Penny Floor Resin & Sealer

A penny floor is a beautiful addition to any home. It adds a sense of character and charm, impressing guests and adding value to a property. It also gives you a chance to create a unique element within your home which showcases your artistic skills.

Penny floor resin, also called penny floor epoxy or penny floor epoxy resin, is a clear sealer which is applied to penny floors. Made from a combination of polymer resins and hardeners it creates an extremely smooth and shiny surface that highlights the quality of your pennies and brightens a space.

When it comes to epoxy coatings, there are two types of products to choose from:

  • Solvent based epoxy floor coatings
    The original type of epoxy hardener. Made from a solvent-based hardener with resin. Unfortunately, there are some downsides to using this type of epoxy including the emission of toxic fumes during application.
  • Water-based epoxy
    Delivers the same waterproof glossy finish as a solvent based epoxy, but it is 100% non-toxic. This is the most commonly used epoxy floor coating.

At CPRL, we stock several water-based products which are UV stable, non-toxic and ideal for creating coin cast flooring or penny floor designs. The most popular option for these types of floors is CPR 819 – Crystal Clear Epoxy Resin – UV Stable .

CPR 819 is designed for thick applications of epoxy where objects are encased. It is an extremely clear high-gloss epoxy which will highlight all of the features of your pennies. Its excellent UV resistance means it is suitable for areas which are exposed to a lot of sunlight.

This product is non-toxic and extremely safe to use. It adheres well to both concrete and stonework surfaces which makes application simple. Once dry, it provides excellent chemical resistance. It is a low odour product, which makes it suitable for penny floors installed in kitchens and small enclosed areas like bathrooms.
