What is epoxy flooring?

Epoxy flooring is a unique flooring type that consists of a polymer resin and hardener compound combined together. This mixture then bonds with the surface of the concrete subfloor to create a highly durable plastic surface. This makes epoxy a popular flooring choice for a wide range of industries, including industrial settings like warehouses and factories, as well as hygienic ones such as kitchens and hospitals.

The benefits of epoxy flooring

Epoxy flooring has gained popularity over the years for a number of reasons:

  • High heat resistance
  • Available in a wide range of colours
  • Decorative effects, like marbling, can be achieved
  • Available with anti-slip properties
  • Chemical resistant
  • Easy to maintain
  • Self-levelling
  • Quick to dry
  • Relatively inexpensive

The downsides of epoxy flooring

Whilst there aren’t many downsides to epoxy flooring, there are some to consider prior to installation:

  • Typically, only lasts up to 10 years before recoating is required
  • Preparation prior to installation can be time consuming
  • Without underfloor heating, they can feel cold
  • Can be slippery without the right additive
  • Strong chemical smell when wet
Whilst epoxy floors may not have the same lifespan of say, solid marble or finished concrete, initial installation costs are much cheaper. The reduced cost per square metre more than makes up for the fact that more regular replacement may be necessary if your premises experiences a high volume of traffic.
