Benefits of Epoxy Flooring

They are bright and very easy to maintain. Since they are a smooth and even surface once the coating is applied, your floor will be very easy to clean.
OLT Painting uses a highly durable Polyurea Polyaspartic coating system, which makes them much sturdier and more flexible than any other epoxy flooring available on the market.

Epoxy floor coatings protect the underlying concrete and are impervious to high temperatures or accidental spills. They are not affected by UV rays, do not contain any harmful chemicals, like VOCs, and are eco-friendly.
How it’s applied
At OLT Painting we have mastered the art of applying epoxy floor coatings. First, our trained technicians will grind the floors to get rid of any existing coatings that have failed or faded. This step is crucial in order to make the concrete porous to ensure the epoxy flooring will adhere to the concrete.
We use a three step process. First a primer/body coat is applied to the surface with a brush and roller. Decorative flakes are then added. Then a clear coat is applied once the epoxy has dried. This clear coat provides protection against chips, stains and scratches. The process usually takes 1-3 days from start to finish.
In Myrtle Beach epoxy flooring is available for residential, commercial and industrial floors.
