What is Decorative Epoxy Resinous Flooring?

As a business owner or maintenance manager of an office building, you’re likely hearing a lot about what decorative epoxy flooring can do for your property.

Not quite sure where to start? We’re here to help.

“Epoxy resinous flooring is best described in the name: decorative,” says Amy Manghelli, Vice President of Sales at Surface Solutions, Inc. “This type of flooring is commonly found in public areas of a building that have a high amount of foot traffic, and the floors also need to look visually pleasing.”

Decorative epoxy resinous flooring is an attractive application to flooring made for non-production areas of a building where aesthetics is important to everyday business. Areas that benefit from this type of industrial flooring solution include:

  • Lobbies
  • Offices
  • Hallways
  • Restrooms
  • School or sports complex locker rooms and more

It is an epoxy flooring system that is either a blended flake quartz floor or metallic. Depending on the industry, commercial and retail locations will feature a decorative epoxy resinous flooring with great effect. Because it is seamless, it is inherently hygienic. An additional resinous top coat can also be applied for sanitation purposes, too.

Decorative Options

For concrete floors, two distinctive epoxy resinous options are designed specifically for decorative applications, and are both durable and attractive.

Decorative Epoxy Flake Flooring System

  • Epoxy-based flooring surface
  • One layer of colored vinyl chips creates a decorative element
  • Sealed with a clear, high gloss, chemical-resistant top coat
  • Installed at a thickness ranging for 1/16-inch to 1/8-inch

Decorative Epoxy Quartz Flooring System

  • 100% solids epoxy base coat
  • Two layers of colored quartz aggregate create a decorative element
  • Sealed with a clear, high gloss, chemical-resistant top coat
  • Installed at a thickness ranging for 1/16-inch to 1/8-inch
  • Can be completed with a seamless cove base

Decorative epoxy resinous industrial flooring systems are installed in a variety of colors and textures to compliment the unique environment of any office building or facility.

“Sometimes, carpet has a soiled and worn look, before its time,” Amy says. “If an office had a paint chip floor or a quartz floor, not only would it be earlier to clean and keep clean, it would be more aesthetically pleasing to clients and employees alike.”
