SPONSORED CONTENT 15 COATINGSPRO CONCRETE COVERED DECEMBER 2018 Concrete Proof used, General Equipment offers the SG24/GH, featuring an 11-hp Honda engine. Bosch also supplies a wide range of angle grinders, including its 4.5-inch (11.4 cm) GWS18V- 45PSC grinder. To clean up at the end of surface preparation and prior to applying a new system, vacuums such as the 2.6-gallon (9.8 L) GAS18V-3N 18V cordless wet/dry vacuum cleaner from Bosch with a washable HEPA filter can be used for thorough jobsite cleanup. "Surface prep is what we emphasize to contractors as the most important piece of long-term success of the flooring," said Ball of Sherwin-Williams. Even if there are moisture issues, one way you can combat that is good surface prep, so that there are more good bond sites to keep that coating bonded. W hether it's a shot blaster or even a grinder, and the different tooling that's out there, there's no question that surface prep is going to be the key." Coating Choices With the surface prepared, the new coating system at a concrete jobsite typically consists of some combination of coatings and penetrating sealers. Among coatings, popular General Equipment also offers a smaller surface grinder: SG24. This is offered in an electric version for when gas isn't an option, as well as a gas version for when it is. Surface prep needs to be supported by equipment, perhaps by Bosch. As Casey Ball, flooring market segment director of Sherwin-Williams said, "There's no question that surface prep is going to be the key." VENDOR TEAM 3M Safety equipment manufacturer 2501 Hudson Rd.
