We start by mixing up a small amount of our base coat, a 100% solids self-priming pure polyurea, which we brush on to all vertical surfaces. Next, we throw handfuls of chips and use a scraper to pull them vertically against the wall, leaving the surface fully covered. We then vacuum and recover any loose chip left behind on the floor.

broadcasting flake chips

When the floor is coated completely, we mix our chips (sometimes called flakes) in a large container to insure an even blend of colors. We then broadcast the chips into the wet coating by hand, covering the whole floor with the chips. By using large quantities of chips, we ensure that the floor is completely covered, leaving it uniform in color and texture. The cure time of our basecoat is typically 45-60 minutes, depending on outside temperatures.

We check to make sure that all the areas are level with the floor and refill any uneven areas. We believe that it is best to leave all control joints open to allow for the movement of the concrete and relieve the stress. If requested, control joints can certainly be filled for aesthetic value. The repair process is followed by vacuuming the floor and using a leaf blower to flush out any remaining debris. The surface is now ready for coating.
