The Benefits of Using an Epoxy Primer on your floor

Be warned, when you are cleaning your epoxy floor, stay away from certain products. Using citrus cleaners or vinegar can also cause your epoxy floor to lose its glossy shine. These types of cleaners have acids that can slowly degloss your epoxy floor finish over time. Cleaners with soap also have the possibility of leaving streak marks on your floor and will increase the likelihood that your floor will become slippery when wet. This is why chemical cleaners such as simple green and ammonia are recommended for cleaning your epoxy floors.

Remember, your epoxy floor is extremely durable, but is not indestructible. Damage will occur and accidents are bound to happen. Fortunately most stains can easily be removed, with the right knowledge and a proper amount of elbow grease.

By now you should fully understand the best way to maintain your new floor for your brewery and are on a quick and easy trip to a clean epoxy floor. By sticking to basic maintenance and staying away from products that can be harmful to your floor, your epoxy floor should remain in pristine condition for years to come.

Epoxy primers provide numerous benefits for your floor coating. All of our Brew Floors products (with the exception of the BF I which a self priming 1 layer, 2 part system) come with a epoxy primer coat. In our experience many failed epoxy floors are due to not installing a primer before laying down the epoxy coating. Besides being an extrmeley thin and easy to work with product, our non-water based primers have a variety of advantages over cheap store bought epoxy alternatives. If you want a long lasting product that allows for proper application then using a primer is highly recommended.

Take a look below to see some of the benefits of using an epoxy primer and how they work.

  1. It’s interesting to know that it is recommended to using epoxy on your floor to prevent future problems. My husband and I are thinking about remodeling our garage, and we are looking for advice about what to do. I will let him know about your recommendations to choose the right materials.

  2. My husband is wanting to redo the garage floor but is wanting to know what the best kind for him will be. It’s good to know that when it comes to using a epoxy coating that there are actual benefits for using it. I like how you pointed out that one of the benefits is that it is long lasting. This will be great to have so that we don’t have to redo it again any time soon.

    1. Hi Alex, Epoxy Floor Coatings when applied correctly will last for a long time. With proper maintenance and care our epoxy systems will maintain there integrity for about 7-10 year before needing a recoat. We have seen floors that have ben down for over 15+ years and still look like new. Depending on the environment you are in, how much traffic the floor receives, and how well the floor was installed will all be factors in a floors life span. If you ever see an epoxy product that states “Ever-Lasting”, I would recommend not buying this as all epoxy floors will need maintenance and recoating at some point. If you have specific questions on any of our products feel free to email us at as we currently have have a summer discount of 10% going on!
