This floor coating has excellent sound deadening properties, is very impact resistant which is why it's installed in factories, kitchens where heavy objects occasionally abuse the surface. Thermal resistance to extreme hot and cold temperature changes. Anti-microbial variants are available for food, pharmaceutical, and medical applications. Its high abrasion resistance makes it the coating of choice in facilities where steel wheels are used. Examples include bakery carts and factory floors. Its chemical, microbial, and water resistance is a big factor in its use in pharmaceutical, medical, and food preparation facilities. Not only is it resistant to water spilling on it, it is resistant to vapor moisture transmission from below the slab. Other coatings necessitate a vapor barrier coating application to protect from this. This material is often installed with a cove going up the wall some. It has an inherent anti-slip resistance that is maintained through out its lifespan even without a traction additive or after the traction additive wears away. Due to its extremely industrial nature we can offer warranties anywhere from five to twenty years depending on the thickness selected.
Application wise, it doesn't emit any noxious odors during its curing process. It doesn't need a primer coating to achieve proper adhesion to concrete. It can be used as a one part application system meaning we only have to apply one thick coat and we're done. This saves you labor costs having us to come back and prepare and re-apply layer after layer of many multi-coat systems. Having a one coat system also means that you have less down time for your space. Only a short waiting period to apply it after concrete is first poured.
Disadvantage wise, it must be applied in temperatures below 90 degrees Fahrenheit. It also is less decorative or aesthetically pleasing as other coating systems. Then there's the issue of price. It can be twice as expensive as some of our other options.
