THE TYPES OF EPOXY FLOORING
A ) SELF LEVELLING EPOXY
Self-levelling epoxy is applied over new, old, cracked, or damaged concrete floors to create a smooth, durable, and a levelled texture on the surface of the floor. Self-levelling epoxy floors comes with different colours and it can be used in commercial, industrial, and residential spaces. Upon application the epoxy resin coating forms a smooth and level texture on the surface of the floor .The resin has a tendency to “self-level” unlike applying the coating with a roller. The self levelling epoxy shall be used as flooring and floor coatings.
EPOXY MORTAR FLOORS
This flooring option is the most stringent epoxy floor system available for use. This epoxy floor is made up of 100% solid epoxies and graded or quartz sand. Mortar systems are ideal for floors that has to be highly chemically-resistant and has to negotiate a great deal of impact. This epoxy mortar can also be used to repair cracks and level a pitted floor prior to the application of self levelling epoxy floorings.
QUARTZ FILLED EPOXY FLOORS
Quartz epoxy flooring is a combination of a high-performance epoxy polymer resin and stained quartz grains. Normally 150 micron to 2 mm quartz sand is used in this type of flooring. This epoxy is used for decorative spaces that require sanitary and slip-resistant properties.
ANTISTATIC EPOXY FLOORS (ESD FLOORS)
This is also called ESD floorings (Electro static Dissipate). For taking care of static hazards anti-static epoxy floors are applied.This epoxy floor typically holds a conductive compound that accumulates static electricity that dissipates any potential discharge. An anti-static solution is a highly recommended epoxy floor for spaces that contain flammable materials. This type of flooring is commonly used in electronic, chemical, or pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, healthcare facilities, or any spaces that use flammable gases or liquids that bring a risk of combustible dust buildup.
EPOXY FLAKE FLOORS
This type of epoxy floor contains colored flake materials that are inserted in the epoxy to create a vibrant, multi-hued look. The flakes not only offer a seamless look but also provides each surface with subtle grooves to reduce any slips and falls. Epoxy flake floors come in an infinite variety of sizes, colors, styles, and textures that is customizable for any space. and used in sports venues , showrooms etc.
