Epoxy floors are solid concrete floors that are painted with an epoxy coating. Epoxy is a type of thick plastic like polymer material formed by mixing different types of resins and hardeners. It converts from a liquid state to a solid state through a controlled chemical reaction. This chemical reaction turns the liquidepoxy floor coatings into a soloed floor which is tough, durable, waterproof, and chemically resistant. For residential or commercial painting work, please see our painting service page.
Epoxy floor coatings are highly viscous during the conversion from liquid to solid which results in creating a secure bond with both new and old concrete flooring surfaces.
It can be done in two ways.
- Epoxy coating in which a thin layer of epoxy is applied on the concrete floor.
- Epoxy Flooring in which multiple layers of the material are applied.
- Epoxy floors are mechanically strong and chemical resistant and thus have a longer life.

Types of Epoxy Floor Coverings
Epoxy floor coatings are generally categorized by the type of fluid the epoxy is mixed with. The following are the three basic types of epoxy floor coating:
- Solvent-borne epoxy: The epoxy is mixed with a compound called a solvent that dries up and evaporates when the epoxy is applied, leaving a hard epoxy coating on the floor.
- Waterborne epoxy: this type of epoxy is water soluble and uses water as its main carrier. It is relatively easy to apply in thin or thick coats, and it only needs water in order to be cleaned up.
- Solid epoxy: It is pure epoxy with very high viscosity and can be very resourceful and adaptable in its numerous applications. It produces very thick coats of epoxy on the floor.
Apart from these, there are different types of materials and polishing to get various types of floorings including self dispersing epoxy flooring, epoxy terrazzo floors, graveled epoxy floors, etc.
