Circumstances around the globe are making the garage more than a parking spot and a storage area. The benefits of garage floor epoxy demonstrate why it is a premier choice for garage flooring today.
Useful for both residential and commercial applications, epoxy makes any garage or shop floor glisten like a showroom floor Choose from a wide variety of solids, hues, custom colors, and color flake blends that suit any style. For the homeowner who is not familiar with an epoxy flooring system, here are some facts and benefits.
What Is Epoxy?
The homeowner needs to understand that epoxy is not a paint product. Paint specially formulated for application on garage floors is a latex acrylic product. Epoxy paint, or one-part epoxy paint, contains a small amount of epoxy additive in the formulation, which makes it more durable than regular paint. Paint, even paint with an epoxy component, is not nearly as long-lasting and durable as epoxy.
Epoxy, a thermosetting resin, is applied as a coating and forms by combining one part epoxide resin with one part polyamine hardener. The hardener, functioning as a catalyst, gives epoxy its almost superpower strength.
Epoxy cures and hardens; paint dries. Combining epoxy and the catalytic hardener initiates a chemical reaction that results in a coating that is much thicker than paint and that bonds to a properly prepared surface.
Benefits of a Garage Floor Epoxy Coating
1. Holds up under punishing conditions
When epoxy cures and hardens, it creates a coating that is very durable and resilient to chipping, impacts, stains, surface abrasion, and damage from chemical spills. Dropping a wrench on the floor will not chip or crack the concrete.
2. Hides imperfections
The thick epoxy coating effectively hides minor imperfections and blemishes, including flaws and small cracks in the concrete. Epoxy, a topical sealer, is anti-dusting. Much garage dust comes from powder shed by a cement floor. Foot traffic on bare concrete disturbs this dusty powder, which then collects on cars, workbenches, and items stored in the garage. This dust also finds its way into the house.
3. Resists moisture
The epoxy coating naturally resists moisture. This benefit is great for homes in snowy climates. Icy brines and road salts that collect on the garage floor during the winter are easily cleaned up with a solution of mild soap and water. A dust mop or soft broom makes short work of dust and debris when the floor is dry.
4. Creates a non-skid surface when slip-resistant aggregate is added
Some epoxy surfaces can be slippery when they become wet, but in drier climates, this situation is not an issue. To achieve extra traction when the epoxy surface is wet, slip-resistant aggregate can be added to the final coat.
5. Great for garage mechanics and hobby enthusiasts
Epoxy coatings are ideal for the needs of home mechanics and hobbyists. Oil, brake and transmission fluids, anti-freeze, gasoline, and other caustic car chemicals can easily be wiped up from the chemical- and stain-resistant surface. Jacks, jack stands, and rolling toolboxes will not damage an epoxy floor coating. Also, adding light-reflective materials in the epoxy floor system can brighten up the garage environment.
6. Customize the garage into a unique workspace
An epoxy floor system can transform a drab, dirty garage into a unique workspace like no other in the neighborhood. The wide selection of colors and textures can suit any taste or need.
