Epoxy Coatings in Truro

Epoxy coatings

Applying epoxy coatings to surfaces creates a solution for businesses and homeowners who demand the utmost in durability and require an impermeable surface. At Elite Trade Painting, we pride ourselves on our ability to create high-performing, beautiful epoxy floors and other surfaces for our clients.

What Is Epoxy?

Epoxy is actually a two-part product that can be applied to a very wide range of surfaces, but is particularly useful for steel and concrete. The first part is a resin (the base). The second is a catalyst, or hardener. When the two are mixed, the resulting material begins to cure (harden) and can be applied to floors, counters, and more. Once fully cured, the surface is impermeable to liquids, meaning it does not stain, and it is also hypoallergenic and impervious to viruses and bacteria.

Where Are Epoxy Coatings Used?

At Elite Trade Painting, we’ve worked with clients in many different industries to create epoxy coatings for floors, counters, and numerous other areas. Epoxy coatings are frequently used in:


Medical centres


Automotive shops

Retail stores

Manufacturing plants


In addition, epoxy coatings are being applied more and more frequently in residential situations. For instance, they can be used on cement decks/patios, in garages, in basements, and more.

How Are Epoxy Coatings Applied?

The first step in applying any type of epoxy coating is to completely clean the surface. This will require power washing and acid etching at a minimum. However, the surface was previously painted, all of the old paint must be removed. We use shot blasting and grinding, coupled with power washing, to remove:






Once the surface is completely clean, we begin applying the epoxy. Perhaps the most important consideration at this point is the time required for drying and curing. During the application and curing process, the area will be out of service. Not abiding by this closure can result in your epoxy floor failing.

We will work with you to create a schedule that fits your needs and minimises the impact of downtime on your business or home. We address this challenge during the initial assessment and quote process, and we’re happy to work during standard business hours, during the evening, on weekends, and even on holidays.
