Epoxy floor coatings are considered to be the perfect long term investment for garage floors. The coating acts as a protective layer for the floor and saves it from the damage caused by oil or grease spills and stains.
If you have just bought a new home, built a garage, or are looking to make renovations, consider investing in epoxy coatings. Here are some facts about epoxy floor coatings that can help you realize why they are considered as the ideal coating for garage floors!
Epoxy coatings are impermeable, which means you wouldn't ever have to worry about oil spills and stains once they're installed. Epoxy resin molecules form series of cross linked chains that are tangled with each other, making them impermeable to water and other liquid intrusions. This means there will be less chances of corrosion in your flooring and when you're working on metallic materials, they will remain resistant to rust for a longer period of time. This prevents the floor from damage or wear and tear on an extremely long term basis.
We're in the 21st century, and technology has reached new heights in building construction and development. Today, you have access to various epoxy systems, including hybrid epoxy systems (mixed with other materials), epoxy amine systems, and even highly adhesive epoxy systems. The options are plentiful and each has its advantages, so make a decision based off what's important to you. For instance, if you decide to get epoxy amine system, the floor will offer greater adhesion.
Compared to other surface coating materials, epoxy can be applied to different surface materials, including steel, wood, marble, and so on. This makes it highly suitable for different types of flooring. On top of that, epoxy coatings are known for being fire resistant to a certain degree. When epoxy coatings are exposed to heat, their molecules expand to protect the surface material from damage.
