Epoxy paint is a two-part coating consisting of a catalyst and a resin. The two components combine to form a durable coating capable of standing up to a large amount of duress. If you paint walls with an epoxy coating, employ a specific preparation strategy based on the type of wall you are working on. Once you have prepared the surface, the application process is relatively uncomplicated.
