When Strength is a Requirement
Trowel grade epoxy is the maximal concrete coating for thickness and longevity! For heavy-duty equipment shops, industrial properties, chemical plants, and factories, trowel grade coats are essential. They handle more weight, caustics, and traffic. If your concrete withstands a lot of punishment, it requires a trowel grade epoxy coating.
One caveat about trowel grade epoxy is that as it is thicker, added curing time is likely necessary. There are additionally ideal conditions for laying down trowel grade floors. Above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, F, the epoxy will cure in 8 to 12 hours time and the protective clear coat that goes on top will solidify in the same amount of time. At that moment, it is OK to walk on the epoxied floor, but the full curing calls for seven days. Below seventy degrees Fahrenheit, F it takes additional time for sufficient curing and if the temperature drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, F, the thickness of a trowel grade epoxy coating really should not be tried. Thus, this is definitely a late spring, summer, or early autumn job.
Trowel grade coats are not for DIYs! Skill and experience are necessary, as well as high-grade troweling tools.
