Epoxy Paint For Concrete Industrial Floors

Epoxy concrete floor paint is common in warehouses, garages, retail locations where superior wear and tear is expected. Another reason for selecting Epoxy floor paints are the variety of colours that can be created to compliment the surroundings.

Impact Resistant

Concrete epoxy paint is extremely strong and impact resistant. It is flexible as well as strong, meaning it won’t fracture, crack, or split if items are dropped or driven over the surface. Due to this strength, epoxy paint is commonly used in warehouses, garages, and auto repair shops.

Slip Resistance

Our water-based, two-part acrylic epoxy system provides a safe, slip-resistant surface, partially due to the lower sheen. If the area is expected to handle heavy traffic, consider using a 100% solids non-slip textured epoxy paint, which provides a textured surface for an extra level of protection. This will exceed UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) requirements. The additional textured surface is commonly used for platforms, ramps, machine shops, and marinas.

Water & Chemical Resistant

When dry, epoxy paint provides a seal that protects concrete from underlying ground water and from any water or liquid that gets spilled on the ground. Epoxy paint is also resistant to chemical spills. The chemicals will not soak into the paint or the substrate that it is covering, making for easy cleanup and protection for the substrate.

Fire Resistant

Any coating that slows or stops fire from spreading on a surface is a Fire Retardant coating. This is achieved mostly by the coating Intumescing or rising to give a protective insulating barrier between the flame source and the combustible substrate. The off-gassing of carbon dioxide keeps the oxygen, one of the fuels, away from the spreading flames. This is done through a variety of different types of systems and pigmentation or clear finishes.

Epoxy Paint for Metal

Many epoxy coatings are part of a system for coating metal surfaces. Epoxy topcoats should always be applied over a recommended anti-corrosive coating system or base. Marine coatings were developed for metal surfaces that are exposed to harsh environments. However, due to their toughness they are used in a wide range of industrial applications, including offshore structures, petrochemical facilities, bridges, pulp and paper mills, and by utility companies.

Marine Epoxy Paint

Common with any type of epoxy system, Marine Epoxy is subject to chalking and discoloration due to serve exterior UV exposure. The rate of these adverse effects will be dictated by the climatic conditions that the coating is exposed to. However, these extreme climate conditions have little adverse effect on the anti-corrosive or wearing properties of Marine Epoxy coatings. The effects will only be on the outer most reaches of the coating itself.

Level of sheen and surface finish is dependent on the application method utilized. Avoid using a mixture of application methods whenever possible. In most cases, two coats are recommended to give a uniform epoxy paint coating on metal.

Applications for epoxy paint on metal include Brush and/or Roller or Spray (Airless Spray, Pressure Pot or Conventional Air). Usually, there will be a specified film thickness and often more than one coat will be necessary to achieve the specified dry film thickness (DFT). The minimum application temperature is 10C or 50F.

Epoxy Paint For Wood

Our Protekor Epoxy system is commonly referred to as a wood petrifier. Our specially formulated Two Part Epoxies can be used to help to restore old buildings and/or their facades, like window trim. It is applied on Historic buildings to preserve the way they were constructed in their time period.

The use of a specially formulated, low viscosity, highly penetrative epoxy, which is commonly used for marine and aerospace coatings, can help to make the soft or ‘punky’ wood on window frame ledges strong and bring back an integral part of the original look of the building.

Epoxy Garage Paint for Great Floor Coatings

Epoxy is either applied as a single colour or as a ‘pour’ with other colours. Epoxy floors are common for serious and demanding applications because quartz sand or acrylic chips can be mixed in and applied under and above. Epoxy paint for garage floors yields an excellent adherent, chemical resistant and a long lasting, tough wearing surface that will be put to the test on a regular basis.

  • Available in 100% Solids Epoxy or Water-Based Epoxy, these two-component epoxy coatings require a predetermined Part A and Part B that must be mixed together just prior to application.
  • 100% Solids Epoxy has an immediate induction or mix in time.
  • Available in a variety of either clear, stock colours or custom colours.

If the preferred look is coloured quartz, the quartz epoxy is applied over a properly primed surface and then covered with a clear coat epoxy. The clear epoxy top coat locks in the quartz by preventing water penetration, chemicals and/or salts into the substrate below.

Epoxy Pool Paint

Epoxy coating for cement pools is a common application because the epoxy is resistant to water and chlorine/bromine or salts. It is also resistant to acids, chemical stains and algae. Epoxy swimming pool paint is formulated to adhere to concrete, as well as Steel and Fiberglass surfaces.

The surface once coated would emulate the look of a Bathtub. Bare concrete will need to be acid etched and neutralized. If you are redoing your pool, any peeling surfaces should be stripped chemically. Extra care must be taken when handling these types of corrosive products when dealing with epoxy paint for pools.

What is an Epoxy?

Epoxies are polymer materials that begin as liquids and are chemically changed into a solid. An epoxy-based polymer is mechanically strong, chemically resistant to degradation from chemical elements in the solid form, and highly adhesive during conversion from liquid to solid. There are a wide range of basic epoxy chemicals from which an epoxy coating system can be formulated.

What are epoxies?

Physically epoxy coating systems contain two components, resins and hardeners. The resin component is usually light, sometimes almost clear coloured, and almost odour free. Hardeners are usually darker and have a slight odour. When these two components are mixed, they will chemically bond together, and once the chemical reaction has finished, they will form a strong and rigid plastic like material.

What are epoxies used for?

Applications of epoxy-based materials are extensive and include coatings, adhesives and composite materials like carbon fibre and glass-reinforced plastic. There are even special epoxy coating formulations that offer increased chemical resistance, increased temperature resistance, and the ability to be applied underwater. Used for industrial uses for tough wearing cement floor coating or checker plated metal floor coatings, Chemical resistant applications in chemical or petrochemical plants, Marine coatings for their adhesion and wear properties and for Industrial, Aerospace and Marine coatings for Fire-retardancy.

How Expensive Is Epoxy Paint?

The best epoxies are normally relatively expensive, especially industrial-strength epoxies. If you find inexpensive industrial epoxies on the market, chances are they may have been “watered down” with either non-phenol or solvents. These diluted cheaper epoxies are lower performing epoxies and will not stand up to repeated use as well as true industrial strength epoxies. Businesses looking for ‘floor epoxies’ are advised to invest in an unaltered industrial strength floor coating and avoid diluted down epoxies. The consumer will ‘get what they pay for’.

Do You Have To Sand Epoxy Primer Before Painting?

Typically, no sanding or other type of abrasion would be required between coats of Epoxy topcoats or epoxy primers. If applied normally within 24 hours the coatings will still cross-link with one-another and will form a strong chemical bond. This is one of the benefits of Two-Part Epoxies.
