Professional Concrete Coating Preparation and Application Process in Wichita, KS
At Urban Concrete Coatings, we have the right tools to do the job. Our trained expert installers pride themselves in meticulous preparation and application, following a strict process to ensure the coating properly bonds the floor to give you a durable, long-lasting product.
Step 1 – Surface Preparation
To ensure a proper bond, we diligently prepare the concrete floor using diamond grinders with integrated vacuum systems for a perfectly smooth surface free of dust and debris.
Step 2 – Concrete Profiling
Before applying any coating, our installers will use menders and fillers to repair cracks, pits, and spalls in your existing concrete slab. This reconstruction step will result in a smooth surface for a longer-lasting finish.
Step 3 – Basecoat
The initial coat of self-priming urethane creates the essential bond needed to secure the product to the floor. This important step ensures your coating won’t peel up even when exposed to drastic temperature changes, chemicals, abrasions, or intense impact.
Step 4 – Applying the Vinyl Chips
Immediately after applying the basecoat, multi-colored vinyl chips are scattered across the floor, providing texture for slip resistance and creating a granite look. The chips can be custom blended into nearly any color, allowing you to create the perfect look.
Step 5 – Scraping the Chips
Once the basecoat has cured, we scrape loose flakes to remove any imperfections and thoroughly vacuum the floor in preparation for the final coat.
Step 6 – Clear Topcoat
The final clear, UV-stable topcoat layer protects your investment against natural wear and tear such as spills, scuffs, and sharp impacts. After this final layer has been applied, your new flooring is fully cured.
