Enamel-like paint composed of epoxy resins. Epoxy paints provide a strong, dimensionally stable and wear resistant surface. Most epoxy paints are two-component systems that are mixed immediately prior to use. Some one-component epoxies are formulated with ketimines which react with moisture to release amine curing agents.
