Polyurea floor coatings already offer many benefits over epoxy floor paints
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 20, 2009
Citadel Floor Finishing Systems has expanded its floor coatings family with the launch of Polyurea 350, a new floor coating system designed with efficiency and ease-of-use in mind. Polyurea 350's unique composition lets contractors enjoy lower material costs and faster installation times, as well as the ability to offer customers year-round installations. The extended pot life, compared to traditional polyurea systems, and their patent-pending adjustable cure rate technology ensure greater consistency and fewer flaws with each application.
"Polyurea floor coatings already offer many benefits over epoxy floor paints," says Patrick Ilfrey, president of Citadel Floor Finishing Systems. "But Polyurea 350 improves on them even more. One of the biggest differences is the fact that installers must wait 20 minutes before broadcasting aggregate into the material. Other systems require it be done immediately, which can lead to inconsistencies because product can only be applied in smaller areas at a time. This system lets the material pre-cure for increased stability, and allows the installer to wet-out large surface areas before broadcasting."
Polyurea 350 offers several benefits, both to contractors and their customers, over epoxy floor paints and traditional polyurea floor coatings. Some of its more notable benefits include:
- Extended pot life (Installers have more time to put down product and ensure consistency.)
- Fast cure times (Even with multiple product layers, return-to-service time is less than 24 hours.)
- Year-round installations (Product can be installed in temperatures from 20 below to 120 degrees.)
- Flexibility and waterproofing properties (100 percent more flexible than epoxy)
- Strength (It's 4X stronger than epoxy epoxy floor paints.)
- Adjustable cure times (The patent-pending adjustable cure rate technology offers even greater application flexibility when rapid cure times aren't ideal.)
Polyurea 350 can be used as more than a garage floor coating. The product can also be applied as a primer coat for application on other concrete surfaces, steel, wood, fiberglass, and more. It can be used on floors anywhere from a home basement to an aircraft hanger or industrial shop floor.
In addition to its direct product benefits and diverse usage potential, Citadel also offers an industry-leading guarantee policy on Polyurea 350--up to a 20-year warranty against delamination, cracking and peeling when the system is installed by a Citadel Certified Installer, giving both contractors and customers greater peace of mind.
