Epoxy Flooring Versus Epoxy Floor Coating – Is There a Difference?
One important distinction to make is that there is indeed a difference between epoxy flooring and floor coatings. The terms are often used interchangeably amongst customers and industry professionals, but pricing and performance will vary based on your choice. The term “epoxy flooring” is applied to any result that is thicker than 2mm. This application provides structural support and serves as a rigid floor system for a variety of applications. An epoxy floor coating, on the other hand, consists of any depth less than 2mm in order to provide a protective layer on top.
Don’t Forget the Finish!
While epoxy flooring is designed to provide rigid protection and a variety of advantages to your concrete flooring system, it may not be enough for certain applications. PPI Flooring can work with you to find the right topcoat for your industrial or commercial floors, relying on high-quality products to ensure an ideal fit that serves your business for years to come.
Customers can rely on one of several flooring finishes, including:
- Urethane finishes — Introduce an amazing finish in a variety of colors with pigmented urethane products. Laboratories, clean rooms, and other sanitary spaces can benefit from the high-gloss appearance of this floor finish.
- Polymer floor coatings — While each material requires different preparations and circumstances for a quality finish, polymer flooring options come in many mixtures to deliver a quality finish. Epoxy and polyurethane mortars, for example, deliver added protection and UV resistance.
How your concrete flooring looks will play a huge role in the overall appearance of your business. Additionally, your facility may require added coatings or finishes to ensure that the beauty lasts year after year. “You get what you paid for,” is one adage that is true for epoxy flooring applications, so be sure you are confident in the products and personnel deployed to create your floor system.
