The wet basement kit is identical to the dry kit but comes with a paintable sealer. This sealer penatrates deep into the concrete slab and forms a high pressure moisture barrier. Paint failure was always a 100% guaranteed event when applied to basement floors that experience water coming up through the slab, until now. This is the only kit we know of that allows basement floors with water problems to be safely sealed and then coated with epoxy paint.
All previous coatings or flooring must be removed entirely. Concrete must be clean and dry prior to application. Stir product in can. Completely saturate floor with sealer at the rate of 1 gallon/200 sq ft, spreading material with stiff bristle shop broom or flat squeegee. allow sealer to stand on floor for 45 minutes then remove excess product, a wet/dry shop-vac works best. Wait 2 Hrs then rinse surface clean with water and squeegee or shop-vac floor dry. After 24 hrs floor is ready for epoxy coating. Apply epoxy same as in dry kit. Problem solved!
NOTE IF YOU HAVE WATER COMING IN FROM ABOVE THE FLOOR YOU DO NOT NEED TO USE THE WET BASEMENT KIT. THIS KIT IS INTENDED FOR FLOORS THAT HAVE WATER COMING UP THROUGH THE SLAB. WATER COMING IN FROM ABOVE THE FLOOR HAS NO EFFECT ON OUR EPOXY AND THE DRY BASEMENT EPOXY KIT CAN BE USED FOR THOSE SITUATIONS.
