How to Treat Concrete

Concrete floors require protection. Choosing the right concrete floor coating system is essential to meeting the performance requirements of commercial, industrial or residential environments. This course discusses the assessment and repair of a concrete floor and specifies how to select a high performance coating system based on the conditions and requirements of a construction project.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Evaluate how to control and possibly conquer the biggest problem that concrete has as a surfacing material
  2. Identify the design criteria needed to properly specify a high performance coating system for a concrete floor based on the needs of the application
  3. Discuss common problems associated with concrete construction and describe how they impact a concrete floor's appearance and performance
  4. Recognize the differences between the technologies of a variety of high performance coating systems for concrete floors and discuss their potential uses
