TASTING ROOM CONUNDRUM
Orfila needed something to protect the concrete in their new tasting room and they were referred by a neighboring restaurant where we did a similar Grind and Seal floor. The floor would experience not only food and wine spills but the potential for pet clean-up as well. After thorough discussion with the owner and general contractor a Grind and Seal system was chosen to complete the look of the modern yet rustic space.
This concrete was prepped with a light grind at 30/40 grit to start then all significant holes and cracks were patched with TC-29, a fast drying concrete patch compound. A final diamond grind with 60/80 grit was executed prior to two coats of SC-65 Clear Water-Based Polyurethane Topcoat. The kitchen was also prepped the same way but stained and then a base coat of EC-11 Clear Primer was applied prior to the SC-65 final coat. This USDA Compliant floor is ready to stand up to the rigors of everyday wine and food spills.
The Surface Coat category of Westcoat systems offers many solutions for anyone looking for a stylish concrete look. These systems often highlight the existing concrete, showing off the aggregates and natural subtleties, without covering it up with an opaque coating. A Grind & Seal system can be finished with the same protection that all of our systems are known for whether its USDA compliant or skid resistant.
