Water Based Epoxy Concrete Floor Coating
Dura-Kote WB Epoxy is the perfect primer for all epoxy flooring systems. It is a 2-component coating that can easily be applied and will shut off outgassing.
100% Clear Epoxy Concrete Floor Sealer
Dura-Kote Epoxy 100 is a zero VOC, thick build, a high-performance coating which can be used to increase the abrasion resistance and protect colored concrete floors.
For commercial and garage floor concrete based, the best way to add protection is to add thickness or millage. The best way to do that is to use some form of an epoxy. At SureCrete we’ve strives to create the most efficient and easiest to apply epoxy floor coatings on the market.
Any epoxy sealer will be an eco-friendly choice, with our Water Based Epoxy coming in just under 100 g/L VOCs and the Epoxy 100 product being a completely solvent-free 0 g/L VOC product and is as easy to apply as floor stains. Your choice between the two depends on mostly upon solids content.
Whichever your application may be, we pride ourselves on providing the best epoxies in the industry at cost-effective pricing, able to be picked up at any of our conveniently located distribution locations around the United States. Installers that designs concrete looks love our epoxy for its ease of use.
Where you can Use Epoxy Floor Sealer Coatings:
- cement floor kitchens
- staining concrete floors in rooms
- kitchen floors
What’s the Difference Between Floor Epoxy and Similar Coatings?
Floor Epoxy materials tend to harden somewhat more gradually, while polyester materials tend to harden quickly, particularly if a lot of catalysts is used. The chemical reactions in both cases are exothermic. Large quantities of the mix will generate their heat and greatly speed the reaction, so it is usual to mix small amounts which can be used quickly.
While it is common to associate polyester resins and epoxy resins, their properties are sufficiently different that they are properly treated as distinct materials. Polyester resins are typically low strength unless used with a reinforcing material like glass fibre, are relatively brittle unless reinforced, and have low adhesion. Epoxies, by contrast, are inherently strong, somewhat flexible and have excellent adhesion. However, polyester resins are much cheaper to design concrete floors.
Epoxy resins typically require a precise mix of two components which form a third chemical. Depending on the properties required, the ratio may be anything from 1:1 or over 10:1, but in every case, they must be mixed in exactly the right proportions, and thoroughly to avoid unmixed portions. The final product is then a precise thermo-setting plastic. Until they are mixed the two elements are relatively inert, although the ‘hardeners’ tend to be more chemically active and should be protected from the atmosphere and moisture. The rate of the reaction can be changed by using different hardeners, which may change the nature of the final product, or by controlling the temperature. Architects and builders that want to create creative designs flooring love our epoxy for both residential and commercial applications.
