Polyurea floor coatings are the clear winner over traditional epoxy.
When it comes to applying a concrete coating at your home or business in the Charlotte, North Carolina area, you will usually hear about epoxy being used. What you might not know is that there is a far superior option available. At Spartan Concrete Coatings, we offer a polyurea floor coating system that is far stronger and isn’t prone to staining and peeling like epoxy paint is. It also won’t chip, flake or peel like epoxy coatings. In addition, while both epoxy and polyurea will give your floor a glossy shine, only polyurea floor coatings are flexible and impact resistant.
Polyurea is a type of elastomer. If that brings the word “elastic” to mind, then you’re beginning to understand how polyurea differs from epoxy. Polyurea is rubberier. It also cures faster, so think twice if you’re considering applying a polyurea coating yourself. This product won’t give you time to fix any mistakes. It’s incredibly unforgiving, so you should leave application of this type of floor coating to our manufacturer-certified professionals.
Polyurea floor coatings are the clear winner over traditional epoxy. Because they’re more flexible, the material moves with the concrete (hello, earthquakes!). They are also several times more durable than epoxy. Again, applying a polyurea floor coating is definitely NOT a DIY job. Our application experts will meticulously prepare the surface, extracting grease and stains and repairing any damaged or spalled concrete, among other steps. Preparation is key to creating a profile for a mechanical bond between the concrete and the coating.
The result is a smooth, attractive concrete floor that’s resistant to oil, grease, chemicals, extreme heat, and tire marks. Our polyurea floor coatings are available in various colors and a blend of flakes so that you can customize your floor to suit your preferences and objectives.
