While we all know that epoxy flooring is one of the best flooring options for whatever area it is going to be placed in, we need to know exactly how epoxy flooring can be classified in different areas and the types of epoxy flooring that are available on the market to make sure we get what we need. Today we are going to be taking a dive into the world of epoxy flooring and explain a little about the most popular types of epoxy flooring that you can buy today!
To start it all off, we are going to be looking at maybe one of the most unique types of epoxy flooring, the metallic epoxy flooring. Metallic epoxy flooring is unique due to its appearance as it can replicate the appearance of the lava flow, a cloudy day or even waves crashing in on the coast. The best part about this appearance is the fact that it can never be perfectly replicated, not even by the same person who installed it! Don’t worry about losing any durability either as a metallic epoxy flooring uses the 100 percent solid epoxy system for its base epoxy so it’s a strong as is it is durable!
The next type of epoxy flooring we are going to discuss today is the garage floor epoxy. Garage floor epoxy is rapidly becoming one of the most popular garage floor coatings for good reason. A garage floor epoxy is able to resist stains from the harsh materials that are typically found in the garage such as oil and gasoline. Along with not staining from these harsh materials, epoxy flooring is even able to resist the harshest chemicals that can be found in the garage by isolating the chemical on the surface of the flooring for easy cleanup and disposal. Not to mention that the garage floor epoxy is able to make the usually dull and poorly lit garage brighter! The garage epoxy flooring has been tested and proven to make the garage up to 300 percent brighter without the use of additional lighting sources, making your garage more welcoming and safer all while saving you money on your electricity bill.
Commercial epoxy is one of the most used flooring options in many commercial industries for more than only a few reasons. Commercial epoxy flooring is actually one of the few flooring options that have been approved by the USDA for use in facilities that handle perishable foods and even in medical facilities. This is because the seamless finish of commercial epoxy flooring is both easily disinfected and won’t allow for any dropped food particles or stray bacteria to hide away and form serious health hazards. Commercial epoxy flooring also offers a non-slip surface, which is critical especially in restaurants, hospitals, and storefronts. There is even a way that the commercial epoxy flooring is able to gain even more traction, even when it is wet! There is an additive that can be placed directly into the top coat of epoxy that looks like sand that adds traction to the flooring which is critical in areas that are prone to moisture.
