Epoxy should really only be applied to a CSP1 or CSP2 concrete profile. Even when applied to a perfect and ideal profile, heat, cold, and weathering can happen.
Generally an epoxy floor can accept light foot traffic within 24 hours, but it can be 72-96 hours (or more) before it’s ready for vehicle traffic. That could be 4-5 days of down time.
We know that epoxy floors cost less, up front. The problem with being cheap is that… well, you’ll likely end up with a more expensive problem, long term. When your epoxy starts chipping and peeling, you’ll need to remove it, which is expensive. Then you’ll realize you should have chosen Titan to begin with.
Epoxy coatings get their (awful) smell from things called volatile organic compounds. VOC’s, without getting deep into the science of it, are terrible for the environment. That’s why most epoxy coatings are not USDA rated for incidental food contact, and can’t be used in food processing facilities.
Because we use a hybrid polyurea surface, Titan floors can be applied to a variety of concrete profiles, which means your floors will maintain their “feel” without always needing to be glass-smooth.
Within six hours of our crew leaving, you’ll be able to walk on your floors. Within 24 hours, you can park your car. The short cure time means it’s easier to schedule, and takes less time out of your life.
Titan uses a proprietary polyaspartic ester, which extends the life of our product, specifically on concrete. Polyurea products are used on pipes, railcars, water tanks, and much more — but our blend is made specifically for concrete surfaces with foot or vehicle traffic.
Titan floors are ZERO-VOC, so we can use them in confined spaces, like basements, garages, and warehouses. Since there are no volatile organic compounds, we’re the most environmentally friendly way to finish concrete.
A Titan floor is a revolutionary and proprietary system, made up of a hybrid of polyurea and polyaspartic. Our high-tech system can be used for numerous residential and commercial concrete applications.
Other coatings like epoxy and urethane used to be a popular choice when an abrasion-resistant concrete coating was needed. However, polyaspartic outperforms them. Our product is not only durable and protects against abrasion, but it also provides many other benefits other coatings don’t.
Thanks to our hybrid solution, Titan floors can be applied to different types of concrete profiles. Your floors will always look like new with our system. Epoxy, on the other hand, only works on CSP1 or CSP2 concrete profiles, and even when heat and cold are in the ideal conditions for installation, weather can affect it.
Our Titan floors allow you to walk after six hours our crew has left, and within 24 hours, you can park a car. Meanwhile, epoxy floors can take up to 4 to 5 days to cure and only accept light foot traffic after 24 hours.
Epoxy floors cost less upfront. However, in the long term, it ends up being more expensive, as epoxy floors chip and peel to the extent that replacement will be needed. Our proprietary polyaspartic/polyurea compound doesn’t peel or crack, and it exponentially extends the life of all concrete surfaces.
When epoxy coatings get applied, they smell horrible, as it releases volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which is terrible for the environment. Titan floors, however, are zero-VOC, so they can even be used in confined spaces like basements, garages, and warehouses.
Our system is the most environmentally friendly way to finish concrete, and it’s USDA-approved for incidental food contact, making it safe for families and kids.
Our concrete flooring solutions are a lifetime investment. We provide different types of finishes and over 150 colors for all sorts of commercial and residential concrete surfaces. It’s time to make your floors more appealing.
