HOW MUCH DOES AN EPOXY FLOOR COST?

There are a number of factors that will influence the cost of your epoxy flooring. Understanding what factors influence the cost of epoxy flooring projects can help you determine roughly how much your next flooring project will cost.

Several factors influence the price of fossilcote epoxy flooring. Here is a look at some of the factors Fossilcote may use to determine the price for clients looking  looking to have their epoxy flooring installed by Fossilcote.

Potential exposure to extreme temperatures

Certain work environments, such as those in processing plants or commercial kitchens, experience extreme changes in temperature. The epoxy flooring that is installed will need to be able to withstand such extreme changes, which will increase the cost of the project.

The type of epoxy flooring

Epoxy floor coating comes in a variety of colors and designs. Residential epoxy flooring can be done in neutral colors like grey, white, or clear. Metallic epoxy, flake epoxy and epoxy quartz can cost an arm and a leg because these are decorative coatings. They add a sparkle to your floor.

The current condition of your floor

Before you begin to consider the types of epoxy flooring available, you need to repair any damage to your flooring. This can cost a lot more both financially and in labour. If epoxy is being applied to older floors that have cracks, chips, or crumbling concrete, repairing these issues is required prior to applying epoxy. If the floor isn’t in good condition and needs to be sanded down and levelled, seal the potholes, repair the dents on the floor, then cost of epoxy installation will go higher.

The choice of epoxy color

Just like any other flooring, epoxy offers a vast selection of shades and tints. The color and design of epoxy flooring can be customized to any type of area. However, coloring and customizing epoxy floors will be a separate expense to the materials and labor. Epoxy comes in neutral colors that are much more economical than colored epoxy.

Before providing a price quote for a project Fossilcote Limited will conduct a site visit to assess the condition of your floor. Our professionals will also ask several questions to determine what your needs are when it comes to epoxy flooring. Using the information you provide, we will be able to provide you with a better understanding of how much your epoxy flooring project will cost.

Square footage:

The dimensions of your flooring project will determine how much epoxy you’ll need to purchase as well as any additional materials needed for the job. The larger the area needing epoxy requires additional materials, labor and time. If the room is 50’ x 75’, you would need enough epoxy to cover 3750 square feet.

There is more to the cost of epoxy flooring than just the material itself! Contact Fossilcote to learn more about what factors could influence the price of your next epoxy flooring project.

SMART COATINGS-What does smart Coating mean?

Fossilcote has now developed new environmentally safe coatings for corrosion protection. Fossilcote smart self-healing coatings protect metals and alloys against corrosion, in different technological applications due to releasing the active agents of the coat in a controllable manner for preventing cracks propagation in the protective coat.

These coatings possess passive matrix functionality and actively respond to changes in the local environment. Fossilcote Smart coatings are made of responsive materials containing unique chemical, physical, mechanical and electrical characteristics. These smart coating are responsive and interactive with the different environmental changes such as pressure, light, heat and chemical effeAdd a heading(1)

Fossilcote smart coatings are generally classified in the basis of preparation techniques, functional and reactive components and their uses and applications. Smart coatings have the following benefits: They are self-healing, self-cleaning, antimicrobial, self-assembling, electro-active, bio-active, photo-responsive, super-hydrophobic, eco-friendly, and anticorrosive in nature. In the process of protection of metallic substrates, Fossilcote smart coatings have multi tasks such as sensing, protection and healing.

The responsive materials in Fossilcote smart coatings contain neutral pH and have stable capsule shells. When corrosion occurs, the coatings result in a basic pH, which in turn causes the pH-sensitive shell to hydrolyze and break. The broken microcapsule releases the corrosion inhibitor contents, self-healing agents and the film-forming compounds to repair and protect the damaged area.

Smart coatings are ideal for use in medical, military, textile, transport, construction, electronics and other industries for protection against corrosion and abrasion, as well as other surface protection purposes.
