Everything You Need To Know About Polyaspartic Flooring

Somewhere along the line, you might have seen an amazing garage with a whole row of sports cars, a wine bar, entertainment center – the works.

However, have you noticed how shiny the flooring for all of those garages were? All of them had floors that were so smooth and shiny that you could practically eat off of them. Not to mention, they give garages a high class polished look.

The secret to this is polyaspartic coating, a fairly recent type of concrete floor coating and sealer that turns any garage into a transformative experience. The following is a comprehensive guide to polyaspartic coatings from what it is, how it works, and what it can do for you and your garage.

What is this polyaspartic coating?

You can think of polyaspartic as a special type of polyurea. What is polyurea you ask? It’s a material developed in the ‘80s for coating floors and repairing materials. A resin is combined with a catalyst to jumpstart a reaction that creates the hard, shiny surface you see after.

What can it do?

Polyaspartic is great for coating and repairing materials. Essentially, if you have any cracked walls or flooring, polyaspartic can fix them right up and make them better looking and longer lasting than before.

What are the benefits?

Polyaspartic is popular for the following reasons:

  • It cures rapidly (From 5 to 120 minutes)
  • It can be applied to any surface temperature ranging from -30 degrees Fahrenheit to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • It is resistant to UV rays so it will never fade to yellow.
  • It is highly temperature resistant, being able to withstand up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • It is resistant to many different kinds of stains, meaning that an oil or wine spill won’t ruin the coating.
  • It has higher abrasion resistance than other coating materials such as urethane.
  • It has low viscosity meaning that it won’t deform or be ruined as easily.
  • It creates a shiny finish, giving any surface a smooth clean look.
