The Process

Step 1: Grinding the Concrete Surface

We start by thoroughly cleaning the concrete surface to remove any dirt, grime, or imperfections. This includes sweeping, vacuuming, and pressure washing the area if needed. We also repair any existing cracks or stains to ensure a smooth surface. We complete the process by using a grinder with diamond pads on it to create a good mechanical bond.

For concrete floors with prior sealing, we make sure to remove any leftover sealant before applying the new polyaspartic floor coating.


Step 2: Applying Base Coatings 

After the cleaning process, we apply the polyurea or epoxy base coatings using specialized squeegees for even coverage. 

Step 3: Incorporating Decorative Flakes

To enhance the appearance and texture of your floor, we incorporate decorative flakes into the polyaspartic coating. These flakes add depth and style to the surface. We apply them evenly onto the wet surface and ensure they're spread out uniformly with a hand trowel or similar tool.

Once the flakes are applied, we allow them to dry before moving on to the next step.

Step 4: Applying Protective Polyaspartic Topcoat

After allowing the flakes to dry, we apply a protective topcoat to safeguard the surface against scuffs, scratches, and other damage. We begin by removing any dust or debris from the floor and then apply a thin layer of polyaspartic topcoat using brushes or rollers. It's crucial to apply overlapping strokes to ensure a seamless finish without gaps or ridges.

We let the topcoat dry thoroughly before considering additional layers for added protection.


Step 5: Final Touches

Once the polyaspartic floor coating is applied, we pay attention to the finer details to ensure a flawless finish. We address any drips or spills using brushes and water and then do a final sweep with a slightly damp microfiber cloth to remove any remaining dust particles. This ensures the surface looks as smooth and polished as possible.

Step 6: Curing the Polyaspartic Floor Coating

The final step is to allow the polyaspartic floor coating to cure properly. This process can take anywhere from 24 hours to 7 days, depending on factors such as temperature and humidity levels. After applying the coating, we typically recommend a curing period of 18-24 hours before allowing foot traffic on the floor.

While the floor may be usable once fully cured, we advise waiting at least 48 hours before subjecting it to heavy usage to ensure optimal performance and durability.
