Epoxy is the cured end product of epoxy resins and forms a tough film similar to plastic.

 

Waterproof and resistant to heat & many chemicals it is a number one choice for industrial facilities especially for corrosion control on steel surfaces. Among the toughest available for commercial and industrial projects, most of these coatings are two-part formulas that must be mixed together at the job site prior to application.  In general, epoxies are known for their excellent adhesion properties.

 

Epoxy resins are ideal for concrete, drywall, masonry and steel  and can be applied to floors, walls and structural components. It is often used as a primer rather than a final coat to improve adhesion for other types of paints.

 

Fast drying with low volatility, epoxies provide high durability protection against abrasions with ease of cleaning and maintenance for any surface.

 

We work closely with our vendors and their lab technicians to select the best formula for your surfaces and ensure our finishes have a lasting surface bond that will provide years of reliable protection to your structures.

 

 

 

Elastomeric coatings usually contain polymeric materials, such as acrylic, and a white pigment, such as titanium dioxide, to make them opaque and reflective. As their name suggests, these coatings are highly flexible making them ideal for weatherproofing and bridging cracks in substrates to form a tight seal.

 

With the ability to expand and contract in extreme temperatures elastomeric coatings actually move with the surface they adhere to thus preventing cracks that would expose the covered surface and damage your structure.

 

Polyurethane is one of the toughest elastomeric materials available and greatly suited to rough surfaces such as masonry, stucco, brick and concrete...any surface where seepage can be a problem.  

 

Coating on metal provides a thin film, high gloss finish with exceptional weathering performance characteristics. This smooth, durable finish has superior resistance to corrosion, abrasion, and chemical exposure. Polyurethanes are normally used to topcoat high build epoxy.

 

Our specialists will be able to determine if an elastomeric coating or an epoxy coating is the right choice for your project.
