The Perils of Hot Tire Peel in Epoxy Coatings and the Penntek Solution by Symphony

Understanding the Challenge of Hot Tire Peel

Hot tire peel is a common but frustrating issue faced by many who have coated their garage floors with epoxy. This phenomenon occurs when the hot tires of a car, freshly driven and heated from the road, soften and adhere to the surface of an epoxy-coated garage floor. Upon cooling, the tires contract, often peeling or lifting the epoxy coating off the floor. This not only damages the aesthetic appeal of the floor but also compromises its protective qualities.

Why Standard Epoxy Coatings Fail

Many standard epoxy coatings are not equipped to handle the extreme heat and pressure exerted by hot tires. These coatings often have limited flexibility and poor thermal resistance, making them susceptible to peeling and delamination. Additionally, improper surface preparation or application can exacerbate the issue, leading to premature coating failure.
