What are Epoxy Coatings?
Epoxy coatings are based on a combination of resins and hardeners that are mixed prior to application. When mixed together, the resin and hardener chemically react to produce a hard, chemical and solvent resistant finish. It is the specific selection and combination of the epoxy component and the hardener component that determines the final characteristics and suitability of the epoxy coating for a given environment. Epoxy coatings are so strong that they’re often used in the most demanding environments such as industrial environments, hospitals, or sports facilities. Epoxy coatings resistance to high levels of wear and tear, making it the most long-lasting flooring options.
Epoxy floor coating will give any commercial or residential property’s floor a showroom shine and aesthetic that is hard to obtain with other coating solutions. What makes epoxy floor coatings one of the best floor coating out there?

Epoxy Coatings vs. Epoxy Paints (Home Improvement Kits) for Garage Floors
Epoxy paints which you will usually find in your home improvement store or local paint store are paints which were blended with epoxy resin and referred to as a one part epoxy paint. This is not the same as an epoxy coating which are two component and have a very high percentage epoxy solids.
Generally we use a 100% solids epoxy coating which is all epoxy with no fillers or solvents. The percentage of solids mean how much of the epoxy product will be left on the actual floor after the curing process has taken place. The greater the percentage solids, the thicker the layer of protection will be left when cured.
Most of the DIY kits that you find in your home improvement store are a very low solids amount, 10%-20% solids. When you apply these kits and they cure you are left with a very thin coat, versus our 100% solids applied at the same rate per gallon once cured will be 5x-10x thicker. Other major advantages to using 100% solids epoxy coating versus epoxy paint is hot tire resistance. Once you pull out a vehicle with hot tires on a DIY Kit applied to a garage floor, the paint will stick to the tire and pull right off of the concrete substrate.

What are the benefits of epoxy flooring?
Epoxy garage flooring is a versatile system that has many uses and benefits. While some people think epoxy is just used to produce a high-gloss finish, it can also add slip resistance, durability, chemical resistance, and a low-maintenance surface. Epoxy flooring combines aesthetics with durability and safety. It can be used in garages, inside houses, business, and patios. It’s a cost-effective way to transform a dusty, boring garage into a functional workshop or showroom that withstand vehicular traffic.
How Is the Floor Prepped Prior to the Epoxy?
Properly preparing your concrete slab for epoxy is the secret to a long-lasting and beautiful floor. How your floor needs to be prepped will depend on the condition of your concrete. Your concrete floor will first be grinned or shot blasted to remove the cap of the concrete and to get get rid of any containments. Any cracks or chips will be filled or repaired prior to applying an epoxy coating.
How Long Does an Epoxy Flooring Job Usually Take?
Most garage floors are completed in 1-2 days. After the last coat is applied the floor must be allowed to cure for 12 hrs before foot traffic. Vehicles and heavy objects should be kept off the floor for 72 hours. It takes about 7 days for epoxy to fully cure. During this time, avoid washing or scrubbing the floor.
When Wet, Is the Floor Slippery? Can I Avoid This?
One of the most common questions about epoxy is whether it creates a slippery surface. No one wants a garage floor that is so slippery it becomes a safety hazard. An epoxy floor with chips offers grip, but it will can still be slippery when wet. We recommend adding a skid-resistant additive to your epoxy before application. These granules, usually made from aluminum oxide, add traction.
