Epoxy Wall Paint Epoxy Wall Paint

Epoxy wall paint offers better performance when you paint walls with higher and lower areas. Check below for more information about this type of product.

Chemical Composition

Epoxy wall paint contains a thixotropic additive which promotes a sort of gel-type viscosity. The purpose of this additive is to prevent wall paint from collecting at the bottom of the wall and causing uneven coating. An additive, fumed silica, increases the thickness of this epoxy paint when resin is added. During its pot life, this paint is activated when it receives this thixotropic additive.

Application

During its application, the gelling action of an epoxy wall paint typically does not show up immediately on freshly painted walls.

Limitations

Although epoxy paint with thixotropic additive has advantages when used for covering walls, it is not recommended for painting floors. The reason is this: epoxy paint, when used to cover floors, needs to self-level. Because of its gelling effect, this paint will show brush and roller marks and will not level as smoothly as epoxy paints without this additive.
