Epoxy flooring is a reliable and highly durable surface perfect for residential, commercial, and industrial properties. A blend of equal parts of epoxy resin and polyamine hardener applied over concrete slabs create a high-performing, seamless, and tough surface that is resistant to most types of damage. Epoxy coatings are easy to clean and maintain. It keeps oil stains, water beads, and dust on the surface, ready to be wiped or swept. It is resistant to chips, cracks, abrasion, extreme temperatures, and more. This coating is best used indoors because UV rays from the sun can cause the garage floor epoxy material to discolor.
Epoxy Floor Coating Installation Process
An epoxy flooring is really fast and easy to install but it would require a skilled installer to do it. Epoxy can be quite difficult to handle as it cures fast once blended. Here is a brief look at how this tough coating is installed on garage floors, basements, commercial flooring, and more:
Step 1: The slab must be porous enough for the epoxy to adhere properly. The surface must be cleaned and sanded, if old coatings or finishes exist.
Step 2: The resin and hardener are mixed together and prepped for installation before it starts to harden and becomes more difficult to manage.
Step 3: The first layer is poured on the slab and spread throughout with a roller brush.
Step 4: When the first one has dried, the second layer is installed. Micro paint chips can be added to this layer to customize the design, acquiring a terrazzo or granite look.
Step 5: A finishing coat is applied to keep the paint chips in place. If the floor requires a more textured surface, a sealer with fine abrasives can be added to make it more slip-resistant.
