If Endurance is Demanded
Where hard traffic or higher demands are expected, your epoxy flooring must have trowel grade application. It is the finest method available for maximal durability, making a coating with twice the thickness of our usual residential or commercial process. Floors that undergo heavier than normal loads, such as from heavy-duty forklifts, ideally should be coated with trowel grade epoxy. Trowel grade also is suggested if the concrete is commonly in contact with corrosive or caustic chemicals.
With thicker coats comes added time for curing. Optimally, trowel grade epoxy is laid at temperatures of seventy degrees Fahrenheit, F or higher. Below that, and the epoxy, with its clear coat, takes longer to cure. The ordinary curing time is 8 to 12 hours for each coating. The full cure, when ordinary activities can begin again, is after seven days. Below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, F, trowel grade epoxies are best not tried.
Trowel grade necessitates significant experience and skill to lay down properly. West Coast Epoxy has the staff and tools required to match the requirements of any commercial or industrial property.
