Why is it important to coat my garage floor with an Epoxy Sealer?
If you don’t protect your concrete floors, you’re going to have to deal with a host of problems. Your floors will be stained from oils and other fluids, and chemicals like rock salt will do damage as well. Even snow can corrode your garage floor. When you coat your floors in an epoxy sealer, your concrete will be more durable. The right epoxy system will protect it from wear and tear. With epoxy floors, you’ll have something that’s more durable than normal concrete. Since your floors will be so resilient, oils and other fluids won’t be able to penetrate their services.
What makes epoxy superior to other types of sealants?
There are two components that go into epoxy. When these components are combined, you’re left with something that has a very powerful performance. The thing that sets epoxy apart from other types of coatings, like paint, is that epoxy is harder and more resilient than these coatings.
What is the meaning of ‘100% Solids’?
If an epoxy is labelled as 100% solids, that’s in reference to the percentage of solids in the coating. There’s no water or solvent base diluting your epoxy. It really is 100% solids. This is one of the things that makes epoxy so durable. While there is some product shrinkage associated with products that have a water base, you won’t have that issue with epoxy. It’s unbeatable when it comes to both resilience and adhesion.
What are the benefits of applying epoxy?
When you mix the two components in epoxy, you wind up with a floor sealer that’s 100% solids. It’s far more resilient than other types of solvents and sealants on the market. It’s simple to maintain, resistant to chemicals, and incredibly sturdy.
Why is epoxy so effective?
When the components in epoxy are mixed, it causes a chemical reaction known as polymerisation. This causes the formerly liquid mixture to turn into a film that’s hard, resistant to chemicals, and very sturdy.
Is it safe to use epoxy indoors?
There are next to no volatile organic compounds contained in the epoxy flooring system that is used. The fumes from the epoxy aren’t harmful either. Because of this, our epoxy system can be safely used in garages and in other indoor locations, like wine cellars or laundry rooms.
Is it possible to use epoxy to repair holes or cracks within the surface of concrete?
Our epoxy product is self-levelling by design. That stated we use an epoxy resin paste to fill in any larger holes or cracks. We find this to be the best way to patch concrete.
Can epoxy be placed over existing paints or coatings?
We advise against using epoxy on surfaces that have already been coated. The coating that is present will keep the epoxy from properly bonding to the surface. However, we have grinders that are able to strip away previous coatings so that the epoxy can be placed on a clean and clear surface.
Does temperature have an impact on epoxy application?
If the weather is very hot or very cold, it can influence epoxy as it is applied. If temperatures are over 29°C, the polymeric chemical reaction will be faster than normal, which will make the coating tacky and harder to apply. If temperatures are less than 13°C, the reaction will be slower, which means the cure time will be longer.
Is it possible to apply a non-slip finish to floors that have been coated with epoxy?
If desired, we can place a non-slip finish on your epoxy floors. With that said, we usually only apply this finish to floors that get very wet. This finish will make the floor rougher, but it will be extremely slip-resistant.
Can floors coated with epoxy be scratched?
It is possible to scratch epoxy if you drag extremely heavy objects over it. That stated, under most circumstances, your epoxy shouldn’t scratch.
Will hot tyres have an impact on epoxy?
If your tyres are hot after an ordinary drive, it won’t have an impact on your epoxy floors.
Will I have to re-coat my floors with epoxy annually?
No. Because our epoxy floors are so resilient, you can expect them to last for a number of years.
How will sunshine impact epoxy floors?
Ultraviolet radiation, which comes from sunlight, can cause the majority of coatings to fade. However, our epoxy floors have a UV protector applied to them, which means sunshine won’t be able to cause much damage.
