The ins and outs of floor paints.
Floor coatings have become a useful tool when finishing today's homes. With seamless finishes and a multitude of colours to choose from. There is also a range of paints with different functions and price points.
For interiors we generally recommend a epoxy products for their extreme hardness and adhesion. As a primer we recommend using Elastotet EP-W - Water Based Epoxy Primer, to then finish in one of the many colours available in Eporex US - Epoxy Floor Paint. For a transparent coating one can opt for Elastotet TR (Gloss) or Elastotet-F TC (Matt).
With exteriors we often look for functionality.
Beta Rooflex is a silane reinforced acrylic elastomeric coating available in a various colours. It provides an elastic, flexible and cost effective coating that can also be used for patching up cracks in concrete and bitumen membrane. It has great water resistance and good UV resistance.
Lastotet PU provides a highly flexible, water vapour permeable coating that is extremely resistant to both water and UV. Such an application can be guaranteed for over 15 years. It is important that Lastotet PU is applied on to a firm concrete surface and is available in heat reflecting white. Priming with Elastotet EP-W is recommended. For high traffic areas a coat of Elastotet AR should be applied to boost mechanical strength.
