All About Epoxy Paint
Epoxy paint is one of the toughest paint
materials. Epoxy paint makes a great choice for
the floor especially if you want to add some
extra shine to the floors. These act as a
sealant on cement floors and are typically
applied on garages or basement floors. There is a
lot of confusion in figuring out which one would
be the best, epoxy floor paint or epoxy floor
coating. The best way is to learn about both and
then decide based on their functioning, pros and
cons, and application. This blog will guide you
What Is Epoxy Paint?
Epoxy paint is originally designed for industrial
use. It is a latex acrylic product which has a
small amount of epoxy in the mix and it is used
for flooring applications. Epoxy paints provide
a tough, durable protective coating to the
floor. It is also easy to maintain. Epoxy paint
has unique properties like it is corrosion-
resistant, resistant to chemicals and also
easy-to- clean. These properties make it perfect
for garages and warehouses.
Difference Between Epoxy Paint and Normal Paint
The major difference between epoxy paint and
normal paint is that when epoxy is present in
the paint, the paint will stick to the concrete
surface much better. It will make it more
durable. Without epoxy, a standard paint will
peel and flake, especially in the areas that
receive high traffic. Many people choose epoxy
paint because it is resilient, safe to use for
highly-trafficked areas, and gives aesthetically
pleasing shine to the floor. Not just this, the
epoxy paint shields the floor from any damage,
especially from heat and chemicals. Also, it is
shock-resistant, perfect for any area where
chemicals, heat, and other materials are widely
Pros of Epoxy Floor Paint
Resistant The epoxy floor paint is hard, sturdy.
It can bear the brunt of heat, heavy shock,
water, and chemicals. Because of its resistance,
it is ideal for garages because cars emit
corrosive chemicals. Cost-effective These are
referred to as cost-effective because this can be
added onto your current flooring, saving you
enough time, efforts, and money. Long-lasting Even
though it takes time to install epoxy paint, it
is actually long-lasting. It is extremely
durable, hard- wearing, and will also withstand
a great deal of traffic. Protection Epoxy paint
acts as a shield for your floors. It protects the
floor from stains, cracks and prevents easy wear
and tear.
What is Epoxy Coating?
Epoxy coating is a compound that consists of two
elements such as epoxy resin and a polyamine
hardener which is also known as a catalyst. After
the epoxy coating gets cured, the result is quite
good. You get a durable, rigid plastic coating
with numerous desirable other mechanical
properties. In Simple Words Epoxy is a kind of
strong glue. It is used in the construction of
airplanes, cars, among other things. Even though
epoxy can be used for a variety of other
substances too, it is mostly used for things that
are made of a certain chemical compound.
Epoxy Paint vs Epoxy Coating
Epoxy paint is just a paint. It is easy to use
and can also be applied by self (DIY) An epoxy
coating is a mix of resins and hardeners. The
application of epoxy coat needs professional
help to get long-lasting results.
Look for Durability
When you have to choose between epoxy paint and
epoxy coating, choose on the basis of
durability. But if you just want to change the
look of the floor, just go for epoxy paint If you
want a floor for the area that receives heavy
traffic and also is at risk of chemical spillage,
then the epoxy coating is a great option. If we
compare epoxy paint with the traditional latex
paint, former is better because it wont hold up
stains, chemicals, and abrasions. Key
Difference The price is the major difference.
Epoxy paint is considerably cheaper. You can buy
epoxy paint from a store and then apply it on
your own. For epoxy coatings, you will require
professional installation. For the best epoxy

A Recap- When to Use Epoxy Floor Paint?
If your budget does not allow it, you can choose
epoxy paint because it is a cost-effective
alternative to installing completely new
floor. It is good to go because of its high-build
formulation of paint which gives the floor a
good, and firm thickness. Unlike conventional
heavy-duty floors, you will not have to repaint
an epoxy-painted floor every few months. You can
get it done for bathrooms, saunas, and even
swimming pool areas. If you want instant change,
transformation. It is dust-resistant because of a
topical sealer. If the dust sits on top of the
material, it will not penetrate in the pores. It
is also naturally moisture-resistant. Spills and
stains will not be absorbed into the epoxy
leaving ugly and long-lasting marks.
Which One to Choose?
  • We would recommend choosing the epoxy floor
    coating because it is something that lasts for
    years without even any wear and tear. Also, the
    benefits that epoxy coating provides are more
    than the benefits that are given by epoxy
  • Epoxy floor coatings are good for industrial as
    well as residential places. If we go by the price
    and budget, it is a one-time investment but with
    epoxy paint, you may have to invest money again
    and again.
  • If you want better results and want to set
    yourself free for rest of the life, opt for the
    best epoxy floor coating services in Melbourne.
  • The best part of getting epoxy coating is that
    you do not have to give hardcore attention to its
    maintenance. It is easy to care an epoxy floor
    coating. Also, you can get epoxy floor coating
    inside or even outside the home. You do not have
    to worry about any spillages, cleaning on daily
    basis. Once in a week, deep cleaning will also
    do wonders. But this is not the case with epoxy
  • Moreover, epoxy floor coatings are done only by
    professionals. They know exactly how to manage
    the process. Treating hardener needs experience
    and if managed by the experts, the process gets
    completed in time and also gives better results.
    Besides, you can always reach out to them in case
    something goes wrong. However, in the case of
    epoxy paint, if you go by the DIY option, you may
    end up messing up things, which can leave you
    with more financial burdens.
  • So, it is suggested to go for one-time, long-term
    investment and that is epoxy floor coating from
