SPARTACOTE concrete coatings systems make for exceptional flooring solutions for demanding institutional environments, such as hospitals, schools, and university settings. These specialized resinous flooring systems offer fast return to service, customizable colors and textures, safe, high traction flooring, and a 3 year decorative system warranty.
