Epoxy is one of the products used by Surfacex to create a solid, durable and esthetically pleasing coating for concrete floors.

This material has become increasingly popular as a low-maintenance floor covering for commercial and industrial applications.

About Epoxy

Polyepoxide, more commonly called epoxy, is a chemical compound that has been around since the 1940s. This compound is most frequently used in construction as a glue or paint. When exposed to heat or a catalyst, the epoxy resin hardens irreversibly. As a result, it is used to coat surfaces to make a long-lasting floor covering with a great look.


  • Extremely durable
  • Resistant to water, oil, gas and many other chemical products
  • Stands up to heavy traffic as well as commercial and industrial use
  • Long lasting, waterproof and seamless
  • Certified by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency
  • Solvent-free, so no strong odour

For Surfacex, the choice is obvious: Epoxy forms a strong bond to concrete, is resistant to corrosive chemicals, easy to clean and dust free, making it ideal for large surfaces in industrial and commercial spaces, as well as many other uses.
