Polyaspartic flooring is a longstanding favorite in commercial and industrial spaces. In fact, the material itself was first developed as a corrosion-resistant steel coating in the 90s.
Polyaspartic floor coating also happens to be a wonderful option for residential spaces too! From garages to basements, homeowners are turning to this material to protect their floors.
A polyaspartic floor coating combines ester and various other materials to create an aliphatic polyurea sealer. The amount of ester present in the material will dictate how fast it dries and the amount of gas it emits during application. It has a similar look and feels to epoxy flooring – glossy, almost as if it were wet.
Once the solution is mixed together it has a clear, liquid appearance and doesn’t have a strong odor. During installation, you can include vibrant colors or textured chips for grip just like epoxy. But this is where their similarities end.
With the ability to change the properties of this material by including more or less ester, polyaspartic coatings are far more adaptable than traditional epoxy. Generally, it cures more quickly. It is also more flexible than epoxy so it’s less vulnerable to abrasions, chips, and scuffs.
Installing polyaspartic flooring is a fairly quick process. Installation and curing can wrap up in less than 24 hours. That means you can walk on your new flooring or even drive a car onto it the very next day. But it does take precision to achieve a quality finished product. We recommend leaving the installation to the pros.
There are so many reasons to install a polyaspartic flooring system. Here are a few reasons this is a worthwhile investment for residential and commercial buildings alike.
A polyaspartic floor coating has its downsides too. Keep some of these potential cons in mind when deciding if this flooring system is right for you.
Due to these “cons”, it’s really important to have a professional install the coating and work on any repairs down the line.
