What is an epoxy floor?
An epoxy coating is a liquid resin combined with a hardening agent, applied in a variety of thicknesses over new or existing concrete, to create a decorative finish to the surface. The resin is either clear or very lightly coloured, and is odourless. When it is mixed with the hardener, a chemical reaction begins that transforms the resin into a strong, plastic-like surface.
While it is hardening, epoxy is extremely adhesive, so it securely bonds to the surface. After hardening, the seamless floor becomes strong, durable and chemically resistant.
You can use an epoxy coating in a retail outlet, warehouse, office, living area, rumpus room, kitchen or your garage. An epoxy floor is extremely hard wearing and looks great. It is perfect for high traffic and vehicle areas and there are not many places it’s not suitable.
An epoxy floor is therefore perfect for a variety of residential, commercial and industrial purposes.
