When Strength is a Requirement
Trowel grade epoxy is the ultimate concrete coating for thickness and longevity! For heavy-duty equipment shops, manufacturing properties, chemical plants, and factories, trowel grade epoxies are best. They stand greater loads, corrodants, and traffic. If your concrete meets with a lot of punishment, it requires a trowel grade epoxy coating.
One caveat about trowel grade epoxy is that since it is so thick, additional curing time is likely necessary. There are simultaneously ideal conditions for laying down trowel grade flooring. Above seventy degrees Fahrenheit, F, the epoxy will harden in 8-12 hours and the protective clear coat that goes on top should harden in the same space of time. At that occasion, it is safe to walk on the epoxied floor, but the complete curing calls for seven days. Below seventy degrees Fahrenheit, F it takes added 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 attempted. So, this is usually a late spring, summer, or early fall job.
