Floor Coatings and Sealers protecting concrete floors found in

Garage coatings are usually made up of a polymer product which
bonds to a cement floor and dries to a ceramic-like finish. The
polymer consists of a two-component liquid emulsion which, when
mixed, is used as a sealant or protective finish.
lends itself perfectly to use as a garage floor coating.
Garage coatings are becoming more popular as homeowners are
constantly looking for ways to improve their home for both
aesthetic and financial benefits.
Because garages are being
re-purposed as workshops, play areas, craft rooms and home
offices, more homeowners are finishing their garage floors.
Garage coatings resist oil, dirt, water and grease, which
makes them perfect for alternate use in laundry rooms,
basements, work shops and porches.
plain old gray doesn't match your garage's "decor," there are
many base colors and add-ons available. Color chips or quartz
aggregates may be added to garage coatings for a speckled or
granite effect, and stickers or decals can jazz up the floor.
Finishes include black marble for the refined garage, a
"Harley" combination for the motorcycle aficionado, gold or
silver sparkles for a flashy look, and earth tones for the
more neutral garage.
Why choose us?
Garage coatings are a practical way not only to beautify your
garage, but also to protect the concrete floor against
weathering, cracking, oil, chemicals and moisture.
products claim that garage coatings are actually stronger than
concrete, thereby extending the life of your garage floor.
Coating your garage floor can be normally completed in a few
days. First (the most important step by far), the garage floor
must be degreased, cleaned and etched, or roughed up.
allows the epoxy to bond with the concrete. Patching holes or
cracks is an optional next step.
Depending on the finish you want, you may begin and end with
the base coat.
If you choose a more decorative finish, color
chips may be added, followed with either one or two topcoats.
The result: a tough, yet beautiful finish to your otherwise
boring and utilitarian garage floor.

degreased. We then prepare the concrete for the primer
application, which is the most important.

BELOW IS AN APPLICATION TIP.
WE USE VERSATILE PRODUCTS, ONLY. FOR A VERY GOOD REASON. BEEN USING THEM FOR OVER 15 YEARS. A REAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VERSATILE PRODUCTS AND THE REST OF THEM.
When It Is Hot
Epoxy floor coatings are heat sensitive and will react faster at higher temperatures. Here are a few things to try if you know that you will be applying the epoxy flooring in summer-like conditions.
Prepare the surface ahead of time. This includes grinding, patching, and masking off areas.
Keep the epoxy in a relatively cool place before using. Not in the refrigerator. Not in the sun. A lower temperature will prevent the epoxy from kicking off too quickly. Apply the coating earlier in the morning when the temperatures are not as hot. This allows for more working time, and the heat in the afternoon will assist with a faster cure once rolled out.
Pour the epoxy coating out into ribbons or strips. Increasing the surface area of the epoxy will prevent heat buildup from the reaction of the curing process. Do NOT use a paint tray. Mix small quantities at a time. This is especially important when working alone. Epoxy coatings are a reaction-based formula and will start to react once mixed.
Adding a specified retarder to help slow the dry time can help. Make sure not to add too much as it could affect the product quality.
When It Is Cold
Epoxy floor systems have the ability to dry in a wide range of temperatures, but colder weather is not an epoxy’s friend. Colder conditions reduce the reaction speed and prolong the dry time.
Be prepared to stay off the floor for longer periods of time. The coating may take longer to dry so have a plan set in case you cannot have access to the coated area for a few days. Use accelerators packs. These work by assisting in the reaction of the epoxy and the hardener. Be careful with the amount of accelerators used and which kind, as one accelerator may not be suitable for a different epoxy system.
Turn up the temperature. Try to have some heat flow to the area that you want coated. Portable heater units work well for this. The key to remember is that the floor temperature will have strong affects on how the coating dries.
Keep the heat spread evenly. Do NOT point a blow-dryer or heat gun directly at the epoxy floor coating because doing this could cause a premature accelerated reaction before the air release and leveling agents are able to work properly.
Store the product, if possible, at approximately 75 degrees. This allows the product to work in a more normal manner.
