Make the Right Decision for Your Flooring Project! Understanding the Difference Between High and Low Solids Epoxy Flooring Products for Industrial Floors
Having a good understanding of the solids content in an epoxy flooring product is essential for ensuring that you get the best performance and durability out of your floor. This article will explain what solids content is and why it matters in order to help you make the best decision when selecting an epoxy flooring product.
So what does solids content in an epoxy product mean?
The solids content of a product refers to the percentage of its total weight that is made up of the resin and hardener components, as opposed to any solvents, water or other liquids present. Both resin and hardener are essential components of epoxy flooring products, so having a higher solids content usually translates into better overall performance. Products with higher solids content tend to have better coverage rates, last longer, and be more resistant to wear and tear, chemicals, and other environmental factors. On the other hand, products with lower solid contents may be easier to apply but may not provide as much protection over time.
Advantages of Higher Solid Epoxy Products
In addition to providing better performance and durability, another advantage to having a 100% solids content in your epoxy flooring product is that it increases usability and can be used in different applications such creating mortars, coving, patching holes, levelling floors or creating decorative floors such as metallics and more. This can be especially helpful for DIY users who are looking for a product that can be used in multiple tasks.
