Strength Meets Style with Epoxy

Epoxy flooring comes in a variety of systems, each designed for a specific application and purpose.

In spaces with low or pedestrian traffic, such as warehouses or factories, epoxy roller coats, typically ranging from 250-350 microns in thickness, are commonly utilized. For environments experiencing forklift traffic, such as packaging facilities or automotive service centers, a tougher, self-leveling epoxy that is 1-3mm thick is preferred. In settings where harsh chemicals are present, epoxy screeds of 6-10mm are often used due to their high chemical resistance. Whatever your requirements, we offer an epoxy flooring option that will meet your needs precisely.

Preparation of Existing Floors

Preparing existing floors for an epoxy coating is a labor-intensive and meticulous task.

Filling in cracks and ensuring the concrete surface is clean and devoid of any substances like grease or oil is essential before applying the epoxy. Typically, cleaning the concrete floors may need several attempts to achieve the necessary cleanliness. Although this extensive preparation might seem burdensome, the long-term advantages make it worthwhile.

Besides getting the concrete ready, the application of the epoxy coating itself is a lengthy process. It requires several days to dry adequately, and it’s crucial that each coat of epoxy is completely dry before applying the next one.

Advantages of Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy floor coatings enhance the durability and longevity of concrete surfaces. They shield the concrete from moisture, stains, grease, and cracks, which ultimately reduces cleaning and maintenance expenses over time, all while being cost-effective for the level of protection they offer.

Epoxy coatings outlast many other flooring types. With correct installation, they can remain intact for decades without showing signs of cracking or peeling. This blend of durability and longevity makes them a favored option in commercial and industrial settings.

Epoxy coatings are adaptable and can be customized to include properties like non-skid, non-slip, chemical resistance, and anti-static features as needed. It’s crucial to discuss your specific needs with an epoxy flooring specialist to ensure the right type of coating is applied.
