Epoxy is basically a thermosetting resin used chiefly in strong adhesives and coatings and laminates. Epoxy floorings are often used on floors because of their reputation for toughness and durability from wear and chemicals. Epoxy flooring or Epoxy Floor Paint have excellent outstanding chemical resistance, durability, low porosity & strong bond strength. Hence it is applied on floors to save it from wear and chemicals. Epoxy is a thermosetting resin, which is used in adhesives, coatings and as a finish cover over repaired or patched concrete to provide an attractive texture and uniform finish. Industrial Epoxy Flooring, monolithic epoxy flooring is available in choice of colors.
Better protective coatings are available but not as common, field applied, brush-on, roll-on, or trowel-on coatings. Floor epoxy coating consists of a ‘base' and a ‘curing' agent. The two nents are mixed in a certain ratio. A chemical reaction occurs between the two parts generating heat (Exothermic Reaction) and hardening the mixture into an inert, hard ‘plastic'. Often concrete epoxy coating are top coated with latex or urethanes that will retain their color and attractive gloss. Epoxy Flooring are ideal for restoring eroded concrete and for use in high traffic and severe condition areas. Epoxy resin flooring creates a strong, dense surface at a fraction of the cost of slab replacement
