Epoxy floor coating can be applied over many different materials, including steel, concrete, and wood. However, concrete is the best surface for laying epoxy floors.
Epoxy floors are durable and require very little maintenance. These is why many schools and companies with heavy floor traffic choose to cover their floors with epoxy flooring.
Epoxy floors with only one coat have a thicker layer of protection than if they were covered in several layers of ordinary latex or oil-based paint. Epoxy floor paint can also fill in smaller cracks in the concrete, and can help level the surface of the floor.
