Epoxy flooring is a popular concrete flooring sealant that protects your floors and adds a beautiful high-gloss shine. Working with a flooring professional, you can have epoxy coatings added to a variety of spaces in your home or business, upgrading the space and protecting your flooring.
How is Concrete Epoxy Coating Applied?
Epoxy coatings are applied in a multi-step process that starts with preparing the surface by grinding the concrete and filling in any cracks and holes. This creates a smooth base for the epoxy to be applied. After the surface is ready, an epoxy base coat will be applied. Chips of color are added by hand to give the epoxy a stone-looking finish and ensure even placement. The chips are then sanded down to create a smooth, even surface. A topcoat of polyaspartic sealer can be added to add extra strength and durability to the finished epoxy flooring.
Benefits of a Polyaspartic Topcoat
Adding a polyaspartic topcoat has many benefits for your floors. In addition to helping seal in your new epoxy, polyaspartic coatings are highly durable and add a high-gloss shine to your newly finished flooring.
Polyaspartic coatings are highly durable, making them a perfect addition to your floor coating. Polyaspartic material is scratch, stain, and chemical resistant, making it perfect for a variety of uses.
Easy to Clean
A polyaspartic coating is non-porous, making it moisture resistant and easy to clean. All your new floor will require is sweeping and the occasional wet mopping. Polyaspartic sealant’s non-porous nature also means that you can use almost any type of chemical cleaner if needed.
Epoxy can take a long time to cure, but with a polyaspartic coating, it can cure more quickly. Polyaspartic coatings allow you to use your flooring the same day it is installed, instead of waiting for several days to a week.
Low to No VOC’s
Some homeowners are concerned about the release of VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, which can be released from certain materials. Polyaspartic coatings have low to no VOCs, making them safe for both humans and pets.
