Fast-Setting Polyaspartic Floor Coatings
Polyaspartic, a similar product to polyurea, is a relatively new class of floor coating system. Polyaspartic is starting to gain quite a bit of popularity among applicators in the flooring marketing and this is mostly due to its fast setting characteristics. Polyaspartic floor coating systems provide flooring applicators with the distinct advantage of being able to professionally install a strong, durable, protective floor coating in less than a day, and that’s from start to finish!*
Further to the obvious advantage of its quick installation, polyaspartic floor coatings can be applied to full thickness in one coat and has been proven to provide greater abrasion and impact resistance than epoxy floors. With excellent bonding characteristics and UV stability, polyaspartics are suitable for residential and commercial applications including, but definitely not limited to:
- garage floors
- retail facilities
- new car showrooms
- office spaces
Although polyaspartic can be more expensive than other coatings, such as epoxy, it is important to factor in the extra expense by taking into account reduced applicator labour costs and down time. Think of it this way … in the case of a regular one to two car garage floor, you can be walking on it that same day, have your belongings moved back in that evening and park your car in the garage the next day. With polyaspartic floor coatings you don’t have to wait 4 or 5 days to use your space again.
Polyaspartic floor coatings also give you the option to personalise your floor with beautiful colour combinations. With the inclusion of metallic pigments, acid stains, dyes, decorative vinyl flake chips or quartz beads (for added slip resistance), in fact you can add just about anything to this versatile coating, you can rest assured knowing that your floor will be unique and match your surrounding décor colours.
So, if you are looking at the numerous flooring options available on the market and want a floor covering that not only looks good, but is abrasion resistant, UV stable, easy to clean and can stand up to the day to day combat, I am sure will be surprised and delighted at the many features and benefits a polyaspartic flooring system has to offer.
* To be fair, it must be noted here that the one day install is subject to the size of the job and weather condition. Check with your flooring applicator to discuss your requirements.
