Parking Garage Coatings
Every parking facility is different. Parking decks in multi-level garages, for example, have very special coating needs. Moisture intrusion can corrode the concrete slab from within, eventually contributing to weakened internal metal structures. Owners and operators want a cost-effective concrete deck coating system that can protect new concrete or restore older concrete surfaces. Concrete parking decks can suffer when they are exposed to:
- Fuels and oils
- Tire stains
- Freeze/ thaw
- Chlorides and carbonation
- Acid rain and other pollutants
- Snow, ice or hail
- Street salt
- Water intrusion
A good parking garage floor coating system should help prolong the life of the concrete structure as a whole. Florock strives to find flooring that offers high performance, outstanding durability and safety for every facility’s unique needs.
What We Use
Epoxy coatings are a great option if you are looking for tough and attractive flooring. They combine polymer resins and hardeners that result in a chemical bond with the concrete. Plus, there are many colors and decorative options to choose from.
The benefits of using an epoxy coating are:
- Provides great durability on a surface than paint and holds up in areas of impact
- Quick installation and easy maintenance
- Can be applied in various use cases in both residential and commercial
- Vibrant finishes and a lot more to chose from depending on the clients desire
- Easy to clean and keep clean
Polyurea is a type of elastomer that is derived from the reaction product of an isocyanate component and a synthetic resin blend component through step-growth polymerization. The isocyanate can be aromatic or aliphaticin nature. It can be monomer, polymer, or any variant reaction of isocyanates, quasi-prepolymer or a prepolymer. The prepolymer, or quasi-prepolymer, can be made of an amine-terminated polymer resin, or a hydroxyl-terminated polymer resin.
The resin blend may be made up of amine-terminated polymer resins, and/or amine-terminated chain extenders. The amine-terminated polymer resins do not have any intentional hydroxyl moieties. Any hydroxyls are the result of incomplete conversion to the amine-terminated polymer resins. The resin blend may also contain additives or non-primary components. These additives may contain hydroxyls, such as pre-dispersed pigments in a polyol carrier. Normally, the resin blend does not contain a catalyst(s). via Wikipedia
