PennCoat Projects – Epoxy Flooring Installation

In fall of 2014, PennCoat, Inc was contacted by an engineering firm in eastern Pennsylvania to install a 6000 square foot, 100% solid epoxy floor.  The engineering firm was expanding their production area, and wanted to utilize an open floor.  It was their desire to coat and protect the concrete with an epoxy coating from the manufacturing machinery and heavy traffic the area could expect.    We did some measuring, made some estimates, and offered some viable options for their floor.  Ultimately, they selected a 16mil epoxy floor coating.

The first step was to prepare the floor.  Using a planetary grinder, we ground the floor, removing any existing coating and contaminants that may cause adhesion failure between the epoxy and the substrate.

After grinding the floor, the next step was to patch the joints and any defections with the concrete, to create a smooth and flush surface.


After the floor was adequately prepared with planetary grinding and epoxy patching, PennCoat’s installers applied the first coat of epoxy at 8mils.  And after allowing enough time to cure, the 2nd coat was applied at 8mil within 24 hours, so not to miss the chance for both coats to chemically bond.
