Presentation Transcript

slide 1:

The absolute first step before applying your epoxy coating is to prep your floor. It is essential that you clean your floor thoroughly. If you’re working on a concrete base fill in any cracks or patch areas that need care before you start to clean. Once the damages if any have been repaired it’s time to clean. Be sure to catch any areas you might overlook while preparing your epoxy coat. Oil spots will need to be removed and the floor will need to be degreased. Your floor is cleaned properly and you will want to make sure you vacuum thoroughly to rid of any remaining dust and debris. The biggest problem you will encounter when applying your epoxy coating is to make sure the moisture and humidity are in the right conditions. Conducting a moisture test on your concrete base is a reliable way to make sure the epoxy flooring will be applied properly. This can be done cheaply and effectively by taping shut a plastic sheet to your floor. After a day or so you’ll notice if moisture has appeared or gathered underneath the plastic surface. If it has you will need to apply a moisture blocking sealer. This is due to the fact that epoxy can be impossible to work with in high moisture conditions and will not guarantee a sealed floored. If the floor is not sealed properly then epoxy may not adhere causing the floor to bubble. METHODS There are three main methods for preparing your floor for epoxy work so take your pick on which one will best suit your needs.

The first is acid etching. This technique is the most D.I.Y. option as other techniques require machinery or skill and is best used for concrete bases. First you need to apply the acid solution to your floor. Once it is spread out evenly use a scrubber a stiff bristle broom or a similar tool to work the acid solution. Once that it’s done let the acid sit for up to 10 minutes this will allow the process to take effect. Next you have to remove the spent acid.
