Concrete Coating Specialists, Inc. offers San Diego, CA residents a 1-day polymer topping; polyurea polyaspartic coating. This is an excellent alternative to epoxy floors.
Polyurea polyaspartic floors, also known as chip flooring, provide an affordable and protective option for refinishing commercial kitchens, restrooms, hospitals, aircraft hangars and nearly all other commercial and industrial surfaces. You can also use this technology to remodel your garage and increase its resale value. These offer numerous benefits over epoxies and other concrete finishes.
Why Use Polyaspartic Coatings?
San Diegans like to use this garage concrete application because of its durability. Polyurea is also long lasting and can stand any weather. Tiny vinyl flecks, paint scrapings, and quartz beads mix with a clear or colored base coat to match any décor. It resists stains, hides imperfections, and offers three times the abrasion resistance of epoxy.
It can transform a worn, gray cement slab into a decorative surface that withstands high traffic, UV discoloration, and varying humidity.
Starting your residential or commercial project quickly means you achieve results in only a short time. Since this application can be applied at nearly any temperature and humidity level, you avoid delays due to the California weather. They also come in different colors that can be customized with decorative acrylic chips.
One thing that commercial property owners love about polyurea polyaspartic coatings is it’s easy to apply, and cures fast, which only takes 1 day! Its fast drying feature benefits commercial spaces because it doesn’t disturb the business operation much.
Polyurea polyaspartic coatings are also high performance, weather resistant, uv resistant, chemical resistant, abrasion resistant, impact resistant, waterproof, low VOC, low odor, non-toxic, and safe around children, and that’s just some of the advantages of why you should use polyurea polyaspartic coatings.
Our team begins by grinding the floor so more coating can penetrate the concrete. We repair any cracks and then use various staining methods to add color. Our installers prime the surface with low-VOC polyaspartics and then embed decorative chips or grit to add more color and traction.
Finally, the team applied a coat of sealer to complete the project. The area is typically ready for foot traffic within a few hours and can accommodate a vehicle within one day.
Polyaspartic floor coatings are best used for commercial spaces like hospitals, restaurants, car repair shops, and parking lots. Polyureas can be installed in residential spaces as a garage floor coating, and in industrial spaces, it is best used for warehouses with heavy equipment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: How much does polyurea coating cost?
Ans: Generally, the pricing of polyurea coating differs accordingly. But on average, polyurea costs between $4.50 and $7.50 per square foot. And if you opt to purchase a gallon of a full percentage of polyurea, you may have to pay around $35 to $38.
Q2: Is Polyaspartic better than epoxy?
Ans: Nowadays, polyaspartic is the more recommended option to achieve a seamless, durable finish of a garage floor. Compared to epoxy, polyaspartic floors have a flexible finish, making them more durable than epoxy. In addition, polyaspartic doesn’t chip, scratch, or scuff easily.
Furthermore, one layer of polyaspartic dries quickly in an hour or less, while a layer of epoxy can take at least 16 hours to completely dry. Long exposure to sunlight and UV may be also a factor that will affect your decision in choosing. Epoxy can fade and turn yellow after prolonged exposure to sunlight.
However, a polyaspartic-treated flooring can resist discoloration even after extended exposure to UV. Hence, these factors make you pay for an extra penny if you opt to go for polyaspartic.
Q3: What is the difference between polyurea and polyaspartic?
Ans: Polyurea is a subgroup of polyutherane. It forms when an isocyanate creates a reaction with water (polyetheramine) in order to produce a urea linkage. Meanwhile, polyapartic is a kind of aliphatic polyurea. Polyaspartic conquers the challenges met with the extremely fast cure time by extending the pot life of the product by allowing a longer pot life, hence, extending the time of application.
