How We Apply Epoxy Coating on Floors
Step 1: Prepare the surface for coating
Armourcrete starts the application process by diamond grinding the entire surface area. The team will clear it of dust, dirt, grime and other substances that can negatively impact the epoxy coating finish.
Step 2: Pour the epoxy mixture onto the surface
Step 3: Spread out and smoothen the coating over the surface
After pouring the coating mixture, the team works on spreading it out across the entire surface. They use a spreader with a roller feature to make sure everything is smooth and prevent bubbles from forming.
Additional optional step: Place designs onto the initial layer of epoxy.
The team will apply your chosen designs, from patterns to your brand name, onto the initial layer of the epoxy coating. A secondary layer will then be poured on top to cover the designs.
Step 4: Pour additional layers of epoxy coating
Step 5: Let the coating cure before cleaning the floor
After pouring and smoothening out the last layer of epoxy coating, the team lets it cure. Once done, they will clean the entire surface to make it shine, so you get the full effect of the epoxy look.
Step 6: Inspect the finished surface
