Whether you're doing 500 square feet or 50,000 square feet the prep and application process is the same. For very large floors you most likely should use an industrial diamond grinder with vac attachment. For all other floors acid etching or grinding with the Floor Prep Machine you can rent from Home Depot is fine. See The How To Prep & Paint Your Floor Page You can also check out a short video on prep & application located in the Video Library for all the details you need.
Do I have to etch new concrete?
Yes, in fact you need to etch it twice to make sure you burn out all the curing residues and then neutralize with the provided neutralizing powder. It's very important to follow this procedure to get permanent adhesion. You can diamond grind the floor with the Floor Prep machine also which eliminates the need to acid etch. Just be sure all the dust is off the floor before you begin coating.
Isthe Commercial Floor Epoxy slippery?
All our epoxy floor kits come with nonslip additive that is mixed into the final topcoat to provide a slip resistant finish. In fact we use a high tech additive that is micro tubular aluminum that acts like rebar in the coating giving it added durability and slip resistance.
Can I fill in the expansion-contraction saw cuts that were installed in my slab?
Yes you can but we don't recommend it unless your floor is at least 5 years or older. If you fill them in too soon you run the risk of having a crack show up in your brand new high gloss epoxy floor. We always leave the control joints unfilled once you've epoxied the floor the control joints add dimension to the floor making them look like giant slabs of porcelain or granite if you use color flakes.
How much does commercial floor epoxy cost?
For franchise company and contractor installed floors the average costs are between $6.00-9.00 per square foot. For DIY floors you can get it done for $1.50 - $2.00 per square foot and using a better quality product. It pays to do it yourself and is very easy and straight forward to install.
How long will your epoxy floor coatings last?
although that's like trying to answer how long will a car last type of question. Since it depends on the amount of traffic and type of traffic on the floor much. You can count on your ArmorGarage floor lasting and looking good for 15-20 years as opposed to 2-3 years for a typical off the shelf epoxy coating. ArmorGarage is the only garage epoxy guarantee against any effects of wear for 5 years. This means your floor still looks brand new after 5 years and most likely 10-15 years. While off the shelf epoxies wear out in 2-3 years and will have to be diamond grinded off and completely redone. While our floor somewhere between 15 and years will only require a couple of hours work to lightly scuff up the topcoat and simply rolling on a new topcoat to bring the floor right back to new.
Why are ArmorGarage epoxy floors better?
ArmorGarage floor epoxy is not water based, they are pure military grade epoxies made with 100% made in America materials. They are 10 times thicker and have a much harder finish. Our military grade topcoat has an industry low abrasion loss rating of only 8mgs(the lower the number the better) as opposed to other typical epoxy coating systems that have ratings of 30 mgs and higher. That's a tremendous difference. Our coatings are hot tire proof, mold & mildew proof, road salt proof, waterproof and chemical and acid proof. In short there is no comparison to our epoxy coatings with any other brand.
How long does it take to install your epoxy flooring?
The actual amount of labor hours is about 6-8 hours total. In total time from start to finish is 2 or 3 days due to dry times in between coats and letting the floor dry if you acid etch it. Grinding will save you a day or two in drying time. Once you apply the final topcoat you can put all your stuff back on the floor in about 5-6 hours and full forklift duty service in 2 days.
Does your epoxy have a strong odor?
Our commercial epoxy has an odor that is usally not an issue. If doing a large floor where you will be laying down a lot of material all at once we would recommend a simple paint respirator if you're sensitive to odors. The Low VOC version has a lower odor.
Is the commercial epoxy floor system USDA approved?
Yes, it is approved for use in all food prep and processing areas. When using in food production areas we recommend installing a cove base around the perimeter of the floor to form a seamless transition from floor to wall. This creates a waterproof tub like effect that makes washdowns much easier and sanitary. ArmorGarage II commercial epoxy is waterproof, mold & mildew proof and resistant to many chemicals and acids making it ideal for caustic washdowns.
For the Fast Dry version you will receive primer with a 4:1 mix ratio and pigment packs. Mix the pigment into the large can until color is uniform, then mix approximately 1 gal of primer for each person rolling. Be sure to use measuring containers to maintain the proper mix ratio when using less than full cans. Do not mix more than you can apply in 15 minutes when using the fast dry version. Allow 3-4 hrs for primer to dry hard to the touch prior to applying topcoat.
