Many resins require day of curing before ‘light’ foot traffic is allowed, then another week before the floor is fully cured. For a busy industry that does not sleep or close, excessive curing times are simply not an option. There are resins that cure much fast, in as little as an hour! In some cases, turnaround can be within 24 hours, or over the course of a couple of night shifts to keep your business running in meantime.
The difficulty with rapid-cure resins is that they belong to a specialised industry; expertise are the name of the game if you want your installers to be in and out without a hiccup. Rapid-cure resins do not respond to atmospheric conditions in the same way that other epoxies might, and because they cure FAST, the installers have to work twice as fast so as to continue working on a wet surface. If the cured resin were to catch up to the installer, you will end up with unsightly seams across your floor.
