Epoxy-Based Paint

Definition

Not actually a paint, it is a plastic-like coating containing epoxy resin, that provides strength and durability and is resistant to staining and chemicals. It comes in a variety of colors and is also available as a clear coating.

Things you need to know

Two-part epoxy paint contains one part epoxy resin and one part polyamine hardener that must be mixed together just prior to application. It must be applied within a certain amount of time after mixing or it will dry out.

Cost Considerations

Different epoxy paints contain different levels of the solids that give them their strength. Cheaper versions contain less solids, which makes them thinner and easier to apply. Versions containing a higher percentage of solids will cost more, but they will create a thicker layer, and therefore last longer. Epoxy-based paint averages $35 to $55 per gallon.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
