Chemical Resistant Epoxy Selection

October 20, 2016

Requirements for a Chemical Resistant Epoxy or Vinyl Ester


Our Epoxy and Vinyl Ester product lines has extensive uses in Chemical Containment
and Chemical Resistance projects. The kind of product and systems we recommend are
based on a number of factors.  First we need to know exactly what you are doing:

  1. Are you patching concrete that has been damaged already? If so what is the extent
    of the damage?
  2. Do you need a secondary containment coating? If so what kind of traffic (if any)
    will this area see? Many of our systems will handle very heavy traffic.
  3. Are there any cracks that need repairing? If so how many lineal feet of cracks
    are there, what is the average depth and what is the average width. Repairing the cracks
    is the first step in making your project water and chemical tight.
  4. Are you looking to grout tile? We have chemically resistant Epoxy Tile Grout that
    has excellent chemical resistance.
  5. Is there any petroleum oil saturated concrete in the area. If so we have a product
    for that too.
  6. Is there any moisture vapor that is being transmitted through the floor?  We
    have solutions for that so please bring that to our attention when you contact us.
  7. Is this in an area where Static Disruptive or Conductive materials are needed (typically
    only in an explosive environment or where delicate electronics must be protected
    from static discharge).
  8. Total square footage of area requiring Chemical
    Resistant Epoxy or Vinyl Ester.

Then we will need to know some specifics about the chemical you are trying to protect
against:

  1. What is the specific chemical (or chemicals) that you are trying to resist against?
  2. What is the specific concentration of the chemical (or chemicals)?
  3. What is the duration of the exposure, before it will be cleaned up (if ever)?
  4. Is the exposure at an elevated temperature? If so what is that temperature, and
    how long will the chemicals be at this elevated temperature

If you have this information when you contact us, we can quickly help you to decide
what chemical resistant system is best and most economical for you.

Here is some additional reading that might interest you.

How to Insure a Quality Installation of Epoxy

March 14, 2014

Epoxy Technical Support

By: Norm Lambert President and Technical Support Director

Your Successful Installation of Our Products is Our #1 goal.

When my wife Deb and I founded this company we made a promise to each other, our employees, and our customers to only provide high quality highly durable products, at an affordable cost, backed by the best technical support in the industry. Our company is a family owned company, large enough to fill any order given to us, but small enough to care about every order, even a single unit order.

Selecting the Right Epoxy Product for the Right Job

Technical support is where successful installations begin. Even the best products, at the best price are not the most affordable products if they are the wrong products for the job, or if they are installed incorrectly. Selecting the Right Product for the Right Job isn’t just a motto, it is a necessary part of a successful epoxy installation.

We look forward to your phone calls asking for our assistance in helping you select your product. We have decades of experience in our field, but you know your project the best. Together with what you know and what we know, we can find which of our products best suite your needs.

Once in a great while we have requests for which we don’t currently carry a product to successfully accomplish your goals. If we don’t have the Right Product for your job, we will also tell you that. It is the only way you can know that if we recommend a product from your description or specification, that it is the best one to suit your needs.

Dedicated Customer Service

Katey Fontaine, VP  and Chief Operations Officer and Director of Customer Service, is dedicated in doing everything she can to get your order taken quickly, and accurately. She then keeps track of the progress of each order to make sure that they get out of our facilities as quickly as possible and on to our customers who are eager to get started with their work.

Katey also works with the trucking companies that pick up the product and deliver it to you.  She has negotiated the best possible freight and ground rates so we can pass on the lowest possible shipping charges using the most reliable carriers.

Epoxy Installation Technical Support

Our technical support department’s job is just starting after you get our products in your hands.  We are dedicated to making sure that we answer all your questions clearly and accurately.  I WANT your follow up questions.  I have customers who are installing who apologize for contacting me with questions they feel are “trivial”, when in fact those questions might be the most important ones to ask for a successful high quality installation.

Our technical support staff each have decades of field and technical support experience. In most cases we have done something like, or very similar to what you are doing. So it makes it easy for us to understand your situation, and help your installation go as smoothly as possible.

The Ultimate Epoxy Selection, Ordering, and Installation Experience.

All of us here want to be sure you are delighted with your whole experience from your first phone call or email, until you are enjoying the benefits of of our products and your installation, for decades to come. We view your success as our success. Remember, your successful installation of our products is our #1 goal.

Proper mixing and installation is critical to the optimal success  of all product.  See  Installation Tips,Techdata, &MSDS for more details on our products.   Be sure to contact us with any questions and/or concerns that you  have.For more information please contact:

Why Use Epoxy.com Products in “Green” Buildings?

August 20, 2012

110614_2044_EpoxyChipFl10.pngEpoxy.com’s 100% solid products (which are most of our product line) are included in many “Green” buildings. The logic for that is this:

1. Epoxy.com 100% solid products have  no VOCs. So you are reducing the carbon emissions.

2. Typical Epoxy.com 100% solid systems have done their job for decades, and there is no reason to believe they will not last for decades more. I personally have jobs that I installed with them that go back as much as a third of a century, that are not even starting to show signs that they will need replacement. That is the ultimate in reuse.

3. There is no need to recycle a product that can be reused for decades, but you can use recycled materials like glass aggregate in the epoxy matrix.

Epoxy.com encourages our customers to order material as they need it and to use all their materials before their expiration. That is why we do not require large stocking orders from new dealers, like most other companies. We want our customers to use up material they buy from us and not have any for it run out of shelf life. However, if Epoxy.com products do run out of shelf life, they are typically mixed and cured before disposal as is consitered in under most if not all local regulations as inert as common trash.

Epoxy.com Epoxy Tile Grout and Epoxy Tile Adhesive Questions

August 13, 2010


Below are some of the questions that have been emailed to Norm Lambert at
norm@epoxy.com and some of his answers.
Have a question for Epoxy.com?  If so, please email Epoxy.com Technical Support.

Can Epoxy.com Epoxy Tile Grout and Epoxy Tile Adhesive be added to
conventional grout?

Q: “Can I add Epoxy.com Tile Grout and Tile Adhesive
to my own tile grout?”

Norm Lambert: No, sorry! 
Epoxy.com Product #225  is Water
Cleanable Tile Grout and Tile Adhesive is water cleanable not water based. 
Epoxy.com Product #225 is 100% solids epoxy that
is mixed with select strong dry fillers to give you a true 100% solids epoxy
grout.  Epoxy.com Product #225 contains no
Portland Cement.  Epoxy.com Product #225 is
waterproof and highly stain and chemical resistant.
Epoxy.com Product #225
  will not support mold and mildew growth.
Bottom line is that Epoxy.com Product #225 is as
easy to maintain (perhaps even easier) as the tile you are grouting and/or
bonding with it. Epoxy.com Product #225 comes in
regular grade as well as wall grade.
