We show it to you here on our forklift parking spot and porch area at our store. We coated it originally 6 years ago.
We gave it a recoat because we wanted to do a bit more training and it was getting dirty and with a few unfortunate paint spills we had happen. (Yes we spill paint too!)
Although the surface was still sound and had no bare patches, it needed a good sand and wash down. The product is self priming, but over previously painted surfaces you need to sand it like Muz did here.
We used a pole sander which was adequate for this job. Some previously painted areas should have an electric sander or a diamond grinder to etch up the surface eg a high gloss or a solvent based epoxy...yes you can go over other two pack products (ask us in store about your project) Or if it’s on new concrete you need to acid etch the surface.
Preparation is super important for good adhesion. Then once it’s dry apply the first coat using a tech cover and cut in with the brush. We applied one coat on Day 1 and then our second coat on Day 2. You can walk on in 4-6 hours and drive on once it’s fully cured (7 days..longer in winter).
You can do two coats in one day in warmer conditions. See data info in store and ask our advice.
Mixing must be done with a drill mixer. NO HAND STIRRING. This is vital and must be done to make sure both parts are mixed to the specifications.
