All About Industrial Garage Floor Paint

Have you ever looked at your garage floor after sweeping it and thought to yourself how you could make it more presentable? Do you wonder if there’s a solution to making your floor last a lifetime? Instead of spending an arm and a leg replacing your existing floor, the next best thing is to purchase an affordable garage floor paint. You’ll achieve the look you’re going for and you won’t even have to hire someone to do it for you.
Just like many household products out in the market today, there are a variety of brands to choose from. The most popular garage floor paint is Epoxy type paint. Garage floor epoxy can be used for both residential and commercial garage floors. A commercial product is 100% solids Cycloaliphatic epoxy, which is a term describing the leftover result once the epoxy coating is completely dry. When a product is 100% solids it will then yield 100% dried material after the coating fully dries. Anything less than 100% solids will also yield that same amount in dried material. There are many advantages to choosing this type of paint over any other garage floor paint. Some of the advantages include:
o Quick and easy one-coat application with 18 hours dry time
o Slip, oil, and salt resistant
o Resistant to hot tire marks
o Chemical and abrasive resistant
o 4 times thicker than a water based coating
o The coating can be cleaned very easily with water and mild detergent
o Low odor
Garage floor paint gives you the option of purchasing an array of basecoat colors to match the atmosphere of your garage. You can choose from an earthy tan color to a bright red color that will certainly give your floor new life. Garage floor paint also comes with the option of custom flake and standard flake designs to give your floor a little more character. For a custom flake design you can pick and choose from four options: light, fine, medium, or heavy. If you want to go for a standard design, there’s a variety of options from a gold flake design to even a latte flake design if you happen to be a coffee lover. Are you drawn to fluorescent colors? Neon colored flakes will bring back the 80’s in one application.
Choosing the right color can be a bit difficult and so can knowing how much paint you actually need.
You can purchase paint for your garage in kits or buy the epoxy material in buckets. You will have to measure your garage and find out its square footage then you can purchase the amount you need.
Using a garage floor paint can make any garage come alive and the upkeep to a minimum. If you’re looking for that showroom finish, or just a solution to keep the durability of your garage floor, then  a 100 % industrial epoxy solid paint is definitely the route to go.
