Epoxy Flooring Process
Experts at Designer-Crete follow a thorough process when laying epoxy floors.
Here is a breakdown of the process:
The concrete surface is prepared by smoothening it using a hand grinder or scraper and any imperfections and cracks are filled in. The surface is vacuumed and cleaned to ensure there is no dust present.
The entire floor is sprayed with water and cleaned using a power scrubber and degreaser. Corners are also scrubbed clean and a wet-dry vacuum is used to prepare the floor for treatment.
A mixture of muriatic acid and water is prepared and sprinkled over a small area and scrubbed for around 10 minutes.
The process is repeated over the entire floor, which is then rinsed three times to completely remove the acid. The floor is left to dry overnight.
The solvent or water is mixed with epoxy and the epoxy solution is poured into another bucket to ensure liquids are thoroughly mixed.
Duct tape is applied beneath the door and along the perimeter of the flooring. The borders are lined with epoxy using a brush. The remaining area is then painted with a roller brush.
When the first coat is completely dry, a second coating is applied. The process is completed by applying anti-slip coatings if desired.
