High-Performance BulletProof Brand Polyaspartic Coating System 100% Solids

• Polyaspartic floor coatings are relatively new to the variety of concrete floor coatings available.

• If you are not familiar with polyaspartics, think of “epoxy on steroids,” however, they are made of entirely different materials.

• Polyaspartic coatings offer the same advantages of epoxies and polyurethanes.

• Polyaspartic floor coatings are more scratch-resistant & chemical-resistant than epoxy floor coatings which is why they tend to cost more.

• The temperature tolerance range for application is very forgiving, with installation possible in sub-zero to 140+ F.

• Polyaspartic floor coatings cure extremely quickly. In most cases, a floor is returned to service within a few minutes to a few hours of application, as compared with many hours or days of cure time for epoxy coatings.

• Polyaspartics have a very short pot life (working time) before it hardens; hence, once the installation process starts, it must be completed very quickly.

• UV-stable.

• Heat tolerant. Depending upon the manufacturer, polyaspartic floor coatings can withstand temperatures in excess of 300 degrees F.

• Excellent abrasion, stain, and chemical resistance which exceeds epoxies and urethanes.

• Polyaspartic coatings are available in clear or pigmented colors.

• Color chips may be added for decorative and textural enhancements.

• Slip-resistance can be enhanced with additives.

 

• Polyaspartic floor coatings can be difficult to apply, especially when the solids-percentage increases. BulletProof Brand Concrete Coatings manufactures 66%-solids, 85%-solids, 95%-solids and 100%-solids for various construction applications. The higher the solids number, the less time you will have to apply the material before it hardens. It is best to have multiple individuals available to mix small batches & apply these small batches to the substrate.
