What is epoxy flooring?
Epoxy flooring features a mix of polymer resins and hardeners that chemically bond together to create a rigid floor coating. With a smooth and shiny finish, clear epoxy looks similar to polished concrete. It is also available in a range of solid colours to suit various industries.
For epoxy flooring with additional interest, we also offer vinyl flake flooring. It has all of the benefits of standard epoxy, with multi-coloured chips in the mixture to create a decorative finish.
Call us to find out if epoxy flooring is right for you.
We work with you to design epoxy floors to meet your needs.
After deciding epoxy flooring is the best approach for your home, commercial or industrial premises, we will confirm the appearance you are wanting to achieve from options of clear finishes to a variety of colours.
We will then prepare the surface by completing any concrete repairs and diamond grinding the concrete to a smooth clean finish in readiness for application of the epoxy.
Epoxy resin is then mixed with a hardener and applied to your floor. The reaction of the resin and the curative create a coating that is both strong and durable.
