What is Epoxy?
An epoxy flooring system is made up of two components, resin and a hardener. The resin component is usually light, sometimes almost clear colored and almost odor free. Hardeners are usually dark and have a characteristic ‘ammonia-like’ smell. When these two components are brought together and mixed intimately in a prescribed way, they will react chemically and link together irreversibly, and after the chemical reaction has been completed, they will form a rigid plastic material. The ultimate result is a firm, durable, protective, and beautiful flooring enhancement.
Epoxy floor systems are widely sought and used on primarily indoor concrete surfaces to enhance the aesthetic appearance and to protect concrete structures. The use of epoxy systems has been used most on garage floors and unfinished laundry, basement, and storage rooms within the home. The primary benefits of epoxy flooring recognized by the homeowner through an epoxy investment include:
- Clean Polished Look
