Types of Epoxy flooring flakes

Epoxy flakes are simply coloured vinyl chips used to create the decorative finish on an Epoxy floor. They also add texture and grip, making it a practical solution for a range of applications.

At London Linings, our Epoxy flooring experts offer four standard Epoxy flooring solutions.
