How Do You Apply SureCrete Dura-Kote Garage Floor System with Epoxy Floor Flake Chips
Just follow these simple instructions to put a new Epoxy Flake System down:
- Any surface that is about to be sealed needs to be completely cured, clean and free of all contaminants, and fully profiled and etched. Moisture should also be limited as all Dura-Kote Flakes systems utilize non-vapor-permeable sealers.
- Make sure that temperatures will remain between 50 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit and a relative humidity below 75% and there will be no precipitation in the applied areas for a 12 hour period following application.
- Based on the color chips and design selected from the Epoxy Flakes Color Chart, apply the pigmented binder coating of your choice, either Pigmented Epoxy 100, Pigmented epoxy WB or Pigmented PFC-180 (see specific products for more detailed instructions of application).
- Roll out your binder garage floor epoxy just like you would floor paint, while still wet, broadcast the Dura-Kote Epoxy Flakes onto the surface at your desired delivery rate and design pattern.
- Allow the floor to dry and cure sufficiently, usually 8-10 hours, depending on temperature.
- Scrape floor vigorously to remove excess Dura-Kote Flakes, then use a push broom to clean up and residual flakes on the surface.
- At this point, a finish coat may be applied. We suggest the use of a Polyurethane or Polyaspartic.
- 16-30 hours after second coat is applied, the surface is ready for light use, and is cured after 5-14 days depending on environmental conditions.
