Floor Epoxy


Floor Epoxy

Epoxy flooring is a type of synthetic resin floor system that is laid on top of concrete substrates as a form of protection and decoration. The systems can comprise of several layers of thermosetting resin that are coated, trowelled or poured, and generally applied onto a concrete substrate. Once the resin layers completely cure, the floor system forms a strong and permanent bond, acting as an impervious and decorative barrier to protect the substrate.

Epoxy flooring provides a colourful, decorative, durable and seamless flooring surface. This type of flooring is created with a mix of coloured epoxy and selected aggregates (such as marble, mother of pearl, glass, granite, etc). After setting the mixture, the flooring is ground and polished, exposing the aggregate and delivering a smooth, decorative and hard-wearing floor finish. Epoxy floors are not just highly decorative and very durable, they only require simple maintenance and have an outstanding life expectancy (upwards of 40 years). This floor system is ideal for large commercial venues thanks to its aesthetics, durability and lifespan.

Benefits and Advantages of Epoxy Flooring

Let’s explore the specific benefits and advantages of epoxy flooring. Epoxy flooring has several advantages and benefits compared to other floor coverings such as vinyl, tiles or carpet.

  • Aesthetics

    Epoxy flooring can be applied as a seamless, easy-to-clean floor surface with a wide range of customisable colour options, as well as a variety of gloss levels (glossy, satin, matte). Further design options include the addition of coloured microchips and metallic pigment additives.

  • Maintenance

    Since epoxy is a seamless and impervious flooring option, the concrete substrate is protected from chemicals, dirt, liquids and other contaminants. This makes the floors easy to clean and requiring only a scrubber or standard mopping with a general-purpose cleaner – no waxing or buffing is necessary. Epoxy floors do not require much maintenance other than a standard cleaning, making them a great long-term value option.

  • Safety

    One of the lesser-considered advantages of epoxy flooring is its ability to include a non-slip profile by broadcasting sand onto the wet body coat during application. This is an important facet for commercial or industrial spaces as the safety of occupants should always be a primary concern.

  • Durability

    Workloads on epoxy floors can vary from foot traffic to truck and forklift traffic. An industrial flooring option can withstand daily abuse from a wide variety of equipment and manufacturing processes. As an abrasion and chemical-resistant material, epoxy flooring options can meet the durability needs of most industrial manufacturers.

  • Environment Suitability

    As one of the most versatile flooring options, epoxy flooring is great for a variety of environments such as industrial, commercial, medical, food and beverage manufacturing, aviation, recreational, healthcare, transportation, manufacturing, educational, grocery, retail and many more.

  • Green Credentials

    As a world-leading manufacturer of resin flooring, many solutions produced by Flowcrete are formulated to be solvent-free, contain low quantities of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and do not present environmental hazards.
