Understanding What Epoxy Flooring Is
Epoxy floor surfaces are concrete floors that have an epoxy coat applied on the surface. These may also be referred to as polymer floors or seamless floors. They have either clear or colored, opaque finishes and are typically used instead of concrete flooring sealant applications. Here are some features of this flooring:
- These floor finishes are extremely versatile and are used in industrial, commercial as well as residential settings.
- Self-leveling epoxy floor finishes are generally used for coating concrete floors that are chipped/flaked and require resurfacing.
- Ideal for high-traffic areas.
- It’s best not to use epoxy floors in below grade areas where there are chances standing water.
Types of Epoxy Floors
Epoxy flooring is a common term used for floors with different finishes such as:
- Troweled polymer floor-systems – These are made from a combination of polymer and silicon aggregate and are a form of epoxy flooring that are ideal for industrial and heavy commercial applications.
- Thin mil flooring – It is great for garages and is very similar to concrete sealers.
- Quartz Broadcast Flooring – This is composed of miniature bits of polymer and quartz. This adds a lot of color to your floor.
- Light duty epoxy floor applications – If you want an epoxy floor for general home use, you can opt for this particular surfacing. It can be applied even on concrete, brick or natural stone floors.
Benefits of Epoxy Flooring
- Suitable for indoor and outdoor applications
- Can be used for garages, basements and other similar areas as well as areas like driveways, pathways, entranceways etc.
- Chemical spill-resistant
- Tire mark and scuff resistant
- Non-slip and durable
- Stain-resistant and dust-resistant
In addition, these floors are easy to maintain, reflect natural and artificial light and are available in a range of colors and you don’t have to worry about peeling or cracking.
Some Limitations of Epoxy Floor Applications
- Not to be used on any vertical surfaces, wood or metal
- Shouldn’t be used in spaces where there is a possibility of standing water
- If your basement has very high moisture levels, its best to avoid getting an epoxy coating for the floor there.
