Epoxy Coating Basics

Epoxy coatings are a type of epoxy resin designed to deliver the highest levels of paint performance and the experts at Advanced Building Restoration are the industry professionals of choice to handle your next epoxy coatings project.

An epoxy resin

An epoxy resin is produced by combining an epoxide (a special type of molecule made up of oxygen and carbon) with various hardening agents. The result of this mixture is a tough, plastic-like film that is resistant to water and many chemicals.

Many epoxy coatings are two-component coatings, just like the epoxy glue in your kitchen utility drawer. The components are stored separately, and are mixed at the job site. Once mixed in the proper proportions, the epoxy coating is ready for application. The advantages of epoxy coatings include fast dry times, good protection against abrasion and low volatility.

Advanced Building Restoration has more than 21 years of experience in the field of epoxy coating and we are ready to take on your next epoxy coating project.

Epoxy Coating UsesSome of the most common uses for epoxy coatings are in industrial and commercial settings, where the tough nature of the epoxy paint stands up to hard use. Epoxy coatings are most often used for interior applications, particularly on walls and floors.

Some epoxy coatings are not used as the final coat for a product. Rather, the epoxy paint is used as a primer to improve the adhesion characteristics of other layers of paint.

At CSX the facilities managers entrust their projects to the pros at Advanced Building Restorations, where Epoxy coatings are often used for industrial applications of coating steel or other metals. The epoxy produces a tough, protective barrier that bonds to metal extremely well. Epoxy coatings also help control corrosion of metal products. Additionally, a special type of epoxy coating, fusion bonded epoxy coating, is used to protect the steel and iron used in underground and marine construction from corrosion.
