Challenge

Being that Hurricanes Grill is a busy, profitable business, this left the time frame to complete the job very limited. This job required a coating that not only leaves a durable, lasting finish but that also has a short recoat window with expedient return to service time.

Randy Baird Sr., Operations Manager for Advance Industrial Coatings, and Mark Edinger, Southeast Director of Sales with Crossfield Products, conducted a meeting to discuss the needs of the job and product options. This meeting yielded the best option being the Dex-O-Tex Quik-Glaze FC clear fast cure aliphatic elastomeric polyuria. With a recoat time of 1.5 hours and a return to service time of 2 hours (at 50% RH), this product proved to not only allow for the broadcast coat but also a glaze coat and topcoat well within the given working timeframe leaving an abrasion resistant, lasting finish.

System

First, the existing surface was degreased, auto-scrubbed, given the needed profile to accept coating and solvent wiped. Next, a coat of Quik-Glaze FC was applied with a broadcast and, after dry-time and a grout coat, the surface was swept clear of all loose debris. Finally, a topcoat of Quik-Glaze FC was applied as the finish of this floor system.
