If Strength is a Requirement
Trowel grade epoxy is the maximum concrete coating for thickness and toughness! For heavy-duty shops, manufacturing properties, chemical plants, and factories, trowel grade epoxies are best. They endure more mass, caustics, and traffic. If your concrete endures a lot of punishment, it requires a trowel grade epoxy coating.
The thicker the epoxy, the more curing time is necessary. There are ideal temperatures for laying down trowel grade flooring. Above seventy degrees Fahrenheit, F, the epoxy should harden in 8-12 hours time. The protective clear coat that goes on top can harden in 8-12 hours time as well. At that point, it is OK to walk on the epoxied floor, but the full cure calls for 7 days. Under 70 degrees Fahrenheit, F it takes more time for successful curing and if the temperature drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, F, the thickness of a trowel grade epoxy coating really should not be tried. Therefore, this is definitely a late spring, summer, or early fall job.
Trowel grade epoxies are not for DIY projects! Experience and skill are necessary, as well as quality troweling equipment.
