Yes, an epoxy floor is very strong and durable, but can be damaged by mechanical force or if the substrate or concrete floor below is damaged. Dragging a heavy object with steel legs across it, for example, would be damaging. An epoxy floor can succumb to scratching like ordinary concrete is but properly looked after it can be exceedingly durable and will last many years looking beautiful.

Yes. Epoxy flooring can be applied to floor surfaces of patios, sidewalks, breezeways, porches and steps. Driveways and pool surrounds are also popular for epoxy installations.

TLG Epoxy Coatings Is the Epoxy floor slippery?

We can use a flake floor system that makes the floor no more slippery than standard concrete when wet. A flake system floor gives a texture feel to it and is normally no more slippery than regular concrete when wet. With a smooth solid colour we can also add slip resistant additives to the topcoats that makes the floor less slippery.
