Blaine, Minn. (PRWEB) November 12, 2007
Citadel Floor Finishing Systems (CFFS) recently refined its residential garage floor coating system using polyaspartic polyurea technology. The new system requires just three hours of application and dries for foot traffic in only two hours, an improvement the company believes puts the process in a league of its own.
The new flooring system utilizes a number of different components, namely polyaspartic polyurea -- a material floor installers can use in essentially any temperature that dries harder and stronger than most typical Epoxies and Urethanes, said Patrick Ilfrey, CFFS (http://www.citadelfloors.com ) CEO and owner.
“This floor coating dries within two hours, allowing for automobile traffic in only 24 hours, which is unheard of in this industry,” said Ilfrey. He also mentioned that CFFS is offering two-day training courses for potential installers at the company’s headquarters in Blaine, Minn.
CFFS is ideal for a variety of jobs, and the base of the product is an industrial-grade coating that has been used for years to protect bridge decks, chemical tanks and many other structures because of its superior qualities, Ilfrey said.
“CFFS has four times the abrasion resistance, twice the adhesion, and 95 percent more flexibility than Epoxy. These characteristics are combined with its ability to cure rapidly and be completed in one day at any temperature,” Ilfrey said.
CFFS also has a very high UV resistance, "which means it does not yellow or fade over time compared to traditional epoxies and urethanes,” Ilfrey said. “Its ability to resist oil stains and deterioration of salts, gasoline and other contaminates is unmatched. The coating is also very impact and abrasion resistant. CFFS is ideal for garage floors, automotive sales and service areas, warehouses, medical treatment and pharmaceutical floors, retail areas, public facilities such as restrooms, laboratories, and animal kennels to name a few.”
Ilfrey said almost any structurally sound concrete floor, whether new or old, can be coated -- but there are some exceptions. New floors should be in place at least 28 days before CFFS is applied in order to ensure adequate curing.
“Thanks to recent advances in coatings and application techniques, our concrete floor finishing system is now able to provide beautiful coatings that can be applied year-round to almost any concrete floor in just one day,” Ilfrey said. “We offer a full line of polyurea coatings and crack- and joint-fill products. Compared to Epoxies and Urethanes, CFFS has far superior durability and performance characteristics.”
