What are the Differences Between Epoxy Flooring and Epoxy Floor Coatings?

Last updated 2 years ago

Can you tell the difference between epoxy flooring and epoxy floor coatings? Unless you’re a professional epoxy flooring provider, chances are you can’t. That’s because there’s in fact very little difference between epoxy flooring and epoxy floor coatings. They both provide a durable, tough, slip-resistant floor that’s perfect for industrial, commercial, and residential applications. Still, there are a few things that separate epoxy flooring and epoxy floor coating. Read on to learn more about these differences and tips for choosing the best one for your home or business. 

Epoxy Flooring
Several layers of epoxy paint are applied onto the floor surface to a minimum thickness of at least two millimeters. This extra thickness is ideal for high traffic areas and areas that undergo heavy abuse since the flooring will not wear due to wear or abuse. There are several different types of epoxy floors, each of which is suited for specific flooring needs and applications. For example, epoxy antistatic floors are used where a static free environment is needed and self-dispersing quartz sand epoxy floors are used in areas where slip-resistance is required.

Epoxy Floor Coating
Unlike epoxy flooring, epoxy floor coating usually only has a few layers of epoxy paint applied onto the floor surface. Although epoxy floor coating usually has a thickness of less than two millimeters, it provides better performance than most other flooring materials, particularly where slip-resistance and easy maintenance is needed. Epoxy floor coatings are available in a wide variety of colors, and epoxy paint chips kits can be used to create a speckled or flake-like appearance that helps turn your floor space into a work of art.
