Epoxy flooring, which is also called resin or polymer flooring, is a resin-based flooring that consists of two main components: resin and hardener. In this way, resin and hardener are combined in a certain amount, then they are applied on smooth surfaces and create a hard and resistant floor during the chemical reactions that take place between the components. The thickness of this flooring depends on its use.
It is usually between 2 and 3 mm thick, but this thickness can be reduced or increased for different surfaces. The smoothness or roughness of the main substrate (concrete) has a direct effect on the consumption of epoxy materials.
The useful life of epoxy flooring depends on the space in which it is used. The useful life of these floors is longer than other floors. For example, the floors that are used in crowded and high-traffic places such as parking lots of commercial complexes, restaurants, etc., have a useful life of 2 to 3 years, which can be extended with proper care and regular cleaning it. But they may need repair and revision after this period. The main thing about the lifespan of the flooring is that this factor has a direct relationship with the space in which our flooring is used.
In fact, the durability of epoxy flooring depends entirely on how to use and care for the flooring. The useful life of epoxy flooring in environments with less traffic and less contact with corrosive materials is estimated to be ten years because they are not associated with high traffic.
The useful life of epoxy flooring increases with proper care and compliance with certain conditions. In order not to need to repair this flooring too soon, it is necessary to observe the following points:
