Epoxy is strong, scratch- and stain-resistant, easy-to-clean and to maintain, and exceptionally durable. It works as a moisture (vapor) barrier and supports heavy weights.
Epoxy treatments are high-performance coatings that can be applied over concrete to provide a smooth and durable surface. It can last many years and withstands heavy weights.
In residential properties, epoxy is used in garages because homeowners love the glossy look of the car dealerships floors. Lately, homeowners are using epoxy treatments in living room, bedrooms, and the kitchen. The beautiful, glossy, seamless finish can make any space look impressive.
BENEFITS OF EPOXY TREATMENTS
- Durability: The high-performance epoxy floor coating system is stronger than concrete. It is scratch- and impact-resistant. You will not have to worry about a dropped item leaving a dent or crack behind like you would with tile or hardwood.
- Easy to clean and maintain: The smooth, glossy finish of epoxy makes it amazingly easy to clean up any substances off the floor. Household liquids often stain carpets and hardwood floors, but with epoxy, liquid stains are easily wiped up without any hassle. Epoxy floors are also dust- and dirt-resistant, making it a better option than tile, which retains dust and dirt inside the cracks and grout lines. Epoxy coatings require little if any repairs, which gives it an added boost in its long-term value.
- Non-toxic: The tough and versatile epoxy finish is made of a long-lasting resin coating, which does not corrode or dissolve even after years of use. Unlike other types of flooring, epoxy also does not require harsh chemicals to clean it, which could potentially harm the environment.
- Aesthetic pleasant: Epoxy floors are beautiful. You can select from many patterns, colors, and styles. Epoxy treatments can be found in clear, one-color, or metallic (3D) looks and are available in matte, medium, and glossy (mirror-like) finishes. The ‘marble-look’ is increasingly popular due to its striking resemblance to the real marble. The difference is the marble comes in tiles. Imagine a single piece of marble on your living room for a fraction of the price.
Epoxy is used in hospitals, medical facilities, schools, garages, and industrial environments. Lately, it has become very popular for residential spaces, such as living rooms, kitchens, basements, and other rooms types. The look of metallic epoxy floors (3D) is not only unique, but also customizable in terms of level of sheen: matte, semi-glossy, and mirror-like glossy.
Epoxy Treatments are overlays that can be applied on top of concrete and tiles, even asbestos tiles, in a process called encapsulation. This is a safe (if not the safest) and economical way of preventing the asbestos from becoming airborne.
