What Is Epoxy Flooring?
Epoxy flooring is a tough surface covering that’s applied as a liquid compound. The epoxy consists of two synthetic products – a resin and a hardener. Once mixed together, these react to create a solid, durable floor covering.
What Types Of Epoxy Flooring Are There?
There are half-a-dozen or so different chemical compounds that are used to make epoxy flooring. Each has slightly different characteristics. For example, Aliphatic epoxy resins are extremely weather-resistant, whereas Novolac resins don’t produce VOCs. As part of our service, we will recommend an epoxy flooring system that’s designed to meet your operational requirements.
What Are The Benefits Of Epoxy Flooring?
Some of the benefits of epoxy flooring include:
If correctly applied, an epoxy floor will last literally decades, even in challenging environments.
Not only does the epoxy cure to create a very hard floor covering that won’t deteriorate easily, even under heavy traffic, but epoxy is also waterproof, resistant to UV deterioration, immune to temperature changes, resistant to biological contaminants and resistant to oil and most common chemicals.
If chemical spills are likely, let us know and we will select a suitable flooring option.
Epoxy flooring is fast to apply, which ensures labour costs are cut to a minimum. This ensures epoxy flooring is one of the most economical options on the market.
Fast Cure Times
Modern epoxy has been designed to cure fast. Although it usually takes a few days for full curing, many floors can be safely walked on just a few hours after application. If you’re looking for flooring that can be applied with minimal disruption and downtime, epoxy resin ticks the boxes.
Primarily used to protect concrete, epoxy flooring can be used on damp floors, uneven floors and floors that have an awkward shape that makes flooring a challenge.
Additives such as quartz ensure that if required, epoxy resin can be coloured to provide an attractive finish.
Is Epoxy Flooring Different To Epoxy Coating?
The same products may be used for both flooring and coating. The difference is that flooring will be 2mm thick or more. A coating is typically less than 2mm thick.
How Long Does Epoxy Flooring Take To Cure?
The flooring can usually be walked on after just a few hours. The full curing process will take several days. Ask for details of our fast-curing epoxy options!
Can Epoxy Flooring Solve A Damp Problem?
Epoxy flooring is waterproof, but won’t stop the underlying source of the damp. If your concrete floor is damp, epoxy prevents interior evaporation, but the concrete will remain damp until the source of the dampness is located and eliminated.
