The Longevity and Durability of New Epoxy Coatings

In the vast landscape of flooring solutions, durability often tops the list of considerations. Especially in spaces with constant foot traffic or heavy machinery, a floor’s resilience is paramount. There was a time when meeting such conditions was the only criteria for considering an epoxy floor, but times have changed. Epoxy coatings blend science and practicality, ensuring longevity in every square foot. It’s this quality of epoxy floors, along with aesthetic appeal and safety, that has resulted in an increasing number of home and business owners choosing epoxy coatings for their floors.

Longevity of Epoxy Coatings

The chemistry behind epoxy is nothing short of impressive. The base substance consists of resins and hardeners. When these elements merge, they form a rigid plastic material. Not only is it tough, but it’s also resistant to degradation, ensuring that floors remain intact, irrespective of the challenges thrown their way. Of course, the durability of epoxy doesn’t absolve one of maintenance responsibilities. Regular cleaning, avoiding sharp impacts, and occasional inspections of your epoxy floor extend its lifespan considerably. Thankfully, the upkeep of epoxy is straightforward and undemanding.

Although epoxy coatings are built to last, there are many factors that affect their longevity. For example, heavy vehicles and pivoting tires twisting on the epoxy floor wear down the surface structure. Even massive amounts of foot traffic over the years could have an impact on the floor. The ultraviolet radiation from years of direct sunlight could gradually weaken the resilience of epoxy. A building’s underflooring, if insufficient, has an impact on any flooring put upon it, including epoxy coatings. And let’s not forget the likely impact of cleaning equipment and solvents. At Nevada Custom Coatings, we’ve witnessed the result of epoxy coatings that endure such treatment, and we make sure our epoxy coatings are adjusted to take whatever punishment they might need to endure in your environment. Our time in the business has led to a top-quality product that takes a pounding.

Quality Installation Promotes Endurance

Another angle that affects the longevity and durability of epoxy coatings has to do with the installers. At Nevada Custom Coatings, we recognize that our performance in installation is just as important as the performance of the epoxy itself. The skill of our installation team, the layer of thickness applied to the floor, the finishing touches like the topcoat, and even the choice of epoxy resin used in the project all have the potential to make or break the final product.
