Epoxy is a thermosetting epoxide polymer. This means, that when the adhesive cures, it cannot return to its original form. It reacts with other chemicals, which help to cure or harden it, and this creates a very strong and very durable adhesive. These same chemical properties are what make it so useful in sealing and protecting surfaces. Because of these properties, it is useful for commercial, residential, industrial, marine, and even art applications. In fact, epoxy is useful just about everywhere.
Compared to other types of flooring, epoxy is long lasting and economic.
Epoxy flooring is very simple to clean and care for. With simple occasional cleaning, and a reseal every five years, your floors should remain in great shape for decades.
You need flooring that will last and stand up to the abuses of weather and everyday traffic. Epoxy hardens into a protective shell that can last a lifetime with proper care. It will look good for much longer than many other types of flooring.
This type of flooring offers more options for creative design. Colors, logos, patterns, chips, flakes, etc. are all possible with this type of floor, depending on your specific contractor.
By adding texture, we can provide better traction to your epoxy floors. If you’re worried about safety or your floors get wet and dirty, this can create an anti-slip surface.
Our epoxy floors hold less dust and other particulates as normal flooring. This makes sweeping and cleaning quicker and easier.
our experienced professionals know that careful preparation is the key to quality installation. They will prepare the surface to apply the epoxy coating quickly and easily.
We have supplied many businesses with unique epoxy coatings tailored to their needs. These have included specialized and customized chip and flake options and metallic coatings for that unique personal touch.
Problems with Epoxy coatings are almost always due to inadequate preparation. For us, this is the most important part of the job. We prepare the floor so that the coating will adhere properly and will not peel and flake prematurely.
Our process includes grinding, shot blasting or acid etching so that pores in the concrete substrate are opened. Then we carefully remove all dirt, dust and other particulates. At Urethane USA we typically find it most effective to use a large diamond surface grinder to prepare the floors for maximum adhesion.
