How to apply epoxy floor paint - A 7 step guide

  1. 1. How to Apply Epoxy Floor Paint A Step by Step Guide
  2. 2. This guide is a summary of the steps required to coat a floor with epoxy floor paints. The step by step guide describes the necessary procedure for applying one coat of primer and two coats of epoxy paint (roller applied) Such floors are suitable for light and medium wear and tear, perfect for garages and storage rooms.
  3. 3. Let’s get started!
  4. 4. 1. Prepare the Surface
  5. 5. 1. Prepare the Surface
  6. 6. Preparation of the substrate is necessary in order to ensure adhesion between the epoxy product and the substrate. Suitable methods are sanding or diamond- grinding. Any surfaces that have been contaminated with oils may also require chemical cleaning. 1. Prepare the Surface
  7. 7. 2. Clean the Floor
  8. 8. 2. Clean the floor
  9. 9. Improper cleaning can lead to poor bonding of the coat to the concrete substrate Also various particles of dust and dirt may end up being trapped within the coat thus leaving an ugly looking surface with spots 2. Clean the floor
  10. 10. Use an industrial vacuum that picks up even small dust particles. The floor must be cleaned of all dusts and residues before starting to prime. The less dust on the surface the less primer you will need. 2. Clean the floor
  11. 11. 3. Prime the floor
  12. 12. 3. Prime the floor
  13. 13. Prime the floor with a suitable epoxy primer. Priming will give your floor a longer life and better adhesion to the substrate. Priming will seal the substrate thus reducing the risks of bubbles and gases. 3. Prime the floor
  14. 14. 4. Filling and grouting
  15. 15. 4. Filling and Grouting
  16. 16. Fill all cracks, holes etc with epoxy grout. (This step can also take place before priming if you prefer) For thin cracks it may be necessary to slice them with a diamond cutter before filling in order to improve the anchoring of the grout. 4. Filling and Grouting
  17. 17. 5. Applying the first coat
  18. 18. Mixing of the A and B components 5. Applying the first coat
  19. 19. Pay special attention to the mixing of the two components. Use an electrical mixer and mix the components for at least for two minutes. Don’t skimp on the mixing! This step is very important. Poor mixing will lead to a tacky floor. 5. Applying the first coat
  20. 20. Apply the product with a roller. Use a good quality roller, as poor quality rollers may start to shed. You should be able to re-coat after 24 hours. 5. Applying the first coat
  21. 21. 6. Applying the 2nd final coat
  22. 22. After the 1st coat has cured you may notice various problems that have appeared on the surface such as cracks, holes etc. Make sure that these are sealed-filled before starting the next coat. You may also need to sand some uneven surfaces that appeared after the first coat. If necessary wait an extra dry for the grout to dry before re-coating. 6. Applying the 2nd final coat
  23. 23. When applying the 2nd coat remember to follow the same mixing instructions as for 1st coat. Mix the product properly, and use a proper high quality roller 6. Applying the 2nd final coat
  24. 24. 6. Applying the 2nd final coat This is how a completed two- coat epoxy floor should look like
