Epoxy floor coating can help more than just your garage, too. It’s a great way to brighten up a concrete patio, deliver a memorable look to a new concrete basement floor, or protect your driveway from weather, wear and whatever else. But how does our epoxy floor coating system work?
How Epoxy Floor Coating Works
SMT Concrete uses what’s known as a “flake” style epoxy. There’s lots of technical details we could talk about regarding the different types of epoxy, but as far as your concrete garage floor is concerned, what makes flake-style epoxy floor coating your best option is the two-coat approach to protection.
The base coat of our flake epoxy is made up of 100% solid standard transparent epoxy, or PE-100. PE-100 epoxy floor coatings come in solid colors and are totally solvent-free. The color you choose for the base layer will have some impact on the final appearance of whatever flake pattern you choose for the top layer, and the chemical properties of this PE-100 epoxy are primarily responsible for the added durability the epoxy coating gives your garage floor.
The top coat is made up of polyaspartic high performance epoxy, or PP-S85. This epoxy floor coating is 85% solid and is primarily responsible for the decorative side of the full epoxy coating, while also enhancing its overall durability. What makes PP-S85 so crucial to our epoxy floor coating, though, is that it makes the full epoxy coating color stable, allowing it to be exposed to heavy sunlight without having its color change or degrade. Not all epoxy floor coatings offer this same protection! When you choose SMT Concrete to apply epoxy floor coating to your garage floor, you really are getting the best epoxy protection in the industry.
