Hawk CFC provides superior Polyaspartic Coatings to Perth and throughout Western Australia – Is It Right For Your Floor?
Polyaspartic resins are essentially fast curing, hybrid polyurethane variations. Polyurethane, both solvent based and some water based versions, has developed a reputation for high strength, scratch resistance, high gloss, flexibility and adhesion characteristics. Having been developed from polyurethane technology, the flooring has retained some of these characteristics, has excelled in some, and has also lost some of these positive traits.
At HAWK CFC we believe that polyaspartic resins have their place in the world of resins. Many manufacturers of the product have touted it as the one-size-fits-all perfect solution for every circumstance. However, despite many manufacturer’s claims, it does not possess greater adhesion compared to epoxy and polyurethane. It has far less adhesion compared to epoxy, and application (real-life) experience confirms that it has less ability to tolerate adhesion hazards such as dusting and moisture in comparison to its Polyurethane forefather. Application requirements (team size, equipment, etc) are also a drawback on this type of material.
As with all things in the world of construction chemistry, it should be used as part of an overall system, not as a standalone product – in many instances the team at Hawk CFC will use it as an intermediate coat or a top coat, but rarely as a primer coat.

Choosing The Right Floor For You
Polyaspartic has a high level of chemical resistance, gloss retention, UV stability, and cure rate, however, like all materials in the flooring industry, has its pros and it’s cons. It is a fantastic addition to the product range of an experienced flooring team and can be used successfully in the following scenarios:
As a top coat over properly prepared high film thickness (build) coatings.
As a cost saving application directly over a concrete floor.
As a fast-cure flake floor system; you won’t achieve the high-end type finish that can be achieved with alternative coatings such as Hawk CFCs Fast Cure Resin, but it will save you money.
Unfortunately, manufacturers and suppliers of these types of products often tout them as being the One-Stop Shop in floor coatings, but a trail of unhappy customers proves that it is being used in the wrong scenarios too often.
The key advantage of this resin is it’s flexibility: These resins can typically be built to approximately 200 microns (depending on the brand) and yet remain flexible enough to expand, shrink or bend with a moving concrete slab.
If you were to hold the cured material in your hand as a disc, you would be able to bend and twist it without it breaking and without it showing signs of stress, while the hardness and scratch resistance is maintained, despite its increase in flexural strength.
Why Hawk CFC
Hawk CFC install a variety of floor coatings and are not biased in towards any one particular kind of resin; we will give you an accurate rundown on the type of resin you need for your environment. We modify all of our resin to suit the individual needs of individual customers, because there is no such thing as a ‘one-size-fits-all’ resin. Every concrete slab behaves differently, therefore very often in this industry, new complexities can arise in the midst of a job, requiring acute expertise to both assess the best way forward and execute the task in such a way that the desired result is still achieved, without compromising the durability and longevity of the floor. We will work with you not only in finding the right flooring solution for your space, but throughout the installation and the life of your floor as well, ensuring your floor will outlast all the rest on the market.
