Trowel Grade Epoxy in Truckee, CA

Commercial Epoxy FlooringIf Endurance is a Requirement

Where excessive traffic or extreme demands are expected, your epoxy flooring needs a trowel grade application. It is the best method available for ultimate longevity, designing a surface with twice the thickness of our usual business or residential epoxy process. Floors that experience weighty loads, such as from heavy-duty forklifts, should be protected with trowel grade epoxy. Trowel grade is also suggested where concrete comes in contact with corrosive or caustic chemicals.

The added thickness of a trowel grade epoxy requires additional curing time. In addition, there are specific ideal conditions for installing trowel grade flooring. Above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, the epoxy can solidify in 8-12 hours and the protective clear coat that goes on top can cure in the same amount of time. At that time, it is OK to walk on the epoxied floor, but the complete curing calls for seven days. Under 70 degrees Fahrenheit, it takes extra 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. Therefore, this is usually a late spring, summer, or early fall job.

Trowel grade takes significant skill and experience to install correctly. Nevada Custom Coatings has the crews and tools required to equal the needs of any commercial or industrial building.
