The Layers of Epoxy & Polyurea Floors
Floor coatings consist of 3 layers of coatings, starting with a concrete base (pictured as the gray slab in the diagram).
After floor prep, which include using a grinder on the floor and cleaning of the surface, a tinted base coat is applied on top of the concrete. Before the base coat dries, a layer of decorative chips are evenly spread across the surface and left to set for a few hours. Once dry, any excess chips are scraped off the surface and cleaned.
The last layer is a clear top coat that is applied on top of the chip layer. The top coat gives added protection, seals chips in place, and gives a high gloss shine to the floor.
Epoxy vs Polyurea Floors
There are options when it comes to floor coatings, most commercial applications we recommend our customers to strongly consider Polyurea for its greater durability, quick cure time, and warranty. However, in residential applications like garage floors, sometimes epoxy is a more cost effective solution that will work for lighter residential use cases.
The Floor Install Process
Installing a floor coating is a multi-step process. Below outlines each step involved and gives an idea for what to expect when having a floor installed.
Set Up Workstation
The crew will arrive and set up a workstation with floor protection. This area will be used to set up products and store equipment during the project.
Concrete Grind & Prep
The floors are ground using a diamond floor grinder. This is a dry grinder and does not require water or moisture.
Crack & Pit Repair
Any cracks or imperfections are patched and repaired to ensure an even and smooth surface.
Before application of the basecoat the floor is cleaned to remove any dust or debris.
A tinted polyurea basecoat is applied to the prepped concrete, once mixed the basecoat needs to be applied quickly.
Chips are applied evenly across the basecoat. Once spread they are left for a few hours to dry.
Scrape Excess Chips
Once dry, the crew returns to scrape up any excess chip off the top of the floor, leaving a strongly bonded layer of chips on the basecoat.
Vacuum Entire Floor
The scraped up chips are removed with another round of cleaning and vacuuming.
The last step is to apply a clearcoat, the edges are hand painted in and the rest of the floors are spread evenly with a squeegee.
Epoxy Finishes and Coatings
Tired of cleaning up those tough oil spills on the floor of your garage? As many homeowners know, it’s incredibly difficult to get oil stains out of concrete. Say goodbye to spills that stain your concrete with an epoxy floor.
Epoxy coatings are available in a range of colors. After the epoxy color coating is applied, we can add color chips to customize your flooring even more. The epoxy flooring is then finished off with a topcoat of specialized paint which gives your floor extra long-lasting protection.
