When one of the most prominent and beautiful Performing Art Facilities in the state of Wisconsin was looking for the right flooring solution for their beautiful facility they contacted Floorcare USA Inc., and Tennant Coatings to help them with their problem.

This Madison, Wisconsin Performing Arts Facility had a concrete floor problem that needed a serious floor solution that met with the following design criteria:

  • Fluid Applied Epoxy Floor Coating System for Concrete
  •  Durable
  • Easy To clean
  • Custom Pigment
  • High traction under wet conditions
  • Easy to recoat and refresh

Floorcare USA and Tennant Coatings met with this Madison, Wisconsin Performing Arts Center design team and helped to engineer a perfect solution:

  1. Mechanical prep of the concrete surface
  2. Taking great care to protect and cut around all chair legs and fixtures
  3. Application of Tennant Coatings 100% solids Epoxy Primer Coat in custom colorant
  4. Application of Tennant Coatings 100% solids epoxy base coat in custom colorant
  5. Application of Tennant Coatings 100% solids High Traffic Urethane top coat in custom colorant

All concrete floor coating systems and epoxy coating systems are not created equal as there are significant performance differences. 100% solid epoxy concrete coatings are good for adhering to concrete and to smooth out and mask imperfections in your concrete. However, epoxy concrete coatings do have limitations as they are not the best wear surface for a concrete coated slabs.
Tennant Coatings has engineered and advanced concrete floor coating product that is 4-8 times more durable and scratch resistant than epoxy and its called: Tennant ECO-HTS High Traffic System.
Tennant ECO-HTS High Traffic System is specially engineered to make up for the limitations of epoxy coatings for concrete by offering:

  1.  4-8 times the abrasion resistance of epoxy per ASTMD4060 much less likely to scratch
  2. High traction under conditions when compared to epoxy
  3. Easier to clean that gritted epoxy
  4. UV-stable; it will maintain its color integrity for a much longer time when compared to epoxy

Upon completion of this Madison, Wisconsin Performing arts center project, the client now has the absolute best performing epoxy coated concrete flooring system with High Traffic Urethane top coat system that is available in the industry.

Tennant ECO-HTS High traffic urethane offers the following performance advantages as well:

  • INCREASED APPEARANCE – Non-yellowing formula comes in a variety of UV-stable colors
