If you have never heard of epoxy flooring before, the easiest definition of epoxy flooring is this: epoxy flooring is essentially a surface hardening flooring system which is applied either two millimeters or even more in-depth to your concrete floor. Typically it is applied in multiple successive layers to create a smooth and relatively solid surface.
Some of the most popular uses for epoxy flooring are: building construction and decorative applications. Concrete floors have been in wide use since the dawn of industrialization; however with the development of new technology and materials such as polyurethane, concrete has found itself falling behind in terms of durability and strength. With the development of epoxy flooring systems, concrete can now be made stronger, durable and resistant to both internal and external conditions, which in turn gives it a better lifespan than many other man-made materials. Its durability makes it ideal for indoor and outdoor use, and its anti-static properties make it ideal for use in high traffic areas.
An epoxy coating can range from a single, light layer to a multi-layer system which can significantly improve the aesthetic appearance of the floor, whilst also protecting the concrete from external elements such as moisture, temperature fluctuations and chemicals in the air. Its non-skid nature means that it is also ideal for application on swimming pools. Epoxy floor systems are available in a range of colours and finishes, which allows you to choose a finish that complements your existing decor. The most popular types of epoxy flooring systems tend to be matt and dull in colour but there are also systems available in various colours such as green, blue, white and pink. The wide range of colours available means that they are perfect for almost any interior design situation.
