Who uses epoxy floor coatings?
While epoxy flooring is most typically thought of in a garage environment, they are a great solution for a variety of situations where you need durable, seamless, low maintenance flooring that can withstand high traffic and heavy loads. Manufacturing facilities, chemical plants, hospitals, and office environments are all great candidates for an epoxy coating.
What exactly are epoxy floor coatings?
Epoxy floor coatings are actually made up of two parts, epoxy resin and a polyamine hardener, that are combined together to create a reaction which results in an incredibly durable product that makes it ideal for your concrete. This is a much different product and result than epoxy floor paint. Since the epoxy coating products start reacting when they are mixed, it’s crucial that the floor coating is applied in an efficient and time sensitive manner. The epoxy coating needs to be applied to your concrete in a controlled environment so that you get the best results after the epoxy cures.
How long do epoxy floors last?
An epoxy floor coating can last up to 30 years when they are installed properly. You won’t have to think of your floors again for years to come. Epoxy flooring over your concrete provides a great looking, durable floor that can withstand harsh chemicals and heavy loads all while providing a fantastic moisture barrier.
The key to a quality application of epoxy flooring is extensive preparation and meticulous cleaning. Concrete must be repaired and patched. Concrete also must be unsealed so that the floor coating will adhere properly to provide the best results. Following the manufacturers recommendations on proper curing times can also be confusing, and if not followed, it can affect the appearance and longevity of the floor.
Is epoxy good for floors?
Epoxy is a great option if you have unsealed concrete and want to increase the durability, safety, and longevity of your concrete floors. Concrete can be very slippery when it’s wet and is quite difficult to clean. Concrete is also prone to cracking from the freezing and thawing cycle. Epoxy floor coatings can provide a fantastic moisture barrier to prevent water from damaging your floor. For an added bonus, not only is epoxy easy to maintain and clean, but it can stand up to years of high traffic and heavy usage. Since you can customize the color and design pattern, it looks great, too!
Is epoxy floor coating the same as epoxy floor paints?
Epoxy flooring is not the same thing as epoxy floor paint, that is a different product all together. The names have been used interchangeably, unfortunately. Some people may go to a home improvement store and purchase epoxy paint to refinish a garage floor. They think they are getting true epoxy coatings, when in actuality they might be buying specialized acrylic products. The results from a home improvement store epoxy floor paint and a professionally installed epoxy floor are completely different. While the former might be okay for a low traffic residential garage, it won’t stand up to the rigors of commercial and industrial facilities.
Can you epoxy a wood floor?
An epoxy coating is meant to cover a semi-porous, unsealed surface like concrete.
What are the disadvantages of epoxy flooring?
Epoxy flooring is difficult to remove once it’s been applied - but you can place a different type of floor on top if you want, there’s no need to uninstall the floor and no material to remove. If not properly installed, the floors can chip or be slippery. With proper preparation and the right products, this issue is easily avoidable. Since epoxy has to cure, it can take several days to cure between coatings. You’ll have to wait a little longer to start using the floor, but the floor’s longevity is so much greater than tile or unfinished concrete.
How long does floor epoxy last?
Since resin can last a very long time, with proper maintenance, floor epoxy can last for up to 30 years.
