Our concrete floor coating systems are specifically formulated to be strong and durable. This means that they are permanent. Once we apply our floor coatings, we are 100% sure they will adhere to the substrate. The life expectancy of our concrete floor coatings is the same as the substrate it is applied to.
Your concrete floor coating will last the life of the properly installed floor coating when following our cleaning and maintenance specifications. As with anything if it is not properly cared for and maintained it will not last as long as anticipated. We have a proprietary cleaner that will ease the cleaning of hard to remove stains from rubber tire marks to rust stains. It will enhance the beauty and maintain your warranty and extend the life of your topcoat.
It takes anywhere from 6-10 hours to complete a concrete floor coating project depending on its size. Projects 1,500 square feet or less can usually be completed in 1 day with larger projects taking 2 days. We strive to start and finish all projects in 1 day. We will not leave a project unfinished. The only delay we usually encounter is the rare occasion of rain.
NO, this is (1) of the advantages of a Polyurea/Polyspartic floor coating. Unlike epoxies, Polyureas are UV stable. In fact, our products have a lifetime guarantee not to fade.
We recommend waiting 4-6 hours before walking on a new concrete floor coating, 12 hours for medium weight objects such as boxes or light patio furniture, and 24 hours before anything heavy (i.e., heavy furniture, cars, tool boxes, etc.) is moved back onto the area that was coated.
Your concrete floor coating can be cleaned with a broom, garden hose, mop, or squeegee. We have a proprietary cleaner that will ease the cleaning of hard to remove stains from rubber tire marks to rust stains. It will enhance the beauty and maintain your warranty and extend the life of your top coat.
You can use any non-abrasive ammonia-based cleaner such as Simple Green, CLR, or ZEP Citrus Degreaser. For more stubborn problem areas such as road tar, you can use Goof Off 2.
Our sealers repel oil and oil is easily wiped off.
Polyaspartic coatings were introduced in the early 1990s by one of the world’s leading chemical companies, Bayer Material Science. This new technology was first employed as a protective steel coating, offering corrosion prevention for bridges and other harsh environment applications. Eventually the material was modified for additional types of applications, including resinous floor concrete coatings.
One of the primary benefits to Polyaspartic coatings is the material’s versatility. Standard solid color industrial floor coatings, 100% Coverage Flake and Quartz flooring systems are commonplace with Polyaspartic coatings. Recently, new decorative concrete floor coating applications, such as dye and seal and metallic floor coating systems have been developed with both Polyaspartic and Epoxy coating technology.
Yes, most Polyaspartic coatings systems are UV stable and are suitable for exterior applications.
Generally, in any type of environment where a resinous floor coating is called for, a Polyaspartic floor coating system may be used. This includes heavy traffic industrial and commercial flooring as well as residential garage floors, basements, porches, patios, and pool deck concrete coatings.
Polyaspartic floor coatings may be applied with a squeegee or 18” long 3/8” nap roller. Common methods include the Dip and Roll Method as well as the Ribbon and Roll method.
Yes, depending on the formulation, Polyaspartics may be applied within extremely low temperatures down to -40º Fahrenheit.
Polyaspartic floor coatings are designed to exhibit rapid curing capabilities and may dry in a matter of hours or less. Often these concrete coating systems provide for a next-day return to service.
We recommend waiting 4-6 hours before walking on a new coating, 12 hours for medium weight objects such as boxes or light patio furniture, and 24 hours before anything heavy (i.e., heavy furniture, cars, toolboxes, etc.) is moved back onto the area that was coated.
Polyaspartic and epoxy concrete floor coatings systems are high-performance materials that should only be installed by a certified coatings contractor. We are the certified firm serving Dayton, Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, and Richmond, Indiana.
Yes, and then some. Based on empirical testing data, Polyaspartic concrete floor coatings offer abrasion resistant capabilities that far exceed those of typical epoxy systems.
Yes, Polyaspartic floor coatings exhibit superior inter-coat adhesion vs. epoxy floor coatings. For old epoxy floor coatings that are still well adhered to the substrate, an installer can apply a new Polyaspartic top-coat over that area. The process for doing so includes first mechanically profiling the existing epoxy floor by sanding it. Following that, excess dust is vacuumed and the area is wiped with an appropriate solvent or adhesion promotor to clean the surface. The area is then properly prepared for a fresh Polyaspartic top-coat.
