Epoxy Floor coatings many times have flakes or quartz or other materials that are broadcast within them. This can be very helpful to make the surface rough which gets rid of any risk of falling from a floor being to smooth or slippery. It also helps in cleaning the floor when it is wet. This new type of epoxy floor is being used in many different areas including hospitals and schools because it is antimicrobial as well.
