Why Don’t Normal Floor Coatings Work On Driveways?
Many homeowners get confused when told they can’t get a driveway coating. After all, floor coatings are meant to make concrete stronger and more durable. There are grit-additives you
can have the pros mix in in order to make them slip-resistant. They prevent damage from moisture and chemicals. They grant you the ability to ensure that your floors meet your desired
aesthetic appeal, so… What gives?
It comes down to the type of floor coating used. Normal epoxy coatings aren’t great for outdoor applications. This is because they can be very slippery when wet, only last about 5 years or so,
and turn yellow in the sun – and your driveway is always in the sun.
However, there are other types of floor coatings that can be applied to driveways, such as
driveway seals and driveway epoxy sand overlays.
How Do Epoxy Sand Overlays Work?
So, epoxy is in the name. How do these overlays differ from the normal epoxy coatings that you shouldn’t put on your driveway? It comes down to formulation. Driveway epoxy sand overlays are a 2-component system combined with kiln-dried and properly graded sands. Combined, these create a stunning overlay with features you don’t typically find in the more traditional concrete overlays. Some of the benefits of driveway epoxy sand overlays include:
● They bond directly with your concrete’s surface. This allows for optimal chemical
resistance and even waterproofing.
● Said bond strength gives you an exceptionally durable coating that is also flexible
enough to move with concrete’s natural expansion and contraction process.
● They don’t shrink, which minimizes the risk of cracking.
● The sand in the overlay gives you a beautifully slip-resistant texture for improved safety
● They’re both economical and long-lasting, which makes them superior to typical epoxy coatings and ideal for driveway applications.
● They can address crack repair and surface defects for a more beautiful driveway that
increases your curb appeal.
● They’re engineered to maintain their color – no yellowing in the sun here.
Your driveway sees a lot of wear and tear, both from you driving on it and from the elements. A driveway epoxy sand overlay keeps it protected, extending the lifespan of your driveway. Plus, they just look good.
