We field numerous questions about how SPARTACOTE® polyaspartic matches up to more general epoxy coatings, what the differences are, how long you wait between coatings, etc. We created the coatings comparison table in the PDF below to list the differences between polyaspartic and epoxy concrete coatings using various ASTM test methods as key metrics. These tests include: abrasion resistance, falling sand abrasion, adhesion pull-off, tensile strength, impact, and flexibility. Additionally, the coatings comparison table lists Color-Gloss Retention from the SSPC Paint Specification as well as how long a coatings contractor must wait between coats and walk-on foot traffic.
Benefits of SPARTACOTE® polyaspartic concrete coatings over epoxy coatings include:
-3x the abrasion resistance
-3x the wear resistance
-2x the adhesion to steel
-50% greater flexibility and chip reduction
-2x the color and gloss retention
-1 day return to service
