If Toughness is Desired
Trowel grade epoxy is the ultimate concrete coating for thickness and toughness! For heavy-duty shops, industrial workshops, chemical plants, and factories, trowel grade coatings are ultimate. They handle greater mass, corrosives, and traffic. If your concrete endures a lot of punishment, it requires a trowel grade epoxy covering.
One caveat about trowel grade epoxy is that as it is thicker, additional curing time is required. There are ideal conditions for installing trowel grade floors. Above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, F, the epoxy will cure in 8 to 12 hours time. The protective clear coat that goes on top can cure in that same time. After this curing time, it is safe to walk on the epoxy floor, but the full cure specifies 7 days. Below 70 degrees Fahrenheit, F it takes extra 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 usually a late spring, summer, or early autumn job.
Trowel grade epoxies are not for DIY fans! Skills and experience are essential, as well as professional troweling equipment. That is why West Coast Epoxy is here for you in Orangevale to use the correct materials and crews to do the job if trowel grade coatings are needed.
