Paint waterproofing of swimming pools has become a new favourite of people due to a number of benefits associated with paints as compared to conventional finishing. Regardless of the type of swimming pool such as concrete or fiberglass, waterproofing the inner wall to prevent water penetration of the outer structure of the pool is crucial. The epotec pool paint is an epoxy paint which can be used for waterproofing both concrete as well as fiberglass swimming pools. This is an epoxy paint which has been specially developed for swimming pool water. The epotec epoxy paint remains in water without being affected either by the water molecules or the chemicals present in the water.
Epotec is the best concrete swimming pool paint Sydney for waterproofing. It firmly attaches to the concrete surface of the inner wall of a concrete swimming pool to form a strong barrier which separates the water molecules from the concrete. As a result, the steel reinforcements of the concrete swimming pool are kept separated from water. This is important because water causes corrosion in the steel reinforcements and weaken them leading to structural collapse of the swimming pool. Thus, as is evident, epotec should be used for waterproofing during concrete swimming pool construction Sydney. Epotec can also be used for waterproofing popular concrete swimming pool finishes such as pebblecrete or marblesheen. Epotec paint is also used for fiberglass lined concrete swimming pools.
Epotec is also the most appropriate choice for fiberglass pool resurfacing. The finishing of the inner surface of a fiberglass swimming pool is called the gel coat. The gel coat is responsible for preventing water from gaining access to the fiberglass shell of the swimming pool. The gel coat tends to wear out after more than 10 years of construction. The gel coat can also be affected by osmosis spots, algae growth, black spots, etc. In such cases, the gel coat is not able to perform its waterproofing action properly. Therefore, rejuvenating the gel coat using epotec paint restores its waterproofing action. Complete repairs of the gel coat and other necessary repairs must be carried out before using epotec paint for upgrading the gel coat. Epotec coating forms a strong shield over the gel coat and provides waterproofing for a minimum of 7 years.
Superior features of epotec
Epotec pool paint is not like conventional epoxy paints due to numerous reasons. Some of the features which make it superior have been mentioned here.
- Epotec is a completely solid paint. This means that the coating is hard and dry. Due to absence of solvents, there is no chance of shrinkage. Thus, the applied thickness of the coating remains the same at all times.
- Epotec paint is not affected by chemicals due to its inert nature. This makes the coating resistant against chemicals present in the pool water.
- Epotec paint coating is long lasting.
Colour range and price
