Exploring the Benefits of Polyaspartic Floor Coating 

October 1, 2022

Polyaspartic coating is a tough but flexible finish that resembles polyurethane and is often used instead of epoxy.

Many homeowners use the garage as more than space for their vehicle. Whether a workshop or a home gym, the garage should have floors in excellent condition. 

Polyaspartic coating is a tough but flexible finish that resembles polyurethane and is often used instead of epoxy. It has been in existence for decades but has only gained popularity recently. Homeowners searching for high-quality floor finishes should consider polyaspartic coating for the following reasons: 

Impressive durability

Because polyaspartic coating is suitable for high-traffic areas, its top feature is durability. As a result, this floor coating is prevalent in commercial spaces, hospitals, and pharmacies. 

It’s very cleanable, has excellent stain-resistant properties, and won’t scratch easily. These features make it the perfect choice for garage floors and basements. 

Quick drying time

Some floor coatings take ages to dry, which is an inconvenience. For example, homeowners might not have the time to wait an entire day for floor coating to dry. Also, they might not have dedicated storage space for items they must remove before applying the coating. 

None of this is a problem with polyaspartic floor coating. It will dry completely in under one hour, reducing inconvenience to the minimum. 

Air quality

Polyaspartic floor coating contains low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and virtually has no odor. As a result, unlike some floor finishes, homeowners don’t have to worry about unpleasant and toxic vapors and can breathe easier. 

Customization options

Homeowners with specific design ideas should consider polyaspartic floor coating. They can choose among numerous colors, visuals, and decorative floor chip flakes. Thus, the floor coating can match the rest of the garage perfectly. 

Resistance to fading

Choosing the right floor coating color is essential, but so is protecting the color from UV damage. Compared to some floor coatings, polyaspartic finish doesn’t turn yellow or lose color vibrancy, even after extended UV exposure. 

Polyaspartic vs. epoxy coating

It’s not uncommon for homeowners to choose between polyaspartic and epoxy coating for their garage floor. While epoxy is more affordable, which makes it appealing to some, it’s less durable and much more vulnerable to abrasion. 

Furthermore, epoxy takes up to 24 hours to dry correctly and requires more planning and organization. 

Also, the off-gassing from epoxy tends to lower air quality, meaning installers must wear protective gear. Finally, epoxy is prone to fading, and homeowners may notice floor discoloration. 

Choosing the best garage floor coating 

While epoxy coating might be the go-to choice for garage floors among many, polyaspartic coating is gaining popularity. This durable and UV-resistant floor coating might be slightly more expensive upfront but is a more cost-effective solution overall. 

It dries quickly and doesn’t contain volatile compounds. Therefore, it is a convenient and low-risk floor coating option. However, homeowners should consider hiring a professional service, as its quick drying time requires accuracy.
