Benefits of Self-Leveling Epoxy Flooring
There are numerous benefits to using self-leveling epoxy floor coating. No matter where it’s used, people will sing the praises of this type of floor coating.
The strength and durability of epoxy flooring are above and beyond. It is perfect for high-performance areas because it can take impact and weight easily. It also adds to the life of your concrete flooring, by as much as 20 years!
For pharmaceutical facilities, labs, and other environments that use chemicals regularly, epoxy is a lifesaver. Not only do chemicals not effect the floor, but it is also waterproof and mold-proof. Of course, we don’t recommend just casually pouring anything onto the floor. But if you spill something and clean it up right away, your floor will last a long time.
With a dry/wet mop, cleaning is effortless. It takes just a few minutes to get everything up and go on with your day safely.
An epoxy floor coating is shiny and lustrous yet not slippery at all. It adds just the right amount of grip to keep you upright. It is even safe to walk on when wet!
Speaking of shine, epoxy has a high-gloss look that brings out the room. Even in the roughest environments, the floors look fantastic.
Self-leveling epoxy can be used with other epoxies to make exciting and unique designs. Give your showroom a special look by layering colors to create a new look. Put your favorite football team logo on your garage floor. The possibilities are endless if you have an idea.
