Epoxy floor removal

Specialists in grinding and surface preparation for the restoration of epoxy floorings. Floor refurbishment through surface treatment for polished concrete.



We will remove an ageing epoxy surface by grinding it away without recourse to any toxic chemical solvents. This is a precursor to a treatment with our patented BECOSAN® system, where we harden and seal the concrete floor to minimise future damage.


So your concrete floor was coated with epoxy 5 years ago. But it hasn’t aged well. The floor is covered with unsightly scuff marks and the epoxy coating is beginning to peel away. Time to replace it. Or is it?

We believe there is a real alternative to epoxy coating the Becosan System. The Becosan System does not peel, does not wear, does not need replacing and costs much less than an epoxy coating.

However, before the application of the Becosan system we must first remove the Epoxy coating. At Becosan we do not use chemicals or solvents in the removal process. The epoxy coating is ground away using industrial grinding equipment to leave a clean concrete surface.

As a customer you are now at a cross roads. Do you re-apply the epoxy coating (yes, the one that let you down so badly last time) or do you step into the future with a BECOSAN® floor.

To help you decide we will treat a small area of your floor with the BECOSAN® System.

You will then be able to see first hand how the BECOSAN floor is smarter than an epoxy floor. You will see that it is easier to clean than an epoxy floor, how much more resistant to tyre marks than an epoxy floor and how it is resistant to liquid spillage.

If you have an epoxy floor that is reaching the end of its life or you have a new floor that requires treatment thencontact us.

The epoxy surface is not suitable for all types of industry. It is common to find surfaces that initially looked very good, but over time end up with multiple patches due to the continuous repairs they need.

These patches are almost always applied without proper surface preparation. For this reason repairs are continuous, without obtaining a lasting result and compromising the concrete slab to its deterioration.

Therefore, it is generally necessary to perform the complete removal of epoxy coating on all concrete floors that have had some type of epoxy coating.

The removal eliminates all the pre-existing floor coating as well as its imperfections. It also prepares the floor for subsequent polishing with the BECOSAN® system.

The procedure uses specially manufactured abrasives, ensuring good results in surface preparation.


When carrying out renovation or repair work on a concrete floor, especially those requiring the replacement of epoxy flooring, it is necessary to remove all existing coating. This task is carried out with concrete grinding machines by means of a grinding process.

Unlike a traditional concrete floor, it is not enough to repair damaged areas of the floor. The procedure for these works is different.

If the epoxy coating is replaced only in the damaged areas, more and more cracks will continue to appear. Therefore we always recommend replacing the entire epoxy floor.


Epoxy floors have several disadvantages. Either because of its faulty application, due to some crack in the floor or other factors that have not been taken into account at the time of applying the resin.

Because of the high cost of the resin itself, the minimum thicknesses are not always respected.

The thickness of an epoxy floor is, in most cases, the reason why the surface does not have a long life span according to the manufacturer’s specifications.

Poor preparation of the concrete floor

Floor preparation is an expensive task. It takes place every time a resin floor needs to be coated. The old epoxy coating has to be removed with a grinding machine with special abrasives before re-coating a floor.

This procedure generates a considerable amount of toxic waste. If the surface is not properly prepared, the coating will not adhere properly and will lead to delamination in a short time.

Presence of humidity

Epoxy is excellent as a waterproofing agent against almost any liquid that can be spilled on the floor surface.

Despite this, humidity is a major enemy. Moisture present in a concrete slab cannot evaporate through the surface. For this reason, it locates the place with the least resistance, the joints and cracks in the floor.

Those are areas where the epoxy resin usually starts to crack, because the support to which it is adhered is wet.

Contains pollutants

Epoxy resins are toxic materials and very harmful to health. Applicators usually have short application periods to avoid respiratory problems.

In addition, the long drying time is another factor that can harm business activities.

The toxicity of resins is another factor that must be taken into account. It is harmful to both the applicators and the people in the treated area that has not yet dried.

They are difficult to clean

In warehouses, logistics platforms or surfaces in general with high vehicle traffic, cleaning and maintenance tasks become difficult to perform with very unsatisfactory results.

Tire marks leave marks on the epoxy floor and cannot be removed. In addition, small repairs can paralyse activities in the affected area for several days.
