i am working on a new rescue shelter for small animals and i need to drill and install 3/16" tapcon screws thru an epoxy floor coating in the kennells. can i do this, or will i shatter the coating?

let's all try to evolve a little each day.

together, we can make a world.

yup
 
use a mosanary bit for the size you need. The coating is not like glass, it will just drill away. If you are concerned, put a little water down like a cupfull as you drill, to cool the bit.
Have fun.:)

Is this a volunteer effort or paid contract? I know, off-topic, off-topic, but I always enjoy to hear about volunteer work! :hide:

I wondered about that as well. Seems like a very good community work if it's a volunteer job... :clap:
