Polyurea Garage Kit and Do I Really Need the Primer?

Do I really need the primer? This is a great question to ask when investing in a Polyurea Garage Kit like our Nohr-S Polyurea Kit for your garage, home shop or mechanic service center.

This question harkens back to other important questions...

  1. Do I really need rebar in my concrete slab?
  2. Do I really need a vapor-barrier under my concrete slab?
  3. Do I really need a treated sill-plate?
  4. Do I really need to saw cut-joints into my concrete slab?
I think you see where this is going.  If not here is the red-meat you need to justify a little more for your project...

  • FACT: Primer will even out your color-coat
  • FACT: Primer will bite deeper into your slab
  • FACT: Primer helps to eliminate bubbles
  • FACT: Primer adds mils of thickness to your floor
  • FACT: Primer customers call in far less for help then non-primer customers
  • FACT: You will hear "others" frown on it, that's all they got... a "no-primer" gamble

We don't want your extra $$, we want happy customers that move on the next project knowing that they did it right!!

Cold Weather Tips Concrete Floor Coating Epoxy & Polyurea

Wanted to remind folks that when cold weather starts to grip the USA it's important to remember these few tips...

High & 100% Solids Epoxies should not be used below 50 deg f

Solvent based primers can go to 40 deg f in most cases, wb formulas typically are better 50 deg f and up

Heated garages can be coated, however exterior walls and openings will still be cold in extreme weather, so check temps before going forward

Heaters can be used but stay away from diesel/kerosene heaters and turn heaters off during the actual coating process, turn back on once curing has started, pre-heat several days before coating to slowly raise slab and wall temps. You still need to ventilate for (solvent based products)clear-coats, so remember to keep a door/window partially open for your safety.

Most Polyureas and Urethane products (like our Nohr-S Polyurea and HellFire Coating) can be used to 33 deg f . They will cure but will be slower than normal

Epoxy repair products will be stunted and typically have a 50 deg f limit unless designed for cold-weather. Polyurea repair products (like our XtremeSet 100) can be used to -20 deg f. 

If you decide to push a project off until warmer weather returns remember to store your coatings in a heated (above freezing) area and avoid big temp swings, basements are typically ideal.
