When Toughness is a Requirement
Where heavy traffic or extreme demands are expected, your epoxy flooring requires trowel grade application. This is the best technique available for maximum durability, providing a surface with 4-8 times the thickness of our typical residential or commercial process. Floors that experience great weight, such as from heavy-duty forklifts, should be covered with trowel grade coatings. Trowel grade is also recommended where contact is expected with corrosive or caustic chemicals.
Due to the thickness of trowel grade epoxy, it is ideally installed in temperatures around 70 degrees Fahrenheit or more. When installed under 70 degrees, more time will be needed for curing. The average curing time to walk on the surface is approximately 8-12 hours for each coating. Full curing, when all activities may resume, takes approximately 7 days.
Trowel grade requires significant skill and experience to accurately apply. West Coast Epoxy has the crews and equipment needed to meet the needs of any commercial or industrial site.
