Surface Preparation

  • Prep your Concrete Floor Before Applying a Coating

    In this video we will cover the different ways to prepare your concrete floor prior to applying a patch, coating or sealer. Proper preparation will ensure longevity and durability. Use Steel Shot Blasting or Diamond Grinding to remove existing coatings, polymer overlays and deposits. An alternative option to prep your floors is to utilize either Bull Dozer (a sulfuric acid mixture) or Tri-Prep (an organic chemical etching process) to etch your floor. Once your floor has been prepped apply Tri-Oil Stop, a primer used to seal and lock contaminates in and prevent de-lamination of epoxy coatings.
