Learn how to prep concrete floors before applying coatings.
Learn the different techniques to prep concrete floors 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 for prepping 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.
