The concrete floor coatings market size will grow at a compound annual growth rate of six percent up to 2027. Polyurea coatings are high-solids, fast-curing, UV-resistant coatings that are a perfect fit for a garage floor coating system. Concrete surfaces undergo heavy use and are exposed to numerous chemicals on a daily basis. Polyurea coatings can be a perfect solution to protect your floors.
Polyaspartic coatings are a form of polyurea specifically formulated to resist UV light and protect against discoloration. Polyaspartics have proved to be resilient and effective in various applications, most commonly as a top coat. Some applications of polyaspartic coatings include industrial, commercial, and garage flooring.
Proper preparation of the surface is extremely important before applying polyaspartic coatings. Any stains, paint, and contamination should be completely removed from your garage floor. Repairing damage and filling any cracks is also recommended. Any signs of moisture may be a sign of moisture vapor transmission, and is one of the leading causes of failing concrete coatings. A professional can help assess and address moisture issues in your floor.
There are many reasons to consider polyurea garage floor coating. Read the article below to understand the four benefits of using polyaspartic coating for your garage floor.
1. Easy Installation
It can take you days to completely dry and cure typical high-build garage floor coatings such as epoxy. Besides, you’ll need to apply the layer during warm seasons, since most epoxies will not cure in cold weather.
The delayed application period can disrupt operations, especially when installation is done in a working facility.
Polyurea coatings take only a few hours to install and cure. Polyurea coating can cure five times faster than epoxy and adhere better with your concrete floors for longer service life.
In most cases, installations of polyurea and polyaspartic coatings will happen within a day, thus allowing you a quick return to service.
Some floor coatings lose their sparkle when used for an extended period. Polyaspartic coatings on your garage floor can resist piercing, scratching, and impact damage. Your garage floor will be ready to hold up to the demands of daily life.
More often than not, you’ll find oil and other chemical spillages on your garage floor. A polyurea floor, especially with a polyaspartic topcoat, can resist damage to the color of the different layers of a floor coating system. The coating allows your garage floor to keep its aesthetic value for many years.
3. Polyaspartic Coatings Withstand Extreme Temperatures
Polyurea garage floor coatings can usually be installed during any kind of weather. Other coatings, like epoxy, will need warm weather conditions to apply. After drying and curing, your garage floor will be ready to survive any temperatures your local climate may offer.
Installing polyaspartic polyurea coatings can be slightly more expensive to buy and install than cheaper epoxy products, but it’ll save you repair costs in the future. You won’t worry about your garage floor getting damaged by hot or cold temperatures or discoloration from ultra violet light exposure.
4. No Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs)
Many plastics and synthetic materials have VOCs that get released with time. Volatile organic chemicals can be hazardous to the environment and your body.
You should expect your polyurea polyaspartic garage floor coatings to have little-to-no VOCs. Products high in VOCs usually are low-quality and low-priced alternatives to the better and safer products used by true professionals.
