Trowel Grade Epoxy in Incline Village, NV

Commercial Epoxy FlooringIf Toughness is Wanted

Where heavy traffic or extra demands are common, your epoxy flooring needs a trowel grade application. It is the perfect technique available for maximum toughness, creating a coating with twice the thickness of our usual residential or business epoxy process. Floors that experience harsh loads, such as from heavy-duty forklifts, ideally should be protected with a trowel grade epoxy. Trowel grade also is recommended when concrete is in regular contact with corrosive or caustic chemicals.

A caveat about trowel grade epoxy is that because it is so thick, more curing time is necessary. There are also recommended conditions for applying trowel grade floors. Above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, the epoxy should solidify in 8-12 hours and the protective clear coat that goes on top can harden in the same space of time. At that point, it is okay to walk on the epoxy coat, but the full curing takes 7 days. Under 70 degrees Fahrenheit, it takes additional time for successful curing and if the temperature drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, the thickness of a trowel grade epoxy coating really should not be attempted. Therefore, this is definitely a late spring, summer, or early fall job.
