Polyaspartic floor coatings offer cutting-edge topcoat floor protection. Originally created to protect steel from corrosion, polyaspartic coatings now help safeguard many facilities’ floors from the daily challenges of heavy traffic, spills, and general wear and tear.
Often used as a high-performance topcoat alternative to epoxy and other resinous floor coatings, polyaspartic floor coatings provide rapid curing times and exceptional durability. A properly installed and well-maintained polyaspartic floor coating can last up to 20 years.
However, the floor’s lifespan depends on factors such as the quality of the installation and the volume of traffic the floor withstands. Trust our team at Armor Coating Co. for a professional polyaspartic floor coating installation. We have the skills and experience to do the job right.
Benefits of Polyaspartic Coatings
Unlike polyurea and other floor coating systems, polyaspartics deliver high abrasion resistance and don’t fade and yellow because of UV exposure. They also resist acid, chemicals, and stains, making them ideal for harsh environments, from garages and industrial floors to breweries and commercial kitchens.
Additional benefits of polyaspartic flooring include:
- Easy to clean
- Rapid curing
- High film build
- Quick and safe installation
- Luxurious look
Polyaspartic floor coatings give you the freedom to explore your artistic side with a full palette of color choices, textures, floor patterns, and finishes. Even more important, you won’t have to worry about protection for a long time.
Tips to Extend the Life of Your Polyaspartic Floor
A commercial garage floor with heavy traffic will have a shorter lifespan than a residential floor that receives little to no traffic. However, proper care and maintenance help prolong your floor’s useful life and make the most of your investment.
The following tips can help you extend the life of your polyaspartic floor coatings:
Hire Experts to Coat Your Floor
While a DIY coating may seem tempting, hiring an expert to install your polyaspartic floor coating guarantees the best results. Professional concrete coating companies offer high-quality materials, industry-leading equipment, and unique design options to fit your needs.
Vet potential contractors thoroughly and select a company you trust to do a spectacular job.
Clean Spills Immediately
Clean any spills, including acids, solvents, and caustics, immediately. If you let harsh liquids remain on the floor, they may discolor, soften, or completely damage your coating.
A polyaspartic coating system cures by cross-linking rather than by temperature or humidity. As a result, they work well in a wide range of temperatures and weather conditions. They have minimal odor and contain little VOCs compared to other coating materials.
As with every other part of your property, make it a point to clean your floor every one or two weeks to prevent dirt and debris from settling into the finish. If the coating appears stripped or damaged, contact your floor coating company for reapplication.
You also want to avoid moving heavy equipment across the floor and steer clear of harsh cleaners and abrasive brushes when cleaning.
Armor Coating Co prides itself on using only the highest quality coating products. We also follow our proven six-step process to guarantee the best results.
Step 1: Surface Preparation
We grind and vacuum the concrete surface to prepare it for coating and ensure strong adhesion.
Step 2: Repair
Next, we repair all uneven spots and cracks to create a smooth foundation for the coating.
Step 3: Coating
We apply a base coat of 100% polyurea self-priming epoxy.
Step 4: Flaking
We broadcast a polymer flake by hand to give the floor an even color and texture.
Step 5: Scraping
Once the basecoat cures, we’ll scrape away any excess chips.
Step 6: Sealing
Finally, we apply the polyaspartic top coat over the entire surface. Your new floor will be ready for light foot traffic after 12 hours.
