Polyaspartic coatings, sealants, and topcoats offer a viable option for preserving concrete and industrial flooring. Düraamen of Washington, D.C., has the skills and expertise to help you choose the appropriate coating for your concrete floor. Polyaspartic is a type of polyurea that has been developed and refined over time as a means to combat corrosion, resist cracks, improve staining, and withstand the weight of expensive high-pressure equipment.
Polyaspartic coatings are perhaps the toughest coatings available and are ideal for use in industrial, manufacturing, commercial, food service, and other facilities. It also can be applied over decorative floor treatments.
So why use it? A chief benefit is that we can apply it in nearly any temperature—from a kitchen in an upscale restaurant to a storage garage of a manufacturing plant.
We recommend it as a means to combat the effects of abrasions, corrosion, chemical spills, and discoloration that can compromise the strength and durability of industrial and concrete floors. Other benefits are that it:
- bonds easily to most concrete surfaces
- cures to full strength in about an hour
- is flexible enough to meld small cracks
- can withstand high temperatures during application process
- has superior stain and ultraviolet resistance
- has low to zero VOC and odor
- can enhance the brilliance of decorative flooring
While epoxy coatings remain the standard bearer for industrial and concrete floors, increasingly, polyaspartic coatings are becoming the floor coating of choice for its flexibility, durability, and superior quality. Plus it takes less time to install and dry, allowing a manufacturing and packaging center, a conference room, or a medical laboratory to experience a quick return to service.
Epoxy coatings are a reliable and long-wearing flooring sealant but are generally less flexible and less resistant to abrasion, cannot be applied when the temperature is below freezing, and may not be colorfast.
