When discerning facilities need cutting-edge topcoat protection for their floors, they know they can trust in polyaspartic coatings. Originally created more than 20 years ago to protect steel from corrosion, polyaspartic coatings now help safeguard and protect many facilities’ concrete floor slabs from the daily challenges of spills, chemicals, ongoing foot and wheeled traffic, and general wear-and-tear. Often used as a high-performance topcoat over a variety of epoxy and other resinous flooring, polyaspartics, are very fast curing and extremely low odor. Examine the benefits of polyaspartic coatings, as well as the various industry floor applications for which they can be utilised.
Highly Resistant Protection
Facilities must choose a floor coating with great durability, cleanability and life cycle value. Polyaspartic coatings can withstand abrasion, chemicals, moderate impact, punctures, stains and slightly higher temperatures compared to other coatings. The flooring systems do not require costly and time-consuming routine waxing or resurfacing treatments. Additionally, polyaspartic coatings are UV-resistant and can be used outdoors without yellowing.
Quick and Safe Installation
For occupied facilities or those, such as many hospitals and pharmacies, that cannot shut down to accommodate typical floor coating installation, polyaspartic coatings offer very low odor installation and minimal disturbance to daily routine. Depending upon floor size and site conditions, installation and full cure can often be achieved in just one day. Unlike vinyl flooring and carpeting, high quality polyaspartic coatings do not outgas after installation. And because polyaspartic coatings have low to zero VOC, facilities need not worry that their floor renovation will degrade indoor air quality (IAQ).
Polyaspartic coatings can be used in customised decorative finishes to suit specific facilities’ flooring needs. This versatile resin system can be utilised as a topcoat or in various multi-coat, stand-alone systems. For added aesthetic value, facilities can request that their professionally-installed polyaspartic coatings, be conveniently tinted with special colorants at the job site. Decorative colored chips or colored quartz blends may be employed to create a variety of innovative designer looks to enhance any commercial décor.
Facilities may also require floor coatings to be customised in other ways, such as slip-resistance. Polyaspartic floor coatings’ skid-resistance is “made-to-order” on site, allowing the professional installer to vary the finish in accordance with the facility owner’s preference. This is especially useful when daily operations make some sections of a facility more or less slippery than others.
Industry Applications for Polyaspartic Coatings
Polyaspartic coatings are commonly implemented in a broad spectrum of applications within facilities across many different industries. They are desirable for installation in occupied buildings or wide-open public spaces where air or odour management is either not feasible or not convenient, including the following spaces:
