What Are Epoxy Spray Coatings?

What is an Epoxy Spray Coating?

An epoxy spray coating is made when two chemicals are combined – Epoxide Resin and a Polymine Hardener. An epoxide is very stable at room temperature and only cures (hardens or ‘sets’) when reacting with some kind of curing agent. Polyamine based hardeners are used to cure epoxy resins at room temperature. Once an epoxy is cured, it cannot be uncured.
Two-part epoxy coatings were developed for heavy duty service on metal substrates, but today this hard-wearing coating has a variety of uses in many industries.

What are the Advantages of a Spray Coating?

Epoxy spray coatings are known for their excellent adhesion, chemical and heat resistance, good mechanical properties and very good electrical insulating properties. They provide a tough, protective coating that is extremely strong and durable. The process is quick and effective which is often an advantage when a long ‘down time’ would make life difficult.

What Are Spray Coatings Used For and Are They Right For My Project?

Epoxy coatings are often used in industrial and automotive applications since they are heat resistant and are widely used as primers to improve the adhesion of automotive and marine paints – especially on metal surfaces where corrosion resistance is important.
For the same reasons they are also a great option for tanks and containers to prevent rusting and can be used on concrete and steel to protect against water, alkaline and acids. (Did you know, metal containers are often coated with epoxy to prevent rusting, especially for acidic foods?)

Our spray coatings can be used for corrosion protection and chemical resistance. Epoxy coatings can even be used for decorative flooring applications!
