Protecting Industrial Flooring with Polyaspartic Coatings

Protecting Industrial Flooring with Polyaspartic Coatings

When you hire a contractor to install new flooring in your industrial building, you want to know that it is going to last. New flooring is not cheap by any means, so it is important to make your investment last. If you are having a new concrete or resinous flooring system installed, consider protecting it with a polyaspartic coating.

What Are Polyaspartic Coatings?

Polyaspartic coatings are very similar to the popular polyurethane coating often used to seal concrete floors, but they are a more recent option, having only been developed in the 1990s. This type of coating was originally designed to protect steel from corrosion, but it is now being used in commercial and industrial applications to seal and protect concrete floors. In addition to adding durability and longevity to your concrete flooring, polyaspartic coatings are also low or zero VOC. They are also resistant to wear, abrasions, scratches, chemicals, UV light, and impact. What more could you ask for?

Installing Polyaspartic Coatings

When performed by an experienced contractor, installing polyaspartic coatings is a quick and safe process. It is possible for the contractor to control the rate of cure over a period of time ranging from 5 minutes up to 2 hours, depending on the size of the service area. Polyaspartic coatings are very versatile, ideal for use in industrial applications ranging from medical and educational facilities to museums, shopping malls, and office buildings. The beauty of this type of coating is that it can be customized to suit your project, so call a Düraamen representative to talk about details and schedule your installation.

In the same way that you have many options for concrete flooring, you also have a variety of choices in the type of sealer or protective coating you use. If you want your concrete surfaces to last a lifetime, polyaspartic coatings are definitely the way to go, and Düraamen is the name you need to remember.
