What is a concrete coating?
A concrete coating is a covering that can be applied to a concrete surface, usually to enhance its aesthetics, protect the concrete, and reduce the maintenance and repair required to preserve the concrete surfaces. It is typically a liquid or semi-liquid that can be applied to concrete floors.
Why use concrete coatings?
Concrete coatings can be used for a number of reasons. Some coatings can be used to change the appearance of the concrete, such as concrete paints that can be used for decorative concrete. Others are designed as a floor coating that protects the concrete. People often mistakingly think that concrete is indestructible, but left untreated and without a coating, it is a porous material that wears down and sometimes will likely eventually need concrete resurfacing in the future. For this reason, coatings are often used if the concrete is going to experience high traffic, whether by foot or vehicle. For example, if the ground needs to be petrol resistant in a garage or outdoor area there are special floor coatings to do this. Protecting your concrete surface with a coating will also reduce the regularity of maintenance that is required and extend the concrete's life.
Types of concrete coatings
There is a wide range of concrete coatings products on the market. Some of the most popular products include acrylic coatings that produce a thin film across the surface that protects the concrete and comes in both oil and water-based options. There are also polyurethane concrete coatings
, also available in oil and water-based solutions, that are usually thicker and more durable than average and ordinary coatings. Epoxy coatings are often the product of choice for scratch-resistance and colorful appearance, though they have a much longer drying time to other coatings.
Looking for concrete paint?
Wanting to change the look of your concrete or create some decorative concrete with concrete paint? If you are looking for concrete paint then what you are actually looking for is made up of epoxy coatings that are known for their colorful appearance or can have flecks of quartz or metallic flakes
through them. If you are looking for outdoor concrete paint, however, the decorative concrete solution may end up being a polyurethane coating. Polyurethane is used for concrete paint outdoor applications as it is stronger than epoxy in high UV exposure environments where an epoxy paint solution will not work. If you have your heart set on a specific look or colour and the construction has not started, however, it might even be a better option to consider a concrete dye to get the look you are going for. These construction solutions make the floor coatings process much easier and will give you a better range of coating options in the end.
