Concrete Coating

A concrete coating is a durable concrete floor covering that coats the surface of the concrete with a strong and durable film. The most common types of concrete coatings are epoxies, urethanes or polyaspartics. These coatings are able to protect against deicing salts and heavy abrasions. Oil and grease will not damage the floor or the coating whatsoever and concrete dusting will be eliminated. Concrete floor coatings will leave a gloss finish and they available clear or colored.

Epoxy 325

Oil Repellent
Salt Repellent
Chemical Resistant
Water-Based
Two-component

Best used as a primer before using the Urethane 645 top coat. This durable epoxy floor coating repels chemicals, stops dusting and resists abrasions in a clear or colored semi-gloss finish

The Epoxy 325 is the first step in an epoxy floor coating system. This primer is applied after the concrete has been etched or grind-ed. Before applying an epoxy floor coating it is best to scarify and rough up the surface of the concrete in order for the coating to properly bond and adhere. This can be achieved by acid etching and neutralizing the concrete or by mechanically grinding the concrete with a floor grinder.

Once the surface has been properly prepped the Epoxy 325 can then be applied with an epoxy glide roller. The Epoxy 325 is available in a two component kit. Each kit contains a Part A and a Part B. Part A and Part B are mixed together with a drill or jiffy mixer. Once Part A and Part B are mixed the Epoxy 325 must be applied within 1 hour. About 7-10 hours after applying the Epoxy 325, the Urethane 645 can then be applied as a top coat.

The Epoxy 325 is available in clear or colored. If you are using a colored epoxy primer you are going to want to use the same color top coat. Paint chips (for decoration) or aluminum oxide (for slip resistance) can be cast into the wet epoxy and then top coated with the Urethane 645.

The combination of the Epoxy 325 primer and Urethane 645 top coat are excellent at stopping dusting, repelling oils, greases, chemicals and acids; however, they can only be used on indoor concrete floors.

If there is moisture in the concrete prior to application first use the Vapor-Tek 440.

The Micro-Degreaser 1100 can be used to degrease and remove soils and stains prior to using the Epoxy 325.

The Hydro-Etch 1000 can be used to etch the concrete prior to applying the Epoxy 325.

Urethane 645

Oil Repellent
Chemical Resistant
Solvent-Based
Two-component

Best used as a top coat after using the Epoxy 325 primer. This durable urethane floor coating repels chemicals, stops chemicals and resists abrasions in a clear or colored high-gloss finish

The Urethane 645 is typically applied about 7-10 hours after applying the Epoxy 325. If more than 48 hours have elapsed since the Epoxy 325 primer has been applied it is best to lightly sand the surface of the Epoxy 325 to maximize the bond and adhesion of the Urethane 645.

The Urethane 645 is also available clear or colored and in a two component kit. Each kit contains a Part A and a Part B. Part A and Part B are mixed together with a drill or jiffy mixer. Once Part A and Part B are mixed the Urethane 645 must be applied within 2 hours.

One coat of the Urethane 645 is best applied with an epoxy glide roller. The Urethane 645 leaves a high gloss finish and is extremely easy to clean. However, it can also be slippery when wet. If maximum traction is desired 46 Grit Aluminum Oxide can be cast into the wet Epoxy 325 and then coated with the Urethane 645. If lesser traction is desired a slip resistant additive can be mixed into a kit of Urethane 645.

The combination of the Epoxy 325 primer and Urethane 645 top coat are excellent at stopping dusting, repelling oils, greases, chemicals and acids; however, they can only be used on indoor concrete floors.

Because of VOC restrictions in the State of California, the Urethane 645 cannot be used. A California compliant version of the Urethane is available for use in California.
