What Is Epoxy Resin Flooring?

Epoxy resin flooring is made up of 2 parts: a tinted base with a resin activator. When mixed together, a chemical reaction starts a curing process. As a result, we get epoxy resin floor coating that can be applied to concrete, wood, or even wall surfaces.

Diamond grinding a floor will give the epoxy resin a better surface to adhere to and provide a longer lifespan.

Advantages of Epoxy Resin

  • Appearance. Available in gloss and any colour, epoxy resin floors improve the appearance of a floor.
  • Protection of concrete floors.  Chemical and oil spills to bare concrete can soak in and degrade the surface over time. This can be overcome using epoxy resin coatings to protect the floor.
  • Cost to install. Epoxy resin coatings are a cost-effective industrial flooring solution.
  • Lifespan. An epoxy resin floor should last 5 years before looking tired.
  • Durability. Epoxy resin coatings are 7 times thicker than paint and will not flake or blister.

Disadvantages

  • DIY issues. If floors are painted with epoxy resin without diamond grinding, the lifespan will be reduced.
  • Smell during installation. Epoxy resin coatings do produce a smell while curing. This will dissipate over 2-3 days.
  • Slippery values. With floors that are prone to getting wet or suffering oil spills, it can become slippery. We would advise adding aggregate to the coating.
  • Fresh/green concrete. High moisture content will give issues to high-build epoxy resin coatings as they restrict the release of moisture. Choose a water-permeable epoxy resin coating instead.
  • UV stable. Epoxy resin coatings are not UV stable and discolour over time. Use a polyurethane top coat for white- coloured floors.

When Should You Think About Getting Epoxy Resin Floor Coating?​

Our epoxy resin floor coating will work great in spaces where heavy-duty performance is required. This type of coating offers stellar protection against mechanical wear and tear as well as chemical damage, which means it will make the most sense in spaces like production halls, print companies’ workspaces, sports and leisure facilities, or automotive companies’ production areas, among many others.

When might be a good time to think about obtaining this flooring?​

Investing in epoxy resin flooring is a good decision when you see the damage being done to your floors or you want to protect them from that damage beforehand. Especially during various production processes, thinking ahead and securing your floors with protective coating can save you lots of time, money, and potential safety hazards that you would have to address eventually.

Epoxy Resin Floor Cost UK

What is the cost of this investment? This will depend on a few factors, like the area you need to cover, the type of resin flooring you select, and how much prep work is needed before painting the floors.

While epoxy resin floor coating is an affordable way to gain valuable protection for your floors, it’s better to work with experienced epoxy resin flooring contractors who can offer you great prices as well as a guarantee the job will be accomplished with the inclusion of all the best practices and industry standards.

Trust us, the floor is not something you want to compromise on.

I can highly recommend Anglia Decor. Steve looked at our difficult industrial floor refurb job. He gave great advice on the selection of products and colours. When it came to the actual work, Steve was involved in the preparation and coating. Always with a smile, calmly dealing with issues and the finer details of the work. Good value as well. One of the best experiences I've had in dealing with contractors.

Called Steve at Anglia Decor for a dilapidations exterior metal cladding quote, that needed doing relatively quickly. Steve was amazing, professional and so knowledgably. He quickly priced the job from Google maps and sent a man to start within days! This is 5 star customer service and the price was excellent. The job was completed this week and is excellent. Thank you Steve, Warren and the team. Great work!

Epoxy Resin Flooring Case Studies

Toyota

We were called to SLM Toyota to remove an old defective coating and install a long-lasting epoxy flooring system. The old coating was worn and flaked with areas of bare concrete. Our team removed the existing coating using PCD and diamond grinders, filled any defects, and vacuumed the floor. We then applied a first coat of high-build epoxy coating to seal the floor.

The following day, we returned to fill more defects and apply a resin topcoat with a contrasting green walkway. This epoxy flooring system gives a dry film thickness of 400 microns and is 7 times thicker than standard paint.
With typical usage, it will last around 4-5 years before looking tired and requiring a refresh.

Arrival Ltd.

epoxy flooring arrival

Our team was called in to carry out an epoxy flooring project at Arrival, Feltham. We prepared the floor by diamond grinding, filled minor defects, and applied the resin base coat.
The walkways were done using a darker contrast grey.

cleaned floor

We returned on day 2 and filled more defects, repainted the walkways, and applied a top coat to the main 1000m2 floor area.
We have returned to Arrival to complete more floor areas since, and this warehouse is still in good condition.
