Let’s start by clearing up one thing right now about epoxy. Epoxy garage floor coatings are not paint. Paint for garage floors is a acrylic product. Some will have a small percentage of epoxy added to the mix to make it more durable, but it is still paint. These are known as epoxy paints or 1-part epoxy paint.
Epoxy is a thermo-setting resin that is applied as a coating. It is formed when you mix one part epoxide resin and one part polyamine hardener. The hardener is a catalyst and gives epoxy its strength. Epoxy creates a coating that is very durable and resilient to chipping, chemicals, stains, and surface abrasion. As a coating it’s also naturally moisture resistant. This is a great benefit for people who live in snowy climates. It makes for easy cleaning of ice and road salt that can collect on the floor during the winter months. Just a little mild soap and water is usually all it takes to make the floor shine like new again and if you live in Indiana you know all about ice water and salt dripping off the car during the winter months. Epoxy floor systems are a great investment all year long and Wagoners Painting in Fort Wayne is a great company to do the job. For more information or to get a free quote call today at (260) 750-4079.
