8-REASONS EPOXY FLOORING IS A MUST HAVE!
FIRST OFF, WHAT IS EPOXY?
Epoxy floor coatings consist of a resin that is applied as a coating. Epoxy is usually one-part epoxide resin with one-part polyamine hardener, as well as some additional additives. Epoxies cure and harden through a chemical reaction and does not ‘dry’ like paint dries. The polyamine hardener is what gives the epoxy flooring strength and durability.
Epoxy makes a fantastic floor coating for garages, man caves, basements, stairs, warehouses, office space, and even patios!.

Epoxy floors are very durable against dirt, scratches, chipping, flaking, chemicals, grease, stains, and moisture. They are extremely tough against flooring impacts such as tools dropping and surface abrasions.
Epoxy floors are resistant to almost everything, including brake fluids, gasoline, oil, anti-freeze, transmission fluid, the list goes on. It’s no wonder epoxy floors are so popular with mechanics and car enthusiasts. Not to mention, epoxy floor coatings are also water and heat resistant. Anything can be easily wiped up!
Epoxy coatings seal the floor making the floor long-lasting. It has a longer lifespan than tile, carpet, wood flooring, and concrete because of its resistance. When maintained appropriately, epoxy durability and appearance can last for 10-20 years without cracks, chipping, or need for replacement.
