Garage Floors- Polyurea Polyaspartic Floor Coatings
Garage floors are enhanced with polyurea polyaspartic floor coatings. These floor coatings give standard grey floors a watery tone, glossy and vibrant or the customer can select a standard color. The color choices are enhanced by the decorative acrylic color chip options available. It takes a few four coats of material application, but within hours after the process you will have a new concrete flooring.
These polyaspartic coatings are relatively new to the market. They paved the way for a more dense and shiny coating for concrete in the 1990s. The concept behind these floor coatings includes the polyisocyanate which acts as a catalyst which reacts to the resin, to form of polymer compound. These decorative concrete coatings are used primarily by contractors with the decorative chips. However, they can also be used as sheer top coats for stamped coatings, color coatings, and acid stain jobs.
Thanks to new materials, the application of polyaspartic coatings has been made possible. These new materials have created coatings which can be applied in any manageable weather. They can be applied in temperatures as low as thirty degrees below zero and temperatures over one hundred and forty degrees Fahrenheit. Now the floor coating for the concrete can be applied during any season of the year. Thanks to greater abrasion, the polyurea polyaspartic coatings have better impact resistance and are UV light stable which means no more amber fading to the surface over time. The application of the material will cure and be completed within a matter of hours, making it a “low inconvenience product”. The contents of your garage can be put back the next day. Driving on the surface can resume in 24 hours from completion.
These coatings are resistant to oil and are stain-resistant making them the optimal coating to have on garage floors which are prone to tire marks or other stains. The coatings form bonds to concrete which is unmatched by any other coating and it does not whiten or amber over time. The coating also protects your concrete from mild acids. It can be considered water resistant because the floor coatings do not transmit water vapor.
Although garage floors are the most common use for the polyaspartic flooring, homeowners are enjoying the benefits of using the same finish on basement floors, sunroom floors, patios, pool decks, driveways and front entries. Homeowners love the durability and the custom color choices.
