EPOXY FLOORING CAPE TOWN – GUIDELINES FOR APPLICATION – NEW & EXISTING FLOORS

A. Surface Preparation
This is essentially the most important phase of the epoxy floor coating project. A well planned surface preparation will help secure a good bonding between the substrate and the coating system. Good surface preparation will remove laitance, curing compounds, contamination and give the surface profile. Vacuum clean the area before paint application starts.

Tip for you: Pour some water on the floor after surface preparation. If the water is absorbed, then it is ready for the Epoxy Sealer.

B. Surface Properties
New Concrete Floors – Maximum moisture content for coating concrete floors is 4%. The concrete normally needs 4 weeks to cure. All contamination on the surface will affect the bonding between the concrete and the floor coating system and have to be removed.
Old Uncoated Concrete Floors – Before working on an old, uncoated concrete you should check for contamination such as oil, grease and chemicals. Remove any contamination with a chemical degreaser

Tip for you: All paint products need time to cure. To prevent any damages on the paint surface, avoid any stress on the surface.

C: Tools For Floor Coating
To successfully carry out the application of Epoxy Coatings, it is necessary to use high quality equipment
that is designed for this particular purpose.

• Epoxy Coating for sealing the concrete surface
• Electrical mixer
• Paint brush for corners
• Roller – Remove loose fibre from the roller with the use of a masking tape.
