While many people automatically relate epoxy coatings to garage floors as a way to enhance appearance, this flooring system is actually far more versatile. While it is true that epoxy floors look amazing, especially when colored metallic flakes or pigments are added, they offer many additional benefits for residential, commercial, and industrial applications.
Among the top benefits is that epoxy coatings create a nonslip surface. Because of that, this flooring system is the perfect choice for any home or business where spills are common. Whether the spill consists of water, ice, food, or even condensation, the nonslip surface creates a safer environment.
Today, millions of homes, as well as commercial and industrial buildings, enjoy epoxy coatings, including garages, kitchens, restaurants, bars, laboratories, beverage plants, food plants, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and the list goes on.
Another thing that makes epoxy coatings unique to other flooring systems is that they serve as a sealant for concrete floors. Therefore, this flooring system is highly versatile, making it the ideal choice for floors as well as walls, walkways, driveways, and even ceilings in certain situations.
There is also the fact that epoxy coatings are extremely strong and durable. Especially for someone who wants to invest in a long-lasting floor, epoxy is ideal. Once applied, products like SunEpoxy 54 and SunEpoxy 100 convert to a solid polymer. At that point, not only is the chemical breakdown prevented, the floor’s strength intensifies. Compared to other flooring systems, epoxy is much stronger and longer lasting, and it wears incredibly well.
For home and business owners, having a floor that is easy to clean and maintain is always a bonus. Since the concrete surface is no longer porous after the epoxy is applied, cleaning up messes is easy. Typically, sweeping as needed and an occasional damp mopping is all this floor needs. Considering these benefits and the beauty of epoxy coatings, it is easy to understand the popularity of this flooring system.
