Epoxy formulations have been an important aspect of the building industry for the past many years now. For floor applications, epoxy floor coatings specifically are commonly used, and it is important to know about some facts of this important coating material.
The key behind high performing epoxy coatings are the epoxy resins which form as the core materials in formulating quality epoxy based primers, top coats and sealants. The epoxy floor coatings will perform well on floor finishes, as protective coats, as fire retardants, as a waterproofing coat, and contribute to damage resistance paints, all because of these resins.
Be informed that epoxy coatings can be applied in many types of surface, such as concrete, steel and other surfaces. Depending on the kind of material used for the substrate, specific coating system may be dictated, but not in the case of epoxy floor coatings where application is possible in nearly all kinds of surfaces.
Epoxy resin molecules are almost not penetrable because its compounds of bisphenol A and epichlorohydrin organochlorine/epoxide are cross linked, and the chemistry leads to a floor coating that is highly water, chemical or air intrusion resistance, thereby the coating has …
