APC EPO100® Epoxy Resin range is a high performance product designed for Residential, Industrial and Commercial applications.
With the outstanding chemical resistance, durability, low porosity and strong bond strength EPO100® as a roll coat is idea for a simple garage application.
Applied as an interior system Plain Epoxy can give a high end designer feel to any home. A clear glaze coat such as EPO100G® can be applied to give the look of depth to the coat like a sheet of glass has been put over the floor.
** Epoxy can be effected by the effects of UV, this does not affect the chemical structure but can leave a slight yellowing hue at the front of the garage. A UV top coat such as Tetrathane Urethane of SPA60 Polyaspatic which both have a high UV resistance and protection.

Traditional Polished Concrete that has been processed through a series of mechanically ground "polishing/grinding" steps include the use of a APC Grout and Densicure densifier/hardener which penetrates into the concrete and creates a chemical reaction to help harden and dust proof the surface. During concrete polishing the surface is processed through a series of steps using a Diamond Grinder and Polishing Pads.
Alternatively there is the Cut and Coat System where the concrete is ground down to expose the desired level of stone and then coated with typically either a Urethane such as Tetrathane® or Liquathane® or an Epoxy such as EPO100G® Glaze which may also have a Urethane Tetrathane) top coat.
Cut and Coat systems advantage is they are non-porous therefore easier to keep stain free and are an easier system to install.
Both systems are very modern and attractive flooring alternatives to traditional tiles and carpet.
