Epoxy flooring is laid on top of concrete substrates as a form of protection and decoration. The systems can comprise several layers of thermosetting resin that are coated, trowelled or poured and generally applied onto a concrete substrate. Once the resin layers completely cure, the floor system forms a strong and permanent bond, protecting the substrate.
Epoxy flooring is a synthetic resin floor system made of adhesive, paint, plastic, or other material that is created as a polymer of epoxides. The term “epoxy” is used to describe coatings that are created from two components, meaning a combination mix of two different chemicals, referred to as ‘resin’. This combination is the reason that epoxy is known to be the highest-strength resin on the market.
Specialty additives can be added to the epoxy to suit a wide variety of flooring applications. Using specialty additives and aggregates, epoxy floor coatings can be customised to achieve different desired performance characteristics such as more rapid cure, increased abrasion resistance, higher chemical resistance, higher or lower viscosity, thicker flooring, and non-slip texture. Decorative features like vinyl flakes, quartz aggregate and glitter can also be for a more aesthetic outcome.
Epoxy Flooring has good resistance to scratching, but it can be scratched and scuffed if heavy or sharp objects are dragged across it. Often there is a misconception that epoxy flooring is indestructible, this is not the case, care still needs to be taken if scratching is to be avoided. Generally, superficial damage is not detrimental to the overall performance of the floor other than appearance. Fortunately, heavily scratched epoxy floors can be recoated periodically to keep them pristine if appearance is paramount.
The term “waterproof” is often thrown around a little carelessly. Strictly speaking, a product is considered waterproof if it meets various National or International waterproofing standards, that generally require the system to have a flexible membrane type of crack bridging potential and overall characteristics. Although epoxy is impervious to water and will not allow water to easily pass through it can’t fulfill the technical requirements of being ‘waterproof’. Nevertheless, epoxy provides exceptional protection to a concrete floor or surface from ingress of water.
Epoxy resin due to its composition has limitations when used in full exposure to sunlight, like in a fully exposed location. Although it can perform extremely well in protecting the surface it is applied to, it will invariably discolour and can ‘chalk’ with exposure to strong UV light. This is limited to it’s appearance only. Other resins systems can perform better in this regard and can be combined with an epoxy base to offer greater resistance to discolouration. These alternative resins can include aliphatic polyurethanes, MMA’s and polyaspartics to name a few.
