Q: Is Eco-Coat 1500 the solution to my concrete coating needs?
Eco-Coat 1500 is designed to deliver a rigid, seamless finish to both vertical
and planar concrete surfaces. Once cured, Eco-Coat 1500 exhibits a greater
impact resistance, tensile strength, and chemical and abuse resiliency than
bare concrete. Eco-Coat 1500 is ideal for a wide variety of end uses ranging
from accenting a garage floor with a durable coating system to use in
1500 is ideal for use indoors in garages, showrooms, basements, kitchens,
hallways, atriums, and warehouses. Outside, because it is UV/ color stable, it
is a perfect solution for decorative concrete patios, pathways and driveways.
Q: What are the advantages of Eco-Coat 1500 versus coatings
bought from box stores?
Unlike epoxy and urethane coatings sold in many stores, Eco-Coat 1500 is a
Polyaspartic Aliphatic Polyurea. This coating system is uniquely formulated to
provide quick return to use in any setting. Application usually can be
completed in less than one (1) day and can allow foot traffic within two (2)
hours and full operational use within twenty-four (24) hours. This is a great
benefit over epoxy and urethane systems that require as much as a week to apply
and to fully cure.
1500 demonstrates exceptional adhesion properties to all concrete surfaces and
will not peel, flake or chip. Additionally, the coating is UV stable allowing
it to retain uniform coloring and gloss even after prolonged exposure to
Q: Does it take a long time to install Eco-Coat 1500?
In most applications, Eco-Coat 1500 can be installed in less than one day. This
is perfect for homeowners who cannot store belongings outside of the garage for
more than one day. Additionally, in locations that require rapid return to use
such as manufacturing facilities, warehouses, and commercial kitchens, Eco-Coat
1500 minimizes downtime to maximize operational use and business
Q: How long does Eco-Coat 1500 last before needing to be
Eco-Coat 1500 is guaranteed to perform like new and resist fading, peeling, and
chipping for ten (10) years; however, laboratory tests suggest the product is
capable, under normal conditions, to last the lifetime of the structure. The
unparalleled durability of Eco-Coat 1500 makes it the ideal flooring solution
for any facility.
Q: How do I clean Eco-Coat 1500 to maintain its shine?
Unlike other coatings that require constant attention to keep clean and
attractive, Eco-Coat 1500 is very low maintenance. Other coatings require
frequent stripping and re-sealing or waxing to maintain a shiny, vibrant finish
whereas Eco-Coat 1500 will not dull or fade and only needs the occasional
attention of a mop and soapy water to keep it clean and glossy.
Q: Do I need to regularly buff the floor to maintain a high
The innovative formulation of Eco-Coat 1500 is uniquely resilient to light
exposure and heavy traffic, thus making it very effective at maintaining its
shine without the need to use expensive, energy consuming buffing equipment.
Q: Does Eco-Coat 1500 release offensive odors during
installation or off gas over time?
Eco-Coat 1500 is a very high-solids formulation and contains Zero Volatile
Organic Compounds (VOC’s). Not only does the product not off-gas to
release fumes into the air like many alternative coatings, but within one (1)
to two (2) hours following application, there is no trace of odor left from the
Q: Is Eco-Coat 1500 an eco-friendly product?
Eco-Protective Products uses bio based, readily renewable ingredients and
recycled material in the production of Eco-Coat 1500. Additionally, many of our
aggregate broadcast systems use recycled materials including post-consumer products.
cement based and polyurea Polyaspartic systems are composed of Zero VOC
materials, thus not contributing toward the production of ozone or creating
inhospitable working conditions due to of25fensive fumes and odors that accompany many
coating systems. Eco-Coat 1500 exhibits no off gassing over the life of the
cured floor, and the impermeable, cleanable aggregate finish prevents water and
moisture accumulation, inhibiting microbial growth. Eco-Coat 1500 serves to
create a mold-free environment with improved indoor air quality.
Q: How long after coating with Eco-Coat 1500 can I start using
the floor as intended?
For the end-user, the return to use time of Eco-Coat 1500 is truly an
invaluable benefit. The application process can be completed in one day in most
cases, and once the final coat has been applied, light foot traffic can resume
in as little as one (1) hour, and the space can be returned to full operational
use within twenty-four (24) hours in most cases.
is extremely important in manufacturing facilities, commercial spaces, and
restaurant kitchens where operational downtime is a major impediment to normal
business. For homeowners’ garages, the installation of an epoxy might require
storage of cars and belongings outside of the garage for multiple days, but
with Eco-Coat 1500, everything can be replaced the very next day.
1500 is a fast cure system. In most cases, concrete surfaces can be properly
prepped and coated with Eco-Coat 1500 in one (1) workday. More resounding is
the rapid return to use time of less than twenty-four (24) hours versus three
(3) to five (5) days with epoxy and urethane coatings.
Q: What protection does Eco-Coat 1500 provide the coated
1500 is extremely durable. Once cured, the coating is harder than concrete and
demonstrates superb resiliency to operational use, chemical exposure, extreme
heat loads, blunt impact, and Ultra Violet light.
Q: What colors and aggregate systems are available?
Eco-Coat 1500 comes in 6 standard colors: Slate Gray, Charcoal, Earthen Tan,
White, Brick Red, and Ocean Blue. Our aggregate systems are available in color
stable Quartz and Decorative Flakes in a wide variety of color combinations.
More information about the aggregate systems can be found at http://permacolorquartz.com/.
Q: Do the Eco-Coat 1500 aggregate broadcast systems provide a
slip resistant surface that meets OSHA regulations?
OSHA requires a slip resistant surface to have a coefficient of friction
greater than 0.5 for both wet and dry surfaces. Our flake aggregate systems
meet these guidelines, and for superior traction, use our quartz broadcast
systems that exceed the OSHA guidelines quite substantially.
Q: Does Eco-Coat 1500 carry a manufacturer’s warranty?
Yes. Eco-Coat 1500 carries a 10-year limited manufacturer’s warranty. The
warranty guarantees the product will not peel, chip, flake, fade or yellow
during the warranted period; however, we are confident the system will continue
performing at optimal levels long after the duration of the warranty ends.
