Garage Floor Epoxy
Understanding garage floor epoxy may need to be clarified. Contrary to popular belief, it does not paint directly onto the flooring surface itself - instead, latex-acrylic paints with added epoxy have to be applied, and these latex paints are commonly known as epoxy as they contain some form of durability added for extra longevity - these latex-acrylic paints may or may not have actual epoxy for increased longevity - though many refer to them as such when discussing their application on floors.
Epoxy is a thermosetting polymer compound created from two parts - an epoxide hardener and polyamine resin - mixed as sealant and coating to the concrete surface.
Epoxy flooring cures much differently from paint in that a chemical reaction occurs instantly when two ingredients are mixed together, triggering an exothermic cure process and producing strong microscopic structures that make epoxy stronger than paint and more durable ever. With proper preparation, epoxy can adhere to virtually all surfaces.
