How Are Polyurea/Polyaspartic Coatings Applied?
Polyurea Polyaspartic coatings are the perfect solution for anyone looking to upgrade their concrete surfaces. These coatings not only provide a beautiful finish but also offer protection and durability that lasts for years. If you’re interested in learning more about Polyurea Polyaspartic coatings and the process of applying them, keep reading! In this blog post, we’ll provide a step-by-step guide to how we apply our Polyurea and Polyaspartic coatings.
Step 1: Preparation and Grinding
The first step in the application process is preparation and grinding. We start by diamond grinding the concrete base. This process helps to ensure proper adhesion of the coating to the surface. Additionally, it smooths out any rough spots and removes any contaminants on the surface. Dust is minimized by having all grinders hooked up to vacuum systems which ensures a clean and safe work environment.
Step 2: Repairs and Regrind
Before the coating process begins, any cracks or pits in the concrete surface must be repaired. We then use menders and fillers to fix all imperfections in the concrete. This step is important because it ensures a smooth and level surface for the coating to be applied. Once the mender has cured, we will grind over the concrete again to ensure a smooth surface.
Step 3: Base Coat and Paint Flake
Once the surface is properly prepped and repaired, our 100% solids, self-priming pure Polyurea basecoat is mixed and applied. Immediately after the basecoat application, the chip is generously broadcast by hand, providing both color and texture to the floor. The basecoat serves as the foundation for the coating and provides excellent adhesion to the surface. The chip adds both a decorative element and slip resistance to the surface.
Step 4: Scrape Chip
Once the basecoat has fully cured with the paint flakes in it, we begin our next step. The floor is then scraped to remove any loose or vertical standing flakes. We also vacuum up any loose or flakes that did not adhere to the concrete surface. This step ensures that the surface is smooth and even, ready for the final top coat.
Step 5: Top Coat
Lastly, the final step in the application process is to spread and roll out the UV stable Polyaspartic clear coat. This topcoat provides additional protection to the surface, making it more durable and resistant to damage. The clear coat also gives the surface a glossy and polished finish, making it look as good as new.
