Can Epoxy Resin Pass Over Tiles?

Yes, you can put epoxy on the tile. If done correctly, placing epoxy on tile can be a quick and easy way to achieve attractive results. It will enable you to alter the look of your room without having to go through the hassle of replacing the old floor. So, can epoxies be applied over floor tiles? Many contractors will know that the simple answer is yes, but it doesn't always mean they should. There are some additional conditions and considerations that I always take into account before beginning.

These are some of them. The surfaces of the tiles are usually covered with a layer of glazing. Epoxy may not adhere properly to this glazing. Therefore, you should always sand and grind the surface until the tile glazing is removed.

The surface should look rough and scratched. I also recommend applying a low-viscosity epoxy primer that penetrates the surface of the tile. Some people may argue that this solution is quite expensive, as it involves adding 3-4 kg of epoxy per square meter, and that there are cheaper methods for covering tiles. Let me tell you that the cost of repairing a defective surface is much higher.

Epoxy resin

as a floor covering is becoming increasingly popular.

It's no surprise, as epoxy offers many advantages and even old tiles can be coated with epoxy resin. Our guide explains how you can apply synthetic resin to your tiles and what benefits it provides. The term “epoxy” can refer to a wide variety of substances, some of which are sealants or paints suitable for ceramic tile floors and others that are not. Ceramics do not have the right texture for epoxy coatings, and even if sanded, there are still adhesion and durability issues with tiles and grout. Some systems have light chemical resistance and, as with all resins, not all epoxies are created equal.
