What Are Polyaspartic Concrete Coatings?

One of the latest trends in flooring is polyaspartic concrete coatings, also known as high-performance concrete coatings. This product creates a durable, glossy finish for your commercial or residential space.

Concrete can be a beautiful addition to your home or office, but it requires a significant amount of upkeep. Removing dirt and spills is difficult, and polishing concrete floors can be time-consuming.

In this article, we’ll detail what polyaspartic concrete coatings are and how they can benefit you.

The Basics of Polyaspartic Coatings

Polyaspartic concrete coatings are an environmentally safe product home or business owners apply to clean, dry cement or masonry surfaces. Once dried, polyaspartic creates a hard, durable, UV-stable finish resisting staining and chemicals.

The benefits of high-performance flooring include easy installation and low maintenance. You can use different cleaners to create a variety of finishes, depending on the look you want.

Polyaspartic coats are also waterproof and prevent further surface damage. This makes it the perfect product for commercial spaces requiring high traffic or near water sources like bathrooms or kitchens.

For a polyaspartic concrete coating, you can choose from various colors and textures to get the look you want. You can even mix colors to create a custom look.

Polyaspartic concrete coatings are also known as polyaspartic concrete overlay, high-performance concrete coatings, and commercial floor finishes.

Contractors apply the product with spray equipment or mop buckets, depending on the size of your project. Each application requires two thin layers to create the best finish.

Applying polyaspartic flooring is quick because you don’t have to wait for the initial coat to dry. Applying a second coat is just as fast, and you can even do it the same day if needed.

Polyaspartic concrete flooring costs will depend on the size of your project. On average, polyaspartic concrete flooring can be 15-45 percent more than other types of flooring.

Best Uses for Polyaspartic Coatings

You can use polyaspartic concrete overlay in residential and commercial spaces. It’s not as thick as other flooring options, such as epoxy paint or urethane, so applying it is quicker to large areas.

The product is ideal for the following purposes:

Outdoor patios and decks – The waterproof finish means you can use the flooring outdoors without worrying about rain, snow, or salt damage.

Commercial spaces – Restaurants with greasy kitchens need durable flooring that employees can easily clean. Large warehouses with heavy equipment benefit from the high-performance finish because it’s resistant to chemicals and water.

Kitchen counters – You can add shine to your kitchen counters with a polyaspartic concrete overlay. This is also a good option for bathrooms where you might have water on the counter.

Garage Floors – For a durable garage floor, use a polyaspartic concrete overlay to transform your garage. Garage flooring also provides traction that makes it possible to park cars on the floor without worrying about scratches or dings.

Basement Floors – Basement floors generally have poor traction and are cold from the surrounding ground. An overlay of polyaspartic can improve both issues for an overall better basement experience. Many homeowners apply polyaspartic to basement floors to provide an extra layer of protection against stains and chemicals.

Polyaspartic Flooring Vs. Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy is another popular choice for commercial flooring. One difference between polyaspartic concrete coatings and epoxy paint is the thickness of the application.

An epoxy coating can be up to 1/2 inch thick, making it more heat resistant than polyaspartic. Epoxy also doesn’t require a primer. You can apply it directly to most surfaces, including wood and metal.

Polyaspartic, however, is just 3/32″ thick and has a matte finish that doesn’t reflect light like some other flooring options. If your commercial space requires rugged protection from chemicals or standing water, then polyaspartic might be the better option.

Perhaps the most significant benefit of polyaspartic is its quick application time. Applying a second layer takes only 30 minutes, while epoxy needs to dry overnight before you can apply another coat.

This makes it possible to install polyaspartic in large areas like warehouses and factories during regular business hours without shutting down any ongoing operations. You can apply polyaspartic over most surfaces, including wood and metal.
