Epoxy is a mixture of resin and hardener that when combined together chemically react to form a rigid plastic-like material. It resists degradation and bonds well to substrate materials. Epoxy flooring is often used as a coating over concrete floors which are rough, porous, and anti-shock resistant. Epoxy withstands rugged wear and tear in industrial settings. It is slip-resistant, which is ideal for commercial uses.
The durability of epoxy is an asset but especially with the versatility of various colors and patterns which make it the perfect cmmercial and retail flooring material. Shopping centers, hotels, and offices have foot traffic that requires wear-resistant flooring. A diverse customer base of children, elderly, and wheelchair-bound citizens is also a concern. The flooring in a commercial space needs to be not only durable but safe to prevent falls. Epoxy flooring is stain, scuff, and scratch-resistant and can be topped with a slip-resistant texture to improve safety. The flooring creates an ambient look and requires minimal nightly cleaning maintenance.
Because of machinery, foot traffic, and spill and stain potential, the only realistic industrial flooring options are concrete or epoxy. Concrete is hard, slippery, bland looking, stains easily, absorbs moisture, and is porous. Epoxy is the exact opposite of all those things. The resin compound is softer, slip-resistant, glossy and attractive, resistant to stains, sealed from moisture and easy to clean. Epoxy coating is self-leveling which creates a smooth surface, important in an industrial setting where forktrucks should avoid crevices and machinery must sit level.
Epoxy works well as a residential flooring application. Epoxy can take the place of carpet, tile, vinyl, and hardwood floors in the home without a noticeable loss in return on investment. Residential epoxy uses are suitable for high-end modern homes where the glossy coating meshes well or heavy traffic households that need extra durability because of kids and pets. Color options blend with any existing décor and the moisture resistant properties make epoxy the ideal surface for kitchens, bathrooms, pool decks, or exterior patios and balconies.
When finishing off a garage by sheeting walls, insulating, and adding heating & cooling there is one area that continues to look out of place – the floor. Moisture and substrate materials limit the garage flooring options. Painting the floor of a garage floor doesn't necessarily provide a protective coating and it's a job that needs to be repeated annually. Tile is easily damaged and bubbles as the foundation shifts. Epoxy bonds to the concrete, filling gaps and creating a smooth, moisture resistant surface. An epoxy floor can easily be wiped clean of oil and fluid spills with no risk of staining. The end application provides a professional, finished look to the garage.
Epoxy is recommended for any type of flooring application, mostly because the compound is versatile and customizable depending on needs. Some of the different types of epoxy REDRHINO provides:
Do You Use Durable Epoxy Flooring Materials?
At REDRHINO we use a durable resin and hardener that creates a bond with the substrate. This creates an impenetrable surface that is waterproof and impact-resistant. Part of the durability of the epoxy comes from proper preparation of the subfloor which is why only professional installation is recommended.

The thing about epoxy is that it's such a long lasting, attractive, and wear resistant material that we haven't been dealt with a whole lot of unhappy customers. That being said we stand by our work and our materials 100%. If you are not happy with your epoxy flooring contact us to make proper rehabilitation.

At RedRhino, we are working hard every day for our reputation as your number one choice for epoxy flooring. As part of that commitment, we think it's important to stand behind our products and our work.
You may notice that some of our competitors claim to give "lifetime" guarantees on flooring. But, once you read the fine print, you find that their promises don't really stand up to their marketing. Look a little further into the reviews, and you'll find that you can't be sure they'll stand behind their flooring for more than a few years… if they are even still in business.
Using warranties from epoxy flooring manufacturers can be difficult, as well. Although most do guarantee their products for a certain amount of time, those guarantees depend on very precise (and occasionally, unrealistic) application settings involving temperature, humidity, concrete surface preparation, etc.
We understand the frustration that customers feel when dealing with these issues, which is why we offer a more straightforward warranty package than anyone in our industry. We can do this because we understand the intricacies of epoxy flooring, and make sure that our teams are trained professionally. They won't apply resin until your floor is ready, and won't rush through the job because they know you need it for years to come.
