Benefits of a cast floor?

Are you unsure if you want an epoxy cast floor in your space? Quickly read the benefits below and get inspired.

1. Low maintenance and very hygienic

One of the main benefits of an epoxy floor is that you clean it very easily! This is because an epoxy cast floor is completely seamless. This means that no dirt can get into seams or joints and that you can easily wipe the floor with a cloth, Swiffer or mop. This makes maintaining an epoxy floor many times easier than, say, a carpet, tile or parquet floor.

In addition, an epoxy cast floor is also the perfect floor in the catering, AGF or meat industry. After all, the use of epoxy floor coating is approved for HACCP regulations.

2. Epoxy floors are waterproof & chemical resistant

An epoxy cast floor is completely water- and liquid-proof. An epoxy casting floor is also resistant to various chemicals, oils and greases. Because the floor is water- and liquid-proof, it is also possible to apply a cast floor in a "wet" room such as a bathroom or cellar. In addition, liquids do not soak into the floor, so you will not get (grease) stains (unlike other types of flooring).

The chemical resistance also makes an epoxy floor very suitable as a floor for industrial companies that work a lot with chemical processes and aggressive cleaning agents.

3. An epoxy cast floor is durable

A third important reason to choose an epoxy cast floor is the fact that the floor is impact-resistant. Scratches are easily polished or sanded away and the floor requires little maintenance. This also makes the floor suitable for industrial premises.

4. Suitable for any surface (many application possibilities)

Epoxy flooring is suitable for many different applications. It has already been mentioned in the above benefits that an epoxy cast floor is waterproof, chemical resistant and easy to maintain. On top of that, an epoxy cast floor can carry heavy machinery and vehicles with ease.

Combined with the right preparation, an epoxy floor can be laid on virtually any surface! These properties make an epoxy floor suitable for the following applications:

  • Living room floor.
  • Bathroom floor.
  • Garage floor.
  • Company floor (office, shed, workshop, etc).
  • Showroom/shop/kitchen.
  • Basement.

An epoxy cast floor can be applied in almost any RAL colour so you can choose what colour floor you want.

5. Easy to construct
