Is epoxy stronger than concrete?

It depends on the specific application and use, but generally speaking, epoxy is considered to be stronger than concrete by 6 times!

Epoxy is a type of synthetic resin that is typically used as a resurfacer or a patch. It has a relatively high tensile strength and can resist impact, chemicals, heat and freezing temperatures . This makes it an excellent material for floor repairs on warehouse floors.

Concrete, on the other hand, is a mixture of cement, sand, and aggregates such as gravel and crushed stone. While it is very strong in compression and can support a lot of weight, it can become very brittle and may crack or fail under tension and varying temperatures.

Our epoxy flooring products can be used to resurface or patch concrete floors by bonding to the surface and adding a layer of strength from 1/8" to 1/16" in depth. 

Overall, the choice of epoxy flooring to repair concrete is a great choice for many reasons. Visit our catalog today to decide which epoxy is best to repair your concrete floors with!
