Foundation Leak Repair
Coatings For Your Home
Due to recent advancements, several top class products appeared on the protective coatings market. Choosing a silicone based epoxy ester single component epoxy product, for example, will guarantee excellent resistance and unsurpassed flexibility, two very desirable elements of any coating system. Such products are reinforced with alkyd and urethane, two special components that augment the qualities of the protective coating. The interesting thing about such a waterproof floor coating is that it is the same product used on aircraft carriers. This means that, originally, it was designed to withstand extreme damage, such as jet fighter landings and take offs, fuel leaks, flaming jet exhausts and so on. Imagine how resistant such a protective coating would be on your driveway!
coatings are also used in protecting other materials, such as wood,
concrete, metal, fiberglass… and the list goes on. Not only do
they do their job with military precision, these epoxy coatings are
also lead-free, making them safe for the environment. When they dry,
the protective coatings are completely harmless and non-toxic, so you
don't have to worry about your pets or children. You can top the coating
with a clear finish, especially if you purchase one with UV inhibitors
that guarantee a long life. Such a finish would make the protected surface
look even better than it originally did, plus with the extra protection
it brings. When properly applied, such protective coatings do not chip
or break and most good manufacturers and retailers offer guarantees
that extend up to 5 years.
