If Toughness is a Demand
Where continuous traffic or great demands are common, your epoxy flooring must have trowel grade application. It is the best system available for maximum longevity, making a surface with double the thickness of our typical business or residential process. Floors that undergo much mass, such as from heavy-duty forklifts, ought to be covered with trowel grade epoxy. Trowel grade also is suggested when concrete contact with caustic or corrosive chemicals is common.

Above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, F, the epoxy will cure in eight to twelve hours time and the protective clear coat that goes on top can solidify in the same space of time. At that point, it is OK to walk on the epoxy floor, but the final cure specifies 7 days. Below 70 degrees Fahrenheit, F it takes added time for sufficient curing and if the temperature drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, F, the thickness of a trowel grade epoxy floor really should not be attempted. Therefore, this is definitely a late spring, summer, or early fall job.
