Why choose Polyurea coatings over Epoxy coatings?

 

PROPERTIESPOLYUREAEPOXY
Durability4X stronger than epoxy. Long-lasting, even in changing environments.Can last awhile if applied properly and in a climate controlled environment.
Outdoor useCan be used outdoors and can withstand challenging environments.Cannot be used outdoors because it can't withstand extreme temperature changes.
Cure timeOne day6 - 8 days
Color integrityWill not fade. 100% UV stable.Not UV resistant. Color will fade and yellow with exposure to the sun.
Flexibility10X more flexible than epoxy. Expands and contracts with the concrete.Cures to a very hard surface. Can't withstand the expanding and contracting concrete. Becomes brittle and peels, chips and flakes.
  • Epoxy never fully cures. Perpetually hardens and the coating becomes brittle.
  • Epoxy peels, chips and flakes after only a couple years.
  • Polyurea coatings cure quickly.
  • Polyurea expands and contracts with the concrete, preventing peeling, chipping and flaking.
