POLYASPARTIC GARAGE FLOOR COATINGS
Getting your garage sealed is one of the best home improvement investments one can make. If you regularly work in a garage, you now how frustrating spills and damaged concrete can be. That’s is why concrete floor coating, metallic epoxy floor coating, polyaspartic garage floor coatings, and epoxy floor coatings for concrete are an excellent step toward having the garage of your dreams.
When choosing your floor coating, there are three categories to choose from. Paint, epoxy and Polyaspartic coatings. We offer all options, namely metallic epoxy floor coating, polyaspartic garage floor coatings, and epoxy floor coatings for concrete. Each offer unique benefits and downsides, but one is a cut above the rest. Polyurea/polyaspartic garagefloor coating is one garage flooring option that has created quite a buzz in the industry the last few years.
The first curing ability of this system is being billed as the “Holy Grail” of floor coatings and is advertised as the best of everything that a coating can do.
Polyurea is a subgroup of polyurethane. It is formed when isocyanates react with water or polyetheramines to create a urea linkage. Like epoxy, it is a 2-part component that mixes resin with a catalyst to cause the curing reaction that makes the material hard. It has an elongation rate that exceeds 300%, making it much more flexible than proxy.
Polyaspartic is a type of aliphatic polyurea. Polyaspartic conquer the difficulties of the extremely fast cure rate of polyurea in order to apply coating in a more traditional manner, with longer pot life of 5 to 120 minutes depending on the formulation. So, in essence, all polyaspartic are a polyurea, but not all polyurea are a polyaspartic.
BENEFITS OF POLYASPARTIC COATINGS
Coat at almost any temperature. Unlike epoxy, a polyaspartic coating can be applied in temperatures as low as -30F to as high as 140F depending on the formulation. That means one does not have to wait till spring or summer to coat his/her garage floor if he/she lives in a colder climate.
Fast cure time. Some polyaspartic blends cure in as little as 30 minutes and the installation process as a whole can take about one day.
Easy bonding. Polyaspartic adheres to concrete and many different surfaces with absolute ease.
Stain and UV resistance.

BENEFITS OF EPOXY FLOOR COATING FOR CONCRETE
Metallic epoxy floor coating, polyaspartic garage floor coatings and epoxy floor coatings for concrete offer many advantages.
The hardened and thick application that one gets from epoxy creates a coating that is very durable and resilient to impacts, chipping, chemicals, stains and surface abrasion.
The thicker coating also does a great job of covering over minor imperfections such as small spider cracks and flaws in the concrete.
As a topical coating it is also naturally moisture resistant.
