Epoxy flooring, other known as resinous flooring, is highly durable, customizable, sustainable, and decorative for any surface. What appeals most to epoxy flooring is it’s resistance to high levels of wear and tear, making it the most long-lasting flooring options.
Are There Different Kinds of Garage Coatings?
The best floor epoxies are solid based; with Aliphatic 100% solids being the best type. What does that mean? It means that with 100% solids you are getting 100% paint so that whatever you put down is what you get. With epoxies that are not 100% solids, whatever percentage lower than 100% is the percent of the paint that will evaporate away as it dries. The part that evaporates is either solvents in the case of solids paints or water in the case of water based epoxy paints. For example, if an epoxy is 50% solids it means that 50% of the coating you apply will evaporate away as it dries. The lower the percentage of solids the lower the quality is a good rule of thumb, with water based paints being the lowest quality. The exceptions are Primers & Topcoats, Primers usually have a lower percentage of solids because they are made thinner to kind of soak into the pores of the concrete, Topcoats should have Urethane which displaces a percentage of solids. So it’s ok for primers & topcoats to be lower in solids, just try not to use water based products. If you see a WB in the product name or part number it’s water based. Also one final note high percentage solids epoxies are not as good as 100% solids epoxies. Never have been never will be. Same with Cycloaliphatic Epoxies which are a cost saving Hybrid Epoxy that wear prematurely and yellow.
100% solids epoxy is not just for hiding blemishes it’s to make sure you’re purchasing the highest grade epoxy possible, plus the highest build possible to avoid hot tire lifting when using chips. Polyurea coatings are similar to lower percentage solids epoxies with similar performance issues. We classify these as glorified concrete sealers.
If you are like most people you most likely have never dealt with epoxy paints before and simply consider it just another category of paint like a semi-gloss or an enamel. Placing epoxy flooring in the same category as conventional garage floor paints is like saying a Volkswagen Beetle is the same as a Ferrari because they are both cars. An epoxy floor coating is usually a two part coating that you mix together rather than a single component. An epoxy floor coating will adhere to your garage floor or any concrete floor for that matter way better than any conventional oil based, water or enamel paint, think epoxy glue type adhesion vs duct tape adhesion. Your floor will have a much more dramatic look to it with a super high gloss finish no conventional paint can match, it will also be waterproof, mold & mildew proof. A good epoxy floor coating when cured is just about stain proof and cleaning it is similar to cleaning your Teflon pan. Our epoxy coatings are available in many different colors with custom colors available for larger size floors. We also have decorative color flakes that can be added into the epoxy for a granite type look.
