This is the most durable type of epoxy material in a flooring system, which professional installers use and recommend. This type of floor coating can last up to 20 years, even when subjected to heavy human traffic or in surfaces that require protection against hot tire marks, possible abrasions and from chemical reactions of chemically potent substances. Professional installers make use of hardeners that will allow the epoxy floor coating to dry up into solid form, as it bonds with the concrete substrate.
A 100% solid epoxy floor coating can achieve a layer as thick as two millimeters but is sensitive to temperature. Thus, expert installers make it a point to ascertain if there is vapor-migration in the inner concrete, before this type of epoxy floor coating is applied.
