Fall is around the corner, seal those floors!!

Hints of fall have started to hit our area of the country (Northeast US).
It won't be long before the days will be short, nights long and cold on the way.

I mention this because it's too often we have customers wait too long to coat floors in non-heated structures IE: Garages. Epoxy coatings cure best at 68- 70 degrees and most were designed for this range. When the temperature begins to dip below 45 degrees, coatings remain open or uncured too long, causing issues with adhesion and top-coating. Remember, concrete slabs take a long time to heat up, it can take a few days to raise 10 degrees!! Coatings immediately take the temperature of the substrate, not the air.

Don't leave your project to chance. Take advantage of this terrific coating weather and get the job done, you'll be glad you did.
