Epoxy floor paint has been widely used in various fields because of its excellent wear resistance, pressure resistance, acid and alkali resistance and decorative properties. In the actual application process, some consumers have such questions: can epoxy floor paint be used outdoors? The following epoxy floor paint manufacturers to give you a detailed analysis. Epoxy floor paint can not be used outdoors for the following reasons:
1. Weather resistance of epoxy resin is very poor: epoxy resin is composed of at least two epoxy groups. The chain of epoxy group is easy to break under ultraviolet radiation, resulting in powdering of resin film. Therefore, epoxy anti-corrosion products can not be used for outdoor protection.
2. Epoxy paint has excellent physical and mechanical properties, the most prominent is its strong adhesion to metals; its chemical resistance and oil resistance are also very good, especially alkali resistance is very good.
3. Epoxy floor paint has strong adhesion, tough film, excellent alkali resistance, good insulation and chemical resistance. However, the curing rate is slow, and it is easy to pulverize in outdoor use. There are also acrylic floor paints specially used outdoors, which are mainly used for outdoor exposure and durable ground.
4. Epoxy floor paints are generally used indoors because of their poor yellowing resistance, but you can consider doing some darker epoxy floor paints. It is suggested that waterproofing be considered in construction.
