How Does Epoxy Floor Coating Work?
It is pretty widely known that epoxy floor coating is extremely durable and resistant to damage and stains. But how does it work? The science behind this innovative flooring solution is pretty interesting!
Epoxy flooring systems are a thermosetting resin that is applied to (properly prepped) concrete flooring. The coating is created through a chemical bonding of polyepoxide resin and polyamine hardener. The two components are mixed together immediately before being applied to the concrete floor surface. A chemical reaction occurs, which causes the components to bond to each other and to the concrete surface.
After application, the material goes through a curing process, during which time it hardens as the polymer structures cross link and strengthen. Once curing is complete, the result is a thick, durable floor surface that can withstand extreme stress.
The thing that sets epoxy floor coating apart from other floor coating options, such as paint, is the bonding and thickening process that the resin goes through during the installation process. Epoxy doesn’t just coat the floor surface, but also seals and protects it to create a moisture barrier.

Really Pleased! Our garage needed some major help – not only was it a mess but the floor was just ugly with all the stains and such. I will agree with the reviewer below – do not go with the cheap imitators! Floorguard not only has a great product, but their installers and service is well worth any extra cost, which is minimal anyway. Our neighbors have commented on how good our garage looks and we’ve recommended them to Floorguard without hesitation.
The garage looks so good! A+ company on every level. Wish I had another garage to resurface!
