Looking to protect your garage floors from staining, chipping, pitting, and more? Epoxy garage floors are a great way to accomplish this. While epoxy garage floors have long been the go-to standard for many home and business owners, the industry has evolved significantly in recent years with a slew of new, innovative products hitting the market that provide superior protection and longevity compared to epoxy garage floors.
While epoxy is a long-lasting, durable floor protector, it does have it’s drawbacks. For instance, it is not UV stable, meaning it will fade or amber over time–and also see it’s quality degrade with excessive exposure. Further, epoxy is a rigid substance when it cures, meaning it is likely to crack if the floor shifts. Lastly, the rigid nature of epoxy makes it prone to scratching, leading to floors that can quickly become ugly with heavy use.
At White Rabbit, we have a wide range of floor coating products, including epoxy garage floors, but our recommended flooring solution is our industry-leading polyurea floor coating product.
What is Polyurea?
Polyurea is a product with a wide range of uses–but is most commonly used as a protective coating solutions. Originally developed in 1959, polyurea has been used in everything from protective coatings in industrial settings, to truck beds, to boat hulls, and even clothing!
Polyurea, while not developed specifically as a floor coating product, was discovered to have exceptional floor protection characteristics. With tensile strengths that can break concrete and up to 500% elasticity, polyurea floor coatings provide similar bonding characteristics as epoxy to concrete, with vastly superior abrasion and chemical resistance and elasticity.
Additionally, and as we touched on above, polyurea also has more tolerance to adverse weather conditions–particularly temperature. Epoxy, polyurethane, industrial paints, and other commonly used floor coating products, generally require temperatures to be 50 degrees or above. White Rabbit’s polyurea solution, however, can be applied in temperatures as low as zero degrees–making it an ideal solution for the harsh winter weather in the Chicago area.
Don’t let the weather or companies with inferior products dictate your installation schedule. White Rabbit’s polyurea product can accommodate your needs any time of the year.
