Answering Your FAQs About Polyaspartic Floor Coating
Saturday, July 31st, 2021 by Brad Woolgar
A good floor coating is key in making sure that your property not only looks its best but is also protected from the elements and regular use. Polyaspartic coatings are an alternative floor coating that you can use if you don't want to use epoxy. If you have not come across it before, the following are a few FAQs to help you learn more about it.
How Long Will I Have to Wait For It to Cure or Set?
The biggest advantage of polyaspartic coating is its speedy curing period. Because it dries in a few hours, you only need to wait for a maximum of 24 hours before you can use the space in which you applied the coating. This is a lot faster than epoxy and polyurethane, which take up to a week to cure completely. If you want a floor coating that will not leave certain spaces off-limits for a long time, polyaspartic coating is the right solution for you.
Do I Have to First Treat Cracks?
Like with any other floor coating, any cracks or holes in the floor will need to be treated before application for the best results. Holes and cracks will have to first be sealed, followed by cleaning and vacuuming the floor to ensure that no debris and dust particles are trapped underneath the coating.
Is Polyaspartic Coating Costly?
A professional installation of polyaspartic coating can be a bit more expensive than other floor coatings. This higher initial cost is, however, offset by the longevity of the coating as it will not crack or peel in as short a span as polyurethane or epoxy will. While there are do-it-yourself polyaspartic coating sets on sale, you need to use your discretion when looking for the best option. Wrong application may end up costing you more over time, so it is generally best to enlist the help of an experienced professional.
Will Uneven Concrete Be An Issue?
Uneven concrete surfaces are unstable ones. As they will settle over time, this will lead to cracking of the polyaspartic coating. The same as with cracks, you have to first repair any uneven concrete to make sure that you are coating a good base.
