One of the most important factors to consider when choosing floor coating is its durability. You must keep in mind that it must withstand heavy foot traffic, impacts, regular wear and tear, and changing temperatures.

At Titan Garage Flooring Solutions, we want to ensure that our polyurea floor coating base can withstand and be applied regardless of the temperature. Not all floor coatings can be applied at any time because they’re sensitive to fluctuating temperatures. If you’re interested in our superior floor coating solutions, don’t hesitate to reach out to our experts.


How Does Temperature Affect Concrete Floor Coatings?

Many types of floor coatings are affected by temperature due to their chemical reactions when they come in contact with the concrete floor. This may affect its consistency, curating time, and final result.

Our Titan Garage Flooring Solutions coatings are the perfect solution. Although we might not be able to control temperatures and weather conditions, we can control our products and their integrity.

Polyurea Vs. Epoxy

Here are the two most used floor coatings and how they perform under different temperatures.

Epoxy Floor Coatings

One of the most popular types of floor coatings is epoxy. Most epoxy floors are temperature sensitive. In the heat, curating time and bonding are quick and effective. However, the product’s working life is reduced, making your installers rush. Heat and material can be a threat to installers due to a stronger scent (may cause dizziness and nausea).

In the cold, the product has a longer working life. However, the humidity makes it difficult to keep the product’s integrity (loses gloss and may crack). Leveling the products also becomes a challenge, as well as affecting the product’s viscosity.

During what temperature can epoxy floors be applied?

  • Anywhere from 10 to 30° C or 50 to 80 F

Polyurea Floor Coatings

At Titan Garage Floor Coatings, our polyurea floor coatings are much more durable than any other coatings in the market. They are not affected by either hot or cold temperatures. They were engineered to withstand fluctuating temperatures and made to be installed at any time.

Unlike epoxy coatings, polyurea’s working life remains consistent as well as bonding, curating time, leveling, and viscosity. This product is flexible in both time and consistency. You don’t have to worry about putting off your new coat until temperatures are favorable.

During what temperature can polyurea floors be applied?

  • It can be installed at any time
