Polyaspartic Floor Coating

POLYASPARTIC header

Polyaspartic is used for corrosion resistant coating and repair material comparable to epoxy and polyurethane. Polyaspartic chemistry was first introduced in the early 1990s making it a relatively new class of coating. All polyureas are two-part systems, meaning that a resin has to be mixed with a catalyst to create the curing reaction that hardens the material. Originally only having a 3 second Pot life made for extremely difficult applications using high-pressure spray guns with the two parts being mixed at the spray tips. Polyaspartic polyurea (or simply polyaspartics) overcomes this difficulty increasing the pot life up to two hours depending formulation.

With a fast curing time, it is able to be applied overnight allowing minimal downtime for your business. Applications include commercial hangers, kitchens, garages, and restrooms, or any other application seeking stain resistance or needing to withstand heavy abrasion. As well being UV stable it will not yellow over time it.

Benefits of Polyaspartic Floor Coating

Can be applied at nearly any temperature, bonds easily to nearly any concrete surface, cures to full strength within half an hour, is flexible enough to bridge small cracks, can withstand high temperatures when cured, and has superior stain and UV resistance

  • Rapid curing (from 5 to 120 minutes, depending on the formulation)
  • Can be successfully applied at surface temperatures from -34°C to 60°C
  • Very low viscosity-equivalent to water-which gives it outstanding wetting ability on a properly prepared concrete floor
  • High film build (up to 18 mils in a single coat)
  • Bubble-free surfaces even at high humidity (although high humidity can speed up the cure time considerably)
  • Pot life of 5 to 120 minutes
  • UV stable, so it will never turn yellow-and, can provide UV protection to underlying coatings
  • Made with a high solids content (as high as 100%), which means low or no volatile organics (VOCs) during application
  • The cured coating can handle temperatures up to 350°F
  • Crystal clear and does not blush white from moisture in the concrete
  • Able to resist most stains, especially from oils and fats and even from red wine
  • High abrasion resistance-higher than epoxy or urethane
  • May be able to resist higher internal moisture vapour emission rates than some other non-breathing coatings-although this is an issue that is currently being investigated
