hello, how long should I let my floor dry before I apply epoxy. its Sherwin Williams tile clad. the manufacturer doesn't state the time. its a 30X40 slab on the front of the building. the sun is out and there is a mild breeze. the temp is 87 and the humidity is 67%.

A basic test is to duct tape a few 24"x24" pieces of visqueen to random areas check every day for a couple days... If any moisture builds up, don't apply the epoxy! I've seen all too many failed floor coatings, and they really look like crap. Might be a lil on the humid side too, but I'm not too sure...

I waited about 30 days for the cement to cure fully, like previosly stated, do the moisture test for sure, if any dought, wait a little longer to be on the safe side.

etching is done. did that this morning. it looks dry But I cant do the test with the tape and plastic because the concrete isn't as smooth.
