What is an Epoxy Garage Floor?
Epoxy is a durable coating that will make your garage the strongest it can be. Adding strength to the surface, it acts as a sealant to protect your garage flooring from the high pressure it comes under. Ideal practically, it also offers stunning color opportunities, and is smooth, even, and easy to maintain and keep clean. Affordable and essential, in short, epoxy is what you need for your garage!
Components of Epoxy Garage Floors
Epoxy floor coating is made up of a two-part coating that is mixed together. The epoxy coating is composed of either clear or colored epoxide resin and polyamine hardener. When mixed together, the hardener creates a chemical reaction. It then creates the exothermic curing process, which forms polymer structures. Polymer structures are what make the garage floor epoxy coating strong and durable.

Garage Floor Epoxy Coating Application
We are a company known for delivering great project results. Whether it's a concrete project or in this case, the application of garage floor epoxy flooring, we always give our best. That's how passionate we are in our goal to provide you with extreme customer satisfaction.
To ensure we deliver the same quality of workmanship in every epoxy flooring project, we always follow the following epoxy coating application process:
Step 1: Clean and Degrease Concrete Floor
Whether it's residential or commercial applications, we always start with cleaning and degreasing the concrete floor. This helps us to literally start the project on a clean slate. We also make sure the surface is flat and smooth.
Step 2: Etch and Prepare the Garage Floor
Each epoxy coating kit comes with an etching solution, which is mixed with water. Once the mixture is ready, we pour it to the floor and work it out using a basic brush or broom. It is vital to wear safety gear, though, to protect you from the chemical solution. We rinse the area off with water once done and wait for it to completely dry.
Once dry, we proceed with garage floor preparation. It involves applying painter's tape along the bottoms of the wall and/or removing the baseboards.
Step 3: Mix Epoxy Coating Mixture
Our company uses high-quality epoxy coatings in all our epoxy garage floor projects. By using only the best, we guarantee we get to deliver a garage floor that's strong and long-lasting. During this process, we mix together the catalysts and the resins. Resins, also known as epoxy paints, come in different colors. But, the most commonly used is the clear one. After mixing the epoxy mixture, we let it rest for a certain period of time as specified by the manufacturer of the product.
Step 4: Apply Garage Floor Epoxy Coatings
To start the epoxy coating process, we first apply the epoxy primer to the concrete floors. The primer serves as the base coat. It's a vital part of the process as it serves as the foundation of your epoxy coating system. Once done with the primer application, we proceed with the rest of the epoxy coating application process.
Step 5: Wait for the Concrete Floor to Dry
It takes at least 24 hours for the epoxy coating to dry. Wait until it's dry before opening up for foot traffic. Meanwhile, it takes at least seven days for the epoxy coating to fully dry up. Only until then, it's safe to park your vehicles on your new garage floors. While your epoxy garage floor is already great and functional as it is, you may also opt to install garage floor mats as well. Rather than bouncing off sound waves, garage floor mats absorb them. Thus, protecting your concrete floors even more.
