Self leveling epoxy garage floor coating is an excellent overlay for uneven garage floors, for it can repair run-down concrete and can withstand chemicals and oil spills. An epoxy garage floor coating is based on a polymer mixture of resin and hardener. By mixing the two compounds with a catalyst, a molecular chain becomes active. This starts an exothermic reaction which results in a smooth, flat and glossy (self smoothing) texture overlay on any floor. Time to get into the less complex part of garage floor coatings.
