The Meticulous Process of Epoxy Flooring

When it comes to long-lasting floor solutions, epoxy coatings sit comfortably at the top of the list. Their ability to endure heavy traffic, resistance to chemicals, and customizable aesthetics make them a preferred choice for many. But have you ever wondered what goes into the process of applying these ultra-durable coatings? At Nevada Custom Coatings, we pride ourselves on our meticulous and comprehensive application process, ensuring every epoxy coating adheres to your floor for life.

Step 1: Surface Preparation

The first step is crucial, as it involves preparing the concrete. Using high-quality diamond grinders, our team carefully grinds the floor to create an even surface. This process opens the pores of the concrete, allowing the epoxy to bond more securely. We employ industrial-strength vacuums with HEPA filters during the grinding process to safely collect the concrete dust as it’s generated. This keeps the area clean and breathable both during and after the preparation phase.

Step 2: Application of Wicking Epoxy

Next, we apply a wicking epoxy that penetrates deep into the holes and hairline cracks in the concrete. This epoxy forms a strong bond with the concrete, securing itself permanently. Once dry, this bond ensures the epoxy adheres to the floor for life, preventing peeling or bubbling. This crucial step gives our epoxy coatings an edge over other methods in terms of durability.

Step 3: Customization and Personalization

Once the wicking epoxy has been properly applied, the next step is where the fun begins. We work closely with you to decide on custom color and texture options that best suit your space. Whether you’re looking for bold, vibrant colors or prefer subtle, sophisticated tones, we’ve got you covered. We offer color flakes, granules, metallics, and micas to help you find just the right look and feel for your epoxy floor. The diversity of textures also allows for the creation of a floor that is as unique as you are.

Step 4: Application of Topcoat

Following the customization, we seal everything in with a durable topcoat. This topcoat not only enhances the overall look of your floor but also adds an extra layer of protection, making your epoxy coating more resistant to wear and tear, ultraviolet light, and even corrosive liquids.

Step 5: Adding Optional Safety Features

At Nevada Custom Coatings, we value safety as much as aesthetics. We offer additional features like a non-slip finish, ensuring your beautiful new floor is safe to walk on even when wet. For an added measure of protection, we can also incorporate coved flooring options, which prevent water from seeping under walls or cabinets.
