EPOXY FLOOR PREPARATION AND INSTALL
Every floor is shot-blasted to create a rough and porous surface allowing the epoxy primer to penetrate deep into the concrete. Not only does the epoxy bond chemically to the concrete but mechanically as well. This is the single most important step in floor preperation.
All hard to reach areas are diamond grinded to expose fresh, clean concrete ensuring a good bond between the epoxy and the concrete. Any cracks or uneven surfaces are grinded smooth to reduce visibility.
Cracks, divots and holes are then patched using the highest quality polymer-modified patching compound.
A two-part 100% solids penetrating epoxy primer is the first layer of epoxy applied. This clear epoxy primer saturates and penetrates deep into the open pores of the concrete creating a powerful mechanical and chemical bond that is guaranteed not to break.
The following day a second layer of 100% solids pigmented epoxy is applied. While the epoxy is still wet, the colored flakes are broadcasted across the floor in excess, to ensure even and consistent coverage. Stem-walls, steps, etc. are also coated and flaked at this time.
The final day the excess flake is removed and the floor is then scraped and sanded smooth before the top coat is applied. The two part chemical and abrasion resistant clear-coat gives the "granite look" floor its durability and shine. The finished floor is resistant against various automobile and household fluids, unaffected by hot tires, u.v. resistant non yellowing and is virtually maintenance free.
