Now that winter is right around the corner, it is the time of year when your home will be exposed to the most abuse. This abuse includes things like snow, rain, and ice. If you have coated concrete you will probably notice your floors might become slippery and hazardous during these colder months if you do not have any slip resistance already applied. The question arises what can you do to eliminate the slippery hazard? Learn why this happens and what you can do to keep yourself from slipping on your coated concrete .
Why Does Your Garage Coating Get so Slippery During Winter?
The surface created by coatings such as polyurethane, polyurea and epoxy are non-porous. This simply means the surface is smooth and sealed, so air and liquid can not move through it. This finish creates a surface that is very smooth and glass-like. When elements like water, snow, and mud make contact with the coated surface it can become very slick. The best way to fight this is to add a non-slip additive to your concrete coating.
