Use etch-n-clean (acid wash) to open the pores of the substrate as well as remove oil and other unwanted contaminants to provide maximum adhesion resulting in a sandpaper like finish.
Application of Base Coat
Mix both components of the basecoat epoxy together thoroughly and begin “cutting in” the outside parameter. Begin rolling the epoxy basecoat in six by six foot sections starting in the further most corner of the room.
Application of Color Chips
Apply by tossing a pinch-full upward toward the ceiling allowing them to float down into the wet basecoat (We recommend “basketball-shooter” style dispersion). By using the pinching method you will avoid clumping and keep the dispersion even. Be sure to have enough chips for desired broadcast.
Application of Protective Topcoat
Before applying, wait overnight for the basecoat the efficiently cure. Mix part A & B together of the topcoat. Roll one even coat to entire surface. Topcoat may appear milky white but will dry crystal clear. Your floor will be ready for light traffic in as little as 16 hours, heavy traffic 36 hours.
Optional Surface Preparation
The ideal method for concrete prep whether it’s bare, new or previously coated concrete would be to use a floor grinder. Or if you’re coating concrete that has been sealed with a sealer, it is necessary to use a floor grinder to prepare the concrete. Using the grinder will open up the pores of the concrete to allow the epoxy to sink in, therefore achieving maximum adhesion.
