What is Epoxy Mortar Flooring?
There are a number of mortar systems that can be used for surfacing and resurfacing purposes. One of the most useful is Epoxy Mortar, which is a unique blend of aggregates and polymer resins that can be used to patch or resurface concrete floors.
Epoxy Mortar is ideal for industrial purposes for several reasons:
- A ¼ inch layer of epoxy mortar has a higher level of impact and abrasion resistance than a six inch concrete slab
- Can withstand the abuse of a wide range of chemicals, acids, alkalies, fatty greases, salts and solvents
- Does not allow for the growth of fungus or bacteria
- Minimizes dirt and chemical penetration
- Resists temperature extremes
- Prevents skidding
These properties make Epoxy Mortar an ideal method for repairing damaged concrete floors and sealing new concrete floors.

How is Epoxy Mortar Applied?
The application of Epoxy Mortar is simple and cost-effective. Epoxy mortar can be troweled directly onto concrete floors without the prior application of a bonding agent. It can also be used to patch holes in existing concrete floors. It is also possible to power trowel Epoxy Mortar, to cover extensive areas.
Where can Epoxy Mortar be Used?
In general, Epoxy Mortar can be used anywhere where concrete floors have damage that is between 3/16 and ¼ inches in depth.
Epoxy Mortar can be applied in many areas, including:
- Heavy traffic areas
- Areas with a lot of forklift traffic
- Areas where heavy manufacturing is carried out
- Locker rooms
- Animal care centers
- Service areas
- Areas that are exposed to acids, grease, oil, animal fats and food surfaces, and require frequent wash-downs
- Places that require a non-skid surface
There are also specific blends of Epoxy Mortar that have been developed for specific applications:
Acid-resistant blend can be used in areas that are regularly exposed to higher levels of acid and caustic chemicals.
Food processors blend is better at resisting thermal shock as well as hot water and steam.
Freezer form can be used in applications as low as 25 degree F.
Arctic form can be used in applications at temperatures below zero F.
The existence of these blends shows that Epoxy Mortar is a highly customizable product that can be used in a wide range of applications, and that can be used in extreme environments where most products would not be able to function. Epoxy Mortar can also be customized to meet the color schemes of the areas where they are applied, so the aesthetics of these areas can remain unchanged.
Epoxy Mortar is the ideal product for many industrial uses because it is highly customizable, can withstand a range of environmental conditions, is easy to apply and is a cost effective way of restoring or creating a barrier on new concrete floors.
