Epoxy floor coating has many practical applications for businesses, facilities, warehouses, and more. Whether you need durable flooring for your heavy operations, coating that is sanitary and easy-to-clean, or a decorative centerpiece for a room, epoxy is your solution.
At Epoxy Coating Specialists (ECS), we have experience in a wide variety of industries, delivering sustainable flooring solutions that make a positive impact on your operations. Keep reading to learn more about practical applications for epoxy floor coating, some myths and misconceptions, and the ECS difference.
Factories & facilities
No matter the type of goods you’re producing, a factory or production facility needs to be easy to clean and able to withstand heavy operations, all the way down to the flooring. You may even need specialized flooring that is resistant to intense temperatures. ECS can make all of this possible with tailored epoxy floor coating.
Our epoxy floor coating for facilities and factories is durable, hygienic, and slip-resistant; it’s a seamless solution for animal facilities, healthcare and pharmaceutical buildings, food and beverage plants, and much more.
After an on-site consultation with one of our project managers, ECS will customize a flooring plan for your facility that addresses your unique pain points and meets the needs of your operation, including sloped flooring for efficient drainage.
Sloped flooring installed by ECS allows for effective drainage for your facility, without having to completely remove your existing concrete. Using epoxy, our technicians can connect your flooring to custom drainage systems to combat puddles, wet spots, bacteria buildup, and slip and fall injuries within your facility.
Achieving sloped flooring with epoxy coating is also a much more cost and time-effective solution as opposed to complete removal and replacement of your current concrete foundation.
Epoxy floor coating can be a functional and beautiful solution for aviation hangars, automotive dealerships, and other display facilities. ECS can build floor systems able to withstand heavy weight like airplanes and cars, and also slip and scuff resistant, so your display facility looks polished and professional.
Industrial & manufacturing
We understand how important a safe work environment is for industrial and manufacturing facilities. Experts from ECS can help increase the safety and efficiency of your facility with an epoxy floor coating that’s both durable and abrasion-resistant—while also following plant-specific compliance guidelines.
Rooms that house and operate heavy machinery, like tool cribs or loading docks, present unique challenges and require especially abrasion-resistant flooring solutions. Additionally, you need flooring materials that are insusceptible to deterioration from oils, grease, and chemicals.
Urethane cement for industrial flooring
Urethane cement overlay is a durable industrial flooring option. The cement overlay mixture is actually a blend of cement, other aggregates, and polymer resin, which increases performance and adaptability. The mixture can be overlaid as thinly as a grain of salt, or multiple inches thick to meet the needs of your facility.
Our expert team tailors your urethane cement flooring to the specifications of your building, providing you with dependable, heavy-duty flooring that is tolerant to any level of wear.
Electrical / breaker rooms
Electrical and breaker rooms, or places that contain high-voltage electric currents, are a prime example of places that can benefit from epoxy coating. In addition to providing slip-resistance, durability, and aesthetic features, epoxy floor coating can prevent harmful electric discharges.
Static control flooring
Static control or conductive flooring essentially functions as a conductive rod, absorbing electricity from the room and removing it safely. This protects your equipment and your employees from damage and injury. ECS is capable of expertly installing this type of EDS flooring for facilities that operate heavy electrical equipment or house explosive materials.
Lobbies, hallways, & corridors
For applications like lobbies, hallways, and corridors, you need more than just a great floor. You need something that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Decorative epoxy floor coating can be a sustainable, customizable solution. How do you want to present your business? We have options. Add a logo to your lobby floor, outline a hallway, or direct traffic with arrows and designs.
Flaked Epoxy Floors
Beautiful and low-maintenance, flaked epoxy flooring is an excellent option for schools, offices, or businesses. Colorful acrylic chips blended into the epoxy are coated with a clear layer over top to achieve a seamless, decorative finish. Flaked epoxy floors are easy to clean, and the perfect way to add both personality and durability to your flooring.
Stocked Flake Colors
For further customization, we offer a catalog of different flaked flooring color options. Match your flaked flooring to your school colors, business logo, or facility decor.
Decorative Quartz Flooring
Quartz flooring adds an impressive design element to any building. Typically laid at less than a quarter inch thickness, it is best suited for light duty activity and pedestrian traffic like schools or offices. Quartz flooring is customizable in color and in slip resistance. Results are vibrant and can be achieved in record time when you use a quality installer like the skilled team at Epoxy Coating Specialists.
Kitchens and bathrooms
Kitchens and bathrooms are subject to wear and tear just like anywhere else in your facility. Plus, tile and grout are harder to clean and absorb gross bacteria and substances.
Floors and walls in these areas need special protection and sanitization. Epoxy or urethane cement coating allows for easier and more thorough cleaning, and it’s also resistant to bathroom and kitchen-specific concerns like urine, soap, water, intense heat, and grease.
Epoxy for walls
That’s right, epoxy coating doesn’t have to be just for your floors. Epoxy wall glaze can be a smart and effective way to protect and extend the life of your walls.
Our epoxy and urethane wall systems are resistant to heat, UV light, and water, preventing excess moisture from absorbing into your walls and causing deterioration over time. This is especially important for protection and easy cleaning of the walls behind or near:
- Wash bays
- And more

Misconceptions about epoxy floor coating
Epoxy floor coating is not the standard for many industries, although it can be an extremely impactful flooring solution. If you’re considering epoxy flooring, be sure to steer clear of these common misconceptions:
While epoxy floor coating may be more expensive than traditional flooring options like wood or vinyl, it’s important to weigh the cost against replacing your floor later down the line. You may pay more up front, but epoxy coating will last longer and hold up better, making it well-worth the investment. Additionally, not every flooring company works the same. You want trained professionals with years of experience.
You can install it on your own
More than skill, installing epoxy takes proper prep work, necessary equipment, and high-grade products in order to be successful. Choosing a DIY kit usually means you get what you pay for. Trust a professional like ECS to install your epoxy floor coating to make sure you’re getting a tailored, durable solution that meets the needs of your facility.
You can achieve the same results with paint
While paint and epoxy may look similar when applied over concrete, they are fundamentally different materials that will wear and tear much differently over time. Unlike paint, epoxy floor coating is a resinous material that is resistant to moisture and acts as a protective barrier for the concrete underneath. No paint is able to do the same.
It’s hard to maintain
Epoxy is a resinous material that hardens when installed and is resistant to moisture and damage. This makes it easy to clean and unlikely to chip, warp, or crack, as other flooring might. Our epoxy flooring solutions are built to last, saving you money and maintenance down the line.
