To help make the best decisions possible, our Custom Concrete Coatings experts explain the differences between the two and why epoxy coating is all the protection your garage needs!


What’s The Difference

Epoxy coating consists of epoxy resin and a polyamine hardener. The two are mixed together before application, then it’s rolled or poured over the garage floor and the epoxy coating starts to harden. It’s important to remember that it will harden quickly, so it’s best to apply as soon as possible. After application, a chemical bonding process begins and the coating hardens to create a thick, protective barrier over the garage floor.
