Garage Floors – Polyurea Polyaspartic Coatings
In the construction industry, many years may pass without any new breakthroughs in materials that are better than the previous standard products. Sometimes, improvements are actually backward steps as the new products are disproved after they have seen widespread application. Some people wonder if polyurea polyaspartic concrete coatings are the real deal.

Proponents of this concrete epoxy claim it can be applied at any temperature, will bond to any concrete surface, and will bridge gaps in the concrete. If also withstands high heat and doesn’t stain or fade in UV light. And if that’s not enough, it also cures to full strength in thirty minutes.
