Industrial Epoxy Coatings
Epoxy paint is a resin-based paint with excellent bonding properties that dries to form an attractive, hard-wearing finish. It is commonly used as floor paint in commercial and industrial settings.
When mixed together before application, the reaction between the two components of epoxy paint - a resin and a hardener - gives painted surfaces a strong, long-lasting layer of protection.
What is Epoxy Paint?
It is a common floor coating which is versatile, slip-resistant and aesthetically-pleasing. It cures through the reaction between its two parts and, when properly mixed and applied, forms a durable finish that is water, oil and chemical-resistant. For this reason, it protects floors effectively even in high-traffic areas.

Can Epoxy Paint be Used on Concrete?
Yes, epoxy paint is often applied to concrete or even metal surfaces. It is an ideal choice for painting new and old concrete floors as it provides a smooth and durable finish. Even better, it doesn’t require any special approach to cleaning in order to remain in excellent condition for years to come.
This paint is commonly used for painting concrete floors in warehouses, workshops, hangars, factories, and more. This is because it forms a highly protective and hard-wearing coating with excellent oil and chemical resistance.
What does ‘2 Pack’ Epoxy Paint Mean?
2 Pack Epoxy Paint is a paint system involving a mixture of two parts: a resin and a hardener. When combined, these two parts result in a chemical reaction producing an extremely hard-wearing painted coating. It is very attractive once fully dry as it gives concrete floors a mirror-like gloss finish.
It’s worth noting that epoxy floor paint is more hard-wearing than single pack paint and, as a result, it usually comes at a higher price. But this is also reflected in its excellent bonding properties and versatility.
What are the Benefits Of Epoxy Floor Paint?
Epoxy paint doesn’t require any special application skills, tools, or additional adhesives. It’s easy to apply using a solvent resistant brush or roller and dries fully in about a week:
Foot traffic in 2-3 days
Heavy traffic in 5-7 days
It offers impressive oil, water, and chemical resistance properties whilst protecting floors from wear-and-tear, thus saving you money on repainting or repairs. What’s more, it comes in black, white and a range of attractive colours.
Its wide range of benefits include:
Oil and chemical resistance
Where to use Epoxy Paint
Due to its durability, this type of floor paint is ideal for use in high-traffic areas, such as warehouses, garages and shop floors. It's also a practical option for anyone painting a floor in an area where spillages are common. Some epoxy paint products can also be used as a dust sealer on concrete floors.
Although epoxy coatings offer the best chemical resistance and protection from the elements, the colours will chalk and fade when used for external applications. Furthermore, epoxy can not be applied over single pack floor paints as the epoxy will attack it.
