The pre-tinted base-coat floor epoxy is a 2 component 52% solids, low VOC floor hard coating. It is a durable-colored base layer for both new and old interior concrete floors; a primer coat; and a binder for epoxy flakes. The high loading of the base coat pigment achieves the preferred substrate tint uniformity.
This base coat floor epoxy creates the highest balance of strength, flexibility, and chemical resistance, all in a low odor, low VOC formulation. Unlike most all 100% solids epoxies, it has remarkable properties related to moisture:
Delivered in this kit are more flake product than is needed. You’ll have all you need for a 100% broadcast flake coverage.
Besides the obvious advantages of colorful custom flake color combinations like this one, color flakes also provide some sound deadening qualities and hide sub-surface imperfections in your concrete. This means concrete patch work and spider cracks are less likely to show through the epoxy coating.
In addition, vinyl color floor flakes such as these are also flexible and strong. When applied to full refusal, they will add a minimum of 5 mils of thickness to your floor, improving both the durability and impact resistance of the surface.
Lastly, unlike epoxy alone, the garage floor flakes are U.V. stable. If you apply them to full refusal on an epoxy coating and then clear coat with a U.V. stable Urethane, you will never experience ambering (yellow tint) from exposure to direct or strong indirect sunlight.
Water-Based Polyurethane: Clear finish topcoat is available in gloss or satin finishes provides the durability of a solvent base system with the ease and safety of a low VOC (73 g/L) water base system. More user friendly than a polyaspartic and can be used on interior concrete floors. Read More Here.
Solvent-Based Polyurethane: Clear finish topcoat is available in gloss provides durability of a polyaspartic. The high-gloss clear top coat generates the premier balance of strength, added UV stability, flexibility, chemical and scratch resistance that is both user-friendly and extremely durable.

THOROUGH EPOXY FLAKE FLOOR APPLICATION PROCESS
NOTE: Do NOT skip prepping your garage floor properly! This is the most important part of the application to ensure a good bond. Mechanically grinding the surface of your garage floor is a must if your garage floor has oil stains, cracks, dirt, mold, mildew, or moisture stains. Concrete floors with old paint or any type of coating MUST have it completely removed and mechanically ground clean in order to accept the epoxy flake floor system!
The following is a list of tools and supplies that you will need. All of these tools can be easily purchased at Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, Amazon, or your local Hardware store.
We also included optional tools such as 18" rollers. They are not mandatory, but the wider rollers make the application process go much quicker. We highly recommend these if you are covering areas larger than 500 sq. ft.
Why Spiked Shoes? Spiked shoes allow you to walk out onto the coating during installation and for tossing the color flakes. We recommend a pair for each installer.
Why 18" Items? The 18" roller frames, rollers, and paint tray can easily be purchased online. Some home improvement centers carry them. These products greatly improve the speed and ease of applying a garage floor coating.
