Commercial Epoxy Floor Coating Advantages
Resinous epoxy coatings offer the following benefits:
- Durability: Commercial epoxy flooring is known for its high durability. It can withstand heavy foot traffic and industrial operations without showing wear and tear.
- Resistance: Epoxy floor coatings resist chemicals, spills, and stains. This is particularly important in commercial environments with substances that could damage a regular floor.
- Easy Maintenance: Epoxy floors are easy to clean and maintain. The smooth and seamless surface allows for efficient cleaning and reduces the time and cost of maintenance.
- Safety: Many epoxy floors resist slippage, temperature fluctuations, and fire. This can contribute to a safer environment in a commercial setting.
- Aesthetics: Epoxy floor coatings can be quite attractive. They have a professional, glossy appearance and can be mixed with various colors and patterns to match the aesthetic of the commercial space.
- Cost-Effective: Epoxy can be more cost-effective than other commercial flooring types. It’s not just the initial installation that’s affordable; the durability and low maintenance requirements mean the long-term costs are also relatively low.
- Longevity: Epoxy floor coatings have a long lifespan compared to many other types of flooring. When properly installed and maintained, they can last for several decades without needing replacement.
- Enhanced Brightness: Due to its glossy surface, epoxy flooring can enhance the brightness in a facility by reflecting light off the floor. This can result in a brighter, more appealing environment and even reduce the need for additional lighting ins some cases.
- Quick Installation: Epoxy floor coatings can be installed relatively quickly, reducing downtime for a business during installation.

Our Epoxy Floor Coating Process
We follow a stringent process to ensure the delivery of high-quality results. Our installation process begins with a thorough inspection of your existing floor. We identify any damage, such as cracks or uneven surfaces, and do the necessary repair work.
The steps include
1). Preparing the Surface: The first and most crucial step is preparing the concrete surface. This involves cleaning the floor thoroughly to remove dirt, dust, grease, or previous coatings. It may require sweeping, vacuuming, and degreasing the surface. If there are cracks or damaged areas, they need to be repaired and patched. Surface profiling, such as diamond grinding or shot blasting, may also create a rough texture that improves epoxy adhesion.
2). Primer Application: A primer coat is applied once the surface is clean and repaired. The primer helps to seal the concrete, prevent air bubbles from forming, and enhance the adhesion of the epoxy coating. The primer is typically rolled or brushed onto the floor and left to dry according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
3). Mixing Epoxy Components: Epoxy coatings consist of two main components – epoxy resin and a hardener. These two components must be mixed in the correct ratio to initiate the chemical reaction resulting in a hard, durable coating. The mixing process must be thorough and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure proper curing.
4). Epoxy Application: The application process begins once the epoxy components are mixed. It is essential to work in small sections, starting from a corner and gradually moving towards the exit. A roller or squeegee is commonly used to spread the epoxy evenly over the floor. Maintaining a consistent thickness throughout the application is essential to ensure a smooth and seamless finish.
5). Curing Time: After applying the epoxy, it needs time to cure and harden. The curing time depends on various factors, including temperature, humidity, and the specific epoxy product used. Following the manufacturer’s instructions regarding the recommended curing time is crucial before allowing foot traffic or placing any objects on the floor. During the curing process, it is essential to maintain a clean and dust-free environment to avoid any contaminants from settling on the epoxy surface.
6). Optional Additions: Additional layers or elements can be incorporated depending on the desired look and functionality. For instance, decorative flakes or quartz chips can be scattered onto the wet epoxy to add texture and visual appeal. These can be customized to match your preferences. Once the epoxy has cured, a clear topcoat is often applied to provide an extra layer of protection and enhance the glossiness of the floor.
