Benefits of Garage Epoxy Floor Coating
Garage is steadily turning into more than a mere space where you park your car. Now-a-days, with the multiple perks of epoxy garage floor coating, it has become one of the most preferred choices for garage floor coating.
What Is Garage Floor Epoxy?
There is much confusion related to the garage epoxy floor coating. First of all, a garage epoxy coating is not any paint but a latex type acrylic product. There are paints that contain a small quantity of epoxy mixed into them to make them more durable compared to the regular paint. But even after that it remains to be paint! Such kind of paints is called epoxy paints.
Epoxy is a kind of thermosetting resin, which is used as a coating. Epoxy is made by mixing Epoxide resin and polyamine hardener in 1:1 ratio. The polyamine hardener acts as a catalyst, thus giving strength to the epoxy.
When the above two chemical components are mixed together, a chemical reaction called exothermic curing process takes place. This process gives rise to cross-linked, closely bonded polymer structures that make epoxy powerful, durable, and strong. This makes epoxy different from the regular standard paint with a much thicker texture, which bonds strongly to the surface.
Benefits of Commercial Epoxy Floor Coatings for Concrete
1.Epoxy floor coating has slowly risen to popularity because of its quality, and is considered as the best coating for garage floors. The epoxy coating gives a nice look, has a thick and hardened application and lasts year after year because of its durable quality and nature. It is resilient to chipping, impacts, chemicals, surface abrasion, and stains.
2.Being thick in consistency, epoxy coating works wonder to cover up minor abrasions like small cracks or flaws on the floor. Being a topical solution, it is dust-proof. In a garage, most of the dust accumulates from the shedding of the cement floor. Such dusty powder can be avoided where there is regular traffic, which kicks off the dust that can accumulate on storage items, tool benches, cars etc.
3.Epoxy is also resistant to moisture. This feature is great for those who stay in snowy regions. The moisture resistant metallic epoxy pigments are very friendly for cleaning up of road salts and icy brines, which get collected on the garage floors during winter time. All you need is water and mild soap to clean up the dirt from epoxy floors. For dry climates, where it tends to accumulate dust, a sweep with a mop is enough to keep epoxy floor shining.
