What is the difference between polyurea coatings and epoxy coatings?
Epoxy coatings protect the base concrete. It’s extremely durable, but all epoxy will eventually fade and yellow if it’s exposed to direct sunlight over time. Polyurea coatings are much more durable and long-lasting than epoxy. This type of coating is resistant to damage from the sun, and won’t fade over time. It’s resistant to most liquids, including water and oil, and is much more environmentally friendly.
When can I start using my new floor?
You can start using your new floor after 1-2 days. If you choose Polyurea for your garage floor coating, you will be able to use your garage floor the very next day due to the fast-drying qualities associated with this type of flooring.
Is the floor covering slippery?
The floor epoxy and polyurea coatings can be slippery when wet because they are impervious to liquids. A full layer of chips adds texture to help with prevent slipperiness. A special anti-slip product can be added to the topcoat for an additional charge if desired.
How do I clean my new floor?
Our coatings are resistant to liquids, so water, oil and most chemicals can be easily wiped away when spilt. Dirt and debris can be swept up with a bristle broom, mop or light pressure wash.
Are the resins used harmful to me or the environment?
No. Our products have a high solids content, which means fewer solvents and less VOC’s emitted that evaporate into the air.
Does the floor scratch?
Nope! Our floor coatings are highly resistant to damage so they won’t scratch.
Does the flooring leave a smell?
