Upon arrival, we will chase out any cracks with an angle grinder- with a diamond impregnated V-blade-to clean and profile the crevice. The imperfections are then primed and overfilled with an a high strength structural epoxy mixed with cabosil to thicken it.
Our team will unload our generators to provide Power to commercial grade floor grinders, and process the floor with diamond tooling, either hard or soft bond- depending on the density of your existing concrete. Experienced technicians will carefully respond to the reaction the tooling has on your installation. This will remove any surface contaminants or existing coatings. This process also flattens the area where the epoxy overfilled the cracks- for a seamless end product. (Please note: This crack filling scope goes for damage, not expansion joints- we have a few options for dealing with expansion joints: Some people choose to do the same process as our crack treatment for the expansion joints. Another option is to fill them after the floor installation with a matching flexible caulking. A lot of people opt to leave them open. Please let me know what you decide.)
We will mill into the concrete with diamonds. Our team will then de-dust and further prep the floor with a shot blaster to achieve a proper CSP for the desired coating.
All our equipment is dust free with our HEPA dust containment equipment. When our Artisans are satisfied with the prep, we will mask off and coat the ‘cove’ area so we have nice clean lines on those vertical surfaces. (if applicable)
After the Cove is dry, will clean the floor again and apply moisture Vapor Barrier that holds back 25 pounds of vapor per square foot. The next day, we will use a base coat of a100% epoxy hybrid specifically formulated for our systems. From there your system will follow a pre determined path toward your desired installation. For example: a typical garage floor will receive a broadcast of the chosen vinyl flake from Torginol to full rejection. After the coating is cured, we will scrape and pick up the leftover material and apply a non yellowing, industrial grade polyaspartic for the finishing coat. This process will take 2 days. Other more artistic systems take a different direction and can last up to five days.
