Epoxy is a material that acts as a sealant for concrete floors. Epoxy coatings can be used on floors for commercial buildings, walkways, even on walls or ceilings, but are most commonly on garage floors. Besides being one of the strongest types of floor coatings out there, epoxy flooring has other properties that make it a popular flooring option for builders and development owners. Here are 3 uses for epoxy flooring.
Factories, Warehouses, Garages, Hallways & Porches
One of the main reasons epoxy flooring is frequently used in garages (and within the automotive industry) is because of its ability to withstand a large variety of substances. Epoxy is resistant to a wide range of substances including water, oil, gasoline, transmission fluid, bleach, cleaners, and a variety of other chemicals. It also offers one of the strongest coatings available for concrete surfaces; it resists abuse from industrial applications.
Hospitals, Clinics & Restrooms
Epoxy floors are an ideal option for places where cleanliness is critical. Epoxy floors are highly resistant to just about everything including bacteria and germs. Epoxy floors are very easy to clean and sanitize because of this reason. A floor coated with epoxy can also withstand heavy traffic and doesn’t require regular maintenance except for sweeping and mopping.
Spaces That Need to Meet Safety and Environmental Standards
Epoxy floor coating meets a variety of safety and environmental standards. They are formulated to provide texture for anti-skid surfaces suitable for work environments and are not flammable and free of solvents, making them a great choice for many spaces. Epoxy coatings can be used both indoors and outdoors, are virtually odor-free and contain low VOCs.
