When it comes to choosing your concrete flooring options, it can be overwhelming trying to choose the wide array of available choices. Here at Epoxy systems international we would like to make help the choice seamless in your next commercial needs.
For instance, you may hear or read about someone raving about epoxy floor coatings, and then somewhere else you may hear about chemical-resistant floor coatings. This can leave you thinking, you have to choose between the two. This, however, is not always the case. Not all commercial flooring options are mutually exclusive, and often times, people will refer to the base material for the floor system while other times they will just refer to the purpose, making it seem as though these are two distinct options. In reality, most epoxy floor coatings are also chemical resistant.
This is why if you are in the process of updating your facility and looking for concrete flooring contractors to help you turn your old, worn-out floors into shiny, durable, new floors, it is important to consult with your concrete flooring contractors earlier rather than later. If you are in the need of new commercial concrete floors material, give us a call today.
Epoxy Floor Coating
Epoxy floor coating is one of the most popular commercial and industrial flooring options. It is versatile, durable, safe, easy-to-maintain, and can be tailored to meet most aesthetic requirements. It is a thick flooring material—often added on top of a concrete subfloor—that can also function as a protective layer, shielding the floor from damage caused by heat, chemicals, impact, and more. However, in order for an epoxy coated floor to hold up in a demanding environment, proper installation performed by skilled epoxy floor coating contractors with industry-leading equipment is required.

Anti-Slip Floor Coatings
Anti-slip coatings are often added to epoxy bases. To create a surface that remains grippy and safe even when wet, a special aggregate is added during the epoxy coating process. Non-slip floors can greatly improve the safety of a workplace, and, really, any location where walking surfaces are regularly oily, wet, or greasy. From tile bathrooms to large heavy-machinery warehouses, anti-slip coatings can be a great choice.
Decorative Floor Coatings
Decorative floor coatings are a perfect example of a category of flooring that refers more to a purpose rather than a material. Decorative concrete coatings can be added base epoxy, and they even work in conjunction with an anti-slip floor coating. Using decorative aggregates of flakes, pebbles, dyes, and more, the options for texture, design, and color are seemingly endless. Great for commercial spaces that get a heavy amount of foot traffic, like restaurants and retails stores, you can not only get a long-lasting durable commercial floor coating but also one that matches your design goals.
Antimicrobial Floor Coatings
Antimicrobial floor coatings are non-porous surfaces that are used in a number of commercial facilities like food processing, pharmaceutical, and other USDA and FDA regulated industries. Not only do these floor inherently prevent contaminants and moisture from having a place to hide and grow, but they are also able to withstand high levels of cleaning, traffic, harsh chemicals, temperatures, and more. On top of all of this, they are also relatively quick to install. Contact our epoxy floor coating sales team today to learn more about this type of flooring!
Thermal Shock-Resistant Coatings
As the name indicates, floors coated with thermal shock-resistant coatings are able to withstand thermal shock and many other hazards. Thermal shock occurs when a room that is typically kept at a constant cool temperature is shocked with hot water or steam, often as part of a cleaning process. If a floor is not prepared for this shock, the extreme chance will cause the coating to contract and expand, resulting in bubbling, cracking, peeling, or delamination. Similar to other commercial floor coatings, this type of coating can work in conjunction with other coatings.
