This Technology Update discusses techniques and procedures to enhance performance of concrete floors by use of resinous systems greater than 20 mils. Flooring systems covered by this TU include: thick film systems (>500 mm), self-leveling systems, slurry systems, broadcast systems, mortar systems, fabric-reinforced systems, spray applied systems, and non-waterproofing and underlayment membranes. Thin-film coatings (<500 mm) and sealers, terrazzo flooring, membrane systems designed for water-proofing, and primary and secondary containment systems are beyond the scope of this technology update. The technology update outlines techniques and procedures, with additional specific details provided in the appendices. Appendix A provides background information and requirements for the concrete substrate to which the surfacing is applied. Appendix B provides detailed information on the techniques and procedures described below.
The Technology Update is intended for use by owners, applicators, and others in the coatings and surfacings industry. It addresses the unique application properties of coating and surfacing concrete floors, and should not be used for other purposes.
