Epoxy paint is used indoors where a hard, very
durable paint surface is needed. It's commonly used, therefore, for
flooring (and/or walls) in garages (both commercial and
residential), factories, grocery stores and other high-traffic
Epoxy has a glossy sheen and is very hard when dried.
This paint is waterproof and resistant to chemical
spills. Epoxy paint is also mixed with non-skid substances to create
Epoxy paint is not easy for the average home owner to
properly apply. In addition, epoxy paint discolors if exposed to a
lot of sunlight.
Epoxy paint takes several days to cure. During that
time, it gives off slightly toxic fume. It's best to stay away until
a newly painted room has fully dried.

There are three types of epoxy paint. They include 100% solid, solvent-based,
and water-based. Water-based varieties have a few advantages and disadvantages
when compared to the other types. This article will discuss some of the benefits
of using water-based epoxy paint.
Solvent-based epoxies produce toxic fumes and smoke that's
dangerous to breathe. Water-based epoxy paint doesn't cause these fumes.
Therefore, you won't have to seal off the area you're working in and keep people
away for days while the fumes clear.
Another benefit of using water-based epoxy paint is that it's
very easy to apply. This is quite important if you're a beginner or
non-professional. You can apply it just like you would with regular paint. You
can use a roller, sprayer, or brush to apply the pain.
Water-based epoxy paint is cheaper than solvent-based
alternatives. It is also very easy to clean up if you make a mess. A simple
solution of soap and warm water is usually enough to do the trick.
As mentioned earlier, water-based epoxy paint is very easy to
apply. However, it doesn't go onto slick surfaces easily like solvent-based
paints. Water-based types can go on a wide range of materials though including
concrete and plywood.
You will also find that the type of weather plays a role in
whether to use water-based epoxy paint. It's best not to use it in cold weather.
Conditions with high humidity levels will also cause problems. Neither high
humidity or cold weather poses a problem with solvent-based paints.
These are some of the advantages and disadvantages of using
water-based epoxy paint. It doesn't produce toxic fumes and is very easy to
apply. However, you'll have a hard time applying it to slick surfaces. It is
also best not to use it during cold weather or in an area with high humidity
