Our chip system offers stylish, durable floor options in a variety of patterns and colors.
No longer are the days of sacrificing beauty for the sake of function/strength! Polytek's chip system provides a stylish yet gentle texture while simultaneously delivering a lasting protection for many years to come.
In order to protect and enhance your next concrete project, Polytek is proud to install our resilient and aesthetically appealing polyurea/polyaspartic vinyl chip system.
Do we only coat garages? Although Polytek's chip system was originally designed for garage floors, our systems are perfect for so much more then that.
TheY are perfect for any household, commercial or industrial applications:
And so much more....
When picking our your floor coating, here are a few things you will want to consider:
Concrete expansion and contraction
Durability against physical impact
Chemical resistance (household and commercial)
Polytek's polyurea provides you all of the necessary characteristics or attributes needed to withstand our climate, after all, Redding is one of the top sunniest cities in America! Those attributes are:
Polyureas are extremely pliable and flexible, in fact, they are 98% more flexible then standard epoxy floor coatings. Flexibility is essential during the winter/summer transition. During this time, the concrete is shifting causing most floors coatings to fracture or crack. This is also the case with ground settling after new construction. In order to give you your best defense against this, polyureas elongation properties provide extreme flexibility (see tech data sheet ASTM D412 129%). Polyureas are also fully cured in 24 hours! This does not allow the product to get harder or softer over time and with varying temperatures. Most epoxy/hybrid floor coatings cure up to 80% in 7 days and over the course of time, they cure the additional 20% making them more and more brittle and harder causing epoxies to have an extremely high rate of fracturing and cracking ultimately resulting in delimitation.
Polyureas are 4 x more abrasion resistant then epoxy/hybrid floor coatings secondary to their inherent mar resistance, dense cross-linking, elongation and extreme flexibility properties. Polyureas can withstand a tremendous amount of abuse because they are malleable and can take the physical impact and disperse it similarly to the qualities of rubber on a car tire.
Polyurea are much more chemically resistant to a wide range of chemicals than epoxy surface coatings. This is due to their densely cross-linked chemistry.
From oil, gas, grease, salt to sky drop and hydroxides, Polyureas withstand chemicals that you may use in your garage or home.
Polyureas have 2x the adhesion over typical/hybrid floor coatings. Polyureas are often associated with spray on pickup truck liners. Polyureas are made from the same material only reformulated for concrete. This same chemistry is utilized in our floor coatings product but slowed down to an hour cure time. This gives the time to penetrate into the concrete deeply and bond molecularly into the concrete (giving it a rooting effect).
Our chip and polyuria/polyaspartics topcoat are 100 UV Stable. UV stability is vital if you want your floor to look great and last.
