Epoxy Coatings for Resistance and Durability
When it comes to durability and resistance to wear and tear, as well as chemicals, few solutions can match what epoxy coatings deliver. At Elite Trade Painting, we offer epoxy painting for a wide range of needs in Vancouver to ensure that you have the durability, resistance, and longevity that you require.
Understanding Epoxy Coatings
Epoxy coatings are generally applicable only for certain types of surfaces, such as steel and concrete. They deliver resistance to chemicals and water, but also hold up very well to high levels of foot traffic and even vehicle traffic. The epoxy products we install consist of two components. First, there is a resin base, followed by a catalyst, or hardener, that transforms the base into an impermeable coating. However, we can offer a select range of single-component epoxy coatings, such as PPG Pitt Glaze for specific applications. We generally recommend two-component epoxy coatings for most applications in Vancouver and the surrounding area, though.
Epoxy Coating Applications
While epoxy coatings can be applied to a range of surfaces, epoxy floor painting in Vancouver is one of the most common solutions. Epoxy floor painting is used in commercial, industrial, and even residential settings where outstanding durability and resistance to water and chemicals are needed. Warehouse floors, automotive repair shops, home workshops and garages, and even retail stores all benefit from this floor coating.
How We Apply Epoxy Floor Coatings
The first step in applying an epoxy floor coating is to thoroughly clean the entire area. In order for epoxy to adhere correctly, all grease, oil, and debris must be removed. We achieve this by cleaning the area with our state-of-the-art pressure washing equipment. We may also need to grind or shot blast the area. Acid etching is also necessary to ensure full adhesion. If there is a coat of existing paint in the area, it will usually need to be removed before epoxy can be applied.
A Custom Plan
At Elite Trade Painting, we have years of experience in applying epoxy coatings within Vancouver-area homes and businesses, and we will create a custom plan and timetable for your project. This will help ensure minimal disruption to your daily activities. We can even work in the evenings, on weekends, and during holidays if necessary.
