There has been a great deal of demand over the past couple of years because of the effectiveness of polyaspartic coatings.

Polyaspartic coatings are the best solution for transforming your floors, patios or countertops into beautiful, gleaming surfaces.

Polyaspartic coatings derive from aliphatic polyisocyanate reacting with polyaspartic ester, a diamine. The compound is known as an aliphatic polyurea, which is very different from traditional polyureas. It is also superior in so many ways. Polyaspartic garage floor applications result in low emissions and quick drying.
