Floors must be sound and free of any contaminants.
Floors to be shot blasted to a heavy aggregate look to open up pores to accept primer.
All joints/seams, gutter or drain edges will be keyed out before floor is shot blasted.
Floor to be vacuumed and readied for primer.
Moisture cured primer to be applied by 3/8 nap roller at a rate of coverage of 250-275 sq ft per gallon, using 5 gallon kits of primer pailed off at a 4 to 1 ratio by weight if kits are broken into smaller needed batches.
After primer tacks over the first layer may be applied.
First layer is applied by pouring blended resin onto floor and spreading with a 24” squeegee and sanded with #16 silica sand to refusal. First layer to set for 30-45 minutes to cure and set for sweeping.
Second layer is applied in the same manner as the first layer.
Third layer is applied like the second layer using #16 grit silica and pigment color is blended into resin component for desired color of floor.
Fourth layer/top coat is pigmented and applied by 24” squeegees pulling the liquid resin over the sand to even out resin and prevent puddling as well as give a very even non-slip texture. Aluminum oxide grit or #16 grit silica will be broadcast according to desired non-slip of customer.
