There are number of maintenance issues associated with swimming pools. Maintaining the swimming pool in the best functional state is of primary importance. Not the least important issue among a host other issues is waterproofing. Water penetration into the structure of the swimming pool must always be prevented to preserve the structural integrity of the swimming pool. Failure to prevent water invasion leads to costly repairs. Thus, waterproof finishing of the inner surface of a swimming pool is important. Waterproof paint is a suitable finishing material for inner surfaces of swimming pools.
Epotec epoxy for pools is a pool-grade epoxy paint which has many beneficial characteristics. These characteristics make a strong case for it to be used in swimming pools.
Suitable for both concrete and fiberglass swimming pools
Epotec forms a hard impenetrable barrier over the inner surface of a concrete swimming pool which prevents the passage of water molecules. The paint binds strongly with concrete. As a result, water fails to reach the steel reinforcements used in concrete swimming pools thereby averting any risk of corrosion or damage. Therefore, epotec can be used for concrete swimming pool repairs for waterproofing.
Epotec epoxy paint is also highly suitable for waterproofing fiberglass ground swimming pool. The inner surface of a fiberglass swimming pool called the gel coat gets worn out or damaged with the passage of time. Epotec epoxy paint for fiberglass creates a strong barrier over the gel coat which does not allow water to pass through it. Therefore, water is not able to reach the fiberglass outer structure of the swimming pool. Damaged or worn out fiberglass swimming pools must be repaired by fiberglass pool repair contractors prior to waterproofing by epotec paint.
Epotec epoxy paint for concrete can also be used for the following types of swimming pools.
- Fiberglass lined concrete swimming pools.
- Concrete swimming pools with pebblecrete finish.
- Concrete swimming pools with marblesheen finish.
Epotec epoxy paint forms a solid coating over the surface. The applied thickness of the coating remains the same over the years. This characteristic is at variance with conventional paints which tend to shrink. The primary reason for the solid nature of the paint is the presence of 100% solids in its chemical composition. This implies that no thinners or solvents are used in its manufacture.
Epotec epoxy paint can not only remain in immersed in water without getting affected adversely but can also withstand chemicals added to swimming pool to purify the water. This is due to chemically inert nature of the paint which prevents any kind of chemical reaction with any chemical.
The epotec paint coating can last for 7-14 years without the need for recoating. The life of the coating depends upon the applied thickness. Proper thickness of the coating ensures that it lasts for a long period of time.
Ease of application
Epotec epoxy paint comes in two tins. They can be mixed easily. Application is also easy because the paint flows out easily from brush or roller.
Wide colour option
A huge selection of epotec epoxy paint colours is available to suit different designs of swimming pools.
Epotec epoxy paint is much more superior than other types of finishes especially rendered finishes as evident by the point mentioned above.
