Cold temperature floor care/ repair

Be warned: Don’t let the early spring sunshine tempt you into a bad decision.

For example a concrete slab in a garage or warehouse, will be unlikely to exceed temperatures of 5-10 degrees Celsius for most of the winter.

This is a problem for busy commercial car workshops and production facilities who need to repair their floors, but cannot afford to shut down whilst the mortar or epoxy cures. Turning the heating on, has little effect as it heats up the air above the concrete and not the floor itself.

Keeping the product warm before mixing will help along with preheating any holes if possible before filling.


When Is It Safe To Walk/ Drive On The Floor?

At a floor temperature of between 5 and 10 degrees Celsius, it can be trafficked after 16-24 hours .Regardless of its ability to cure at low temperatures, the coating may still be soft, and vulnerable to damage, for the first week or two.

Whilst we cannot change the nature of epoxy mortars, working around the problem may involve filling the floor in sections, applying the product during a Christmas shut-down, or waiting until the temperatures have risen (which allows for a wider choice of product).
