The industrial floor finish process begins with surface prep. It’s always the key to a successful floor installation. The old floor in the video has been used for many different businesses over the years, and once complete will be home to an extensive car collection.
The process began with a deep grind using a 32” machine that weighs more than 1500 lbs. The combination of weight and the correct diamond tooling ensures a deep grind to fully remove all surface contaminants. We also ran a shot-blaster over the rougher areas to ensure a clean floor down into any divots and depressions.
Once a good clean floor is achieved, we skim the floor out with a floor patching material to fill and smooth the depressions and other deficiencies prior to coating. Once that has dried, a light grind over the patch and we are ready to begin the coating process.
Our base coat of epoxy goes down nice and even with a squeegee and backroll before we broadcast the flake. This client chose a gray and white mix with 7% silver micah for a unique look that will have a gorgeous finish.
Once the base coat has cured, we remove the excess flake, scrape it down and sand it before the applying two topcoats of polyaspartic.
The final product is a spectacular showroom finish that is extremely chemical and abrasion resistant and will last for years to come.
