What You Should Know About Epoxy Paint
Consumers often link the word epoxy with decorative garage floors. Consequently, many people think that a coat of epoxy will satisfy their desire to have a long lasting, easy to clean, high shine garage floor. Long-lasting garage floors do start with an epoxy base, but if you stop there, you’ll soon be frustrated by the lack of shine and effort required to keep it clean.
To craft a lasting product, you absolutely need to apply a complete epoxy system to your floor. This means an epoxy base followed by a polyurethane seal coat. Both coatings (the epoxy and the polyurethane) should be color coated. Epoxy exposed to the sun will fade and deteriorate over time without the seal coat. The polyurethane topcoat provides the chemical- and stain-resistance that epoxy does not.
Combined, these two products will provide a resilient, squeaky clean garage floor. For even more shine, a clear polyurethane can be applied over the color coat of polyurethane.
If you are looking to create the garage floor of your dreams, the Epoxy Chip System wins the award hands down.
