Polyaspartic Floor Coatings

Polyaspartic Floor Coatings

Polyaspartic and polyureas are within the same family of floor coatings, which is why they are often coupled together when people talk about them. They are one of the best concrete coatings available on the market, with many benefits.

These floor coatings are no DIY project, though – you need to hire a professional in order to have polyurea and polyaspartic floor coatings installed.

This is in part due to how quickly polyurea and polyaspartic coatings cure. If you aren’t an experienced technician, you could inadvertently ruin your floor due to its rapid curing time.

Done professionally, though, polyurea and polyaspartic coatings will ensure you can use your surfaces again within a day, and keep your floors beautiful and in good condition for years to come.

What’s The Difference Between Polyurea And Polyaspartic?

Polyurea is a subgroup of polyurethane, and is a two-component product. The two components mixed together result in a mixture that hardens very quickly, within minutes, which is why it takes professionals to apply, in addition to the specialized equipment required for the application process.

Polyaspartic is polyurea, but polyurea that hardens at a slower rate. This allows for garage floor coating experts to ensure that your floor is covered evenly before it hardens.

Polyurea is better for indoor applications, given the fact that it isn’t UV resistant. Polyaspartics are the best available option for outdoor applications, since they are UV resistant, extremely durable, and their slick-ness can be lessened by having a grit additive mixed into the top coat for slip resistance.

Why Choose Polyaspartic Floor Coatings?

Professionals recommend polyurea and polyaspartic floor coatings because they are up to six times stronger than epoxy floor coatings. They can withstand more damage, can be used inside and outside, last longer, and can be customized to look how you want them too.

Why Polyaspartic

Why You Should Use a Professional?

If you can DIY epoxy floor coatings, you may wonder why you can’t do the same thing for polyurea and polyaspartic floor coatings. This is because these products have very limited working time, meaning that you need to know exactly what you’re doing in order to ensure that they’re applied properly.

The preparation process requires heavy duty, professional equipment in order to grind the concrete down so that the polyurea and polyaspartic coatings can adhere correctly. The process of grinding concrete in order to prepare it can result in a lot of dust, which professionals use vacuums connected to the equipment in order to contain. They can also have fumes, depending on the manufacturer, which can result in eye irritation, headaches, and coughing.

You can’t DIY these floor coatings because they require professional expertise in order to ensure that everything is prepared, applied, and finished properly, so that your floor coating looks and functions how it should.

Cons
