What is Epoxy?
Epoxy is made up of mainly two parts – a resin and a hardener. Which then mixed at the right proportions creating a chemical reaction that forms a strong, rigid plastic material, immune to wear and tear. It also bonds remarkably well to virtually any surface.

Surface Preparation for Epoxy Floor Coatings.
The prerequisites for good adhesion of the coating are cleanliness, roughness and dryness of the surface. Unless these are ensured by proper surface preparation, a successful performance can not be guaranteed.
The degree of dampness of the surface must be less than 4%. Iron and steel surfaces must be free from rust, scale, dust, grease and other impurities which can prevent adhesion. The best surface pre-treatment is through sandblasting to Sa 21/2.
In the case of concrete surfaces, they should be free from laitance and dust by sandblasting. In case sandblasting is not possible, thorough abrading with a hard wire brush can be used, though it is not as efficient.
Otherwise, acid etching using 1 part of Hydrochloric acid with 2 parts of water can be carried out. The solution should be brush applied over the surface liberally and left in contact for 15 minutes. Then it is washed off with plenty of water followed by proper drying with hot water.
The normal curing period for epoxy floor coatings is between 5 to 8 days, and normally thickness is around 200 microns after two coats.
Once the epoxy flooring resin sets it offers excellent chemical and heat resistance with extremely low shrinkage.
