Concrete Grinding and Sealing Concrete with Epoxy

 

Epoxy floor Coatings are popular with businesses and widely used in showrooms, hardware stores & warehouses, factories and commercial properties Epoxy floor coatings are a cost effective heavy duty flooring choice.

 

Epoxy is a liquid based sealer made up from a blend of Resins and Hardeners to form a plastic like material which can be applied to both Existing or New concrete as a protective coating which will enhance the appearance and performance of the concrete floor.  This amazing material works as a strong coating or thick layer which can be used to fill and hide any holes, cracks or imperfections in concrete floors including variances in the colour caused by the use of toppings during the pouring stage, stains or irregular aggregate. 

The Epoxy process involves grinding and preparing the concrete to get an even surface and the correct texture, then applying the coloured or clear Epoxy Coating to produce a smooth, even, extremely strong protective layer to enhance wear, durability and appearance.

  Epoxy is a long wearing product which is resistant to chemical spills & stains providing a cleaner work environment and commonly used to protect floors in heavy traffic areas. 

 Avoiding accidents and providing a safe environment is important whether it be in the workplace or home, a non slip agent can be added to reduce slip hazards, improve safety and to meet OH&S requirements.

Epoxy is a water proof product suitable for wet areas and Epoxy comes in a variety of Grades and Strengths suited to different needs including Hospital & Food Grades to meet Hygienic regulations for spaces such as Commercial kitchens and Food storage facilities.

Available in a range of colours that are opaque in appearance to hide any imperfections and give concrete floors a smooth even paint like finish.  Epoxy is also available in a clear coating finish.

Types of Epoxy Coatings

Epoxy Paint is made from Resin combined with a Harderner with 3 types of Epoxy that are characterized by the amount of solids, or epoxy, they contain.  All 3 come in a range of colours.

Type 1 Epoxy - 100 Percent Solid

100 percent solid epoxy paint is the most pure of the epoxy paints.  Although it is durable, it is not a common application due to the higher cost of the material and because it can be difficult to apply as it hardens very quickly.

Type 2 Epoxy - Solvent-Based

Solvent-based epoxy paint is made up of 40-60 percent solids that are combined with chemical solvents. Solvent-based epoxy is popular because it comes in many different colors, a clear option is also available.  Fumes emitted from this type of epoxy are very potent so it is important to wear protective gear during application and the space or area having this process applied to has good ventilation.  Pricing is moderate.

Type 3 Epoxy - Water-Based

Water-based epoxy paint is made up of 40-60 percent solids that are combined with water. The fumes are not dangerous.  Water-based Epoxy is the best type of Epoxy for the use in homes or for spaces that have poor ventilation.  This type of Epoxy is a popular choice as it is available in a great range of colours & is available in a clear non coloured finish.  Water based Epoxy is low in harmful fumes and is easier to use with preparation, application and clean up.  Pricing is moderate.
