Epoxy is a thermosetting, industrial-grade resinous coating that works as a durable adhesive, binding the material to the surface. Epoxy coatings act as a sealant that is specifically designed to protect surfaces. They have low VOCs and are self levelling, producing a seamless surface that prevents corrosion over time. Epoxy bonds particularly well to correctly-prepared concrete surfaces and can be used to resurface old or worn concrete.

In the case of tough stains, follow these steps. Spills should be treated as quickly as possible. Firstly, sweep all dust and debris from the affected area. After this, mix a solution at five ounces of clear ammonia per gallon of hot water and then soak a hard foam mop in this mixture. Use the mop to then scrub the stain away. 

Using this method will eliminate many types of stains without jeapardising the epoxy itself.

Epoxy resin crystallisation is a common problem. It is a transition from the liquid to the natural solid state of epoxy. Epoxy resin is a “super-cooled” liquid, which means it remains liquid even when its temperature drops below freezing point. If enough “seeds” are formed, super-cooled liquids have a natural tendency to form crystals at lower temperatures. These tiny seeds grow over time and can eventually prevent the product from functioning properly. Click here to find out more about how to spot, prevent and reconstitute epoxy resin crystallisation.
