to epoxy flooring, polyurea
floor coating systems offer several
advantages and benefits that make them a superior choice
for garage floors. Potomac
Garage Solutions uses the Rocksolid
Floors Garage Floor Coating System from Citadel Floor Finishing
Systems because it is more durable, easier to apply and less
toxic than epoxy flooring. The top performance and beautiful
appearance of polyurea flooring brings long-lasting value
to a home.
Polyurea represents the latest advancement in garage
floor coating technology, already in use for more than 25 years
as a coating
for bridge decks, chemical tanks and other industrial structures.
The coating makes a tighter bond with the primer system than
epoxy, and remains more durable throughout everyday abuse
over the years.
Used in garages, polyurea flooring is four times stronger
than epoxy, with four times the abrasion resistance and 98%
more flexibility. Compared to epoxy, polyurea more strongly
resists common garage chemicals like salt, oil and gas. It
also is less inclined to ugly and dangerous cracking and
peeling. Over time, polyurea flooring better withstands the
wear and tear of high-traffic areas such as a garage.
While more durable than epoxy, polyurea also is easier to
apply, with fast dry-times that allow one-day installation,
compared to several days for epoxy. Rapid turnaround and
easy application means that less time is spent with the inconvenience
of a disrupted garage, and there are fewer opportunities
for accidents to damage the floor surface as it cures. Newly
applied polyurea coating can handle foot traffic in less
than six hours, and can accommodate a vehicle within 24 hours.

Unlike epoxy, which produces toxic fumes when applied, polyurea
flooring contains fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
and is virtually odor-free. The less toxic polyurea poses
fewer dangers to people, especially children, and pets in
the garage area. Being more environmentally friendly makes
polyurea a natural choice for use indoors compared to more
