What is Polyaspartic Floor Coating?

With a wide range of customization options and professional installation services, we ensure that your garage flooring reflects your unique style while providing long-lasting protection. Contact our team for more information.

Polyaspartic Epoxy Coating is a hybrid substance that is similar to polyurethane, which will be discussed more in another article. It was initially developed in the 1990s as a corrosion-resistant coating for steel in bridges. This epoxy substitute is also known as an aliphatic polyurea sealer, and it is a mixture of ester and other components.

Manufacturers can adjust the quantity of ester in polyaspartic to achieve varied properties, such as quick drying timeframes and low gas emissions after application. Because of these advancements, it is more adaptable than conventional epoxy.

Because we mix and produce the materials we install at Tru-Grit Epoxy Flooring, we are highly experienced with how to deal with epoxy to get the desired outcome. Our finish is clear and glossy. It gives the impression of a damp concrete floor when used alone. If you want a more vibrant appearance, you can add color to the mixture. We also sprinkle decorative chips throughout the surface of a still-wet coating to provide a bit additional color and non-slip texture; we call this technique our Tru-Flake Garage Flooring System.

We can help you choose the perfect flooring solution for your space, whether you're looking for a slip-resistant finish for your garage, a durable surface for your commercial space, or a decorative finish for your home.  Contact our team for more information.

How Do You Apply Polyaspartic Epoxy Coating?

Because polyaspartic dries fast, applying it is a quick process. The substance has the consistency and appearance of water - it is transparent (when no color additives are used), virtually unscented, and quite fluid.

This is how you generally complete a polyaspartic floor:

  1. Prepare the surface! Grind the surface until the concrete surface profile is at a reasonable texture.

  2. Vacuum surface to ensure a clean environment for the epoxy process to take place

  3. Pour ribbons of polyaspartic epoxy across the garage floor and evenly spread it with a squeegee or roller.

  4. Let the polyaspartic epoxy sit for an hour or less depending on the manufacturer's requirements.

  5. Lay out the second layer of polyaspartic epoxy. Before it dries, disperse a non-skid traction material upon the floor. Having a partner to help with this part of the process is important as the epoxy dries fast.

  6. Let the second layer dry for an hour less depending on the manufacturer.

  7. Optional: Apply top coat with the same process as the other coats and avoid driving or placing the car in the garage for 24 hours.

Versatile application

It may be used in a range of weather and temperature circumstances, eliminating the need to wait for the perfect moment.


Polyaspartic dries hard but retains some elasticity. This aids in the maintenance of a stain- and scratch-resistant finish.


Just like epoxy, this coating offers a series of possibilities for customizing the aesthetics. Color and chip additions provide a distinct appearance.

Quick drying time

No more inconvenient waiting periods! Polyaspartic cures in 30 minutes to an hour, allowing you to install your new flooring and go about your business.

Air quality

You'll be able to breathe easier thanks to minimal VOCs and almost no odor from off-gassing.


Colorfastness means that the color will not fade or yellow even after prolonged exposure to UV radiation. That means your garage will look fantastic for a longer period of time.

What are the Negative Aspects of Polyaspartic Garage Flooring?

  • Expensive: The advantages of polyaspartic coating are not cheap. If you have a budget, keep this expense in mind as you begin your planning.

  • Weakness to battery acid: Mechanics, beware of the battery acid weakness. While polyaspartic is more durable than epoxy in general, it does not withstand battery acid as well. If you anticipate a lot of this, this may not be the right floor coating for you.

  • Tricky application: DIY application is tough since you must properly distribute the coating using a squeegee or roller. Professional installation is advised.

  • Short pot life: The coating may dry on the floor or in the bucket before the application is finished. This can trap bubbles and other surface defects and waste a lot of material.

  • Possible delamination: If the concrete in your garage absorbs moisture, the polyaspartic will likely lose its connection and peel off from the floor.
