SpeedCove Product Profile

 (View/Print SpeedCove Technical Specifications PDF)

General Description
SpeedCove Systems are 1-inch, 4-inch, 6-inch and 8-inch high pre-formed impact-resistant cove base moldings made specifically for use with commercial, institutional, industrial, and residential resinous floor coatings. SpeedCove Systems form the correct shape and height around the perimeter of a room to meet health department requirements. When this cove base and floor area is coated it provides a uniform, smooth, seamless, and integral floor-to-wall junction that is waterproof and chemical-proof.

Common Use
Commercial, institutional, and industrial kitchens and bathrooms; food processing and storage; manufacturing facilities; hospitals and veterinarian clinics; pharmaceutical facilities; containment systems; laboratories; animal kennels or testing facilities; or anywhere a seamless sanitary floor with integral cove base is specified or required. For use with both utility and decorative floor finishes such as: epoxies, MMA's, polyurethanes, polyaspartics, polyureas, polyesters, cementitious overlays, and more.

Composition
SpeedCove is made from a polyester resin base with inert additives, cleaned with acetone. All pieces come in a neutral cream color. The mold skin has been removed (both front & back) to create a microporous anchor profile like 220 grit sandpaper to maximize adhesion.

Shelf Life
None
