Can You Install a Polyaspartic Garage Floor Coating in Winter?
The short answer to the question in the topic is, yes, you can install a polyaspartic flooring in the winter. You can install it in the dead of winter or the heat of mid-summer. The person installing the flooring may make some minor adjustments to the ratios of chemicals, and there may be a slight difference in drying time depending on the ambient temperature.
A polyaspartic coating is a special combination of chemicals that is similar to polyurethane. Polyaspartic coatings have several distinct advantages: they dry very quickly, sometimes in an hour depending on the particular recipe, they are very impact resistant and have been tested in some brutal conditions like outdoors on bridges, and they are resistant to wear from temperature changes.
Another important advantage is that polyaspartic coatings give off very little volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). So, they don’t stink when they are applied, and you don’t have to worry about them emitting anything bad afterwards.
Polyaspartic Flooring Advantages:
- A UV-stable coat that prevents the floor from yellowing and fading with time
- Outstanding abrasion resistance and impact
- Powerfully resistant to automotive kinds of stuff and household chemicals
- 100% guaranteed not to peel, flake, or blister
- Ability to give your garage floor a number of colours
- When mixed with a gritty compound in the last layer, it will offer great traction
The salt and sand that your vehicle may bring into the garage during winter is really damaging to a concrete floor. A polyaspartic flooring would prevent that damage. There is no reason why you can’t have a polyaspartic floor in your garage for Christmas!
