Epoxy resin systems are chemical mixtures containing the epoxy resin itself and a curing agent that hardens when the two are mixed together. The mixing results in epoxy, a very strong and resilient plastic material that stands up to heavy use without taking damage.
Epoxy is generally a safe material to have in your home. After it has cured, it won’t cause harm unless it’s sanded, cut or burned. Doing those things without proper ventilation and protective gear can cause irritation to the eyes, skin, and respiratory system. That’s why we recommend you never try and put down your own epoxy flooring. Our team has the training and equipment to undertake this task safely and expediently.
Epoxy Flooring Equipment
Our professional-grade equipment is designed to work on large spaces and tough surfaces. Our crew comes equipped with everything they need, including:
Diamond Floor Grinder. This machine is used to grind down the surface of concrete, existing epoxy, and other flooring to prepare it for the application of a new epoxy resin layer. It removes pits and irregularities from the surface by using diamond bits to grind it down. This leaves a smooth surface for the epoxy to adhere to.
Industrial-strength Vacuums. Our industrial-strength vacuums ensure that the workspace is free of dust, dirt and debris before we roll on the first layer of epoxy. This leaves you with a clean layer of flooring that will look great beneath the epoxy.
Floor Buffer. After the epoxy has dried completely, we use a commercial-grade floor buffer to polish it to a high-gloss finish. Floor buffers are similar to grinders, but instead of diamond bits, they use softer discs to shine the floor without damaging it.
New Era Epoxy and Flooring always follows the industry’s best practices for workplace safety. We take the time to protect our workers and your home by using proper ventilation, prompt cleanliness, and personal protective equipment on each job.
While epoxy is safe to be around once it has cured, mixing and applying it can cause respiratory irritation in the person installing it. We always make sure the workspace is well-ventilated with open doors and windows while we work. This also keeps fumes from building up and permeating surfaces in your home.
For safety’s sake, we never leave spills or dirty rags lying around. We use disposable cleaning materials when we can, and we bag them up quickly so they don’t exude fumes or make more of a mess. We are also careful to keep chemical containers tightly sealed when not in use.
Personal Protective Equipment. We take the safety of our crew very seriously and provide them with regulation personal protective equipment, including goggles; gloves; sleeves; coveralls; aprons; facial masks or respirators; and work boots or spiked shoes.
