What is Epoxy?
It is common for many to regard an epoxy coating as regular floor paint. Even though an epoxy coating is applied in the same manner as regular floor paint, they are chemically distinct from each other.
Epoxy flooring is a resinous flooring system that is protective and self leveling. The concrete needs to be grinded in order to adhere properly. The reason is that the concrete has to be porous. Epoxy consists of resins and hardeners. When properly mixed the resin reacts to the harder creating a chemical bond with one another and the concrete floor.
The chemical reaction between the resin and hardener produces a stiff plastic-like material. Epoxy is durable, will not deteriorate and bonds extremely well with the concrete surface.
