Why Epoxy ?
Epoxy flooring is one of the toughest and most durable finishes you can have. Epoxy terminology refers to the materials used and the application process. Epoxy provides good aesthetics for the floor, will protect it by resisting considerable wear and tear. Unfortunately, improper treatment can impact the appearance and texture of your floors. Epoxy or resin is a tricky material if you don’t have professional experience applying it.
Epoxy floors are used by many commercial areas and residential garages, patios & living areas.
- Requires little to no maintenance
- Resistant to oil and water stains
- UV fading resistant
- Protects concrete from chipping, peeling; damage
- Easy to maintain clean inside outdoors
- Can be anti-slip as required.
- Creates a high-gloss surface.
It is important to note that there is a difference between epoxy coating and epoxy paint. Epoxy coating floors are highly tolerant of weight and regular usage and for this reason they are a common choice for commercial & high traffic areas. Epoxy coating is made up of a resin component that is mixed with a polyamine hardener. It is then applied under specific temperature and time conditions after it has sufficiently dried.
provides an attractive surface to use inside offices, residential homes and showrooms; is easy to apply and quick drying; can be applied over concrete floors to provide a durable and smooth surface suitable for withstanding heavy loads and continuous traffic (commonly used for garage surfaces); can help prevent chemical breakdowns; can mask off chips and cracks when used in conjunction with repair products.
