What is Epoxy resin?
Epoxy resin is a liquid thermosetting polymer. It consists of two components:
- Bisphenol A
- Bisphenol F
Each component ensures better resistance. Epoxy resin can be processed in its liquid form and hardens when exposed to a temperature of between 10 and 15°C. It is highly valued for its durability and ease of maintenance.
Epoxy resin flooring, which is only a few millimetres thick, is a coating based on resin and hardener to which mineral fillers and other materials are added. This mixture provides a high level of wear resistance and a shine that captures the light and reflects it intensely. Epoxy resin is therefore an ideal solution for your floor coverings, as it gives a neat finish and great resistance, while providing perfect waterproofing. Initially used in industry, it is now gradually finding its way into private homes.

On what type of surface to apply epoxy resin?
Epoxy resin has maximum adhesion capacity, which enables it to be applied to all types of surfaces: metal, wood, concrete, tiles, polyester laminate, etc. It can be poured onto an existing floor after preparing it. When applying epoxy resin systems, the preparation of the support is a very important step which guarantees the durability of the project: levelling, filling joints, etc.
Before applying the product, it is essential to ensure that the floor is sound, dry and perfectly clean. The slightest defect in the support will be visible. Cracks and holes must be filled and levelling may be necessary if the surface is not level. Sanding is essential before cleaning the floor and removing dust.
