16 CONCRETE COVERED 2017 COATINGSPROMAG.COM A lthough polyurea products can be more expensive, the expediency of some of the offerings has many contractors open to paying a higher price. "ey' ll pay more if it works," Paine said of contractors. "ey' ll pay a little more for the product itself, but they can finish jobs in a day versus having to come back the next day or even a third day. e second thing is that it gets the end user back to the site earlier. e savings of downtime and labor can offset the cost of the product." Traditional and less expensive epoxies and urethanes also remain viable, and advances are being made to push the timetables on those as well. For instance, the Series 208 Epoxoprime MV T is a moisture-vapor-tolerant, high-solids epoxy primer from Tnemec that can be applied as early as 10 days after new concrete is installed, instead of the standard Cementing Success VENDOR TEAM 3M Safety equipment manufacturer 2501 Hudson Rd.

"We wanted to help our installers when they have requests for jobs that need a fast turnaround," said Paul Koury, president of Westcoat. Speeding up the time it takes to top a curing concrete is another trend. Usually concrete cures for ~28 days, but companies, such as Tnemec, are creating products that can be applied much sooner.
