The Benefits of Epoxy Floor Paint
Paint your floors? Yes, believe it or not, painting your floors can add years to their life, as well as drastically improve appearance. Let’s take a look in a little more detail about the benefits of epoxy floor paint.
Epoxy floor paint is resistant to slips, extreme impact, and even fire. So, when you paint your floors with epoxy floor paint, you immediately decrease the chance of injury.
Floors painted with epoxy floor paint resist wear and extend the life of your floor, which, over time, will save you money in floor maintenance and eventual replacement.
Epoxy-coated floors are incredibly easy to clean and maintain. Once it has been applied, all of the grooves and cracks that previously stored grime will be gone and you will be left with a smooth surface.
The variety of epoxy coatings makes it a versatile choice for floor coverings. It is offered in a wide array of colours, so you’re certain to find a colour that is suitable for your environment. Additionally, epoxy hides cracks and dings in the floor. So the overall aesthetic of the floor and the room is improved upon.
Epoxy floor adds a layer of strength to the floor, since the epoxy has been converted to solid polymer. This substance also prevents chemical breakdown.
This is particularly important for warehouse and garage flooring. Epoxy is resistant to chemicals and water build up, and it can survive prolonged exposure to them (though it’s advisable to clean up any mess immediately). Epoxy is also resistant to bacteria and mould build up since there are no grooves for the bacteria to settle into.
Coating your floors with epoxy is also good foe your vehicles, because epoxy is more forgiving on vehicles and motorized equipment.
With all of the benefits associated with epoxy floor paint, the only question to ask yourself is, “why didn’t I think of this years ago?”
