NEW for WOC 2023! The performance of a concrete floor depends on several factors…from selecting the right thickness to concrete mix design. One area that is not discussed as much is surface treatments that can affect strength and durability including products that are applied topically to concrete floors to achieve specific visuals and properties. Curing compounds, cure & seal products, densifiers (hardeners), epoxy coating, micro-topping, and decorative coatings are among these treatments.
Choice of technology depends on specific application and desired visuals, as well as exposure and load conditions. Various technologies along with case studies and specification guides for new and repair projects will be reviewed.
Topics to be discussed include:
• curing plus cure & seal compounds
• sealers and densifiers
• epoxy and decorative coatings
• resurfacing technologies
