Epoxy coatings have an average life span of 10-30 years. The service life depends on how severely exposed it's to various chemicals, temperature differences, abrasion, etc. In addition to the formulation of the plastic, the choice of filler and ballast is also affected by the properties of the coating. Generally, epoxy coatings are chemical resistant and abrasion-resistant. Solvent-free epoxy products have low volatility and are not flammable. During construction, you can continue to operate on the premises with modest effect. A faint odor can be sensed during the curing process. When working with epoxy, the work area must be marked with tape or similar. The curing time for epoxy is about one day per layer before you can enter the floor.
