These epoxy flooring systems can also be decorative and look very attractive in a number of settings.
Different types of epoxy floor systems
There are different types of systems that can be used for flooring. Smith & Company Painting offers these four types of coatings:
- Amine Epoxies. Amine epoxy floor systems are very hard and are resistant to chemical spills. They may be used in areas that will be exposed to corrosive elements. They are also water resistant. However, they do require recoating more often and dry slower than other epoxies.
- Amidoamine Epoxies. These epoxies are created from the reaction of a polyamine and a fatty acid. They are fairly resistant to water and corrosive elements, but they are also quite tough and have a low viscosity. However, they are slow to cure and can only be used in certain temperatures.
- Polyamide Epoxies. These epoxies can be used in many areas and for many purposes. They are very flexible and resilient, but they are fairly porous and may not be ideal for some temperatures.
- Epoxy Phenolics/Novolacs. These coatings have a very high resistance to heat, chemicals, corrosion, and solvents, but they are fairly weak and may be damaged easily. They also take a good amount of time to cure.
