Epoxies are polymer materials that are liquids and are converted to solid polymers by a chemical reaction.
Epoxy systems contain two components, resins and a hardener. The resin component is usually light, sometimes almost clear in color and nearly odor free. Hardeners are available in a clear form and in a variety of colors as well. When these two components are mixed together they will react chemically and link together irreversibly, after the chemical reaction has been completed, they will form a rigid plastic material which has the durability of steel once applied to a concrete surface.
Epoxies are the foundation of many commercial and industrial flooring applications. Epoxy coatings are typically used in automotive dealerships aisle ways, grocery stores, manufacturing facility floors, airplane hangers, water treatment plants, battery charging areas, auto service centers, warehouses and even in residential garages.Manhattan Epoxy Co
