The Epoxy Floor Coating Process
Some projects may vary slightly depending on the requirements. But most projects follow a similar project plan. The first phase of the project is floor prep work. The prep phase is very important to the epoxy coating adhering properly. In some cases a detailed cleaning may be all that is needed, however it is often recommended to use a commercial grinder with a few passes at varying grits before applying the epoxy.
An alternative to using a grinding machine is using an acid wash, which can also work well to prep concrete for coatings. The reason for this step is give texture to the concrete which allows the epoxy grooves to settle in and to adhear to. A smooth concrete floor with epoxy on top would likely peel up or fail with time.
After surface prep, some projects have a priming step that adds an initial primer layer to the surface, this is not always required.
