This paper will explore High-Performance Concrete Floor Coatings. It will include the basic characteristics of concrete as a floor substrate. We will examine the importance of preliminary inspection and surface preparation. We will discuss the basic generic types of coatings available and the selection of the appropriate system. We will conclude with an overview of the proper application of the coatings.
In the past, the present and undoubtedly in the future, coating specifications will be written and included in bid packages that will end up on your desk, mine and our fellow colleagues. Often these specifications are poorly written, boiler plated or haphazardly thrown together to hopefully provide us with enough information to successfully win and complete a given contract.
