Polyurea is a subgroup of polyurethane. It is formed when isocyanates react with water or polyetheramines to create a urea linkage. Like garage epoxies, it is a 2-part component that mixes resin with a catalyst to cause the curing reaction that makes the material hard.
A premium garage flooring option that has created quite a buzz in the industry is a polyaspartic floor coating. Like Polyuria and epoxies, polyasparatic coatings is a two-component, rapid curing, hybrid coating system designed as a decorative yet durable coating for commercial and industrial flooring. Formulated with aliphatic chemistry, polyasparatic coating is color stable allowing it to take UV exposure without color shifts seen with other coating systems including epoxy.
BENEFITS OF POLYASPARTIC COATINGS
The two biggest advantages of a polyaspartic or polyurea garage floor coatings are temperature and time. Typical polyurea and polyaspartic floor coatings are applied in just two coats; the first being both the primer and color coat and the second being the clear coat. Because of their fast cure rates, a complete flooring system can be installed in one day and returned to service the next. This means that you won’t have to do without your garage for 3-4 days like you would for a full epoxy system.
100% U.V. stability – they will never yellow.
Crystal clear finish that won’t blush from moisture in the concrete.
Similar high abrasion and scratch resistance to polyurethane.
High tolerance to heat, meaning hot tire pick up is a non-issue.
High film build-up that can be controlled by the applicator.
High gloss finish.
High solids content with little to no VOC’s in most applications.
High stain and chemical resistance. Including salts for winter climates.
Good flexibility for higher impact resistance.
Excellent wetting characteristics for strong bonding into concrete
Decreased chance of bubbles from outgrossing due to faster cure rate
