Wondering if you should choose epoxy or polyaspartic floor coating? You might want to take note that garage floor epoxy has a tendency to bubble, while polyaspartic coatings do not usually have this kind of issue post-installation. Read on to know why.
Epoxy coatings have their fair share of advantages such as durability and cost-effectiveness. However, one common problem seen in this type of coating is the formation of bubbles on the surface of the coating as it dries. These bubbles are typically formed through a process called outgassing, which occurs when there is a change in the room’s temperature while the coating is curing. Apart from temperature shifts, an increased level of humidity may also cause the epoxy coating to not set properly and therefore create bubbles.
Polyaspartic coatings are among the most reliable garage floor coatings that you can find. They usually have very low VOCs, so they do not tend to suffer from outgassing issues during or after application. This type of coating also sets quickly, making it less likely to trap air while it is curing.
Another benefit that you can get from polyaspartic coatings is their incredible resistance against stains, impacts, punctures, chemical spills, and direct contact with high temperatures. Additionally, they do not require regular waxing, saving you from additional expenses in the long run. You simply need to sand the surface and apply an extra layer of topcoat to revive its beautiful shine.
