Epoxy Coatings = Time, Money, & Mess

To be applied properly, most epoxy coatings require cured concrete (time) and surface prep (time) prior to application (more time). Furthermore, the application process is messy, wasteful, and potentially hazardous to employees. XR QuikLiner simply unfolds and slips on the form—it's that easy and effortless.
