Are you looking for information on finding the best covering for your garage floor? If so, then check out our epoxy garage floor coating reviews. Most people don’t realize it, but there is a large difference between different epoxy products meant for concrete floors. If you choose the wrong one you may not get the results you desire and, worse yet, you may be forced to go through the whole selection process again.
The main choice when looking at epoxy floor coatings is whether you are going to go with a two-part system or a water based one part product. The down side to the two-part is that it starts to cure as soon as the resin and the hardener are mixed together. This means, you have an effective time of about ten minutes in order to get it rolled out before the epoxy starts to harden and clump up. This downside is overshadowed by the fact that this system gives you a covering that is about twice as thick as the water based.
As you can imagine, the water based product only has about 40% of the amount of resin solids versus the two part because so much of the volume in the can is taken up with the water which is used as the spreading medium. This means the coating goes on easy but it is no where as thick as the standard resin/hardener product.
If you are looking for a good floor coating for your garage then keep this fact in mind. If you only plan to park your car in the garage, then the one part system will probably be alright. But if you plan to do any mechanical repairs you will want to go with the thicker covering. In fact, the normal epoxy coating is so thick and tough that you can actually weld at bench level and the sparks will not harm the covering.
