Install Process

Our Install Process

  1. All items must be moved out of the garage or area where epoxy is being applied (if any are present.)
  2. Muriatic Acid is used to remove any oil or other materials that would prevent the epoxy from setting to the floor.
  3. Floor is neutralized and flushed clear of any degreaser or acid wash.
  4. Floor is then inspected for any cracks or holes and filled with a concrete filler if present.
  5. Perimeter is taped off.
  6. Concrete primer is now applied to the entire surface of the floor.
  7. After primer is completely dry, floor is then blown free of any dust or dirt and the epoxy is now ready to be applied.

Our Install process Days 2 & 3

Day 2:

  1. Base coat of 100% solids epoxy (thickest and most durable epoxy) is laid down then decorative chips are thrown at about 70% coverage.
  2. Epoxy is then given over night to dry into its semi-gloss finish.

Day 3:

  1. Excess chips are blown off and collected.
  2. Then a final top coat of poly-urethane is applied to add a longer lasting high-gloss finish.
  3. Floor is able to be walked in 24 hours but no vehicle traffic for 7 days which is the complete cure time for 100% solids epoxy.
  4. Tape is pulled, and job is complete!
