily, the EPIC Tile & Grout system enhances the appearance of grouted surfaces while protecting against moisture and odor-causing bacteria.

EPIC LASTS 3-5 Years or more!

UDT values innovation and is passionate about delivering consistent and reliable products. Because the surfaces in educational facilities undergo a high degree of wear and tear from chairs, desks, and foot traffic, it is necessary to coat them with a durable and safe floor finish.

EPIC is a one-coat, water-based urethane finish that eliminates the need for tedious buffing, stripping, and waxing. Routine maintenance only requires an auto scrubber or microfiber mop and gentle cleaner (or plain water). Recoating is only needed every 3-5 years and stripping is not required. By switching to EPIC, you save an ever-increasing amount of time, energy, labor hours, and money on floor care. 

“Our School started using EPIC floor coatings in 2007… Our terrazzo corridors still look great… the coating holds up to salt and sand; and pencil and black boot marks easily wipe off.”

— Bob Zwilling, Maintenance Director, St. Cloud Christian School

EASY TO CLEAN AND SANITIZE

Surfaces finished with EPIC are nonporous and seamless, so they can be easily wiped clean with sanitizer or disinfectant without degrading. EPIC’s nonporous barrier also protects floors from bacterial and viral growth, so a little cleaning goes a long way.

EPIC GLOSS
ENVIRONMENTALLY AND ECONOMICALLY SUSTAINABLE

UDT manufactures products that are better for both the facility budget and the planet. To put things in perspective, over a 10-year period,  2-3 recoats of EPIC would be required versus an average of 20-30 recoats of acrylic. For the recoats, floors can simply be screened (again, stripping is not needed at all). The result of the EPIC program is a lot fewer chemicals contaminating our ecosystem! Plus, because buffing is not needed, facilities save energy and labor costs.

We have found a better way to care for our environment!
