Epoxy Floor Coatings
Epoxy resin coatings on concrete floors are the most common resin to use on an industrial floor. Epoxy resin is hard wearing and creates a dramatic positive impact as you can choose any colour to compliment your business. Please look through our recent projects to see some examples.
Depending on the thickness of the coating and the traffic on the floor the coating will have a different lifespan. Typically the coating will last a minimum of 5 to 10 years.
