Epoxy Flooring: Should You Invest In Floor Coatings?

If you already have a concrete floor but are not overjoyed at the way we looks and functions, an epoxy floor coating could help. Epoxy and polyurethane floor coatings are a popular way to brighten up a workplace whilst improving the quality of the floor, without needing an entirely new floor to be installed. So, rather than opting for a brand new floor that could disrupt work and be a big expense, opt for a floor coating option instead.

Understanding Epoxy Floor Coatings

Epoxy flooring coatings are used to transform concrete surfaces. Oftentimes, concrete surfaces appear dull, dusty and tired looking but a coating of epoxy and polyurethane resin can alter this completely. Available in both gloss and matte finishes, flooring coatings leave businesses with a flooring solution to be proud of. This is something that is especially popular among industries where customers or visitors are likely to see the warehouse or factory, such as in manufacturing or retail.

If there’s one thing we know about here at Impact Flooring, it’s leaving customers with a flooring that is as functional as it is good looking. That’s why we’re so passionate about how beneficial an epoxy coating can be to a workplace. As well as providing a great finish aesthetically, an epoxy finish is strong, resistant and easy to clean.

The Benefits of an Epoxy Floor Coating

Those who already have a concrete floor and then have an epoxy coating added are always pleased with the results. There are a number of benefits to having an epoxy floor coating added to a concrete surface and these extend much further than just the way it looks. Though an epoxy floor coating does provide a great finish, it also:

  • Provides a chemical resistant barrier for the concrete floor.
  • Adds to the strength and durability of the floor.
  • Removes the dust that concrete floor often produces.
  • Includes demarcation lines and stencilling to highlight pedestrian areas, signs, fire exits, out of bounds areas and more.
  • Has a range of different finishes including gloss, matte and patterned.
  • Provides an easy to clean surface.

So, as you can see, investing in a coating for concrete flooring is one that improves the flooring as a whole. To find out more about epoxy flooring and coatings, get in touch.
