Epoxy flooring is a type of surface coating that will protect a concrete floor from constant wear and tear. Epoxy is made from a combination of liquid hardening chemicals and liquid polymer resin. Once these two are combined they are poured over an existing flooring or base material in order to create a protective coating. Although epoxy flooring is generally a concrete floor it can also be used on floors made of wood. You can even have a floor that is made entirely from epoxy.
This type of flooring is very popular to use for industrial applications. The reason is that it creates the type of surface that is impervious to industrial flooring wear and tear and many chemical spills. Contractors for such kind of flooring can also mix color chips, sand, and other hard plastic with the epoxy to give traction to the flooring. The type of sand that is most often used is quartz sand. Using this sand will help to create floors that are nonslip for industries in the food processing area. Many epoxy flooring have anti-static properties that are used in electronic manufacturing or laboratories where electrical charges could damage sensitive electronic equipment.
