The process begins with surface prep. It’s always the key to a successful floor installation. This old floor has been used for many different businesses over the years. We started with a deep grind using a 32” machine that weighs more than 1500lbs. The combination of weight and the correct diamond tooling insures a nice deep grind to fully remove all surface contaminants.
We also ran a shotblaster over the rougher areas to insure a clean floor down in 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 back roll before we broadcast the flake. This client chose a grey 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 the two topcoats of polyaspartic.
The final product is a gorgeous showroom finish that is extremely chemical and abrasion resistant. This floor will be home to an extensive car collection.
