What are the differences between Epoxy and Polyaspartic Floor Coatings?

Epoxy coatings: Tend to offer only two layers of protection over a surface. These perform well in heavy industry settings because they offer increased chemical resistance and good substrate protection, and are less permeable with greater hardness. Epoxy coatings also can tolerate exposure to many industrial chemicals. For instance, surfaces protected by epoxy coatings stand up well against sulfuric acid, which is used in a wide variety of industrial processes. However, certain organic acids present in food production, such as nitric acid, can harm epoxy coatings.

Polyaspartic Floor Coatings by Bluegrass Concrete Coatings

Labor and Application of Polyaspartic Floor Coatings:

Polyaspartic technology eliminates a step in the coating process compared to epoxy and urethane combinations, saving labor and material costs and shortening project timelines. The esters can be manipulated to control drying time and extends the pot life (the time in a bucket it can be used before hardening too much), allowing assets to be put back to use more quickly. Polyaspartic coatings also can be formulated for application and curing at temperatures well below freezing.

Durability:

While relatively new on the industrial coatings scene this hybrid coating, similar to polyurethane, has become a much better choice when it comes to garage floors, businesses, and coating the interior/exteriors of all types of structures which is why Bluegrass Concrete Coatings uses this process. Polyaspartic Coatings are used to protect structures such as exterior concrete, barges, or tanks from harsh weather conditions because of their versatility and offer better impact resistance being 4x more durable than epoxy.

Flexibility:

Innovations in technology have made these coatings a more versatile option compared to epoxy and urethane coating systems. Polyaspartic formulations now have low adhesion values, and applying polyaspartic floor coating in a single coat accomplishes what traditional epoxy and urethane systems need two coats to do. These polyurethanes can be softer, offer better color and gloss retention, and are more flexible. Traditional epoxy coatings for garage floors can often take up to a month to fully cure, as opposed to a few hours for polyaspartic floor coatings, this can often be the deciding factor for application in a busy family home or business. Try our One Day Coating Service and know you'll still have time to play with the toys in the garage you've been waiting all summer to use, while still being able to park them back in the garage at the end of the day.

 

Why Should You Use Bluegrass Concrete Coatings?:

Polyaspartic Floor Coatings are not generally considered a do-it-yourself installation and require a minimum of two people. Depending on the formulation, the average pot life of polyaspartic is only 20 to 30 minutes. The speed and accuracy required is daunting if you have never installed this type of coating before. Get the best results by choosing Bluegrass Concrete Coatings to install your polyaspartic floor coating and get that “One Day Floor” down before you have a chance to miss the open space!

 

Pros & Cons of Bluegrass Concrete Coatings Polyaspartic Floor Coatings vs Epoxy:

 
  Polyaspartic Winner Epoxy
Air Quality Low VOCS and virtually no off-gassing makes this product odorless Polyaspartic Off-gassing can decrease air quality so protective breathing gear is important
UV Stability Wont fade or yellow even after extended exposure Polyaspartic Some products could fade or yellow after extended exposure
Drying Time One hour or less per layer Polyaspartic Up to 16 hours of drying time per layer
Durability Hard flexible finish is more durable and wont chip scratch or scuff Polyaspartic Hard durable finish but rigid texture is still vulnerable to abrasions
Cost May be more expensive and may require extra installation costs Epoxy The more affordable solution
DIY Can be applied with a squeegee or roller brush but quick drying time requires accuracy Epoxy (Winner if Doing It Yourself) Can be applied with a roller brush and longer drying time allows more flexibility
Non-slip Smooth surface increases slipping risk so additives for non-slip are recommended Epoxy Not AS slippery as Polyaspartic but traction additives are still an option
