When Toughness is a Demand
Where heavy traffic or extreme demands are normal, your epoxy flooring requires trowel grade application. It is the finest system available for ultimate endurance, making a coating with twice the thickness of our typical residential or business process. Floors that support great loads, such as from heavy-duty forklifts, ought to be covered with trowel grade epoxy. Trowel grade also is suggested when concrete contact with corrosive or caustic chemicals is common.
Considering how thick trowel grade epoxy is, added curing time is likely needed. There are ideal temperature conditions for applying trowel grade flooring. Above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, F, the epoxy will solidify in 8 to 12 hours and the protective clear coat that goes on top will cure in the same amount of time. At that moment, it is OK to walk on the epoxy floor, but the complete cure demands seven days. Below 70 degrees Fahrenheit, F it takes extra time for successful curing and if the temperature drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, F, the thickness of a trowel grade epoxy floor really should not be tried. Thus, this is usually a late spring, summer, or early autumn job.
