For anyone seeking a flooring solution that combines durability with versatility, polyaspartic coatings are a superior choice. Keep reading to explore just how versatile they can be! Our name may be Ohio Garage Interiors, but our coating system is ideal for a multitude of applications.

What Is Polyaspartic Coating?

Polyaspartic coating is a floor coating known for its rapid curing time, durability and resistance to various kinds of wear and tear. Initially developed for industrial applications, this coating is a polymer that belongs to the polyurea family. The unique properties allow application in both low- and high-temperature settings, making it an ideal choice for various environments.

Polyaspartic coatings offer excellent protection against stains, chemicals and UV exposure, ensuring a long-lasting finish that maintains its aesthetic appeal over time. Another standout feature is the variety of available colors and finishes. Whether you prefer a solid color, metallic effect, or decorative flakes, there’s a polyaspartic coating to suit your aesthetic preferences and design goals.

A Quick Look at the Polyaspartic Coating System Installation Process

Polyaspartic is a type of protective coating system applied over concrete surfaces. The installation is completed in just two days, making it easier for our customers to carry on with normal life or business. Our technicians carry out each step with exceptional care, attention and precision for superior end results.

  1. Concrete Prep: A mechanical diamond grinding process is used to roughen the surface and prepare it to bind firmly with the polymer coating.
  2. Basecoat: The first layer of high-quality epoxy primer is poured, spread throughout the garage with a squeegee and then rolled even.
  3. Flakes: Decorative flakes are spread over the surface while the coatings are still wet. The next day, the flakes that didn’t adhere to the basecoat are scraped, broomed and vacuumed.
  4. Overnight Curing: The floor is left to cure overnight.
  5. Finish Coat: A polyaspartic topcoat is applied over the flakes and grit is applied for texture.
  6. Final Cure: After a day or two of letting the floor fully cure, it’s ready to use!
  7. A Lifetime of Enjoyment: At this point, the installation of your new garage floor coating system is complete and you can begin to use it.

Ideal Locations for Polyaspartic Flooring

Polyaspartic coating’s unique properties make it a versatile solution for both residential and commercial applications. Where can you install polyaspartic coatings?

Residential Garages and Basements

Polyaspartic flooring is particularly well-suited for residential garages and basements due to its superior durability and resistance to various types of damage. In environments like garages, the flooring is often subject to heavy loads, chemical spills and extreme temperature fluctuations — all of which polyaspartic coatings can withstand without deteriorating.

Auto Body Shops

In auto body shops, flooring encounters frequent exposure to harsh chemicals, oil spills and heavy mechanical tools. Polyaspartic flooring is an excellent choice for these environments because its formulation is resistant to chemical spills, abrasion and impact. Additionally, the rapid curing time of polyaspartic coatings means that shop operations can resume quickly, minimizing downtime.

Polyaspartic flooring is also a premier choice for gyms because it can withstand constant foot traffic and heavy equipment while providing a non-slip surface, enhancing safety for gym-goers. Its resilience against sweat and spilled water, which are common in gym environments, keeps the floor hygienic and easy to clean.

Woodworking Shops

Woodworking shops are laden with dust, wood chips and, occasionally, harsh chemicals such as stains and finishes. Polyaspartic flooring has a seamless and impermeable surface that prevents sawdust and other particles from settling, making clean-ups a breeze. Further, its toughness prevents scratches and dents from dropped tools or heavy machinery, preserving the shop’s appearance and functionality.

Other Spaces Where Hard, Easy-to-Clean Surfaces Are Needed

Polyaspartic flooring has benefits beyond industrial, residential and commercial environments — it’s equally advantageous for educational institutions and healthcare facilities. Schools and hospitals require flooring that can hold out against heavy foot traffic and frequent cleaning, and polyaspartic floors meet these requirements while offering a visually appealing finish.

Additionally, the fast, two-day installation process is ideal for time-sensitive projects that can easily be completed during school breaks or hospital renovations.
