PLASTICS FACILITY | DETROIT, MI | UCRETE DP – SS449 | CASE STUDY

“Surface Solutions, Inc. will be back at our long-time customer’s plastics facility for more Ucrete DP installations in the near future.”

-Amy D. Manghelli, President, Surface Solutions, Inc.

For this 1,500-square-foot industrial flooring project, Surface Solutions installers shot blast the bare concrete substrate, then key the edges and transitions to prevent any lip, which is considered a trip hazard. Ucrete DP is applied to the area with a gauge rake at ¼-inch. The floor is broadcast with 40 S Neutral Quartz to full rejection. Excess sand is swept and vacuumed, followed by the application of SS449 – Surface Solutions’ brand of UV-stable, fast cure polyaspartic topcoat. The entire project is completed in two days.

Get to Know SS449 Fast Cure Polyaspartic Coating

The most outstanding feature of SS449 is its quick tack-free time for foot traffic after installation.

Surface Solutions’ self-branded SS449 is a two-component 95% solids polyaspartic aliphatic polyaspartic sealer that can be used as both a base coat and a topcoat over paint-chip decorative broadcasts or colored sand broadcasts. SS449 has excellent chemical resistance, hardness, abrasion resistance, UV-stability and clear Gardner color that provide an infinite array of color schemes or patterns. This product is recommended for areas where a medium build broadcasted floor is desired and installation downtime is very limited. It can also be applied over a broadcasted or troweled system as a thin to medium build sealer.

What are polyaspartic coatings?

Polyaspartic coatings are a type of a polyurea coating called aliphatic polyurea. Polyaspartic coatings are often used in protective resinous concrete floor coating applications.

How are polyaspartic industrial floor coatings applied?

Polyaspartic coatings systems are high performance materials that should only be installed by a professional seamless resinous flooring systems contractor such as Surface Solutions, Inc. Polyaspartic coatings can be applied with a gauge rake, squeegee or seal-coat broom.

How long do polyaspartic coatings take to cure?

Fast cure is one of the primary benefits of SS449 polyaspartic coating, which is designed to provide next-day return to service for the customer.

Is SS449 as durable as traditional epoxy coatings?

Not only is SS449 as durable as traditional epoxy coatings, it also offers abrasion resistance that exceeds that of typical epoxy systems. Polyaspartic coatings also exhibit superior inter-coat adhesion with epoxy coatings.
