WHAT ARE POLYUREA AND POLYASPARTIC COATINGS?
There are several reasons why polyurea and polyaspartic are better choices than epoxy for concrete floor coatings in Austin. Let’s take a look at a few of these reasons below:
Superior Protection Against Wear and Tear
Polyurea and polyaspartic concrete coatings are much more durable than epoxy coatings. They can withstand high levels of wear and tear, making them ideal for industrial and commercial applications.
Resistance to Chemicals
Epoxy coatings are not resistant to chemicals, which means that they can be damaged by exposure to cleaners, oils, and other substances. Polyurea and polyaspartic coatings, on the other hand, are highly resistant to chemicals. This makes them a better choice for surfaces that are regularly exposed to harsh chemicals.
Polyurea and polyaspartic coatings can be applied in a wide range of colors and finishes. This gives you the ability to create a custom look for your project. On the other hand, epoxy coatings are available in a limited number of colors and finishes.
Faster Curing Time
Epoxy coatings can take days or even weeks to cure completely. This can be a problem if you’re working on a tight deadline. Polyurea and polyaspartic coatings, on the other hand, cure much faster. At Casey Custom Decorative Concrete we can complete up to 1,000 sq. ft. in one day, ready for a full return to service in 24 hours!
Better UV Resistance
Epoxy coatings are not resistant to UV damage. This means that they can fade or discolor over time. Polyurea and polyaspartic coatings, on the other hand, are highly resistant to UV damage. This makes them a better choice for outdoor applications.
Polyurea and polyaspartic coatings are much more durable than epoxy coatings. You can expect them to last up to 15 years with proper maintenance. Epoxy coatings have a lifespan of about five years.
Value For Money
Polyurea and polyaspartic coatings may cost more upfront, but they will save you money in the long run. This is because they are much more durable than epoxy coatings and last longer.
Built-in anti-slip from 100% broadcast of flakes.
Easy to Maintain
The top coat is non-porous when dry – Antibacterial and Antimicrobial, making it easy to clean up with soap and water (no more power washing or scrubbing).
As you can see, there are many reasons why polyurea and polyaspartic coatings are a better choice than epoxy coatings. If you’re looking for a durable, long-lasting, and chemical-resistant coating, then polyurea or polyaspartic is the way to go.
