Why to Choose Polyaspartic Coatings for Marijuana Cultivation Centers
If you’re considering joining the booming marijuana cultivation business, you’ll need to think carefully about your facilities and how they’re constructed. With the marijuana business still quite new, and met with some backlash by those in the community, you want to make sure there’s nothing about your facilities that would give those in power an excuse to shut you down.
This even extends to your flooring – you want something that’s medicinal-grade, at the least, and won’t cause any sort of health violations. Polyaspartic floor coatings can be the perfect solution. So, it’s a low-cost option with a long lifespan and superior performance in clean rooms. In a previous blog post, we discussed how to choose marijuana dispensary and cultivation center flooring. Now, we will go through why polyaspartic coatings are the best choice for marijuana cultivation floors.
Why Polyaspartic Coatings Make Sense for Marijuana Cultivation
Polyaspartic coatings are a form of polyurethane, formulated to remain stable as a liquid mixture for longer. As a result, this makes them easier to work with and to spread onto floors more smoothly before they begin to harden into the final coating. Like regular polyurethane, polyaspartic coatings are applied to a basic concrete slab to enhance its flooring properties.
This combination of a concrete + rubberized coating is a perfect choice for marijuana grow operations for several reasons:
1 – A single seamless surface
Because polyaspartic coatings are sprayed on and spread evenly across the floor, they harden into a single surface. They can even form seamless seals with architectural components like support pillars which are attached to the floor. There are no gaps, cracks, or other disruptions in the floor surface.
2 – Hygienic and easy to clean
Because the floor is seamless, it becomes far easier to maintain hygiene in sensitive operations. Mold, bacteria and other microbial life have nowhere to “dig in” and grow. The surface itself can be cleaned simply and easily with any typical cleaning products.
3 – Anti-slip properties
If you’re putting flooring into a grow room, you have to consider the possibility of leaks and spills from the hydration system. Like all rubber-style flooring options, polyaspartic coatings are naturally anti-slip. Plus, they’re easy to clean when a spill happens.
4 – Many colors and finish options
Do you want a grow room you can show off or perhaps a dispensary area for patients? You have plenty of options in color, finish, and texture to create a floor that looks as nice as it performs. It’s a good option if you want to wow investors, guests, or customers.
