Understanding the Different Types of Epoxy Floor Coatings

August 5, 2021


Epoxy coatings are becoming more and more popular for both commercial and industrial flooring. Thanks to a variety of types, styles, and shapes, these highly versatile flooring coatings are great for just about any indoor or outdoor space.

Read on to learn about different types of epoxy floor coatings.

Self-leveling epoxy floors

This epoxy floor can be applied over damaged concrete floors for a durable, smooth, and leveled texture. These floors create a seamless, and shiny look and they come in various colors, making them suitable for residential, industrial, or commercial use. 

Recommended places for self-leveling epoxy floors: Warehouses, kitchens, manufacturing buildings, showrooms, garages, athletic spaces

Epoxy mortar floors

Epoxy mortar floors, made exclusively of solid epoxy and quartz or graded sand, are perfect for areas that require chemically resistant and durable floors. These floors can also be used for repairing cracks before applying another epoxy floor type. 

Recommended places for epoxy mortar floors: Warehouses, kitchens, restaurants, garages, mechanical facilities, factories

Quartz-filled epoxy floors

A combination of robust epoxy polymer resin and stained quartz grains, these floors are perfect for places that must be slip-resistant and sanitary. 

Recommended places to use quartz-filled epoxy floors: Restrooms, schools, locker rooms, lobbies, offices, cafeterias, showrooms

Anti-static epoxy floors

Electrostatic charge is a risk in many work environments. Anti-static epoxy floors can be applied to areas to reduce the risk of static hazards. These floors are equipped with conductive compounds that accumulate static electricity, dissipating potential discharge. Anti-static epoxy floors are perfect for spaces where flammable materials are found. 

Recommended places for anti-static epoxy floors: Pharmaceutical, chemical, and electronic factories, hospitals, or any facilities using flammable gases with a risk of combustible dust buildup

Epoxy flake floors

Epoxy flake floors have colored flake compounds mixed into the epoxy for a colorful, vibrant look. Besides sporting a sleek design, these flakes also have subtle grooves that help reduce falls and slips. These floors are available in a wide range of colors, sizes, textures, and styles, making them highly customizable for just about any commercial or industrial space. 

Recommended places for epoxy flake floors: Sports venues, clinics, kitchens, locker rooms, showrooms

Vapor barrier epoxy floors

Liquid epoxy vapor barrier floors go over concrete floors to reduce vapor transmission. These floors can be added before the final flooring surface, such as tile, carpet, hardwood floor, or tile application. 

Recommended places for barrier epoxy floors: Commercial facilities, sports venues, warehouses

Graveled epoxy floors

These coatings are among the most decorative and are perfect for adding branding, logotypes, or other decorative details to the floors.

Recommended places for graveled epoxy floors: Entryways, offices

Epoxy floors are highly versatile and durable enough for any space. If you want to create an elegant entrance to a facility or a highly durable garage floor, epoxy can be a perfect match. Consult a local flooring specialist if you need help determining the most suitable coating for your space.
