Why Industrial Traffic Concrete Coating systems for exterior concrete? What’s in it for Commercial and Institutional floor owners?

SPARTACOTE Industrial Traffic Concrete Coating systems make for excellent exterior flooring solutions for commercial and institutional exterior patio and walkway areas. These high performance coating systems offer extraordinary durability, excellent impact and abrasion resistance, easy maintenance, and long lasting flooring, all backed by a 3 year decorative surface warranty.

How are these Industrial Traffic Coating systems applied to exterior concrete?

Prepare the concrete by mechanical grind to an ICRI CSP 2. Mechanical grinding is required in order to ensure proper bonding to the SPARTACOTE industrial traffic coating system. After the concrete has been prepared to the CSP 2, the surface is ready for the base primer coat. In these coating systems, a solid color base coat is applied, followed by immediate seeding of quartz aggregate.

Once the quartz aggregate layer cures, vacuum or broom the excess quartz from the surface. Following quartz removal, the coating system is ready for the grout coat or mid coat. This coat consists of SPARTACOTE Flex SB or PURE applied over the quartz broadcast. Immediately following this application coat, broadcast a second quartz aggregate coat into the wet resin.

Allow this second quartz broadcast coat to cure. Then, vacuum or broom the excess quartz from the surface. Finally, apply the last Spartacote top coat to the system.

SPARTACOTE® Metallic Coatings and Industrial Traffic Concrete Coatings Featured at World of Concrete

SPARTACOTE® concrete coatings experts performed daily live demos of the Metallic and Industrial Traffic Coatings for concrete at the 2016 World of Concrete in Las Vegas. They held numerous coatings demos daily in front of a captive audience of concrete contractors at the outdoor Decorative Pavilion.

SPARTACOTE® Metallic coatings demoed included Cobalt Blue, Copper, and Electric Orange. These coatings systems offer versatility, high traction, and unique, one-of-a-kind coatings artistry for commercial and residential concrete floors. The Metallic coatings system includes a black base coat. The Metallic coating color is then applied over the cured black base coat in an artistic fashion. Coatings experts then add sprinkles of denatured alcohol to give the Metallic color a 3-D effect. After the Metallic color coating cures, a clear top seal coat is added to finish the Metallic system.

SPARTACOTE® Industrial Traffic Coatings for concrete are very high traction flooring solutions for commercial and industrial floors. These versatile coatings can be applied both indoors and outdoors in commercial and industrial spaces, providing safe, nonslip characteristics. Industrial Traffic Coatings systems include a PURE prime concrete coating. The installer then follows this with a quartz broadcast into the wet PURE resin. After the quartz cures into the wet resin, the excess quartz is removed from the surface. The coatings installer then applies a pigmented SPARTACOTE SB grout coat with DIAMOND TOPP traction additive dispersed into the coating. The final pigmented SPARTACOTE SB topcoat with DIAMOND TOPP traction additive is then applied to give the finished surface one of the highest traction concrete coatings available on the market today.

Thank you to all coatings contractors and surface prep contractors who visited the LATICRETE SPARTACOTE team indoors and outdoors. We look forward to […]
