When it comes to painting there are many types of paints one can choose from and it might be confusing as to which kind of paint to settle for. In the painting of walls and floors what most people look for is paint that is durable and versatile.
This means that as long as it lasts for a long time due to its toughness it’s also versatile and can be painted on a wide variety of surfaces. A popular choice for most people is epoxy paints, the reason for this is that there are many advantages to using them.
Epoxy paint is a kind of paint that is made up of epoxy resin and a polyamine hardener and even if it was originally made for industrial use it has gained popularity to be used on other surfaces, not only in industries.
There are many advantages of using epoxy paints for walls and floors and here are some of the top reasons:
Epoxy paints once painted on a given surface can last for years without the need for a retouch. These paints are known to withstand wear and tear and all this has to do with the combination of the key elements making up the paints. The paints thus become highly suitable for areas that experience high traffic, especially the floors as it does not peel off.
Another key advantageous characteristic of epoxy paint is that it is resistant to water, heat, and chemicals. The fact that they are water resistant makes them the ideal choice for areas that experience high amounts of moisture such as kitchens and bathrooms. Being heat and chemical resistant makes the paints ideal for areas such as garages and workshops where chemical spills and high heat may be present.
Easy to maintain:
Areas painted with epoxy paints are easy to maintain, this is because you can clean them with ease. It does not matter the type of tool you use to clean be it a brush, vacuum, or broom there is little chance that the paint can be scraped away. This has to do with the water-resistant feature whereby dirt does not stick firmly thus making cleaning work much easier as all that is required is just soap and water
Surfaces painted using epoxy paints are very attractive because the paint has that shiny glossy look. The surfaces tend to shine and the fact that it’s dust resistant the surfaces will always look clean and visually appealing.
These are just a few reasons why epoxy paints are preferred for walls and floors. A paint job is not something anyone wants to do from time to time and since they are durable then they are a perfect choice.
The fact that they are versatile to different surfaces means that you can never go wrong with these kinds of paints as you can paint multiple places and on a wide range of floors and walls. Epoxy paints correctly applied and maintained can last for a very long time.
