Epoxy Product FAQs

Why epoxy a garage floor?

Epoxy is one of the most durable and toughest garage floor coatings available. It seals and protects your garage floor from tire marks and stains from gasoline and other chemicals. Epoxy does an excellent job of covering cracks and imperfections. Garage floors with epoxy finishes are easier to care for because they resist moisture and are less dusty. 

An epoxy-coated garage floor looks amazing! It gives your garage a showroom look. Epoxy coatings allow you to create a custom look with a variety of colors and blends of color flakes. Or choose one of our metallic epoxy options for a truly unique look.

Why is epoxy better than paint for garage floors?

Epoxy is better than paint for garage floors because it’s more durable, prevents stains, scratches, and doesn’t chip like paint. It bonds to surfaces better than paint. Epoxy is the best garage floor coating option available and is a cost-effective solution.

Is a top coat required for an epoxy floor?

A top coat is not required, but we highly recommend applying one. A top coat enhances the durability and strength of an epoxy floor. Over time, microscopic scratches build up on an epoxy floor and can create a dulling effect to the color. A top coat acts as a sacrificial layer, absorbing those scratches so the rich color of your epoxy floor stays true. A top coat increases the strength of your epoxy while adding a stunning gloss shine! 

How to apply epoxy to a garage floor

The ideal temperature for applying Epoxy-Coat is 40F-85F (4C-30C) and humidity should be below 85%.

We recommend testing for moisture. Our Vapor Gauge test kit makes this a simple task. It’s also suggested to test previous sealants. To determine whether the concrete has been previously sealed, pour a small amount of water onto the surface in various areas. If the water beads, a sealer is present and needs to be either chemically or mechanically removed with a diamond grinder.

Preparation 

Sweep or blow off the floor thoroughly. Use a diluted degreaser to remove any contaminants and oil. Add acid granules floor prep solution and 5 quarts of water into a pump sprayer and apply to the floor evenly. Scrub the floor surface with a stiff-bristled broom. 

After preparing the floor but prior to application, existing joints and saw cuts can be filled with Epoxy-Coat patch kit. Cracks under 1/8” should be patched with Epoxy-Coat acrylic latex caulk. 

Application

Follow the mixing instructions for the epoxy coating included with the product kit or online.

Wearing vinyl gloves while applying epoxy floor coating is suggested. Also, consider our optional spike shoes to make the application process easier. 

Applying our Epoxy-Coat Primer first is optional, but does help prevent common flooring issues while adding to the coating’s durability.  

Pour the epoxy along the farthest wall. Use the kit squeegee to draw the epoxy from the back wall until there is no more wet epoxy. Continue to squeegee, pulling the product down the line until complete.

Next, use the kit roller to apply the epoxy perpendicular to the squeegee applications, smoothing out any lines. 

Complete a second section with the squeegee and roll process, then return to the first section and back-roll it again.

If flakes were purchased, take a small amount and apply by throwing the flakes into the air at 5’ or higher. Apply flakes evenly throughout the flooring. 

Finally, apply Performance Poly200 Clear Top Coat to protect your floor and to add a showroom shine! 

Detailed instructions are available online and included with our kits. You can also check out this instructional video for more information. 

What to Do Before You Apply Epoxy-Coat

06/09/2021
by Performance Epoxy

Before you begin the process of applying epoxy coating, inspect your concrete floor. 

We recommend patching all cracks after preparing the floor but before coating application. Since mortar joints/saw cuts are engineered for movement, Epoxy-Coat does not recommend patching them before coating. Epoxy-Coat patch kits and caulk can be purchased online.

To determine whether the concrete has been previously sealed, you can perform a simple test by pouring a small amount of water onto the surface in various areas. If the water beads, a sealer is present and needs to be either chemically or mechanically removed with a diamond grinder.

Epoxy-Coat recommends using the moisture test kit called “Vapor Gauge,” sold at www.epoxy-coat.com, before application. If your test finds the moisture level of the concrete is high, call Epoxy-Coat technical support at 800-841-5580 for instructions. 

What is the Ideal Temperature for Applying Epoxy-Coat? 

The ideal temperature range when working with Epoxy-Coat is 40F-85F (4C-30C) with humidity of under 85%. Applying Epoxy-Coat in the evening works well.

Prepping the Floor for Epoxy-Coat Application

First, sweep or power blow off the entire floor surface area. Typically, old concrete floors have contaminants that must be removed before coating. Using a diluted degreaser and hot water, scrub those areas vigorously. It’s essential for all contaminants to be removed prior to coating. 

Next, combine the pre-mix acid granules and five quarts of water into a pump sprayer. Apply the mixture to the floor by sections and scrub it into the floor with a hard-bristled broom. After that is completed, apply baking soda to the floor and double-rinse with water. 

You need to allow the floor to dry completely before applying the coating. 

Mixing Instructions

Step 1:

Unpack your epoxy kit and assemble the mixer to a high-speed electric drill

Step 2:

Mix Part A Resin for two minutes

Step 3: 

Pour all of Part B into a large mixing bucket

Step 4:

Pour all of Part A into the same bucket

Step 5: 

Mix all contents for 3 minutes using an up-and-down motion

Note: The mixture has to be applied within 45 minutes.

Application Instructions

Step 6: 

Pour mixture along a wall and use a brush to apply at the edges

Step 7: 

Pour a second strip of mixture parallel to the first

Step 8:

Roll the epoxy with a squeegee from the back wall until there are no more parallel lines

Step 9:

Use a roller to roll out the epoxy finish consistently 

Step 10: 

If using decorative flakes, apply evenly throughout the coating 

Step 11 (optional): 

Apply a non-skid polyurethane clear coat 

Top Coat Recommendation 

A top coat is not required, but we highly recommend that you do apply one to extend the durability and beauty of your epoxy floor. 

Drying Time 

You should allow for 24 hours of drying time and keep water off the surface for 7 days. 

Applying a Primer or Multiple Coats 

When applying a primer or multiple coats, wait 10-15 hours between each application.

Top Coat vs. No Top Coat

06/01/2021
by Performance Epoxy

We are often asked if a top coat is necessary with our epoxy product. While it isn't required, we highly recommend applying a clear top coat to your epoxy floor. It's pretty affordable, and there are numerous benefits to make a top coat worthwhile. 

A Top Coat Maximizes Your Investment in an Epoxy Floor 

A top coat enhances the durability and strength of an epoxy floor. After you've put the time and effort into applying epoxy, it makes sense to add the extra assurance to top off your work. Keep in mind that when it's time to apply a top coat, the hardest part of the job is behind you. It's tempting to be content with your beautiful new floor and walk away. However, applying a top coat helps keep your epoxy floor looking as great as it does right after you finish the job. 

So, several years in the future, when your epoxy floor is starting to show some wear, all you need to do is sand off the clear coat and reapply one. Your epoxy floor will look brand-new again! A top coat is a smart way to make sure the investment of time and money you put into an epoxy floor keeps paying off for years. 

One of the best things about top coats are the stunning gloss finish they provide. You feel like you're walking into a new car showroom when you enter a garage with a top coat shine. 

A Top Coat Protects Your Epoxy Floor From Scratches 

Inevitably, scratches develop on an epoxy floor. Most of these are microscopic but can detract from the luster of the epoxy coating over time. A top coat is a sacrificial layer that prevents the small scratches from affecting the appearance of the epoxy coat. As a result of normal wear and tear, when more significant scratches occur, a top coat does an excellent job of camouflaging them.  

Other Benefits of a Top Coat for Your Epoxy Floor 

While an epoxy floor is easy to clean, a top coat only makes it that much easier. With a top coat, a dust mop will glide over the floor with ease and won't catch on any color flakes. If you need to scrub your floor, a top coat means you won't have to worry about damaging color flakes or losing the gorgeous luster of your epoxy floor. The top coat keeps the color of your epoxy floor looking rich and protects color flakes from chipping away. Also, dirt can collect around the edges of the color flakes, making it difficult to clean, and a top coat prevents this from being a problem.  

Another benefit is that anti-slip additive granules work better in a topcoat than in the epoxy color coat. This is simply because the top coat conceals the granules, maintaining a smooth surface look on the floor. 

We make it easy by providing Clear Epoxy-Coat with our Best and Super Epoxy Coat Kits. The Best and Super Epoxy Kits are exceptional values and come with everything you need to epoxy your floor. You don't have to worry about purchasing a top coat separately or whether or not it is compatible with your epoxy. All you need to do is open up the kit, and everything you need from start to finish, including the top coat, is right there.

Commercial Applications

05/25/2021
by Performance Epoxy

Major companies like Ford, Honda, Disney and organizations like the United States Armed Forces rely on our epoxy coat products for their flooring applications. With a client list like this, it’s easy to see why Performance Epoxy-Coat Kits are a good choice for your commercial applications. 

Commercial Applications for Epoxy Floor Coating 

Our products are an ideal choice in any environment with a lot of wear and tear that needs to adhere to a clean aesthetic. For example, consider a busy restaurant kitchen with extensive foot traffic and occasional spills. An epoxy-coated floor in this instance is perfect because it stands up to the wear and tear while repelling stains. Also, it’s easy to clean at the end of a restaurant shift. The result is a kitchen floor that looks clean and is able to endure years of heavy wear. 

Another excellent example of commercial applications for our epoxy coating are storage facilities. An epoxy floor stands up to wear and tear while repelling hot tire marks from vehicles moving in and out of the facility. 

Since many of our largest customers are automobile manufacturers, it’s clear that epoxy coating works in factory environments. Manufacturing floors withstand an extensive amount of wear and pressure from equipment. However, it’s important that these facilities maintain a clean look. Epoxy floor coating meets all of these needs and supports an environment that workers prefer. Employee productivity is enhanced in clean facilities, and epoxy-coated floors help support this effort. 

Epoxy Coated Floors are Cost-Effective for Commercial Applications

Commercial facilities save money when choosing an epoxy-coated floor because the labor and material costs are relatively low. A further cost benefit is realized due to the longevity of an epoxy-coated floor. No business wants to lose productivity from having flooring replaced, and epoxy coating minimizes this risk greatly. 

Cleaning costs for commercial facilities are not an insignificant expense. Crews can clean epoxy floors quickly and easily. The cost savings is realized whether a commercial facility outsources or uses internal resources for cleaning. 

Branding and Epoxy Coating Color Options 

Branding is essential for commercial facilities, and that includes color choices. Epoxy floor coating offers the unique option of coordinating a branding color scheme in the flooring. Epoxy color paint can make a powerful statement when incorporated into the overall design of a facility. 

Why Choose Our Products for Your Commercial Flooring Needs?

Our epoxy coating is used by companies and organizations that are global leaders in their industries. They know firsthand how durable and effective our epoxy coating is for commercial flooring applications. Performance Epoxy-Coat is a proven industry leader with years of experience producing the best epoxy coating products on the market.

Epoxy Coat for Basements

05/16/2021
by Performance Epoxy

When you dread going into your basement because it’s a drab and dingy place, consider the improvement of an epoxy floor coating. Not only does epoxy floor coating protect the existing concrete, it brightens up the basement and makes the floor easier to clean. 

Why an Epoxy Coated Basement Floor Makes Sense

Basement floors are typically bare concrete that isn’t aesthetically pleasing. Also, over time, wear and moisture causes cracks in the concrete. In addition, a concrete floor in a basement is a cleaning challenge, so dirt and grime build up. 

Epoxy coat is a simple and cost-effective solution to all these problems. Epoxy is durable and moisture-resistant, making it ideal for basement applications. An epoxy floor surface is easy to clean and resists dust while repelling stains. 

Perhaps most importantly, an epoxy floor coating transforms the look of a basement. You can choose an epoxy coating color that amps up the brightness, or color flakes for a custom look. An epoxy basement floor looks more polished and finished and enhances your home's value. 

Epoxy Floor Coatings in Basements are Cost-Effective

Epoxy floor coats are an affordable solution for basements. They provide further cost benefit by prolonging the life of the floor. Since basements are prone to flooding, an epoxy floor is a good choice. Once the water issues are resolved, you won’t have to worry about the expense of replacing flooring when you choose an epoxy coat for your basement. Further cost benefits are less tangible, such as increasing the value of your home in the long run. 

Epoxy Floors Are Easy to Apply in Basements

After cleaning your basement floor, open our epoxy kit and you are ready to get started. If there are cracks that need to be filled, our patch kit is an easy solution. Applying an epoxy coating doesn’t require lugging heavy materials or equipment down your basement steps. Also, you don't have to hire a professional to apply an epoxy floor coating. Save money with this do-it-yourself project that provides incredible benefits. 

Why Choose Our Epoxy Kits for Your Basement Application?

Performance epoxy coat is a favorite choice for organizations like NASA and companies like Disney. Our epoxy coat kits have been used to coat garage floors across America for over a decade. They are proven to be well-suited for basements.

How long does an epoxy floor last?

The longevity is enhanced when an epoxy top coat is applied. Also, epoxy floors require little to no maintenance and are easy to clean. Our epoxy contains a performance poly top that extends the life of the coating and prevents yellowing. 

Can You Epoxy Over Tile Floors? 

Yes you can epoxy over tile floors! In fact, it’s fairly easy to do and is a benefit of our epoxy products. Who hasn’t felt overwhelmed looking at a dated and dingy tile floor? The thought of breaking up and removing the tile is burdensome. Fortunately, this isn’t necessary with epoxy floor coatings. Select an epoxy color to match your design goals and you are on your way to reinventing the look of any room with tile floors. In addition, it’s a project you can easily complete yourself! 

Why Should I Choose Epoxy Floor Coatings for My Home? 

Epoxy floor coatings are incredibly durable and meet the demands of modern lifestyles in the home. They are easy to clean and maintain their beauty for years to come. 

However, the fact that epoxy floors are gorgeous can’t be understated. Whether you choose a solid color or flecks for a unique appearance, visitors to your home will be impressed. Add a top coat to your application for a glossy shine that reflects light and enhances the beauty of any room. 

Epoxy coatings allow you to update flooring without spending significant sums of money and time to replace existing flooring. Update a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, or living area with epoxy floor coating for a cost-effective solution that produces a stunning result! 

Where Can I Buy Epoxy for Floors?

How to Apply Epoxy on Linoleum

04/26/2021
by Performance Epoxy

Some people hesitate about applying an epoxy coating over a linoleum floor. However, before you consider alternatives to using epoxy on linoleum, rest assured that it works well, is easy to apply, and looks wonderful when finished. Not to mention - you save a lot of money by using epoxy coating instead of replacing the flooring! 

Epoxy application on linoleum floors requires a number of steps for maximum quality and efficiency, but it isn’t a difficult process.  

Do I need to remove linoleum before applying epoxy to my floor?

No, as long as the linoleum is still safely attached to the concrete below it, you can put an epoxy coating on top easily. Most people don’t realize how easy it is to apply epoxy on linoleum. Paying a professional isn’t necessary. If the linoleum is in good condition, it’s a project you can complete yourself. We’ve outlined the steps and the tools you’ll need for a successful project! 

Preparing Linoleum for Epoxy Coating 

First, inspect your floors for scratches and damages. The floor does need to be in good condition, so you’ll need to repair damage prior to adding the epoxy coating. Next, the existing floor needs to be thoroughly cleaned. Use a brush and a heavy-duty cleaner to scrub it down. You want to be sure the linoleum is free of grease or grime. If the linoleum still appears glossy after scrubbing, the remaining wax needs to be removed. If this is the case, a wax stripping product will do the trick. 

The next step is to sand the floors aggressively and create a roughed-up surface while removing any traces of wax or paint splatters. A good sanding produces the ideal texture for epoxy adherence. 

Applying Epoxy to Linoleum is Easy

Now you’re ready to apply the epoxy primer. We recommend applying as many coats as necessary to create a smooth surface for painting linoleum. After that, you can paint the floors using a roller to apply our epoxy coating. 

Follow the instructions for drying time included with the product and before you know it, your floors will look brand-new! 

Why Apply Epoxy Coating to Linoleum Floors?

One of the great things about epoxy coating is the choice of colors. Visit our website to explore your options. You can completely change the look and feel of a room by the color you choose. Flooring is not something you may notice every time you walk through a room, but when you see the transformation of an epoxy-coated floor, you definitely realize its impact. 

Epoxy coating is the perfect way to brighten up a kitchen or bathroom and cover up drab linoleum. Also, a solid-color floor also has more modern appeal. Applying epoxy coating to linoleum is far less expensive than replacing the flooring. With a little elbow grease, it will look like you paid for a professional remodeling. With epoxy’s durability, you’ll be enjoying a stunning floor for years to come!

Concrete is a durable floor surface for many applications. However, it’s not always the most aesthetically pleasing. Concrete epoxy floor coatings are a variety of products that cover the bare surface of concrete and improve its aesthetic appeal. Some states require floor coating on concrete floors in their regulations.

Before you decide which type of floor coating is best for your concrete floor, it’s essential to understand the differences between floor coating options. Basic concrete sealer is the first type of concrete floor coating. A basic concrete sealer is an easy solution that requires the least amount of prep work for applications. 

Concrete sealers are often used to protect floors from chemical spills, food stains, and foot or vehicle traffic. Concrete sealers also make the cleaning process easier. While concrete sealers serve these basic purposes, they don’t enhance the visual look of the flooring.  

The next type of concrete floor coatings are stains and sealers. Stains and sealers enhance the appearance of bare concrete floors. The stains typically penetrate the concrete and enable the sealer to create a durable finish, resulting in less peeling or flaking off on the surface. The downside of this method is the time it takes to prepare the flooring area, although the application is a simple process. 

Another form of concrete floor coating is an overlay. However, this is usually the most difficult and expensive method for concrete floor coverings. Various forms of overlay have different benefits. Self-leveling overlay, typically used to fix damaged or uneven surfaces, makes the surface look more professional. Another form of overlay is a spray-on that helps create a slip-resistant surface. Spray-on coatings are generally easy to clean. 

Then there is the method of epoxy floor paint to consider for coating concrete. The upfront costs of epoxy floor paint may be more than other methods, but they can save money in the long run. Epoxy floor paint coatings last longer than other methods. 

Epoxy floor coatings let you create your own style or design. You can customize your concrete flooring with different colors. Epoxy floor coverings provide the option of adding blended color flakes for a high-end look. As a result, epoxy floor coverings have show-room appeal.
