If you have concrete floors there are a number of decorative concrete solutions to protect them and leave them with a fantastic looking finish.
Polished concrete can be a very attractive way to feature the natural look of concrete floors however you might want something a little more refined, decorative and/or glossy. This is where an epoxy coating can be the perfect concrete flooring solution.
Epoxy flooring is the natural choice for many Brisbane based home and business owners thanks to its unrivalled longevity and durability.
Unique Epoxy Resin Floors
Epoxy floor coating systems are able to protect concrete from wear and tear in both a durable and decorative way. This is because Epoxy resin is much harder and tougher than the concrete itself.

- Garage flooring
- Industrial workshops & commercial premisis
- Shopping centres

Frequently Asked Epoxy Questions
What Is Epoxy Flooring?
Epoxy flooring is a floor surface made up of multiple layers of epoxy, applied to a floor depth of at least 2mm. If it is less than 2mm, it is known as an Epoxy floor coating.
Epoxy consists of two main parts – resin and hardeners. These are mixed together to form a rigid plastic material which is extremely tough and also resistant to degradation. Epoxy floors are so strong they are often used in the most demanding commercial and industrial environments.
Why Choose Epoxy Flooring?
An epoxy floor coating is highly durable, decorative and long-lasting coating. Epoxy can be applied to an existing floor or concrete area resulting in to added strength, increased durability and extra visual appeal.
Epoxy is a fantastic indoor flooring solution suitable for use in places like:
- restaurants & commercial kitchens
- industrial buildings
- shopping centres
- commercial kitchens
- any commercial premises
Epoxy is also great for use outdoors for flooring, pools, patio areas, walkways, and high pedestrian foot traffic areas.
How much does it cost to epoxy a floor?
Epoxy flooring is affordable in comparison to other flooring solutions.
There are a few factors which determine the cost of epoxy such as:
- the type of epoxy coating you choose
- the size of the area
- the condition of the concrete slab that will be covered in epoxy resin (a quality concrete slab is required for a professional epoxy finish of the highest standard.)
Do Epoxy coated floors scratch easily?
Epoxy flooring is one of the hardest and most durable types of industrial floor finishes available today.
Your standard Epoxy floor will be capable of resisting more than 10,000psi.
With that being said, if you apply enough force it is still possible to scratch or gouge Epoxy, although fairly unlikely to occur. If you need an even stronger floor, you can add a topcoat of urethane to increase durability and resistance to abrasion.
Are Epoxy floors slippery?
Epoxy flooring is not slippery.
Due to the smooth feel and glossy aesthetic, Epoxy floors look much more slippery than they actually are in reality.
Epoxy can become slippery when wet, however this can be overcome by applying a non-skid additive to the topcoat. This makes Epoxy completely safe when it's wet, even if it's an oil based liquid that has been spilled.
Is Epoxy resin waterproof?
Yes - one of the great features of Epoxy is it's ability to form an anti-corrosive and waterproof seal.
It sounds great for commercial and industrial use, but is Epoxy coating good for your home?
Yes - there are many benefits to installing Epoxy flooring in your home or residential space such as:
- Easy to keep clean & maintain.
- Extremely durable.
- Extremely safe as it is slip resistant, shock resistant and much smoother than concrete.
- Polished and clean look.
- Design friendly with a range of colours & styles available.
The only downside to Epoxy flooring is how difficult it is to do a DIY installation. You really should consider hiring a professional like Signature Substrates to do your flooring.
