What to Know About Polyurea and Polyaspartic Coatings

Polyaspartic and polyurea are both popular garage floor coating options. They were traditionally used as coatings for pipelines, sewers and manholes.

What to Know About Polyurea and Polyaspartic Coatings

In today’s post, your local flooring expert discusses the difference between polyaspartic and polyurea coatings.

Polyurea 

Polyurea is more flexible than epoxy. It has an elongation rate that reaches over 300 percent. This makes the material ideal for industrial pipeline coatings, spray-on bed liners and joint fillers. Most polyureas require expert installation due to their fast cure rate and need specialized equipment for installation.

Polyaspartic

Polyaspartic coating is a kind of aliphatic polyurea. It doesn’t cure as fast as polyurea, which extends the pot life of the product. Usually, a professional installer only has between 10-20 minutes to install the polyurea before it begins to set or cure completely.

Faster Installation

The installation for polyaspartic and polyurea floor coatings is way faster than epoxy garage floor coatings.

The fast cure rate of polyurea and polyaspartic floor coatings allow the installation to be completed quickly, even just one day. This means that you can already walk on the surface the following day. You won’t have to worry about where you’ll place your things while the coating is being applied. Epoxy can take three to five days to install and cure.

Polyaspartic coatings can be installed in different temperatures, even in extreme cold and heat. You won’t have to wait for the right season to have your garage floor coated.
