Polyaspartic is short for polyaspartic aliphatic polyurea. This is a two-part product which is solvent driven and offers some clear benefits over an epoxy coating. Primarily, it better resists hot-tire pickup, is 3x harder, has superior gloss retention, resists more chemicals, has higher abrasion resistance, increased adhesion to concrete and has a quick return-to-service. There are a few different systems that we offer depending on the desired results and application for the end-user.
The preparation of the floor includes diamond grinding or shot-blasting, crack repair, control joint filling (upon request), spalling repairs, and coating removal (if necessary).
Our standard three-coat SHP Polyaspartic system offers a LifetimeÂ Warranty for residential floors. This includes the color flake or chip system. Â If you’re looking for the ultimate in performance, check our the quartz aggregate four-coat system that also comes with a LifetimeÂ warranty.
SHP Polyaspartic coatings are also ideal for use in commercial and walking surfaces, retail stores, courtyards, restrooms, malls, laboratories, machine shops, and many other spaces.
