How Long Does a Polyaspartic Coating Last?
A polyaspartic coating for a garage floor is a relatively new trend. People like it because it has some distinct advantages over epoxy. If you are wondering how long a polyaspartic floor coating lasts, that will depend on how much wear and tear it receives and how well it is applied. However, a good rule of thumb is 10-20 years depending on the traffic on it and installation.
A working garage floor is obviously going to have a somewhat shorter life than the floor that receives very little traffic. But polyaspartic coatings are closely related to urethane, and they last longer than epoxy coatings. Polyaspartic coatings are used specifically for their durability.
Here are some of the advantages of a polyaspartic flooring:
- Long life
- Very little or no off-gassing
- Easy to clean
- Very fast drying
- Brilliant shiny result
The biggest reason why some people have problems with a polyaspartic flooring is because it is not applied properly. This is one flooring that should be applied by experienced professionals to get a professional and long-lasting finish. Polyaspartic coatings are not DIY jobs. Inexperienced installers will have a problem with the coating drying before the application is even finished.
Also, a polyaspartic flooring can be slippery, so often some different abrasive materials are added to it before application to increase friction.
