The original Resincoat formula offers a long-lasting smooth, glossy finish at the highest possible quality. Our best-selling floor formula, this paint offers excellent resistance to heavy foot traffic and vehicles. Ideal for both DIY/home users and industrial users alike, the floor paint can be easily applied with the surface usable again within 24 hours.
Epoxy Garage Floor Paint is the number one choice for floor paint in the UK as it protects and seals whilst offering an attractive, decorative, professional finish. This product is part of the Resincoat High Build Range. Resincoat HB is a heavy-duty, solvent free epoxy floor coating, possessing exceptional abrasion and chemical resistance
Two coats of Resincoat HB Epoxy Garage Floor Paint can provide the equivalent of ten coats of conventional coatings containing solvent or water based epoxy products. Our floor paint is the perfect choice for your garage or car service centre as it is oil tolerant as well as being resistant to any other automotive fluid that would ruin standard paints
Before applying our garage floor paint we advise that you vacuum the area. Old paint finishes should be removed if flaking at all and if well bonded abraded sanded to create texture prior to applying the paint. Preparing the floor mechanically (shot blasting or grinding) is always advisable but if that is not possible our Etch and Clean is a good alternative

• For weak concrete floors prime with Resincoat Stabilising Primer
• For greasy floors with oil residue clean thoroughly scraping off any dust or dirt and prime with Resincoat Oil Tolerant Primer
DECORATIVE EPOXY FLOORING
Decorative flooring is a very broad category that can include just about any floor applied with the goal of improving aesthetics in mind.
For decorative epoxy flooring, coloured quartz floors, flake floors, glitter floors (like the stuff on party hats) or even solid-colour flooring with swirls were once the only ways to jazz things up. These days, decorative epoxy flooring has flourished through the use of metallic pigments and the seemingly unlimited effects they can create.
Customised and reproducible – while a few companies out there are doing some brilliant decorative epoxy floors, not all of them can deliver something just for you if a designer floor is what you’re after. Likewise, not every company can reproduce their designs either. If a large retail chain wanted the same floor in all of their stores, genuine reproducibility is something they’d need to find.
Designs that work – when choosing a decorative epoxy floor, it helps to know what does and doesn’t work. At the front of the queue are the glossy plain white or black decorative epoxy floors because both have some drawbacks. For white, they’re difficult to do well and keep clean as they show every small defect, speck of dirt, scuff etc.; for black it’s pretty much the same story and they also tend to act like a giant mirror, which makes them unsuitable for change rooms and the like. Both of these finishes can benefit greatly if you add something to “break it up”, whether it’s a semi-gloss finish, textured finish or a hint of metallic pigment
Timing – a trap many fall into with decorative epoxy floors is the timing, especially in a fit out or renovation scenario. It’s tricky stuff organising all the trades within a tight schedule, however installing a decorative epoxy floor too early in the piece can be a big mistake. The movement of heavy equipment, dropped tools and abrasive dust can damage any new floor no matter what it is. If you want a decorative epoxy floor to look its best come opening day, it must be the last piece of the puzzle rather than the first.
TILE VS HARDWOOD VS EPOXY FLOOR COATING
Heard good things about epoxy flooring, but don’t know as much about it as classic tile or hardwood? Choosing the right flooring takes many factors into account, from durability to cost and more. Let’s dive into a comparison of a few popular options: tile, hardwood and epoxy coating.
Tile is a great option for kitchens and bathrooms. It’s waterproof, scratch-resistant and quite easy to clean. That being said, there are downsides to tile you should know. Tile can break or crack if you drop anything heavy, so you have to be careful handling heavy pots in the kitchen. Additionally, although it’s easy to clean up spills from tile, the grout between tiles gets dirty quick – and the darkened colour can be a hassle to get out.
Hardwood is a classic choice that brings a sleek or elegant look to a room, making it a good choice for living rooms and offices. It can last for decades and be made to look like new if kept in good shape as the years go on. The issue with hardwood is it is easily scratched and damaged by water. Hardwood may look smooth at first, but any dings become eyesores quick.
Epoxy flooring is an excellent option for sleek, durable, cost-effective floors. Unlike other flooring options, epoxy floors are water-resistant, easy to clean, and not easily chipped or cracked. It is great for garages, as it can support heavy loads like cars or machinery. Epoxy coating is also non-toxic and doesn’t need harsh chemicals to clean.
So, what’s the best overall option?
It all depends on the style you are going for when choosing your flooring – but if you want a sleek, simple design, epoxy flooring is the best overall option. Unlike hardwood, epoxy flooring is water-resistant, which works well for kitchens and bathrooms. And unlike tile flooring, epoxy flooring isn’t quick to crack or break when heavy objects are dropped on it.
How Durable is Epoxy Flooring and Is It Scratch Resistant?
Whether it’s for your home or business, you want flooring that is durable and can stand up to whatever is thrown its way – sometimes literally. Maybe you have a garage floor that you want to keep nice and new looking or you have a showroom at your business where the aesthetics are crucial to keeping your clients interested.
But Is It Scratch Resistant?
One of the most important factors of flooring is knowing whether or not it is resistant to scratches. An epoxy coating will last longer than pretty much any other type of coating and epoxy coating by itself is scratch resistant due to the composition of its ingredients.
How Durable Is It?
Epoxy flooring is one of the most durable applications available. It is resistant to chemicals, stains, cracks, and scratches. Not only that, but it is the perfect choice where heavy equipment is used because along with everything else – it is impact resistant. Imagine being in your garage and dropping a heavy tool on your floor or continuously parking heavy automobiles or equipment on your flooring surface.
The Benefits Are Many
The advantages of choosing epoxy flooring are vast. It is a safer option for your flooring and a greener choice as well. One of the major benefits though is the ease of maintenance. Just water alone will clean it easily and even for major spills, adding a bit of ammonia to the water should suffice.
Last but not least, the price of installing epoxy flooring is extremely competitive when compared to other types of flooring and best of all, it will last for years. If it is taken care of properly, you can expect your flooring to last at least 5 to 10 years, sometimes even more.
