In the video titled ‘How to Epoxy Coat Your Garage Floor| Must Watch For Diy’rs’, Mike provides the basic process of applying a tinted 100% solid epoxy coating to your garage floor.
Mike describes a four-step process involved in applying an epoxy coat. These steps include;
Prepping the floor. He uses a grinder (with diamond blades) connected to a vacuum to remove the old paint and make the floor smooth. A DIAMABRUSH prep tool is also a good option at this stage.
The smoothened floor is then wiped down with denatured alcohol to remove dust.
The primer prevents moisture from damaging the epoxy coat. The primer is spread evenly and allowed to sit for a few hours or even overnight to allow it to dry. The epoxy is dumped on the floor, spread out uniformly, and rolled until smooth and even. Mike prefers to use a gallon of epoxy for 100 square feet.
Finally, Mike applies the urethane coat, a hard scratch-resistant coat. It protects the epoxy floor and ensures durability.
