Get full proof waterproofing with epoxy paint Sydney

Swimming pools of all sizes and types whether in domestic households or commercial establishments require waterproofing to maintain their structural integrity. A strong and durable waterproofing solution is required for swimming pools for long term protection against pool water. Epotec epoxy paint Sydney is such a waterproofing solution developed for swimming pools. This is a solid paint with zero solvent content which provides flawless waterproofing for as much as 14 years. The paint coating remains unaffected by chemical content of the pool water and the UV rays of the sun.

Used for a variety of pools

The epoxy paint uses Sydney cover a plethora of swimming pool types including concrete and fiberglass swimming pools.

Concrete swimming pools- If you are going for concrete swimming pool construction Sydney, using epotec epoxy paint for waterproofing the inner surfaces is the best choice. Pool water makes its way through the inner surface of a concrete swimming pool in the absence of waterproofing. The water is detrimental to the steel reinforcements present in the structure of the concrete swimming pool and causes corrosion, concrete cancer and other types of damage. This leads to breakdown of the concrete swimming pool structure. By using epotec paint, such a scenario is avoided because water is unable to penetrate the concrete surface due to the presence of epotec coating. Upgrading the inner surfaces with epotec during concrete swimming pool repair Sydney in case of old swimming pools having some other type of waterproof finish is also recommended.

Concrete swimming pools with marblesheen finishing can also be waterproofed using epoxy paint for concrete Sydney. Marblesheen is a mixture of white cement and crushed marble chips which are used to give a finishing of 5-20 mm to concrete swimming pools. Marbelsheen finishing appears white with a smooth surface. This finish can get worn out with time and develop cracks, black stains, rust stains, etc. The marblesheen finish can also become soft or even detach completely from the concrete surface. In such cases, epotec paint is suitable for upgrading the swimming pool.

Pebblecrete is a mixture of selected pebbles and cement. It is also used for concrete swimming pool finishing. Damaged or worn out pebblecrete finishing can also be upgraded using epotec epoxy paint coating.

Thus, epotec is an efficient waterproof concrete swimming pool coating Sydney for all kinds of concrete swimming pools.

Fiberglass swimming pools- Fiberglass swimming pools feature an outer fiberglass shell made of fiberglass strands and resin and an inner surface with a finish called gel coat. Gel coat becomes non functional if it is damaged or worn out. Consequently, water starts leaking into the underlying structures of the swimming pool causing significant damage to the fiberglass shell. Epotec paint coating can be used to upgrade the damaged gel coat and restore the waterproofing function.

Fiberglass lined concrete swimming pools can also be waterproofed using epotec paint when the fiberglass lining breaks away or becomes weak due to a number of causes.

 

 

Thus, epotec is available for pool owners for waterproofing irrespective of the type of swimming pool they may own.

Beneficial features of epotec and other details

Simply constructing a swimming pool for domestic or commercial use is not enough because maintenance is equally important. A swimming pool has many associated maintenance issues one of which is waterproofing. However, there is now no need for elaborate measures for swimming pool waterproofing due to the advent of epotec epoxy pool paint. This is a pool paint which forms a hard surface coating over the inner walls of swimming pools and provides long term waterproofing.

Advantages

There are many advantages of using epotec pool paint for waterproofing.

  1. High waterproofing action- Epotec paint is the ultimate waterproofing solution for concrete swimming pool construction Sydney. This is because epotec chemically attaches to the concrete and forms an impermeable shield over the inner walls. This prevents water in either liquid or vapour form from moving through the concrete and invading the steel reinforcements of the concrete swimming pool structure. Epotec can also be incorporated at the time of concrete swimming pool repairs Sydney. In case of fiberglass swimming pools, epoxy paint for fiberglass Sydney is used to upgrade the gel coat. Gel coat is the finish of the inner surfaces of a fiberglass swimming pool which prevents pool water from reaching the outer fiberglass shell of the swimming pool. Epotec coating is required when the gel coat is damaged or worn out. Apart from concrete and fiberglass swimming pools, epotec can also be used for waterproofing damaged fiberglass lined concrete swimming pools and swimming pools with marblecrete or pebblesheen finishing.

 

  1. Solid coating- Epotec epoxy paint coating does not shrink and preserves the applied thickness even after curing. This happens because of the absence of thinners and solvents in this pool paint. A 100% solid chemical composition ensures that there is no liquid to evaporate during curing which retains the applied thickness. That is why applying a thick coat of paint is important to get a high-strength coating.

 

  1. Long lasting- Epotec paint coating lasts for about 14 years when applied properly and in specified thickness.

 

  1. Extensive colour range- Epotec epoxy paint colours Sydney are available in a plethora of shades suited for different pool types. The various available colours are sky blue, royal blue, slate grey, opal, chamois, glacier white and much more. Thus, there are many options before the pool owners.
