Polyaspartic Floor Coating System
You have many options when it comes to protecting your floor, including epoxy and urethane coatings. But have you considered a polyaspartic flooring material? You can choose polyaspartic flooring in Philadelphia, Lancaster, Baltimore and many other locations on the East Coast, and it just might be exactly what your company needs for its floors.
What Is Polyaspartic Flooring?
Polyaspartic flooring is an alternative to epoxy or urethane coating when restoring and enhancing your floor. It involves adding what is know as an aliphatic polyurea coating to your floor as a protective layer. Originally used for construction purposes such as coating steel girders on bridges due to its strong corrosion-resistant properties, polyaspartic coatings are now commonly found in concrete floor surfacing applications in much the same way epoxy and polyurethane coatings are.
What Are the Benefits of Polyaspartic Flooring?
Polyaspartic flooring is flexible, impact-resistant and leaves you with a brightly-colored floor with a high-gloss finish that lasts. There are two main reasons why polyaspartic flooring is becoming increasingly popular. Polyaspartics are a fast-setting resinous flooring system. The benefit of this over epoxies is that it allows the installer to apply multiple coats in 1 day. Where epoxies are typically limited to 1 coat per day.
The other reason is that polyaspartic coatings tend to be very low in VOCs (volatile organic compounds). This is very appealing to companies that are trying to become more environmentally friendly, and it also makes polyaspartic coatings very useful in confined areas that do not get a lot of ventilation, like railroad cars or storage tanks. In addition, if your area has local “green” laws that impose higher taxes on companies that produce higher levels of VOCs, this type of coating can help you avoid them.
Here are some more advantages of Polyaspartic Coatings:
- Can be applied in various weather conditions and temperatures
- High, yet controlled firm build-up
- Lower chance of outgassing bubbles appearing
- Low odor
- Dries clear and non-sticky
- Many colors & decorative chip options that won’t fade
How Do You Apply Polyaspartic Flooring?
While you can apply polyaspartic flooring yourself, it is not recommended. A professional flooring company like PennCoat knows the right polyaspartic coating for your floor and how to apply it evenly and efficiently to give you the best possible result and the best-looking floor. In addition, our skilled professionals can apply the coating quickly and with minimal disruption to your everyday activities.
Polyaspartic coatings can dry in just a few hours, so you can actually get back to using the area where the flooring is applied in a relatively short period of time.
