What Are High Performance Floor Coatings?

What Are High Performance Floor Coatings | Duraamen Engineered Products Inc

High-performance floor coatings have evolved tremendously since the material was first developed over 75 years ago. From early discoveries of urethanes and aromatic isocyanates that helped to launch coating technologies to the two-component waterborne polyurethane coatings of today that are long-lasting and stain-resistant, optimized high-performance floor coatings have much to offer the flooring industry.

The proven performance, resilience, flexibility, and ease of use of polyurethane-based coatings have transformed the flooring industry. Once widely considered a durable topcoat, today’s high-performance floor coatings are now the top choice for use on industrial and concrete floors. And as more companies employ sustainable building practices, polyurethane-based coatings are particularly beneficial when companies use existing concrete flooring as a decorative feature of the structure.

So rather than repair or replace an industrial or concrete floor, resourceful manufacturers like Duraamen will choose high-performance floor coatings to breathe new life and a new look into a facility or space. These coatings are good options for concrete floors in storage garages, heavy-duty kitchens, chemical and production plants, retail stores, hospitals, restaurants, business complexes, hotels, and more.

Additionally, high-performance floor coatings are super durable—stain, water, and abrasion resistant, and can be decorative. Stamped concrete, diamond polishing, and decorative stains and stencils are among the aesthetic ways one can use high performance coatings to transform the look of a new or renovated concrete floor. Installers can apply these coatings at higher wet firm thickness—rather than multiple coats—which can reduce the overall cost of a project.

The long-term success of any high performance coating will largely depend on the application process. Be sure to consult a Duraamen representative, who not only can advise about the best coating to use but also has the expertise to do a quality job.
