What is epoxy flooring?
Epoxy is a mixture of liquid resin and hardener which we use to cover floors in an industrial environment. When it hardens, it bonds to the base layer, e.g. concrete, and forms a rigid, protective surface that’s strong enough to cope with most service conditions.
How long will an epoxy floor last?
It does depend on the type of floor traffic, how much wear and tear it gets and how well it is maintained, but our epoxy flooring has the potential to last 10-20 years.
What are the benefits of epoxy flooring?
The benefits of epoxy flooring are numerous. It’s a very cost-effective solution that can be applied over the top of your current flooring, including tiles, saving the expense and disruption involved in removing any existing flooring beforehand. It can also be installed quickly, meaning minimal disruption to the business. Epoxy flooring is also hard wearing and durable, and it is resistant to water damage, stains, chemicals, scratches and impacts. It’s hygienic and easy to clean, making it ideal for food preparation areas, pharmaceutical manufacturers and hospitals.
