DIY- Acrylic Floor Paints

Painting your floor is not exactly the same as painting walls and other surfaces. Since it has high traffic and more chances of damage, the key thing to look out for is a formulation for superior durability.

There are two types of floor paint ? latex acrylic paint for concrete and pre-mixed one-part epoxy floor paints. Of the two, professionals go with the one-part epoxy paint. Epoxy resin mixed in with the acrylic latex creates a finish that bonds with concrete better, and provides strong resistance to mold and mildew, chemicals, and chipping.

In addition to these features, another consideration is the project?s life after application. While typical latex acrylic floor paint needs to be retouched once every 6 months to a year, one-part epoxy paint can last almost twice that long.
