The Epoxy Floor Coating Process

Epoxy garage floor installations are usually 2 day projects, starting with a day of diamond grinding, crack repairs, application of moisture barrier, base coat application, then finally we broadcast the flakes into the base coat. On the 2nd day once the epoxy has hardened we scrape the loose flakes, vacuum, then apply two polyaspartic clear coats including an anti-slip additive to create grip.

Diamond Grinding

Diamond Grinding

The diamond grinding process is essential to create the necessary profile into the concrete for adhesion. This is also necessary to remove previous coatings.

Crack & Pit Repair

Crack & Pit Repair

During the grinding process we will use a hardening crack filler to repair cracks and imperfections to allow of a smooth finish

Moisture Barrier

Moisture Barrier

A moisture barriers is applied to help seal the concrete and increase the strength of the chemical bond in the epoxy base coat

Base Epoxy Coat

Base Epoxy Coat

The base coat of epoxy is applied evenly and at the appropriate film thickness to allow chips to properly bond

Full Chip Broadcast

Full Chip Broadcast

As the polyurea levels we broadcast more than the needed supply of chips into the base coating to ensure full and even coverage and a high build.

Once the polyurea has dried to the proper level we will apply a clear coat of polyaspartic sealer back rolling to achieve a uniform finish. This is followed by a 2nd coat which will include an aluminum-oxide anti-slip additive

This process is important to not only create grip but for the strength that the aluminum oxide additive will create in the clear coat.

More About Epoxy

Epoxy works very differently than conventional garage floor paints. It is not the same kind of product as garage floor paint, and works very differently. Epoxy is a made of a two part coating that gets mixed together, much like an epoxy glue. The two parts of epoxy usually consist of a a resin part and a hardening part.

The two parts when mixed will activate the compound and it will start to cure and harden. It is a far superior coating to paint for flooring projects, the difference is visually apparent in its high gloss, but there are also non visual differences like much stronger durability.

More on Floor Prep for Epoxy Coatings

Diamond grinding is often a necessary preparation step for a successful epoxy floor application. Good prep work is essential for epoxy floor installations, failure to properly prep the floor can result in uneven finishes, cracks, bubbles, or failures in the coating. The below video shows one of our employees prepping a concrete floor with a diamond grinder, a close up is shown so you can see how the grinder creates an even but textured finish to the concrete. The ridges and grooves created by the grinder will serve to help bind the coating to the concrete permanently.
