Your garage is one of the most traffic-heavy places in your home. It takes the heavyweight of your cars and is more prone to having chemicals spilled on it from home projects. Protective epoxy coatings can provide many benefits to your garage flooring. Take care of your garage and give it the treatment it deserves with a professionally installed protective epoxy floor coating.
What is an epoxy floor coating?
Epoxy floor coatings are a layer of sealant that is applied to concrete flooring that adds a high-gloss shine and protects the concrete beneath. Epoxy is a popular choice for garages because it can withstand the beating garage floors take from daily activities like walking, heavy machinery like cars, and home projects.
At California Marble, we apply a topcoat of polyaspartic coating, which is stronger than epoxy. Polyaspartic topcoats help to further reinforce the epoxy and provide a stronger top layer four times more durable than traditional epoxy flooring.
Benefits of a Polyaspartic Top Coat
There are many benefits of using a 100% epoxy base with a polyaspartic topcoat. Polyaspartic topcoats are more durable than epoxy alone, easy to clean, and can cure faster.
Easy to Clean
Polyaspartic coatings are non-porous, creating an easy-to-clean surface. To keep polyaspartic garage floors clean, only sweeping and occasional mopping is required. Because of its non-porous nature, polyaspartic coatings do not trap moisture and a variety of cleaners can be used on them if necessary without damage.
Polyaspartic floors are highly durable, up to four times more durable than epoxy alone. Polyaspartic coatings are scratch, stain, and chemical resistant. Your garage floors will look new for years to come with a polyaspartic coating.
Epoxy coatings can take over a week to cure on their own and are slowed down by cold temperatures. By adding a polyaspartic topcoat, the cure time is significantly reduced, allowing you to use your new flooring the same day it is installed. Polyaspartic coating cure time is not dependent on weather, making it convenient to install in any climate or time of year.
Low to No VOC’s
The release of VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, is a concern that homeowners have when it comes to floor coatings like epoxy. Depending on the exact polyaspartic coating used, they release little to no VOCs, making it a safe option for both humans and pets.
Epoxy floors and polyaspartic coatings come in many colors and textures, allowing you to transform your garage into almost anything you can imagine. Options can include solid colors, textures, patterns, and even metallics and glitter.
100% UV Stable
Epoxy coatings can turn yellow and fade with exposure to UV rays from the sun. Polyaspartic topcoats are 100% UV stable, meaning they will not fade or yellow, staying as bright and vibrant as the day they were installed for years to come.
Epoxy-polyaspartic floor coatings are more cost-effective than replacing your current garage flooring. Polyaspartic topcoats help to protect the concrete beneath, making it last longer than it would without a protective coating.
