What Are the Different Types of Epoxy Flooring Systems?
Do you need a flooring system that is rugged enough to withstand heavy traffic conditions while still maintaining a high-gloss shine? Epoxy flooring might be what you need. Epoxy flooring solutions are designed to resist moisture intrusion, chemical damage, stains, microbes, and day-to-day wear-and-tear. We use products that are VOC-compliant and 100 percent solids to give you safe, sturdy, seamless flooring solutions that are attractive and suitable for nearly any environment.
Several types of epoxy floor systems are available, including:
Solid Epoxy Flooring
Solid epoxy offers incredible flexibility combined with matchless chemical resistance and superior slip-resistance.
You can use solid epoxy flooring in Miami in virtually any environment, including:
- • Retail and office floors

- • Car dealerships and airplane hangars
- • Laboratory floors
- • Manufacturing floors
Made with 100-percent solids, solid epoxy can be mixed with aggregate for additional durability or traction or applied with a high-gloss finish for aesthetics and enhanced light-reflective properties.

Chip Epoxy Floors
As with the other types of epoxy flooring, chip floors consist of multiple layers of 100 percent solids epoxy that are combined with vinyl flakes and sealed with UV- and chemical-resistant topcoats to create a terrazzo-like aesthetic.
The moisture-, chemical-, and slip-resistance of chip epoxy floors make them a great choice in:
• Healthcare facilities

Chip epoxy is strong and slip-resistant for durability and safety and can be used in virtually any environment. They are especially desirable in commercial environments thanks to their easy maintenance.
