Epoxy Floor Coating

Epoxies are polymer materials that begin life as liquids and are converted to the solid polymers by a chemical reaction. An epoxy based polymer is mechanically strong, chemically resistant to degradation of the chemical elements in the solid form and highly adhesive during conversion from liquid to solid. There are a wide range of basic epoxy chemicals from which an epoxy system can be formulated.Epoxies are known for their excellent adhesion, chemical and heat resistance, good to excellent mechanical properties and very good electrical insulating properties. Almost any property can be modified.

There are different types of floor coatings, among them is the epoxy floor coating which is widely used on: – Industrial floors – Pharmaceuticals – Warehouses – Food & Brewages – Residential Garage – Basement floors – Restaurants & even office facilities. The epoxy basically contains three components; – The resin component which is a light, odor free and colorless – The other component is the hardener which is usually dark in color and has a strong smell – The filler component which is usually a of mixture of many chemicals blended together. With proper mixture and right amount, the combination will create a chemical reaction thereby producing a strong material guaranteed to last for a long time.
