An appropriate thin film topcoat is a very effective way of providing a floor with additional polymer attributes and longer wear. This provides the flooring system the extra properties to make it a truly superior value, based on the facility’s unique needs. For example, one may have a space that experiences heavy traffic from pedestrians as well as rubber-wheeled or steel-wheeled carts which requires the ideal abrasion-resistant topcoat. Alternatively, one may have a laboratory or battery storage area in the facility that requires resistance to sulfuric acid and other corrosives which require high performance topcoats. The slip resistance of a concrete covering system is completely customizable and may need a higher level of skid resistance in one area of the facility than in another. Employing a properly-selected high performance topcoat as a method of either spreading or encapsulating the choice of slip-resistant aggregate is an effective floor finishing method.
The most well-known option for a clear top coat is epoxy. It is available in water based, solvent based, and 100% solid formulation. Up until the last few years, polyurethane, also known as “urethane” for short, has long been considered the high performance top coat option for floor coatings.
The interest in 2-part polyurea and polyaspartic coatings for floors has grown tremendously in the last several years. New formulations that allow for better application techniques have made these a popular choice for the commercial floor coating market.
Polyurea is a subgroup of polyurethane. Polyaspartic, technically known as polyaspartic aliphatic polyurea or PAP for short, is a type of polyurea both have similar benefits to polyurethane in terms of durability and protection, as well as other benefits that polyurethane does not have.
