HOW TO MIX EPOXY PAINT Mixing epoxy is one of the most important tasks in applying any floor coating. Unless you are using a 1-part system where there is no mixing required you must mix your epoxy to start the chemical reaction that initiates the hardening process. Epoxy as its core is simply an epoxy resin and hardener or catalyst. We are going to go over some general guidelines to follow when mixing your epoxy. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS Before you even open your cans or boxes read the instructions at least 2x to get a good understanding of how the paint should be mixed. If you are using a multi layered system make sure to separate each layer and even place your own labels on them as to not get them mixed up we suggest using stickers or a sharpie to draw of them. SET UP AREA Pick a place that you can use as your setup and breakdown area. Ideally you will want to have this outside of the area you are coating but if the project is indoors and does not allow this then choose a spot nearest to the door exit so you can work your way out. Lay down both a plastic sheet and red rosin paper or cardboard on top to catch any spills that might happen when mixing. USE MIXING CUPS TO POUR YOUR PAINT While this does add another step to the process it’s important to ensure you are mixing the appropriate amounts of epoxy to hardener. Follow the mixing ratio instructions. Once you have poured the appropriate amounts into the cups you can pour both of the cups into a larger bucket plastic or metal. Remember to not mix up too much epoxy at a time and mix in small batches MIXING THE EPOXY We have found that mixing with a metal mixer attached to a power drill works best for ensuring that all your paint has been evenly mixed up. If you do not have one then a mixing stick will work fine but make sure to mix extra well. Any unmixed paint will not cure properly when applied and can lead to floor failure down the road. ADDING NON-SKID ADDITIVE Depending on the type of system you are using some non-skid additives call for it to be mixed directly into the paint as opposed to being thrown onto the floor. If you are using a non-skid mixing additive you need to remember that most additives are heavy and will want to sink to the bottom of the bucket. If you leave it unmixed for too long your non-skid might end up unevenly distributed throughout the floor.
