Our Process

    EPOXY 101

           Our process is quite different from the competition.  And for the better.  Please read the following to obtain a
    clear understanding of the way we install compared to the "get rich quick"  guys.

           First we diamond grind the entire floor with 30 grit diamond pads.  This opens up the pours of the concrete and allows the
    epoxy to soak in creating a deep penetrating bond that will never peel.  Our competitors only grind "the critical areas" where
    your tires drive. They do this to save time.   This leaves the rest of the floor unprepared and will surely peel long after they
    have went out of business.  We prep the entire floor as any competent company would.  Chemical etching is never
    recommended, the use of Muriatic Acid in your garage is toxic to everything around it.  It eats the paint off the walls, ruins
    baseboards, runs out across the driveway eating the surface, and ends up running into flowerbed's and eventually down the
    street.  Some company even do this twice, all to save a few minutes.  It is much better to diamond grind and is what all epoxy
    manufacturers recommend.  We then fill any cracks and holes with a 2-part sanded epoxy crack filler made for especially for
    cracks in concrete.

           Second we get ready to place the epoxy. We use Arizona Polymers E550 epoxy.  This commercial grade solvent based
    epoxy is 2-part mix, and 100% solids.  This is the exact same epoxy we use in airplane hangars, commercial warehouses,
    commercial kitchens, and used in the service bay of Southpont Dodge,  E550 is widely known as the best and most durable.  It is
    also the most expensive and is designed to last 25+ years.
           
           To place the epoxy we first mix it for 2 minutes, then pour it directly onto the floor and spread it with 18" wide special epoxy
    rollers.  We roll it deep into the floor, back and fourth in several directions to ensure penetration.  
           
           Next we walk out onto the floor with spiked shoes and broadcast vinyl color chips into the wet epoxy.  This can be just a
    few flakes for color, or can be a full 100% broadcast.  A full broadcast floor will have a final profile which is less slippery than a
    slick finish with a few chips, and full broadcast will hide dirt better.  When you bring your car in from the road the tires will leave
    tracks across a slick color floor that a few sprinkled chips will not hide. A full broadcast will always look clean.  And most
    importantly is slip resistance;  when you drive in from the rain you can slip easily on a slick finish.  We have and do install solid
    color floors if requested, and can install a sand grip clear topcoat if you decide later it is too slippery.

           The Topcoat.  It is very necessary to apply a clear epoxy topcoat.  This is a 2-part, 100% solids solvent epoxy that will
    chemically bond to the first coat.  This is applied the second day.   We use Arizona Polymers P-100 2 part epoxy Polyurethane
    and is designed to complete our process.  P-100 is impact/scratch resistant and fuel/oil proof.  It also protects the color chips,
    whether a few sprinkled on chips or a full broadcast.  Unprotected chips will fade, soften and the color will run.  

           We install a topcoat, and the entire process from start to finish will take two days.  On the third day at noon, you can walk on
    your new garage floor, and know it was done right,  and that it will last a lifetime.

           1st day--------- Prep floor and apply 1st coat epoxy with chips.
           2nd day ------- Clear topcoat applied.
           3rd day -------- Walk on your floor.

IMPORTANT!
Make sure the contractor you choose uses P100
polyurethane which is designed as a topcoat over
chips and designed to last 25+ years, and not E400,
which is designed to be a base coat on clear
applications, E400 is turning yellow after 6 months.
