Naked concrete isn’t very pretty, nor is it indestructible. Left untreated, the porous material can suffer from harsh conditions such as heavy traffic, abrasion and exposure to chemical spills, cleaners and moisture.
An epoxy floor coating not only dresses up that drab surface, it provides an extra layer of durable, long-lasting protection against wear and tear while simplifying maintenance and cleanup and improving skid resistance.
An epoxy floor is highly resistant to all sorts of fluids and chemicals, such as transmission fluid and motor oil — making it the floor coating of choice for garages and automotive workspaces — as well as bleach and grease, which keeps epoxy in favor for kitchens and restaurants.
The smooth, nonporous surface also presents an unwelcoming environment to viruses and bacteria and is remarkably easy to clean and sanitize.
Epoxy’s functional advantages are matched by the aesthetic appeal of its smooth, glossy shine.
You can choose a muted or vibrant solid color to fit your decor needs, or opt for vinyl or quartz flakes in an array of color combinations that will add dimension, texture and visual interest.
For the ultimate in looks and durability, as a final step we give the acrylic a topcoat of clear polyaspartic.
Epoxy works wonders on a variety of interior and exterior surfaces:
- Pool decks
- Retail stores
