SSPC GUIDE 20
Guide for Applying Thick Film Coatings and Surfacings Over Concrete Floors
|Publication Date:||5 May 2014|
Scope and Description
This Guide discusses techniques and procedures to select and apply resinous coating systems over concrete floors. These thick-film systems (greater than 500 micrometers [μm] [20 mils]) include self-leveling systems, slurry systems, broadcast systems, mortar systems, fabric-reinforced systems, spray applied systems, and non-waterproofing and underlayment membranes. Application of thin-film coatings (less than 500 μm [20 mils]) and sealers, terrazzo flooring, membrane systems designed for waterproofing, and primary and secondary containment systems is beyond the scope of this Guide.
The Guide is intended for use by floor surfacing contractors, owners and specifiers, and others in the coatings and surfacings industry.
