Safe Non-Skid Floor Coating
TMI CHEM-RESIST is recommended for floors subjected to heavy traffic, chemicals, areas requiring a safe, non-skid surface. This coating is durable, sanitary and easy to clean.
TMI 100% solids CHEM-RESIST epoxy flooring will protect your concrete floor from everyday wear-and-tear. 100% solids means minimal solvents are used during mixing and therefore no unpleasant odors are emitted during application. The glossy, seamless finish is easy to clean and sanitize. Antimicrobial additives can be incorporated. The flooring is USDA approved for use in food environments and aggregate can be added for a slip resistant finish.
CHEM-RESIST is available in clear and a variety of colors. TMI can match any color to meet a customer’s preference.
Benefits of TMI CHEM-RESIST Epoxy Flooring:
- Fast curing for shorter down times
- No odor, will not affect taste or food during installation and cure time
- Tenacious bonding quality
- Minimizes concrete dusting allowing for easier cleaning
- Can be applied to new and used concrete
Methods of Surface Preparation Before Applying Flooring
To remove grease and oil from substrate.
Older technology; used to neutralize concrete. Concrete is an alkaline material and by acid etching, the floor is neutralized.
Dust-free removal of old floor coatings; used on new concrete to clean and roughen for maximum flooring adhesion.
Hard-to-reach areas (around columns, equipment legs, perimeter walls, etc.) where the shot blaster can’t reach are hand ground with vacuum shrouded 4” to 7” grinders or TMI’s walk behind diamond grinder unit with five independent rotating heads is used for old floor coating removal. This unit is ideal for large (greater than 3,000 sq. ft.) concrete floors to remove mastics, thin-set, heavy mil coatings, and high spots. It has a variable speed drive which is especially helpful when the floor has been previously coated.
Large, walk-behind 20-30-inch sanding discs with varying degrees of coarseness are used to prepare concrete substrates.

TMI CHEM-RESIST Novolac Epoxy Flooring
TMI CHEM-RESIST Novolac epoxy flooring will protect your concrete floor from most solvents and most organic and inorganic acids including splash and spill of 98% sulfuric acid. In addition to the superior chemical resistance, heat distortion resistance is also greatly improved. CHEM-RESIST Novolac is commonly installed as a top coat to improve chemical resistance. Novolac has very good stain resistance.
TMI CHEM-RESIST Novolac is a low odor, 100% solids epoxy formulation. 100% solids means no solvents are used during mixing and therefore no unpleasant odors are emitted during application.
Uses For TMI CHEM-RESIST Novolac:
• Battery Charge Areas
Per Eric Anderson, November 2, 2017,
“Floor looks beautiful! Nice and clean, perfect! TMI Coatings did a great job. I have no complaints and couldn’t be happier with it. Only problem is that it brought to light the other areas in the facility that we should get addressed.”
