Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy is a class of material that is made up of resins and hardeners. The special thing about this mixture is that they combine chemically to form a very hard plastic material, which can be very easily used for purposes such as flooring. The material thus obtained is not only hard but also chemically inert. This means that it can be used in industrial settings. If you own or manage an industrial unit then you should definitely give epoxy flooring a chance. There are many different kinds of epoxy floorings available in the market.

Self-levelling epoxy floors are used mainly for repair purposes. They are available in a variety of colours and shades and hence they can gel very well with the existing floor. They are very smooth in finish, hard in texture and chemically inert. These properties make it a perfect flooring material. The only limitation with self-levelling systems is that they do not have very high load bearing capacity. Due to this, they cannot be used at places where heavy machines are installed. However they can be very easily used for garage epoxy flooring. Heavy loads can be borne by high end epoxy systems such as the epoxy mortar systems. Mortar epoxy systems are the toughest epoxy systems. They can be used at places where heavy machines are to be installed. There are certain other high end epoxy systems such as the quartz filled epoxy systems and anti-static epoxy systems.

Using epoxy floors offers a lot of advantages over other types of floors. The biggest advantage is the strength that they offer. Epoxy floors are much stronger than plain concrete floors. They are not only string but also very smooth. This means that they offer a superior finish than concrete at only a slightly high price. Since they are very smooth, they are very easy to clean. They do not get oily or stained easily, thus they have become a highly sought after flooring material.

Epoxy floors are also very chemically inert. This makes them suitable for usage in chemical and food plants. Since they do not get oily, they are very safe also. American Industrial Association recommends them as the number one material for use in industrial flooring. Further, they can also be used in home at places like garage and exterior landscape. Whatever may be the use that you put them into, they will turn out to be a good choice.
