For garage floor coating companies like ours, polyaspartic coatings are worth considering in these kinds of applications. Read on as we explain further.
THE MOST COMMON FLOORING OPTIONS
Flooring in wet environments should be attractive, impervious to moisture, and resistant to slips. The following are some of the common materials used in these areas but tend to have shortcomings when it comes to meeting the criteria:
- Natural Stone – Slate and marble, to be specific, are coveted for their elegant appearance. However, they need to be sealed every few months to protect them against humidity. They also tend to be slippery when wet.
- Wood – A common flooring material in spas, saunas and steam rooms, wood flooring is likewise porous and absorbent. It can become a breeding ground for mold and bacteria, especially when exposed to humid and wet conditions.
- Tiles – These flooring materials can be manufactured to be slip-resistant and impervious to moisture, but they need frequent cleaning, especially along the grout lines where bacteria and mold can grow.
CONCRETE FLOORING WITH POLYASPARTIC COATING
As it turns out, polyaspartic coating on concrete flooring emerges as the best solution for wet and moist environments. Commonly used as garage floor coating, the material creates a non-porous and non-absorbent floor surface that can withstand temperature swings and high humidity levels. Along with concrete preparation techniques, a polyaspartic coating can bond and seep into the material effectively.
Polyaspartic floor coatings also have a higher abrasion and chemical resistance than other coating options, which means they can stand up to varying maintenance levels. Even when exposed to natural sunlight, they don’t turn yellow over time. They also come in various colors and designs, providing a one-of-a-kind look that matches any aesthetic.
