Epoxy is a type of thick polymer material somewhat like plastic. It is created by mixing different types of resins and hardeners, causing it to convert from a liquid to a solid state through a controlled chemical reaction. The reaction causes the liquid epoxy to solidify into a tough, durable, waterproof and chemically resistant floor covering. The viscosity of the epoxy floor coatings during the solidification process causes a secure bond to form between the epoxy and the underlying concrete flooring surface.
There are three major types of epoxy. Determining which to use will depend on the qualities desired for the finished floor covering. The epoxy types are solvent-borne epoxy, waterborne epoxy and solid epoxy. The thickest coating is the latter. There are also various ways of polishing the finished floors to obtain different looks and finishes. The application method is another feature that differentiates between the finished coverings.
Epoxy has some attractive quality which make it popular with home and business owners. It is durable and easy to maintain, easy to clean and easy to apply. The surface is waterproof and is slip, stain and dust resistant. It is also resistant to chemical spills. Epoxy flooring is easy on the budget, looks beautiful and comes in a variety of colors. It can be utilized on indoor or outdoor concrete surfaces and in a variety of residential and commercial venues.
