Embedding Objects in Epoxy Floors

Why has epoxy flooring become the fastest growing sector of the flooring industry? There are many reasons, but arguably the most prominent, is the shift to more decorative applications. Epoxy used to be available in a handful of colors and when applied, would look like a painted floor. This was great if you needed industrial strength to handle forklift traffic in your warehouse and looks were secondary, but not so great if you wanted an extremely durable floor for your living room that also looks nice. As the epoxy flooring industry evolved many more decorative applications were developed. Now you can get the same industrial strength floor used in a warehouse or airplane hangar with a beautiful custom finish.
