Scientists have recently developed a new wonder material called Polyaspartic Polyurea.
This product is currently revolutionising the concrete floor coating and sealing industry because it can be applied at nearly any temperature, bonds easily to nearly any concrete surface, cures to full strength within half an hour, is flexible enough to fill small cracks, can withstand high temperatures, and has superior stain and UV resistance.
With this product, it is imperative that the substrate moisture vapor emission rate cannot be high and we need to have the proper solids content in the polyaspartic coating to allow it to wet out the concrete surface to develop a proper bond.
As always with floor coatings, there are pros and cons. With polyaspartic coatings we think believe that the benefits outweigh the problems. Essentially this product should only be installed by professionals who have extensive floor coating experience as the advantage of a fast cure can become a detriment if the material sets before application is complete.
The cost ratio to performance ratio of this system coupled with ease of application and fast turnaround times is increasingly making polyaspartic the modern material of choice for today’s heavy duty floor.
- UV stable
- Stain resistant
- High film build (up to 18 millimetres in a single coat)
- Crystal clear
- High abrasion resistance
- Rapid curing (from 5 to 120 minutes, depending on the formulation)
- Can be successfully applied at surface temperatures from -30°C to 65°C
- Bubble-free surfaces even at high humidity
- Made with a high solids content which means low or no volatile organics (VOCs)
The cured coating can handle temperatures up to 175°C
