An epoxy is a two-part product formed by mixing a resin and hardener(activator). Epoxies do not “dry” like paints dry – by evaporation of water or oil-based solvent. On the contrary, they cure and harden by chemical reaction between the two elements. An Acrylic Epoxy Cement coating is an advanced blend of acrylic, epoxy and cement that protects concrete floorings and makes them waterproof. Epoxy coatings give you tough and attractive flooring. They chemically bond with the concrete. There are many colors and decorative options available.
