5120 Pigmented Polyaspartic Flooring now Available in 3 Colors

Our 5120 Polyaspartic has been formulated to be one of the easiest Polyaspartic’s Floor Coatings to apply by roller and brush, making it the ideal topcoat to use over a variety of Concrete and Epoxy Flooring. This unique formulation allows for more than 45 minutes of potlife (which is more than enough for most Floor Coating installers), yet the material dries in as little as 20 minutes when applied to the flooring surface. In most cases you can get back on the floor in 60 minutes and it will accept light vehicle traffic the next day (please use care since it is not fully cure). Use 5120 when you need a faster turnaround time and you can install it at temperatures ranging from 30-100 Degrees Fahrenheit

Easily Applied over Epoxy Floors

We have reduced the 5120 Polyaspartic viscosity down to levels comparable to a medium solids CRU (chemical resistant urethane). The benefits of this is that the Polyaspartic Floor Sealer is easier to install, has more pot life, cures to a hard film faster (dries in just about an hour) and is suitable for exterior exposure without yellowing. The only drawback is that 5120 Flooring Polyaspartic is considered combustible and its use should be restricted to well ventilated areas.

Fast Turn Around Time

Use 5120 Polyaspartic Pigmented Floor Sealer when you need a faster turnaround time so you can get that coated concrete floor back in service fast. 5120 is perfect when you want a solid color topcoat over your epoxy floor. 5120 is abrasion resistant and UV resistant plus it dries really fast (dries in under 60 minutes) so you can get your floor back in service quickly.

Microphone Here is a nice testimonial we received for our traning work shop.

Hi Jimmy,

Had a great time on Friday at your training seminar. Over the years I’ve been to many, many but yours was by far the best. Great presentation! I really want to come back and check out your overlays. They were very impressive. I believe that will be in March. I’ll keep in touch.

Thanks again, Jeff P. Concrete Custom Designs

January – 1st Place winner receives $100 Coupon

Congratulations to Randy with Pro Seal for winning 1st place in the January Monthly Photo Contest.

Randy submitted these shots showing off a nice 1,800 sq ft commercial floor that he applied our Roll on Rock Epoxy Flooring using the Brindle Flake. What we really like here is that it provides a great example on how you can incorporate high risk cracks into the finished appearance of this Auto Shop floor. By doing this Randy will not have to be concerned with the customer calling him back to do a repair when the concrete moves/cracks again, which it will…

Metal Lath Price Increase

We will be raising the price of Metal lath Cement by 10% due to some heavy price increases passed on to us by one of the raw material suppliers. Metal lathe Cement is a polymer modified fast setting Non-Shrink repair mortar. It can be troweled from 2-inches to a feather edge and not crack. Metal Lathe Cement will dry in 60-90 minutes and it will accept most coatings at that point. The adhesion of Metal Lathe Cement to plywood or concrete is fantastic. When tested with our deck coating system the adhesion of the metal lathe cement to plywood was greater than the adhesion of 18 1-inch staples per sq ft. Use Metal Lathe Cement to repair defects or create slope in existing walking areas. Metal Lathe Cement does not contain gypsum so it may be used on exterior surfaces. Just add 1 gallon of water per bag and mix, pour and place. It is that easy.
