Wherever you go, you find concrete flooring — in businesses, shops, warehouses, malls, airports, backyard patios, garages, and even in living rooms. Every concrete floor is unique to itself, because concrete is used in many diverse ways. Therefore, it’s good to know that West Coast Epoxy offers products to protect and seal your concrete floor, so it can keep doing the job — or jobs — required of it.
But with different options to protect your concrete floor, which one is best? For now, let’s compare just two: Acrylic sealers and Epoxy sealers.
The Lighter Side of Sealers
Acrylic sealers are lightweight, typically used for coloring or polishing your concrete. They are made of large particles that spread out evenly when applied. Acrylic sealers are UV light resistant, so any added colors don’t fade. They are also water resistant. West Coast Epoxy, we can also add slip resistance to acrylic sealers for added protection against falls. Even so, acrylic sealers are best used in areas with minimal traffic due to their lesser strength.
The Heavier Side of Sealers
Epoxy sealers are made to take a pounding, among other types of wear. They are thicker, more adhesive, and significantly stronger than their acrylic counterparts. They not only offer protection from water, but also chemicals and other liquids. The epoxy mixture can even be adjusted or altered to match the challenges it will likely face from day-to-day. If large retail stores and airports prefer epoxy, rest assured that it will certainly protect your garage or home floor. Nevertheless, it might be more than you need for your circumstances.
