Reasons to Choose Polyaspartic Floor Coating Over Epoxy
Monday, August 2nd, 2021 by Brad Woolgar
Your garage floor coating is important because it affects the appearance of your garage as well as its longevity. There are a variety of coatings available including epoxy and polyaspartic. If you have not come across the latter, which is newer than epoxy, the following are a few reasons why it may be the better coating to choose.
While epoxy is also durable and offers a hard finish, it is rigid and vulnerable to abrasion. Polyaspartic coating on the other hand is flexible and weathers impressively without scuffing, chipping, or getting unsightly scratches.
Unlike an epoxy coating which may take up to 16 hours to dry, a single polyaspartic coating takes an hour or less to dry. While this fast drying time means that you need to be very accurate while applying it, it also gives you more flexibility to do different activities like organizing your garage soon after applying the coating.
Because it has a smooth finish to it and low emission of gases, it can easily be used in a variety of situations. Its natural color adds a glossy sheen, giving concrete a wet appearance. It can, however, be paired with different colorants and decorative materials that will also serve the purpose of adding traction to it. This makes it possible to style it in a number of ways.
Not Affected by Weather Conditions
It can also be applied in different weather conditions as it is not affected by humidity in the air and dries fast. Even in wet weather, you will only need a brief dry spell to successfully apply a coating of polyaspartic.
Good Air Quality
Polyaspartic has low VOCs and practically no odors and gas emissions. This means that you don't need extensive gas protection while applying it, and you can also settle in a room in which it has been applied quite comfortably.
With only 11% of homeowners surveyed saying that they are satisfied with the way their garage is, there is a good chance you are looking for a long-lasting garage floor coating to give it new life.
Polyaspartic is the best garage floor coating to consider if you want a colorfast solution that won't be weathered by UV light over time. As long as you don't expose it to battery acid which weakens it, you should enjoy having it for quite some time.
