Benefits of Epoxy Garage Floor Coating

Epoxy garage flooring is tough, durable and appealing surface. Epoxy offers protection for your garage floor increasing both function and beauty. It is ideal for the garage where there is huge human and vehicular traffic.

It is important to distinguish that the epoxy coatings are not a form of paint. Epoxy is a thermosetting resin applied similarly to paint. Epoxy is made of polyamine hardener which is a catalyst and provides strength. The other difference is that epoxy cures through an exothermic process compared to paint which dries. Curing leads to the creation of polymer structures that give it strength and durability and allows proper binding to a prepared surface.

Garage Perfect outlines some of the benefits of epoxy garage floor coating include:

Epoxy floors are dust-free and easy to clean off dirt, brine and road salts, and spillages with water and soap.

E

The surface is moisture resistant and chemical resistant.

E

The use of slip-resistant aggregate for the topcoat will make the epoxy floor slip-resistant and non-skid.

E

Chemical resistant and stain resistant which makes it good for garage floor where there’s a high probability of spilled gasoline, oil, brake fluid, and other chemicals. These chemicals can be wiped easily even after they have been left to sit for long periods.

Having seen some of the benefits of epoxy garage floor coatings, it is important to take good care of the flooring to reap the benefits over the long term. Avoid some activities such as welding which damages the floor with burn marks. Moisture from beneath the epoxy coating will cause delamination and impact the lifespan of the floor.

Professionally installed commercial-grade epoxy garage floor coatings carry warranties of 15 years or more for defects. The installation of 100% solids epoxy is a good investment in the long term.
