Cement is fantastic, however, it may be easily damaged. Applying an epoxy coating can help keep the concrete safe. Expert in epoxy coatings Doug Fasching joins the popular This Old House YouTube channel to discuss how to apply an epoxy coat to protect your garage floor.
The first step is to clean your floor by using a degreaser. It is necessary to use protective equipment when you apply an acid scrubber. Utilize a watering can which can only be used as a mixer to mix the acid with water. The watering container made of metal cannot be used, since it reacts badly to the acid. Make use of a mop for scrubbing the acid off the floor, and then wash it off with water that is clean. Some particles remain on the floor’s surface and the floor will require sweeping.
When your flooring is dried after drying, you are able to apply epoxy to the floor. The epoxy is divided into two pieces that must be combined. It should be allowed to rest for at least 30 minutes. Now it’s ready to use. Mix only the contents of one bottle at a moment as the epoxy has the ability to dry within 2 1/2 hours. Paint the epoxy in the same way you normally paint. It is recommended to apply at least two coats. Let the first coat dry overnight before applying the second coat. uezk1wzvlv.
