Epoxy Metallic Floors: Rock Hard, Tough as Nails, and a Multitude of options.
This High-Performance attractive floor surface is a wise investment for any structure that needs protection from wear or abuse.
An epoxy is not paint and paint is not an epoxy. Floor paint is a latex acrylic product. Some floor paints do have a small amount of epoxy added to their mix so that they can add the word epoxy to their label. These are known as epoxy paints or 1-part epoxy paints.
Epoxy itself is actually a thermosetting resin that is applied as a coating. Epoxy is formed when single molecules (monomers) of the epoxy resin chemical and the hardener combine to form long chains of molecules (polymers). The mixture merges to create an exothermic catalyzation curing process which produces a hard solid polymer. The end result is a coating that is much more substantial than paint and bonds tenaciously to the concrete surface.

Epoxy is a reliable coating that offers superb protection and preservation. Aliphatic polyurethane is the ideal top coat for epoxy. This hybrid provides polymer materials that have excellent thermal and stress relieving properties and impact resistance. The main purpose for the hybrid is advanced protection from deterioration or contamination.
Both provide protection against chemical corrosion, wear and damage. They are long-lasting and reduce replacement and maintenance costs. Both increase safety with non-slip surfaces and increase light reflectivity by up to 300% which lowers utility bills and brightens the space.
Additional advanced benefits include aesthetics, wear, non-skid, chemical resistance, ease of maintenance, physical performance and a myriad of other properties. Keep in mind that no other surface in a building, regardless of the building’s use, takes more abuse than its floors.
Like epoxy, polyurethane is also a thermosetting polymer and high performance coating. Of the differences, aliphatic polyurethane offers more flexibility which aids in impact absorption and is more abrasion resistant by as much as 3 to 1. Aliphatic polyurethane also has a higher resistance to chemicals including methylene chloride which is the main ingredient of paint thinner.
The polyurethane surface is not as hard as epoxy but is more scratch resistant, tolerates large temperature swings and humidity better.
