Epoxy flooring is a type of surface coating that will protect a concrete floor from constant wear and tear. Epoxy is made from a combination of liquid hardening chemicals and liquid polymer resin. Once these two are combined they are poured over an existing flooring or base material in order to create a protective coating. Although epoxy flooring is generally a concrete floor it can also be used on floors made of wood. You can even have a floor that is made entirely from epoxy.
