Why You Need Polyaspartic Coatings for Your Garage Floor

All kinds of buildings and homes get top coat protection for their floor, counter, bar, and tabletop surfaces. However, finding the most appropriate and cost-effective protective coating for these applications is challenging.

A quick online search for ‘epoxy coating companies near me’ will show you various types of floor coating from numerous manufacturers. So what sets polyaspartic coatings apart?

Let’s find out.

How to Apply Polyaspartic Coating

You first need to know that this coating dries fast, so you’ll have to act quickly. It has the viscosity and looks of water, i.e., it’s transparent unless you use color additives, practically unscented, and highly fluid.

Applying it is a straightforward operation. Pour polyaspartic ribbons on the floor and distribute them evenly using a squeegee or roller. The first coat should be dry enough to walk on in an hour or less, allowing you to get on with the second coat. Remember that it’s best to use the manufacturer’s recommendations for the appropriate thickness of the coating.

It may be a good idea to add non-skid traction compounds at this stage since polyaspartic is slicker than epoxy. Sprinkle them over the top after the second layer has been thoroughly distributed but hasn’t dried completely.

3 Benefits of Polyaspartic Coatings For Your Garage Floor

Polyaspartic floor coating is more durable than other types of coating. Read on to learn about the three benefits of applying polyaspartic coating to your floors.

Devoid of Organic Chemicals

Many plastics and synthetic materials contain VOCs that degrade over time. These volatile organic compounds may harm the environment and your health.

Your polyaspartic floor coatings should have low to no VOCs.

Durable & Oil-Proof

No matter how you apply them, the result is a surface that can withstand piercing, scratching, and impact damage to give you a garage floor that effortlessly withstands the rigors of daily living.

Oil and other chemical spills are a frequent occurrence on garage floors. A polyurea floor, particularly when combined with a polyaspartic topcoat, can withstand damage, letting to the color of the various layers of a floor coating system.

Damage & Wear Resistant

Facilities with high foot and vehicular traffic are better off with a long-lasting floor coating that’s easy to maintain and has a high lifetime value. Compared to other coatings, polyaspartic coatings can tolerate strong abrasions, chemicals, mild impact, punctures, stains, and significantly higher temperatures.

The flooring solutions do not need time-consuming and costly routine waxing or resurfacing procedures. Polyaspartic coatings are also UV-resistant and may be used outside without yellowing.

It’d be best to hire a specialist to apply the polyaspartic coating on your flooring. It is preferable to avoid battery acid spills, especially in commercial garages. Furthermore, you may modify the look by selecting your preferred color and chip selections.
