Epoxy flooring is used extensively in the building sector. First of all, you have to decide what purpose to use. The most important feature that emphasizes epoxies is the high adhesion capacity to other materials. In the construction sector, epoxy was first used to repair capillary cracks in the concrete and to bond concrete reinforcements.
The idea of using epoxin as a floor covering has been caused by the adverse effects of physical and chemical formations on heavy industrial works, machines, vehicles and cranes that all loads of the production system sit on industrial flooring.
Heavy working conditions in industrial structures, abrasions on the surface, splinters, chemical liquids are very frequent on the surface, resulting in deterioration and disintegration. In order to overcome these drawbacks, it is considered to apply a fine (0.5 – 5 mm) protection layer on the concrete floor. With this idea, the use of epoxy on industrial floors has begun. This process followed the use of epoxin in other places.
The plastics used in industrial applications are generally synthetic polymers. The polymers are divided into two classes, thermoplastic and thermoset, on a processing basis. Epoxy enters thermoset polymer group. Therefore, epoxy can be called polymer-based plastic.
Nowadays, epoxy flooring is applied in many house balconies, even in the garage and even on the kitchen floor. Its aesthetic appearance, easy cleaning, dust tolerance, wide color choice, odorless, chemical resistance is the most obvious choice.
I am confident that in the near future we will be confronted in many areas of our lives.
