If Toughness is Needed
Trowel grade epoxy is the ultimate concrete coat for thickness and toughness! For heavy-duty workshops, manufacturing warehouses, chemical plants, and factories, trowel grade epoxies are ideal. They handle greater weight, corrodents, and traffic. If your floor meets with much punishment, it must have a trowel grade epoxy coating!
One caveat about trowel grade epoxy is that as it is so thick, curing time is likely necessary. There are simultaneously ideal temperatures for installing trowel grade floors. Above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, the epoxy can cure in eight to twelve hours and the protective clear coat that goes on top can solidify in the same amount of time. At that time, it is okay to walk on the epoxied floor, but the full curing necessitates 7 days. Below 70 degrees Fahrenheit, it takes additional time for sufficient curing and if the temperature drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, the thickness of a trowel grade epoxy coating really should not be attempted. Given these required temperatures, this is usually a late spring, summer, or early fall job.
Trowel grade epoxies are not for DIY fans! Experience and skill are needed, as well as quality troweling equipment.
