Protective coatings for exposed concrete surfaces have become essential elements in construction projects, especially in areas that experience extreme weather conditions or are exposed to harsh chemicals, high traffic and temperature extremes. Protective coatings provide a shield between the concrete surface and the surrounding environment to provide protection from harmful effects. Some examples of protective coatings types include epoxy and polyurethane (PU) coatings, vinyl coatings, polyester coatings and more.
It starts with proper surface preparation, including chipping, grinding and shot blasting to ensure your final protective coating will last. Without a protective coating moisture can leach into concrete and cause corrosion of the steel reinforcement rods inside it, which will weaken the concrete and curtail its useful life.
