Concrete Floor Coatings - What Is The Best?

July 27, 2015
 

Concrete floor coatings are very important when it comes to buildings and structures. The main purpose of such coatings is to protect the slab from contamination or deterioration. Offering added benefits like aesthetics, chemical resistance, non-skid, physical performance, ease of maintenance, and other such features is also desired. Floors are the most abused parts of any building. So, it is highly essential to make sure to protect it so that it lasts longer. Chemical attack, abrasion, thermal shock impact, and all such abuses affect the floors more than any other part. Concrete floors are generally known to be porous. This makes it have a higher tendency to create dust from continuous wear and abuse. As such, it is very important to protect the concrete floors by using any kind of protective material.

Epoxy coatings are known to be quite effective for concrete floors. This thermosetting polymer is available in three different formulations, which are solvent based, water based, and 100% solids. These types of concrete floor coatings are beautiful, flexible, and really durable. It seals concrete and steel and prolongs the life of the floor. Versatility is a very important advantage of using epoxy coatings. It can be used anywhere, in your home, office, workshop, and even in industries and factories. All these advantages make epoxy coatings a popular choice.

Polyurethane is also a thermosetting polymer which is known as a high performance coating. Manufacturers are of the opinion that polyurethane coating has a higher wear resistance than epoxy coating. It also handles impacts better and is more resistant to abrasion and chemicals. Polyurethane is also UV stable, which makes sure it does not yellow like epoxy coatings. Even though the coating is not as hard as epoxy, it is scratch resistant and has high temperature tolerance.

As compared to epoxy coatings, polyurethane coatings do not bond well enough to the concrete and the dry film thickness does not work to fill in the small cracks in the surface as a self levelling agent.
Hybrid coating technologies combine the advantages of both epoxy and polyurethane coatings. It is two times more durable and also helps you save 45% of the costs over the traditional polyurethane coatings. Green polyurethane by Hybrid Coating Technologies is the first ever modified hybrid polyurethane which is used in paint and coatings. It is hundred times less toxic and has properties much superior than the others. This makes it applicable for all requirements without any issues and troubles. The low toxicity makes it fit for medical and food industries as well. In all matters, it is the most optimal solution to all your flooring requirements.
