Epoxies are solutions that need to be mixed together prior to application. Once mixed, they contain large particles of chemical sealant that are applied to a concrete surface. Once applied to the concrete surface, the large particles of sealant will pool on said surface, as they are too large to penetrate past the tiny surface pores natural to all concrete. They merely sit atop the surface of the concrete to be spread out evenly during the application process.
Once spread out evenly, the particles of sealant will adhere to the concrete substrate, creating a nigh unbreakable bond that will last a significant amount of time. These epoxy coatings, when properly applied, will offer excellent resistance to abrasions, heat, UV rays, and a variety of other potential problems. They will leave concrete surfaces smooth and protected, and you can even add some visual pizzazz to the concrete with the possibility of adding paint chips or metallic sand.
Because they are easy to apply and easy to maintain, they are often the concrete coatings of choice for most retail stores, as well as airports and warehouses. They offer an excellent level of comprehensive protection that lasts for a significant amount of time. The best epoxy coating on the market is the Epoxy 325, a water-based product that has a low volatile organic content, making it safe and legal for application. Its propriety blend of chemicals has created a product that offers superior protection from excessive heat, abrasions and resistance to chemical spills.
