Epoxy is a resin-based coating available in a beautiful array of colors, styles, and textures. Tough, affordable, and highly customizable - it's easy to see why epoxy is rising in popularity. Here at [COMPANY_NAME], we use three styles of epoxy paint:
100 Percent Solid Epoxy:
Solid epoxy is basically pure epoxy uncut by water or solvent. Solid epoxy is typically only used in certain cases where an extremely tough coating is necessary. Manufacturing facilities and industrial factories are two prime candidates. Since it's undiluted, solid epoxy is more expensive than other varieties, but is a good investment if you need a long-lasting coating.
To make water-based epoxy, we cut pure epoxy with water in a 40/60 ratio. This type of epoxy is commonly used in homes and businesses since it's less intense than pure epoxy and also more affordable. It doesn't dry as quickly as pure epoxy, so we're able to add colors, flakes, and garage floor paint.
Similar to water-based epoxy, we instead cut pure epoxy with a chemical solvent instead of water. We can decorate it with any colors and designs you have in mind. Keep in mind that the chemical solvent is powerful, so you'll have to leave the area while we work.

Slippery floors are dangerous because they greatly increase the odds of someone falling and getting hurt. Epoxy itself isn't any more or less slippery than traditional flooring types, but we do have the option of adding non-slip additives.
Do I need a non-slip epoxy garage floor coating?
When it comes to non-slip additives to epoxy, there's no right or wrong or answer. Instead, think about how you're going to use the flooring. If the epoxy is for a garage floor coating, it's probably going to be exposed to fluids from your car and the outdoors. Whenever you have liquid pooling on your floor, it's going to be easier to sleep on. Non-slip additives can help reduce the hazard of wet garage flooring.
A basement floor, on the other hand, won't be exposed to liquids dripping off your car. Many people also choose to dress up their basement with area rugs, which further cuts down on the odds of slipping. However, if you use your basement as a workshop space or have a walk-out basement, you may want to consider non-slip epoxy.
