The most thorough, hands-on training in the industry. Come and install a couple of garage floors with the most knowledgeable applicators in Canada. We offer the only private training sessions available, and we train installing in residential garages, not in a classroom / warehouse. We manufacture the highest quality polyaspartic materials.
Unique and Superior Properties
• One-Day Installation with Next-Day Return to Service, foot traffic in just 2-4 hours
• 3-4x More Abrasion Resistant than Epoxy & Urethane Systems
• Low Temperature Application (-30f to 150f)
• 100% UV Clear with Excellent Color & Gloss Retention
Iron Man Coatings® polyaspartic aliphatic polyurea is a two-component, fast-curing primer sealer/finish coating for decorative and protective applications. Our coating is suitable for both interior and exterior applications over properly prepared substrates such as concrete, wood, and polymer-modified overlays.
Iron Man Coatings® polyaspartic features superior penetration and bond strength, abrasion ,impact, and wear resistance, flexibility, and UV stability. Our coatings are highly resistant to a vast array of chemicals, and will not peel up under hot tires.
Our coatings are ideal for garages, warehouses, labs, service areas, showrooms, patios, pool decks, walkways, aircraft hangers, commercial kitchens, washrooms, animal shelters, basements.

Before application the receiving surface must be deemed structurally and mechanically sound, clean, and dry. Proper surface preparation is required for decorative concrete,thin-film “Class-A-type” flooring systems or sealer/finish coatings. This is best achieved with mechanical grinding machines using diamond heads achieving a final 30- to 120-grit profile. Recommended surface profile is SP-2, Reference ICRI Technical Guideline No. 03732. www.ICRI.org
All receiving surfaces must be free of previous coatings, sealers, curing compounds, water repellents, laitance, efflorescence, oils, fats, grease, waxes, residues from cleaning compounds, non-visible soluble salts, and any other impediments to adhesion. The resulting surface must be a neutral pH 7.
Always check for potential bond breakers. One method is pouring a slight amount of water on the concrete in random areas. If the water is absorbed into the concrete and leaves it wet, the substrate is porous and thus acceptable. If water beads up, this indicates
a bond breaker is still present and further surface preparation steps are necessary, such as additional mechanical grinding.
The rising moisture vapor emission rate must not exceed 3 pounds per 1,000 square feet (3 lb/1,000 ft²) over a 24-hour period as measured by the calcium chloride test method, ASTM F-1869. The relative humidity in the slab must not exceed 80 percent. Any repairs that are not associated with normal cleaning and surface preparation work (i.e., cracks, chips, pitted/severe spalls deemed non-structurally sound or have levelness issues) must be properly addressed and remedied prior to application of the coating due to the fact that coatings follow the contours of the existing substrate. All spalls and cracks should be repaired in accordance with ICRI standards.
Mix part A and part B in equal parts (1:1) using a clean, dry working pot. Stir gently, avoid over-mixing or creating a vortex that
would introduce moisture. Do not mix below the dew point, which will shorten the pot life. No induction time is required prior to use.
If micro-media agents are to be incorporated, they are to be added after thoroughly mixing A and B.
Roller application is recommended. The roller must have an industrial grade phenolic resin core with a synthetic nap or lambs-wool cover. 1/8” to 3/8” nap. The coating will typically be dry to the touch 1 to 2 hours after application, dependent on ambient temperature, slab temperature and humidity. Product may be re-coated at that time or when deemed appropriate by system specification.
Always use good air ventilation to remove evaporating solvents from enclosed areas.
Polyaspartic aliphatic polyurea products contain chemical ingredients that are considered hazardous. Read the container label
warning and Material Safety Data Sheet prior to use.
Use Xylol or MEK. Do Not use Alcohols.
