What is Concrete Coating?

 

An informative guide to what is concrete coating.

Concrete floor coatings are liquid layers that will apply to cured concrete for decorative
purposes. This technology helps surfaces last longer by reducing maintenance costs. It
also increases the exterior appearance of the floor’s concrete surface, which may be more
appealing than traditional paints or sealants in most cases.

Comparing Concrete coating users.

Concrete floor coatings are a waterproof covering used for floors in garages, basements,
pool decks, concrete patios, storage facilities, factories, restaurants, offices. Pretty much
anything that has a concrete surface can be coated with either epoxy-based coating or
what we prefer Polyaspartic coating.

A well-coated surface provides the concrete a solid protective barrier against heavy traffic
dust, dirt, and other pollutants. The Polyaspartic-based floor coating also beautifies the look while simplifying its maintenance. The coating material, once dries, is skid and slip-
resistant as well.

However, remember that not all conditions will protect you from slipping or falling from
any surface, so we still recommend you use caution to protect your family and guests
when walking on your new floor coatings.

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE CONCRETE FLOOR
COATING PROCESS?

The concrete coatings surface must be prepared by a professional in a certain way before adding the Polyaspartic concrete coating system.

The preparation is where many companies or individuals fail to get right, and DIYers
attempt to do this on their own.

Using a diamond grinder to prepare the concrete floor, for example, is required to
ensure a smooth top layer finish, so the coating has a great infrastructure to work with.

Unfortunately, those machines cost upwards of $7000. Failure in the concrete coatings
preparation process can result in dwindling quality and a very short life expectancy.

Therefore, all steps must be taken to properly prepare the concrete, or else there might
not be anything left but a big mess of a concrete floor coating!

PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING THAT HAS A CONCRETE SURFACE CAN BE COATED WITH EITHER EPOXY-BASED COATING OR WHAT WE PREFER – POLYUREA COATING.

polyaspartic FLOOR COATING SYSTEMS.

The principal advantages of Polyaspartic floor coatings are their environmentally friendly
properties, their ability to cure quickly, their durability, and their flexibility to any type of
movement in case your concrete shift.

It possesses excellent low heat and high heat resistant traits, which makes it ideal for
homes in cities with unusual weather. This also means you never have to worry about
your floor coatings peeling due to hot tires on hot days.

The most important benefit of Polyaspartic concrete coatings is the ability to protect
your concrete from damage such as chemical spills and impacts. Polyaspartic concrete
coatings are also UV-resistant floor coatings, where its cheaper cousin, Epoxy, is not.

Polyaspartic coating systems are the most recommended and ideal for homes of any
type that has a concrete surface.

Epoxy floor coatings are pigmented to conceal stains common to concrete floors,
including chips, scratches, and scuffs.

Anti-slip epoxy coatings also improve the walking ability of your floor.

This coating is suitable for people to use on concrete around their homes, at car dealerships, on wheelchair ramps, and more.

You have the option to give the coating a smooth glossy look. However, to achieve this
matte effect, a protective layer of anti-slipped aggregate is placed on top.

In most cases, you can even have a concrete floor that has a mirrored-like effect.
Drawbacks are chipping and cracking over time, lower lifespan, and less durable than
Polyaspartic.

DRAWBACKS ARE CHIPPING AND CRACKING OVER TIME, LOWER LIFESPAN, AND LESS DURABLE THAN POLYASPARTIC.

Summary.

Whether you choose Epoxy or Polyaspartic Coatings (flake floors), it’s important to
understand the difference between them as they truly are quite different in their uses
and composition.

Either way, we hope you’ve become somewhat informed. Please don’t hesitate to reach
