You are probably familiar with the Edison Coatings, Inc. lime-based
restoration mortars (Custom System-45)
<URL:>.  The same company produces a
wide range of other products for masonry repair including
epoxy-based coatings. For example, the product line called
FLEXI-DECK 500 includes heavy duty membranes, sealers, coatings and
linings specifically designed for industrial purposes and are
resistant to traffic abrasion and impact.  Then they have the
products called DECK-TOP 47, 47-RC, which are latex modified
concrete 'resurfacers', for resurfacing scaled concrete floors.

The contact person is Michael Edison, the President of the company
