What makes polyaspartic floors so unique? They are the next generation in flooring products. So imagine getting the best features of epoxy and the best features of polyurethane and combining them in one; that is what polyesters are.
The most significant benefit of polyesters is curing very quickly. So they are touch-free within two to three hours. So imagine applying a coat on a floor; you can re-coat that floor within two or three hours. That's how fast they cure so you can have the base ready for operations within 12 hours. You can apply your primer two hours later. These products have a concise life, so they're not for amateurs. They're for very well-qualified and organized teams. If a floor cannot be completed in one day, this floor will be full of oils, dirt, and grime. It cannot be done in one day because you have to grind, prime, and do all sorts of things. If the floor is in good condition already and the customer wants a recoating or a simple coat, you can do it one day, and the next day the customer can return to work.
Imagine what that means for the owner of a facility. It means less downtime. You'll have fewer labor costs because you don't have to apply multiple coats. You use one coat, and you're gone; another benefit for the contractor is that you quickly move on to the next job. So you will only spend a portion of the week fixing up a floor if it can be done in one or two days. Because of the fast curing, you can apply your primer a few hours later. You can use your first coat, and by the evening, apply your final coat, and you're out of there. So that's a great advantage, and because it's a fast-curing product, there's another massive advantage: there is a minimal risk of bubbling.
Bubbling is one of the problems with epoxy, especially if you apply a thicker coat. You use epoxy, and then after 20 minutes, you start getting bubbles. Then someone must return with a spiked roller and ensure the bubbles burst. The beauty of polyaspartics is the curing is so fast the chances of a gas being released are very small. So the fast curing disables bubbles which is a great advantage. But I want to emphasize not to underestimate the importance of an excellent substrate. If you try applying polyester on loose concrete, you'll still get bubbles because it's a torque. It's terrible concrete, but you can eliminate the risk of getting bubbles if you have a good floor underneath.
Another advantage of polyesters is that they have self-priming properties. They bond very well with concrete. Many people argue you can apply a polyaspartic without using a primer. Now I'm not going so far as to claim that because there are many reasons why we apply primers. If you're dealing with an excellent floor and substrate, you can use one coat of polyester and be done. Each project is different, and each floor substrate is different. But keep it in mind polyesters do have a self-priming property.
The next significant advantage of polyesters is that they are tough and scratch resistant. Epoxy is tough, too. But because it's glossy and stiff, it can be prone to scratches. Polyasbotics are rigid but slightly elastic, making them more scratch resistance. They are not as glossy as epoxy, so if they do scratch, it's not as visible. They are more rigid than polyurethane. Because polyurethane is also scratch resistant, but they are tough. Polyesters are more rigorous than polyurethane.
Polyasbotics are excellent clear coats. Imagine wherever you need to apply clear coats like metallic floors or some flake floor or using a clear polyester on a sand floor.
My next subject is uv resistance. You can have polyester coatings with UV resistance. It's not a clear coat, but a color coat. But you can apply it both indoors and outdoors. So a common problem we have is people apply a coat, and it goes up to their garage, and then the part outside the garage door goes yellow, and the inside is a different color by using the polyester coat. There will not be a big difference in the shade from inside and outside because polyesters do not yellow, they do not chalk, and they do not have weathering problems. So another great advantage of polyesters is that you can use them indoors and outdoors interchangeably.
The next advantage is that they can be applied in low working temperatures. So not only are they resistant to low temperatures like freezing chambers, but you can actually apply them in a low-temperature working chamber like in this freezing chamber. So the temperature can be one or two degrees outside, just above freezing. They will cure slower, but they will still fix. You can't do that with epoxy.
