Epoxy Garage Floors
Epoxy Garage Floor
Epoxy Garage Floor photos on this page show the different stages of work performed on a motorcycle dealership floor in Independence, Missouri. This floor was previously tiled with 18 inch by 18 inch vinyl tile. Most of the tile had been removed, however, years of mopping the floor resulted in a buildup of water staining and debris around each of the tile.
A diamond grinding machine was used to remove all surface debris and open the pores of the concrete to be able to accept the epoxy coating. The first grinding was with aggressive, 20 grit segments. The second grinding was a (finer grit) profile grinding using 80 grit diamond segments on the diamond grinding machine.
Next, the floor was cleaned with a cleaning machine. Afterward, it was mopped clean, and allowed to dry.
Once completely dry, the first coat of water based epoxy was applied. After 24 hours drying time, a second coat of epoxy was applied. A top coat of Balatrex was applied to provide an extra protective barrier to the floor.
Epoxy Floor Completion
After another 48 hours drying time, this motorcycle dealership was able to display their motorcycle inventory on this newly epoxied floor.
