Many businesses, offices, restaurants, warehouses, hospitals, and residences choose Epoxy Flooring as their go-to choice for flooring. Epoxy floors are durable and strong, easy to keep clean and maintain and beautiful. In residential and commercial applications, an epoxy floor adds a wow factor, giving that garage floor or showroom a “look at me” effect.
Epoxy is a thermosetting resin made up of two components -; hardener and resin. The difference between an epoxy-coated floor and an epoxy floor is determined by thickness. An epoxy floor consists of several layers of epoxy applied to a thickness of at least 2 millimeters. A depth less than two millimeters is considered a coating. The epoxy is formed when the two components are combined, creating an exothermic reaction and thus forming the rigid plastic material. As the epoxy cures, it forms an intense bond with the substrate, resulting in a floor strong enough to stand up to the toughest conditions.
