What is Workshop Epoxy Flooring?
Workshop epoxy flooring is a type of flooring created from epoxy resin, which is a two-part adhesive substance that, when mixed, forms a hardened coating. This coating protects surfaces from damage and decay.
Epoxy flooring in Australia is becoming more common because of the chemical properties of epoxy resin, which provides spectacular durability, and as it is applied to the top of a sub-floor such as concrete, acts as a protective layer.
Workshop flooring is often susceptible to damage due to heavy items being dropped, chemicals and liquids being spilled, or wear and tear from daily use. Using a workshop floor coating, you can help protect your workshop floor for many years before replacing it.
Why Do People Prefer Epoxy Flooring For Their Workshops?
Workshops experience daily use and abuse at the hands of their owners. Depending on your working environment, your workshop flooring can take a daily beating, whether from foot traffic or vehicle traffic, if you’re a mechanic.
Many workshop business owners prefer using an epoxy floor covering because it provides cost-effective protection for your concrete or wood sub-flooring and is relatively easy to maintain. If you’re working in a high-impact environment where your floors are routinely bearing the brunt of chemical spills, dropped tools or other impact-related damage, applying a thin coating of epoxy floor covering could save you thousands in repairs and future-proof your flooring against damage.
The Benefits of Installing Epoxy Flooring For Your Workshop
There are many benefits to installing epoxy coating in Australia for your workshop or garage. These include:
Ease of Maintenance
Unlike other flooring types like wood or laminate flooring, a floor epoxy coating doesn’t require much maintenance. You don’t need to lacquer or buff it periodically like a wooden floor. Epoxy flooring is easy to clean: just a bit of soap and a scrubbing brush is all you need to wipe up simple stains, but avoid using steel wool brushes, as this could scratch and damage the flooring.
Your epoxy workshop floor is cost-effective for making your existing concrete flooring more durable, particularly if it shows signs of wear. As a liquid, epoxy resin can come in a workshop floor paint-like substance, allowing you to apply a thin layer over the entire floor, offering protection without breaking the bank.
Epoxy floor coating in Australia is relatively affordable compared to other flooring solutions. Wood flooring repairs may seem less expensive initially, but considering they could require multiple fixes over a decade, the cost-effectiveness becomes questionable. Epoxy floor coating is known for its durability and long-lasting protection, offering better value for your investment in the long run.
Because SWEF’s workshop floor coating is made from the finest epoxy resin materials, our workshop floor coating provides supreme protection. Epoxy resin is designed to be a non-reactive material that chemical spills won’t damage, as they are resistant to acids and solvents.
Fast Application: Minimal Working Disruption
Because epoxy flooring can be applied easily and quickly, sometimes using workshop floor paint. You don’t need to worry about extensive disruptions to your workflow. Each epoxy floor kit will have slightly different instructions, but generally, your epoxy floor coating process should take no more than 36 hours. With 12-24 hours between the first and second coats, a further 12 hours are needed to allow the whole floor to cure properly.
At SWEF, we are happy to work around your schedule and could even apply the resin across your floorspace in stages to help further prevent workflow disruption.
