Epoxy paint on cement floor still gassing off 4 months later.

onebyoneOctober 19, 2011

I have an art studio that was built on top of an existing 1934 cement garage floor. The floor was painted with an epoxy paint that is still gassing off 4 months later. I cannot be in the studio without all the doors and the windows open and even then I get a headache after 20 min. I am looking for some expert advice on how to get rid of the odor.

Sounds like it may have been out of date or not mixed correctly.
Turn the heat up high an try an vaporize whatever is bothering you.

Once cured, epoxy 'anything' should not outgas...period. Do you use oilbase paint in your artwork?

If mixed correctly.

Screw up the proportions ad some of the initial material will remain unreacted.
