Benefits of installing workshop epoxy flooring:

Types of Epoxy Flooring Available:
There are two main types of epoxy flooring that are typically used for workshop epoxy flooring and these include:
1. Flake Flooring – This is the speckled look. This is highly recommended for these large spaces for a multiple reason. It is the best at hiding dirt and concealing the imperfections of the concrete slab that may naturally occur over time (substrate movement).
2. Plain Epoxy Flooring – This is a cheaper alternative to the flake flooring solution, however, does not conceal anything. Plain coated floors highlight every sin of the concrete, in which some are impossible to conceal.

The Process for Laying a Workshop Epoxy Floor:
A) Grind, Patch & Prime
- Concrete grinding preparation to ensure smooth substrate and a clean porous surface to apply the epoxy coating.
- Concrete repairs via patching any visible cracks and holes on the surface of the concrete slab.
- Application of the industrial grade epoxy primer.
B) Prime & Flake
- Second application of the industrial grade epoxy primer.
- Broadcast the flake across the wet epoxy floor coating.
C) UV Stabilised Polyurethane Sealing
- Two coats of a topcoat sealer using a UV Stabilised Polyurethane.

Also, look for something that brightens the room up – nobody likes working in a dark and grimy area.

- Floors can be completed out of hours to minimise any impact on commercial activities that you run from the premises.
