Evaluate Your Surface
The first step of any epoxy coating project is to evaluate the surface in which will receive the epoxy coating. If there is any cracks or damage, you may need to have it repaired before the coating can be applied. Choosing the right surface preparation will ensure that your epoxy coating will be long-lasting.
Consider Performance Requirements
Another important factor to consider when beginning any epoxy coating project is the performance requirements that you anticipate for the surface receiving the epoxy coating. For example, if the surface will be bearing heavy loads, weather and environmental, it is a good idea to choose a thicker coating system. Chemical exposure, thermal shock and abrasion are other important performance requirements to consider as well. These conditions will be important to consider when choosing your epoxy coating to best fit your needs.
Select the Proper Thickness
It is also extremely important to select a coating that is the proper thickness for your needs. Thin film coating will be up to 10 mils thick, while a high build coating will be up to 30 mils thick. Proper thickness will ensure a long-lasting epoxy coating.
