Concrete Epoxy Underlays and Overlays

Foundations for Excellence

Elevate and Enhance from Groundwork to Glossy Finish

Concrete underlays and overlays are specialized solutions designed to provide a strong foundation and surface finish to industrial floors. Using these techniques, businesses can achieve surfaces that are both durable and aesthetically pleasing, ensuring their facilities are up to the task and look the part.

What is Concrete Underlays
and Overlays Epoxy?

Concrete underlays provide a solid, level foundation onto which final floor finishes can be applied, ensuring an even and smooth surface. Overlays, on the other hand, are applied over existing floors to renew or enhance them, often incorporating materials like epoxy for added strength and finish. Together, they offer a comprehensive solution for industrial flooring, fortifying the surface from the ground up.

Benefits of Concrete Underlays with Epoxy

  • Enhanced Adhesion
    Concrete underlays create a strong bond between the substrate and epoxy, ensuring better adhesion and a longer-lasting finish.
  • Smooth Surface
    Underlays provide a level and smooth foundation, minimizing surface imperfections and creating an even canvas for the epoxy application.
  • Crack Prevention
    Underlays help prevent cracks in the concrete from transferring to the epoxy layer, maintaining a seamless and flawless appearance.
  • Moisture Protection
    Underlays act as a barrier, preventing moisture from affecting the epoxy's integrity and ensuring its durability over time.
  • Improved Longevity
    By reinforcing the base, underlays contribute to the overall longevity and resilience of the epoxy-coated surface.

Advantages of Concrete Overlays with Epoxy

  • Surface Renewal
    Concrete overlays provide a cost-effective solution to rejuvenate old or damaged concrete surfaces, giving them a fresh and modern appearance.
  • Versatile Designs
    Overlays offer the flexibility to incorporate various designs, colors, and textures, allowing for creative customization that complements epoxy coatings.
  • Cost Efficiency
    Overlays eliminate the need for extensive concrete removal, saving on time and costs associated with traditional renovation methods.
  • Quick Installation
    Applying overlays is a faster process compared to pouring new concrete, minimizing disruptions and allowing for quicker space utilization.
  • Restored Functionality
    Overlays cover up stains, cracks, and imperfections, restoring the functionality of the concrete while enhancing its aesthetic appeal.
  • Seamless Integration
    Combining overlays with epoxy results in a cohesive surface that seamlessly combines the benefits of both materials.

    Before starting, a thorough examination of the site is done to understand its condition and requirements.
  • Step 2: Surface Preparation
    Existing surfaces are cleaned, and any damages are repaired to ensure optimal adhesion of the underlay or overlay.
  • Step 3: Underlay Application
    A layer of concrete is poured and smoothed to provide a solid foundation for further treatments or finishes.
  • Step 4: Overlay Application
    Depending on the requirements, an overlay, often mixed with epoxy, is spread across the surface, ensuring even distribution and smoothness.
  • Step 5: Curing & Finishing
    The newly laid surface is allowed to cure, then polished or finished as per client specifications.
