Epoxy Floor Coating
What is an epoxy floor coating?
Epoxy resin is commonly known in the industrial floor sector as a robust and heavy-duty flooring solution, making it a highly suitable and versatile product to be applied for a range of applications. Resins can be combined with a wide selection of materials affecting performance, colour and finish, that bond together to create the desired effect. When the floor coating is fully cured, the resulting product is a durable, rigid epoxy coating with numerous desirable properties such as strength, anti-static qualities and a range of other characteristics.
For these reasons, many people choose to install a professional epoxy resin coating. From clear sealing and protecting the surface from corrosion or decay to providing a highly decorative solution that offers high performance, epoxy floor coatings are a hugely viable option for many business sectors.
What is it used for?
Resin products can be applied to coat the substrate (typically a concrete floor) and provide a robust and durable surface for industrial and commercial sectors alike. For example, for busy manufacturing plants and production lines where there is heavy machinery and ample foot traffic, the correct primer followed by resin coatings can provide an abrasion resistance and low slip resistant industrial floor to ensure personnel safety.
Similarly, in more commercial settings such as public sector buildings and businesses such as hotels and restaurants, the material can be used to provide a stylish decorative finish with fantastic designs, colours, and custom patterns whilst still providing outstanding qualities like enhanced hygiene, low-slip, and chemical resistant floors.

In addition to the unique qualities that our epoxy flooring systems offer business owners, it also has many clear benefits over other traditional flooring types such as wood, vinyl, and tiling. Firstly, it has a longer lifespan compared with other options and will need less frequent repair or replacement, making it a hugely cost-effective investment. It also provides more durability and reliability, handling even the most challenging environments such as aerospace or cleanroom facilities. Finally, it can be installed fast and offers fantastic results from the get-go, including a safe working environment and an appealing floor surface.
How much does it cost?
Preparation and installation costs will depend entirely on the amount of surface area to be covered, the quality of the substrate and how much work will need to be completed to repair this, in addition to the type of resin coatings chosen and the finish you require for your floors. Other factors that can affect cost include the installation of drainage systems, bund walls, expansion joints, and other such features.
