What is Epoxy and what can it be used for?

Epoxy coating is a unique material that is very tough and versatile. It provides optimum protection against abrasion, turbulence, corrosive fluids and extreme temperatures. Epoxy coating is not only durable, but also resistant to many corrosive substances. Epoxies are a top choice for many coating applications, including flooring, tables, countertops and outdoor spaces. Epoxies are excellent for covering steel, wood, metal, concrete, and more.

Benefits of Epoxy:

Durability -When epoxy cures, it becomes very solid and hard. Epoxy paint has such high durability that it is often used as a concrete floor paint to be driven over by forklifts and heavy machinery, while still lasting for years of such use. Not too many coatings could take such a beating for even a few days.

Cleanliness -Because it is hard, epoxy is also easy to clean. Much like glass, it is smooth enough that most materials will come off easily, and it is stain resistant since nothing can really soak in. In nearly any setting it is important to be able to clean surfaces easily and thoroughly, and epoxy is about as cleanable as it gets, whether the mess is from grease on a garage floor or eggs on a countertop or table.

Chemical Resistance -If that mess includes harsh chemicals, epoxy again is an ideal coating for the job. From floors susceptible to intermittent chemical contact, water spills, high traffic areas, etc. Epoxy coatings are ideal for your household because they are designed to maintain integrity in harsh chemical environments.

Temperature Resistance -Just as epoxy is tough enough for chemical resistance, it also can stand up to more heat and more cold than most paints. Epoxy is used in harsh industrial environments that require intense heat therefore making it ideal to protect your home environment.

Non-toxic -Epoxy is an environmentally friendly choice. Because it has such high integrity once cured, it will not erode or dissolve into its environment, such as by fumes in the air or trace amounts in water. So it is essentially non-toxic. Furthermore, it needs recoating less often, and requires less cleaning agent to clean, reducing the amount of chemicals used overall.
