Epoxy flooring; It is an application made for decorative appearance and
protection of concrete surfaces. Robust, decorative, harmless to human health,
physical resistance is high because it is a very demanding system in the field
of epoxy flooring.
What are the advantages of epoxy flooring?
- Prevents dusting
- It is antibacterial,
- It has waterproof insulation feature,
- Provides ease of use of vehicles such as pallets and forklifts,
- Non-slippery surface is obtained,
Creates a hygienic environment.
The word epoxy means sharp asit
on Ep “and“ oxy ”on the
word Ep sharp / acidic.. Russian chemist Prileschajev was discovered by olefins
in the early 1900s. In 1930, the German scientist P. Schlack applied for
patenting high molecular weight polyamines by reacting amines with epoxide mixtures
containing more than one epoxide group. The patent is described as the reaction
of epoxide mixtures of Epichlorohydrin and Bisphenol A.
Epoxy; Resistant to acids, water and alkalis. It does not lose its
resistance over time. The epoxy adhesive filled into the crack in the structure
transforms the discontinuity environment created by the crack into a continuous
state, connects both sides of the crack continuously along the crack and thus
prevents stress deposits. Since epoxy and glass or carbon fiber have excellent
mechanical strength, they are used in marine, aerospace and aerospace
Generally, two-component epoxies, like other thermoset plastics, switch
from liquid to solid state after a certain period of time and cure within 1-2
weeks to reach the final hard state.
It can also be used as an epoxy paint or primer. It is applied as a
floor covering in many places such as food production facilities,
pharmaceutical factories, warehouses, power plants, loading and unloading
areas, service areas, production facilities and parking lots.
Advantages of Epoxy
Epoxy has a wide range of colors, has anti-bacterial properties,
aesthetic, monolithic appearance, chemical mechanical strength gives positive
results, non-slip and impermeability is an ideal solution when desired;
polyepoxide is a synthetic resin which hardens and cures when it reacts
chemically with a hardener or catalyst agent. Available in many products, each
option of epoxy is produced and offered for separate floor and wall applications.
Usage areas; pharmaceutical factories, hospitals, operating theaters, food
industry facilities and heavy industry structures, sports fields, squash halls,
hotels, cold stores, drinking water and waste water tanks, stores, offices and
all areas of production.
Creating a strong and permanent bond with reinforced concrete
Excellent resistance to aggressive chemicals in a wide range
Providing a precise solution to penetration of liquids, increasing
toughness, durability and flexibility and impact and abrasion resistance,
Hygienic and easy to clean surface supply,
Increasing resistance to cracking,
Providing low coating thickness,
Rapid applicability and curing to ensure minimal inhibition of work.
Advantages of Epoxy Floor Coating
* Epoxy Floor Coatings
* Gives decorative appearance to the floor.
* Easy to wipe and clean.
* Very good adherence to the old surface.
* Suitable for pedestrian, forklift and vehicle traffic.

Epoxy is a product group which is generally used for protection, repair
and decorative appearance of concrete surfaces by forming a particle coating
plane. Because of these features, in a very wide area; It is used with
increasing demand for manufacturing durable, decorative, sanitary, chemical and
physical strengths and surfaces which are harmless to human health both in
application and in later life. The building sector's need to turn to more
scientific and technological methods day by day imposes the chance and
necessity of the products that are produced and applied with specialized
scientific and technical staff to become more widespread and prepare the ground
for them. In this context, epoxy product group is one of the “modern” building
materials that will be recognized, used and loved in the future.
