Garage Floors, Patios, and Walkways
We offer a product line that can change the look of your garage floor, patio or walkway to give the appearance of
a granite finish, our multistone color selection has 66 mulitispec colors to choose from.
As a chemical company we have seen (first hand) the problems many homeowners have after painting their cement floors with standard epoxies only to have them peel within a few months. The reason most epoxies fail is due to lack of chemical resistance that they carry when causes the chemical to break down and fail.
Our process uses a clear finishing coat of industrial Aliphatic Acrylic Polyurethane that is actually considered a Anti-Graffiti coating. When using this finishing coat no chemicals such as oil, salt or chemicals that might come in contact with our finishing coat can penetrate through it thus protecting the multistone and primer used for our cement refinishing.
Lack of consumer knowledge of chemicals and proper procedures has lead to a high failure rate in this industry. We hope we can instruct you and make you aware of the proper way to refinish cement so you can enjoy years of beauty that our coatings will give you.
We will first explain the procedures then you can see step by step how cement should be refinished. First you may want to look at our color selection of multispec colors by clicking this link (Multispec colors). There are four major steps of the process.
Process for Multistone Refinishing
1. Power wash the cement that is going to be refinished. We suggest a power washer that has at least 2600 PSI
of power. If your floor was painted and is peeling you MUST get the old finish COMPLETELY off, this might
be achieved easier with a power washer with at least 4000 PSI. Preparation is the key for longevity, the
cement must be Spotless to achieve this.
2. Primer the cement with our XL aerospace primer. This primer will be made to match the color of the multistone you have picked out. The primer is a two part industrial epoxy loaded with Silane, which is an adhesion promoter. This primer can be sprayed on, but for ease of application it can be rolled on with a fine matt-roller. Two coats should be applied for better adhesion.
3. Apply your mulistone over the primer. Multistone MUST be sprayed on with a HVLP system or airless system. You can rent these at local paint stores. We will give you the specifications of the equipment later in our step by step picture lay out.
4. Apply the clear coat on 24 hours after you have sprayed on the multistone. You can also can roll or spray it on. Apply two coats waiting 6 hours between coats. Cement can be used lightly after 24 hours and driven on after 48 hours. The procedures might seem involved, but this is the only way to achieve longevity.
Process for Solid Color Refinishing
1. Power wash the cement that is going to be refinished. We suggest a power washer that has at least 2600PSI
of power, if your floor was painted and is peeling you MUST get the old finish COMPLETELY off, this might be
achieved easier with a power washer with at least 4000 PSI. Preperation is the key to longevity, the cement
must be spotless to achieve this.
2. Primer the cement floor with our XL aerospace primer. This primer can be made to match any color you desire. We carry all of Sherwin Williams, Behr and Benjemin Moore paints, just call us with the color number and name. Apply primer on with a solvent resistant roller. Two coats are recommended for better adhesion. You can apply second coat over first in two hours.
3. You can apply your clear coat sealer three hours after applying primer. Apply one thick coat with a solvent resistant roller. You can apply a second coat after 5 hours if you want more durability. You will be able to walk on surface after 24 hrs and drivable on after 72 hrs.
