Nohr-S Polyurea VS. Epoxy Garage Floor Coating

WOW!! We receive this question 2-3 times per day.  Why should I use Legacy Industrial's Nohr-S Polyurea VS Epoxy?  Let's start with the basics!

Nohr-S Polyurea is a high performing SINGLE PART (no mixing) concrete floor coating.  It is derived from a similar coating used to coat MARINE STRUCTURES used in Ocean Service!! It's important to mention Ocean Service as coatings used for Ocean duty serve in an intolerable environment.  Any coating being used in the World's Oceans needs to be really tough!  Nohr-S Polyurea is from the URETHANE family of products.  Urethanes share the highest level of wear and chemical resistance in the coating world.  Other urethanes include: Polyaspartics and Polyurethanes.

Epoxy is a VAGUE TERM!!  Epoxy on the LOW END could be the materials sold by Big-Box Stores.  These products are not really epoxy.  They are highly fortified pigmented acrylics in many cases.  Pigmented Acrylics won't be affected by UV but are not tolerant to abuse and will not hold up to vehicle traffic, very well,  in many cases.  Just because an epoxy is a 2 part, does not mean it's heavy-duty!!

On the high end, Epoxy can mean 100% solids like Legacy's SD Epoxy.  This and similar products are very high build, high gloss heavy-duty coatings.  They are very useful when trying to achieve a smooth/luxurious or heavy-duty floor.  Legacy's SD Epoxy when coupled with a urethane (Polyaspartic, Polyurea, Polyurethane) topcoat makes a very formidable system but still vulnerable to UV light produced by an open garage door facing East or West and also 2 part.

Here is the Secret-Sauce, the answer you have been waiting for!!!!!!!

ANSWER: Most people buy Nohr-S Polyurea because it is EASY!! There you go.  In addition to being easy to install it is very chem and wear resistant and of course completely UV Stable.

Hot Tire Lift, Bubbling, Sticky Floor and other reasons why your garage coating failed!!

Wow!! It feels good to be slapping this keyboard and talking directly to our customers and guests about garage floor coatings!!

When you have passion for your work and the desire to help people solve issues you aren't working people you are ENJOYING LIFE!!

Ok, quick summary... Going to give you (3) Epoxy, Urethane or Polyaspartic Floor Coating Issues and the reasons why they happen!!  Also.... remember.... Nohr-S Polyurea by Legacy Industrial limits some of these issues so go take a look!
Here we go...

  1. Hot Tire Lift (translation: POOR SURFACE PREPARATION)
    1. Concrete was not made porous enough to allow the coating to bond to the slab
      1. May have to look in the mirror, the guy you see failed you
    2. Hot Tires don't lift coatings, they encourage poorly adhered coatings to leave
    3. The only hot tires that actually are hot enough to hurt coatings are Fire-Truck Tires
      1. We use special systems for these type floors, but still use epoxy
    4. Weak concrete can also allow the tire to take the coating, this is irreversible
      1. Call your mason if this happens, it's his fault, not the coating installer
      2. Place mats under your tires, there may not be another solution
  2. Bubbling Coatings
    1. Too Much Air
      1. Don't mix coatings like cake-batter, slow and steady
    2. Too Hot 
      1. Climbing temps can release moisture from the slab
      2. Descending temps are better
    3. Too Sunny
      1. Direct sunlight beating on a curing coating causes an early-skin
      2. The early-skin traps gasses from leaving during cure
    4. Moisture
      1. Resinous coatings and moisture are not friends 
        1. WB coatings are the exception
        2. Test for moisture
        3. Hedge your bets and choose: AquaDike MVB as your primer
    5. Excessive Air Movement
      1. Fast moving air on the surface can cause an early-skin, see 3.2
  3. Sticky Floor
    1. Remember the guy in the mirror?

  • He did not mix long enough (3 mins is universal time)

    1. He did not mix with a proper wand and low-speed drill
    2. He did not scrape the bucket sides while mixing
    3. He altered the A:B ratio, BAD!!! 
    4. He coated on too cold of a day
    5. He might be scraping if not properly cured in a few days
    6. He is handsome but don't let him near our coatings, please!!
