Get Lasting Construction Quality With UV Coating for Concrete
Concrete is an extremely useful material that is used for construction all around the world. However, it is a porous material that can degrade over time when exposed to weather, foot traffic and other normal wear and tear. Coatings can help seal concrete and ensure its lasting structural integrity and aesthetic appeal. Allied Photo Chemical offers a UV coating for concrete that can be applied faster than conventional methods.
What is UV Coating
UV coating applies a layer of coating to concrete that is cured using an ultraviolet light. This minimizes or even eliminates the need for solvents, depending on the process used. It offers protection to concrete without the long drying times of conventional coating methods. There are three main UV coating technologies: UV cured, water-based, and solvent-based. The former uses 100-percent coating and UV curing. Water- and solvent-based UV coatings mix the qualities of conventional coatings with UV technology.
Coating is particularly useful for high-usage concrete applications such as floors. Coated floors need periodic re-applications to maintain quality. The short drying times of UV coating for concrete means less downtime whether at the beginning of a construction project or during active use. In addition to being faster than conventional methods, UV coating is also more environmentally friendly. It reduces or eliminates the need for solvents. This also means it is safer for people during the curing process.
