Don't sell your coating project short by choosing a substandard epoxy coating or an epoxy covered by urethane. Rhino Polyaspartic outperforms them all.

Don’t be fooled by “systems” with fancy numbers, multiple flooring options and inferior products covered up by superior ones saving other floor installers money and costing you in the long run. Substandard epoxy simply cannot compare to Polyaspartic technology.

A Polyaspartic coating floor lasts much longer than traditional paints, sealers, urethanes and epoxies. The added traction and light reflectivity improves safety and provides world class first impressions along with chemical and petroleum protection. Years of research, superior formulations and time tested installation techniques guarantee your Polyaspartic concrete coating will stay bonded under the intense heat of hot vehicle tires and daily abuse. A non slip additive is applied to every coat of our proprietary four coat system.

Polyaspartic Coatings FAQs

(click on the title for the answers)

What Exactly are Polyaspartics?

Polyaspartics were invented in the 1990's by a German chemical company named “Bayer” (the same company that makes the aspirin). Technically, polyaspartics are a type of polymer called “polyurea aliphatics”. Polyureas are two-part systems, meaning that they require a resin to be mixed with a catalyst to create the curing reaction that hardens and cures the material. Polyurea is what makes Rhino Polyaspartic so highly durable. Although polyaspartics have been available for many years, their use as commercial metal and floor coatings have been relatively recent.

How is the Polyaspartic you install different than the epoxy we all see at the big box stores?

Much like buying a fake Rolex on the streets of New York, the difference is that it doesn’t last long and doesn’t look as good as the real thing. The polyaspartic we use is pure unadulterated If it’s a commercial application, we also use a 4th Polyaspartic top coat. With all things, it’s not just the product we use that makes it so good, it’s the process and tooling we use to do good work. If your just trying to make something look a little better before you sell it, or you don’t use it very often, an epoxy at a box store should hold out long enough. We have seen hot tires stick and rip of the flooring folks went to work the next day.

A major home improvement store offers a 2-coat "Premium Floor Coating" at $2.25per square foot, however, they include the thickness of the flakes as part of their overall finished thickness. They also have a square foot minimum of 500 sq ft. This means that their "Premium Package" is actually 8-12 mils and for a 2 car garage that’s $1125.00 and less than half the thickness of our floors and it is not turn key. This same Home Improvement Company charges extra for crack repair and non-skid additive and by the time you add those into the price your paying the same thing as you are with us except your getting twice the thickness, durability and product. The flakes included at the home improvement store are added to the top coat and are therefore left exposed, rather than encapsulated, so that the overall durability of your coating is then only as strong as the flakes themselves. Trust us, you don't want that.
