What is Epoxy?
Epoxy coating is different than other floor paint. Resinous flooring is typically a two part system – one part polymer resins and one part hardener. When the two are combined and mixed properly, the epoxy resin and hardener react to each other and create chemical bond to the actual flooring. The coating/bond becomes a hard plastic material that is not only incredibly durable but does not wear out over time.
What is Epoxy Flooring?
Epoxy flooring is a surface which has many layers of epoxy applied with a depth of at a minimum of 2 millimeters. There is however, some confusion when it comes to epoxy floor and epoxy floor coating. The difference between each of these only depends on the thickness of the epoxy. Epoxy floor coating is most commonly lesser than 2 millimeters thick while an epoxy floor is more than 2 millimeters.
What are the Different Types Epoxy Flooring?
There are essentially two types of epoxy floors. The first type is self-leveling epoxy flooring. This type is applied over older, cracked or damaged concrete floors to create a smooth and durable floor. Self-leveling epoxy floors give not just a smooth and seamless finish but come in hundreds of different colors and finishes which are able to be applied in both commercial and industrial applications as well as residentially. Self-leveling epoxy floors can be used in industrial buildings, warehouses, garages, kitchens, gyms and more.
The next type of epoxy flooring is called epoxy mortar flooring. This is made up only of solid epoxies and graded or quartz sand. Mortar systems are ideal for spaces which require a durable surface and can withstand a great deal of high impact. Typically, this variation of flooring is used to repair cracks before applying another type of epoxy floor. They are suited well for mechanical warehouses and garages, commercial kitchens, restaurants and other manufacturing plants.
Other Types Epoxy Flooring?
Quartz epoxy flooring is a mix of high performance epoxy polymer and stained quartz. It’s used most often in decorative spaces that need to be slip resistant. Typically they are used in areas like public bathrooms, schools, cafeterias, offices locker rooms and more.
Epoxy Flake Floors are also becoming popular. These floors contain colored flake material that gives the floor a mulit-colored look. No only does this type of flooring allow for a great deal of customization, but the flakes within the epoxy also gives the surface some texture to prevent slipping. These floors are great to customize any space.
Why Consider Epoxy Counters in Your Space?
Epoxy countertops are all the trend and provide you with an affordable update to your kitchen without a huge remodel! Epoxy is a finish that creates a smooth and solid finish as it hardens. This means the incredibly unique surface should last for years.
Epoxy is mainly used as a refinishing product where the product is applied to revitalize and restore older kitchen and bathroom counters. It’s a very popular choice to use when refinishing counters because of its durability. It is scratch-resistant and keeps its shine for years on end.
Epoxy can be applied over most existing counters including Formica, ceramic, metal, wood, laminate, and concrete.
How are Epoxy Countertops Made?
Epoxy countertops are made by mixing resin with a hardener. It hardens quickly and creates a glossy finish to your existing countertops. Depending on the thickness of the epoxy, most people add a shiny protective layer of about one-eighth inch.
When the epoxy hardens, you end up with long lasting and durable shine! The epoxy is also the most versatile countertop material available on the market today. There is an unlimited number of colors and paters available on the market. Epoxy counters are also heat resistant so they are ideal for the kitchen. It’s also non-toxic and food-safe once the resin has cured. Epoxy is also easy to clean without damaging the surface. It’s truly one of the most affordable and versatile products on the market.
