Polyurea Coating-Benefits for your Garage Floor
What is Polyurea?
Polyurea is commonly used for waterproofing, corrosion protection, environment protection and much more. Polyurea is like an epoxy, which is similar to a synthetic paint-like material. It belongs to the polyurethane group. Polyurea is unique, due to its method of preparation, involving urea linkages in water and acts as a catalyst when combined with resin, making it tough and very hard. Also, due to its unique structure, polyurea is far more flexible than epoxy. Polyurea has been referred to as the “Holy Grail” of garage flooring materials. Even its main competitor, polyaspartic, is a product that uses polyurea as a base material.
Benefits of Polyurea Floor Coating
Polyurea garage floor coatings have become the market leaders because of their immense benefits. Here are a few of the important aspects:
- Time and Temperature
- Great finish and No Fading
- No fear of tires
- Less maintenance
One major benefit of polyurea is the fact that it can be applied at a huge range of temperatures, unlike epoxy. You can apply it during any season of the year and at any time of day. Secondly, its fast curing time means there is no need to wait long periods of time to let it dry.
The look that the new polyurea coating gives is crisp, sleek, and very clear. It doesn’t fade due to light, nor does it change color due to moisture. It makes your garage floor look as good as new as it lasts.
Since polyurea garage flooring is highly malleable and tough, it is highly resistant to stains. You don’t have to worry about tire marks being left on it, as the tires do not damage the polyurea coating as they may with a regular floor.
Due to its tough surface, and the fact that it is not susceptible to moisture, makes polyurea garage coatings easy to clean and does not require a lot of maintenance. This will keep your garage floor looking clean and bright without a lot of work for you.
