Main types of concrete floor coatings
There are four main types of concrete floor coatings. While they are all great and, naturally, exceptional solutions for concrete floors, they are not all ideal for all concrete floors. As we said, it always depends on the floor’s requirements.
- Epoxy coatings are particularly popular due to their hardness. Such coatings consist of polyamine hardeners and epoxy resins whose blend makes a very strong mix. Epoxy coatings are often applied on concrete floors in warehouses, garages, reception halls, and any place where impact resistance and great performance are necessary.
- Acrylic coatings are best for low-traffic areas since they are not as durable as epoxy and thus, not as protective. Acrylic floor coatings are water-based and don’t cost much and although they may be non-slippery and may hold well under water, they are not ideal for areas where durability is a must.
- Polyurethane coatings come closer to epoxy, in regard to durability, but they are still softer. Due to the coating’s flexibility, it is preferred for pedestrian areas. Human bodies do not get tired when walking or standing on polyurethane coatings. And so, such coatings are excellent for hospitals, malls, airports, and other foot traffic areas but not for areas where there’s moisture. Water and moisture may make the coating bubble up.
- Polyaspartic coatings are great for pedestrian areas, just like polyurethane coatings. The difference is that polyaspartic coatings only need one application because they act as the sub- and top-coating whereas polyurethane and epoxy coatings need two applications.
