Concrete includes three materials: aggregate (that is, gravel or rocks), water, and Portland cement. These components are combined and then poured. As the newly poured concrete dries and cures over time, these three materials become stronger together. The concrete curing process requires particular temperature and moisture levels to maintain strength and prevent cracking, although tiny cracks may appear regardless of the quality.
Sealed Concrete Increases Durability for Your Concrete Base
What is the best way to ensure your patio or garage flooring maintains its longevity for years to come? Epoxy coating provides a sealant for your concrete base, protecting the hardened mixture from damage through drops, spills, cracks, and sun damage.
Here are just some of the benefits you can expect from coating:
How is Coating Applied?
- Concrete is mixed and poured.
- The concrete must dry and finish curing. This process can take a few weeks.
- Once the concrete is ready, contractors utilize a diamond grinder to remove all minuscule imperfections on the concrete surface.
- Epoxy resin is mixed and poured over the concrete surface.
- Flooring is left to cure once more.
- The resulting sealant is colored or clear, based on the desired outcome.
