When combined, the mixture chemically reacts to create a rigid plastic-like material that is strong, durable, and resistant to wear and tear. epoxy flooring is commonly used in industrial and commercial settings due to its high durability, but it’s becoming increasingly popular in residential homes as well because of its versatility and attractive finish.

Epoxy flooring is typically made up of a combination of resins and hardeners. The resins are usually a type of thermosetting polymer that is mixed with a hardener to create a chemical reaction that results in a durable, hard, and smooth surface. Additionally, epoxy flooring can include additives such as fillers, pigments, and aggregates to achieve the desired look and texture. The specific materials used in an epoxy flooring system can vary depending on the manufacturer and the intended use of the flooring.
