Every concrete floor is different, and even within a single facility, it might be necessary to install several types of floor coating products, depending on the diverse performance requirements. Even the concrete slabs themselves may present different composition and characteristics from room to room. Regardless of some manufacturers’ claims, no one resin floor type can do it all. Following are the major types of resin-based floors and epoxy flooring, along with their characteristics.

Epoxy Concrete Flooring Systems

Epoxy is one of the most widely known materials among floor coating resins, and is one of the most broadly utilized in the concrete flooring industry. As a concrete covering and protector, appropriately-selected epoxy floor coatings can help preserve the structural integrity of a floor slab and safeguard facility investment.

Cementitious Urethane Mortar Flooring

Our USDA approved, antimicrobial cementitious urethane flooring offers the combination of versatility and strength that many challenging environments rely on. Particularly popular in commercial kitchens and food and beverage processing facilities, our urethane cements and coating systems lend themselves well to a variety of industrial, commercial and institutional floor coating applications.

MMA Acrylic Flooring

For applications where time is of the essence and you need a resilient, seamless and low-maintenance floor, Florock’s acrylic MMA flooring is the solution you’re looking for. FloroCryl MMA (methyl methacrylate) industrial acrylic coating for concrete flooring is an exceptionally versatile material, making it ideal for industrial, commercial and institutional concrete flooring.

Thin film Urethane Floor Coatings

When you need your flooring to have some of the best chemical, stain and abrasion resistance available, our urethane floor coating systems are the answer. For a high performance topcoat, the array of unique benefits offered by our thin film urethanes is hard to beat.

Formulated to withstand the damaging effects of harsh solvents and a broad spectrum of chemicals, our thin film urethanes are highly effective topcoats that provide lasting protection against a wide variety of problematic substances without compromising aesthetics. This outstanding selection of high performance urethanes can be used in solid-colored, stand-alone systems over compatible Florock primers or as protective, clear finish coats over our selection of decorative concrete flooring

Polyaspartic Floor Finishes

You don’t always have the time or the ability to shut down your facility—not even for critical maintenance like floor installation. Institutions like schools and universities, 24-hour hospitals and public safety facilities, and even retail and grocery stores sometimes need to get back onto their new floor in a matter of hours. When timing is critical, and especially when air management is not possible, Florospartic polyspartic floor coating is the way to go. With its excellent resistance to chemicals and abrasion as well as its fast, very low-odor curing, this flooring gives you the high performance floor finish you need, when you need it.

Each of these resinous epoxy flooring and other polymer floor finishing systems furnishes the end user with a unique set of performance and aesthetic characteristics. Occasionally a single type of resin chemistry is used to coat an industrial, commercial or institutional floor. More commonly, however, several resin systems are installed in layers to provide optimal properties in a customized flooring solution.
