What is epoxy primer?
Protecting walls from external damages is one thing Indigo Paints is great at. We have a long-lasting solution for such damages in the name of ‘Epoxy Primer’. It is a proper base for topcoats that provides an exquisite finish.
It is an airtight sealer that protects the primer before the walls are ready for paint. It also acts as a binding ingredient between the concrete, and the topcoat of the paint. Epoxy primer paint protects the walls from extreme weather conditions. The wearing away of the paint, and the shine become difficult as it has Zinc Phosphate – the more the thickness, the better your walls inside-out will be protected against anything and everything.
Differences between a Primer and an Epoxy Primer:
● A primer makes the concrete ready for the next stage. Whereas, the ‘Indigo Paints’ epoxy primer is a sealer that binds the concrete with the paint.
● A primer is mostly white or neutral in colour. However, an epoxy primer paint comes in various shades that does true justice to the shading factor.
● A primer is sandable. However, an epoxy primer is non-sandable.
● A primer covers scratches, and huge waves. Whereas, an epoxy primer is a non-porous sealer that protects the base primer from the paint.
● A primer alone cannot increase the life of the paint. However, epoxy primer paint increases the life of the paint with one coat alone.
What is Epoxy Floor Coating?
It is an in-demand commercial, and industrial floor coating. It is directly applied to concrete so that heavy materials do not damage the surface and stays durable for long. Epoxy floor coating provides warehouses, water treatment plants, shopping malls, marine applications, theatres etc. the leverage of being safe for employees, inventory, and machinery.
