General Polymers GP 4850 Base and Top Coat System

Our amazing General Polymers line gives Home Garage Floor greater flexibility with an extended open time, Sherwin-Williams General Polymers® GP4850 Polyaspartic Floor Coating SS is the leading edge in floor coating systems. The product is specifically designed to meet the needs of those looking for a coating that dries fast for quick return to service, residentially and commercially, but that also has a longer working time and recoat window for increased application ease and flexibility. Polaspartic top coat flooring is 300 times more pliable than traditional epoxy.

With a working time of 15 to 20 minutes, GP4850 coating allows Home Garage Floors applicators to evenly the product for our flooring projects without concern that the coating will set too quickly on the substrate. The product also offers improved flow and self leveling characteristics to further minimize the potential for roller marks, enabling our applicators to create a uniform, smooth finish. It offers good mechanical strength, and low-temperature cure, along with excellent UV stability and chemical resistance.

Our GP4850 coating has a broad recoat window of 6 to 36 hours, which also allows for more scheduling flexibility as applicators can apply the top coat one to two days after application began.

Despite its slower-set characteristics, this polyaspartic coating still enables a faster return to service than typical urethane or epoxy flooring systems, as it can handle foot traffic within 6 hours of application. Intended for use as both a solid or decorative finish, Home Garage Floors GP4850 base coat application is squeegeed and back roll-applied directly to concrete substrates this provides a long lasting, extended life coating system.

GP4850 is recommended for use in a wide variety of markets and applications, including areas experiencing impacts and abrasions. Recommended usage includes food and beverage and pharmaceutical processing areas, cold storage areas, garages, restrooms, locker rooms, and hallways/corridors, interior and exterior. It is acceptable for use in USDA-inspected and Canadian food processing facilities.

It is also recommended for use in the healthcare market, as well as the general industrial and commercial infrastructure markets for use in warehouses, showrooms, aircraft hangars, and more.
