To Coat or Not to Coat

by Performance Epoxy

Here in the Midwest decks, and other outdoor areas need constant care due to our ever changing weather. Every spring you will most likely find your neighbor or several of your neighbors discussing with pained expressions the sorry state of their deck, due to a Midwest winter.

Performance Deck-Coat hopes to change that conversation by providing you an exceptional coating formula. If you are reading this article you’re probably already familiar with epoxy coating. If you stumbled here by some strange internet rabbit hole let’s back up. What is epoxy and how does it work?

An epoxy coating is a coating compound consisting of two elements: an epoxy resin and a polyamine hardener or a catalyst. When mixed, the resin and hardener create a chemical reaction. When the epoxy coating is fully cured, the resulting product is a rigid plastic coating. Epoxy coatings provide durability, are impact resistant and protect and prolong the life of the surfaces they cover.

If you have taken your car in for service you may have noticed the shine on the service center’s floor, that isn’t because automotive professionals loved a shiny floor, though I’m sure some do. No, the shine is from an epoxy coating that keeps their floors resistant to chemicals. Epoxy protects surfaces from liquids or substances that would normally be absorbed.

Performance Deck-Coat takes this process a step further by continuously testing and improving the chemistry of our product. Because we have such high standards our deck coat is 5x thicker than our competitor’s water based epoxy. This thicker coat allows for a single application. Performance Deck-Coat resists most chemicals including salt and oil. Our deck coat can be ready to use in 24 hours, is dust proof, increases light reflectivity and for those sensitive noses the product is odorless and offers 0 VOC’s.

It can be used on a variety of surfaces. Including, concrete, wood and metal, and comes in six color options. Such as Blue Gray Blend, Canyon Ivory, Green Blend and Hunter Beige Blend. We know, you couldn’t ask for more!

Now you may be intrigued, you could be thinking - Yes! This is exactly what I was looking for and yea, my deck is looking a little dingy, but this deck-coat process sounds complicated. We can tell you the process is no harder than changing a tire, unless you struggle with changing a tire, then it’s easier.

We offer product installation or a simple step by step DIY process which includes.

Surface Preparation - Powerwash
Replace any damaged or rotten wood
Apply base coat
Apply rejection flake
Apply UV Polyaspartic - Helps the deck coating to not scratch or scuff.

Once completed our Performance Deck-Coat offers a beautiful even surface that is slip resistant.
