Can epoxy flooring be installed over other flooring materials?   

Typically, epoxy is applied directly onto concrete. There are instances, however, where an alternative flooring product, system, or substrate might already be in place and removal is not necessary. Depending on the environment, epoxy flooring systems may be applied directly over materials such as plywood, various types of tile, alternative resinous systems, and cementitious products distinct from concrete.  

Is it OK to install epoxy floors over other resinous floors?   

Yes, however conducting a thorough assessment of the existing bond's quality and performance is crucial. When replacing an existing epoxy floor, it is imperative to determine the required level of preparation and remediation for the substrate.
