The long-term value of purchasing a system with zero VOC content
What exactly is Epoxy? A question may arise in your mind if you’re totally new to this industry, It’s not as complex as you think so. Epoxy refers to any basic components or cured end products of epoxy resins, or also a name for the epoxide functional group. But that’s not important for you to know if all you’re looking for is little extra shine on your floors, or cars or any products that you want, the good news is Epoxy is what you’re looking for. Even in terms of flooring, if you compare the benefits of epoxy flooring for garage alongside tile flooring, epoxy wins every time as the best garage flooring.

But you need to know that Epoxy coating isn't technically a paint, even though the name may be used. A straight epoxy paint would contain both acrylic paint and epoxy in its mix, sometimes called 1-part epoxy. The acrylic formula can allow for customizations in coloring, and this type of epoxy paint dries like regular paint. This epoxy component is attributed to the paint's resistance to chemical stains on the floor like gasoline or oil, so it's often used on garage and workroom floors. Many may have a question that is Epoxy scratch free? Well to be honest, it just depends on the amount of Epoxy used. Thicker the epoxy, the better it is, even if something hard is dropped on the surface. Lower Epoxy may still show some scratches

High traffic areas, outdoor spaces, decks, workspaces and areas with lots of moisture like pool floors or saunas are excellent candidates for zero VOC epoxy floor coatings because of its scratch, moisture and abrasion resistance.
