Epoxy Resin Versus Interlocking Tiles

Why Flexi-Tile PVC Interlocking Tiles Beat Epoxy Resin Flooring… Faster, Easier, Tougher

When it comes to industrial flooring solutions, both Flexi-Tile PVC interlocking tiles and epoxy resin flooring offer advantages. However, Flexi-Tile is the smarter choice due to its focus on efficiency, durability and minimal disruption. Here’s a breakdown of why Flexi-Tile is worth the consideration for your next flooring project:

Faster Installation, Less Downtime:


Our interlocking tiles offer quick, user-friendly installation process, eliminating the need for extensive subfloor preparation and professional expertise. This reduces downtime for your business, allowing you to resume operations immediately following installation.

Epoxy Resin: 

Epoxy resin flooring necessitates a lengthy curing period, often extending up to six weeks. This disrupts your workflow and increases the risk of imperfections during curing.

Unmatched Durability for Long-Term Value:


Our industrial-strength tiles are built to withstand heavy traffic from forklifts, pallet trucks and constant footfall. They are resistant to wear and tear, moisture and impact, so no cracking and bubbling – which is the common issues with epoxy. We back this up with a comprehensive 10-year wear guarantee, and with proper care, our tiles can last for over 20 years.

Epoxy Resin: 

Epoxy resin flooring can be susceptible to moisture damage and may require repairs over time due to cracking or bubbling.

Effortless Installation:


Our innovative interlocking system allows for effortless installation, even on uneven or slightly damaged concrete surfaces.

Epoxy Resin: 

Epoxy resin flooring often requires meticulous subfloor preparation, adding extra time and complexity to the project.

Safety and Worker Comfort:


Our tiles feature anti-slip properties, promoting a safer workplace, even in wet or oily environments. Additionally, the anti-fatigue properties provide additional comfort for those standing for extended periods.

Epoxy Resin: 

Epoxy resin flooring may not offer the same level of slip resistance as Flexi-Tile, especially in wet conditions.

Environmentally Responsible Choice:


We manufacture our tiles in an ISO 14001 Certified facility, demonstrating our commitment to environmental responsibility.

Epoxy Resin: 

Some epoxy resin products may contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can contribute to indoor air quality concerns.


Flexi-Tile PVC interlocking tiles offer a faster, more efficient and more durable flooring solution compared to epoxy resin. With minimal disruption to your workflow, exceptional long-term performance, and a focus on safety and comfort, Flexi-Tile is the smarter choice for your industrial flooring needs.
