What are epoxy coatings?
Epoxy coatings are a type of covering for areas with concrete flooring like patios, garage floors, basements, etc. Some might call it a garage floor paint, but it's more of a coating than a paint. Epoxy coatings are a mixture of two chemicals - epoxy resin, and hardening agent. Actual epoxy paint will contain acrylic paint and an epoxy mix, which is sometimes called "1-part epoxy" and dries like a regular paint. Unlike epoxy paint, epoxy coatings need to cure in order to dry. This curing process makes for a better seal over concrete flooring because it completely seals the porous structure of the concrete while leaving a smooth even shine. It also protects against scratches, stains, and chemical spills.
Why choose epoxy flooring?
There are many benefits to using epoxy coatings as opposed to just regular paint or epoxy paint.
Easy to clean: The seamless and smooth results of cured epoxy flooring is that it makes cleaning much easier since there's no places for dirt or grime to attach to and hang on. There's nowhere to hide!
Limiting microbial growth: Because of the smooth finish not allowing dirt and grime to stick to it, epoxy coatings also prevent microbial growth for the same reasons. There's nowhere for those microbes to hide.
Withstand damage from heat: If you select a polyamine epoxy agent, this flooring will be more resistant to heat damage and small microscopic corrosions from chemicals and abrasions.
Resistant to moisture: If you choose a polyamide epoxy, it will be resistant to moisture, abrasions, and other chemical corrosions.
Customization: One of the great things about installing an epoxy floor is you have a choice in what colors, styles, and patterns you want in the cured final product. You can even add custom graphics and logos underneath them.
How long does epoxy flooring last?
On average, a well-maintained epoxy coating will last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. With regular maintenance, it can go well past 20 years. So if you're looking for a durable and long lasting solution, epoxy floor coatings is the way to go.
Where can I apply epoxy coatings?
Epoxy coatings have a wide range of applications and uses across many industries. Types of places that benefit from epoxy flooring includes retail stores, schools, laundry mats, hospitals, and any commercial building that sees a lot of foot traffic. The industrial uses for epoxy coatings include manufacturing plants, pharmaceutical plants, laboratories, and any chemical processing plants that need hard and resistant flooring from stains and corrosions. For residential uses, it can be used for decks, outdoor patios, garage floors, basements, etc.
Are epoxy coatings scratch resistant?
It really depends on how much epoxy you use. Thicker epoxy coatings prevent scratches when anything heavy is dropped on it, while a coating with lower epoxy in the mix will show some scratches or dings if the impacts are strong enough. However, compared to other flooring options epoxy coated floors are by far the most scratch resistant.
The best candidates for benefiting from an epoxy floor coating would be anywhere that has high foot traffic, outdoor concrete spaces, and spaces with lots of moisture like pool floors. On average, you're looking at $3 - $12 per square foot for both residential and commercial applications.
How much do epoxy flooring cost?
According to Home Advisor, the average epoxy floor coating cost ranges from $1,435 - $2,951 in 2019. This is all depending on what type of epoxy floor coating you go with and how big the surface area is that it will be applied to.
