According to Ball w ith Sher w in- Williams, epox y coatings remain among the most popular and economical solutions for f loors. "I would say the majority of the systems are still epox y-based," Ball said. "For ease of application and cost considerations, it's a structural system that adds the most versa- tility to a job. You can get solvent- based, water-based, and all the way through to 100 -percent solids. Epoxy offers the most options. Polyurethanes have also made strides, going from solvent-based to solids and water-based, but they're still limited because of mil thickness and aesthetics."
