A.  The concrete should cure for at least 30 days before applying epoxy.

A.  The work time. Unlike paint, the epoxy begins to cure immediately and you have only about 45 minutes work time to squeegee, back roll and apply fleck and aluminum oxide.

Q.  What is the best way to get even distribution of the color chips?

A.  Place about a quarter-size amount in the palm of your hand and using an underhand motion (think throwing underhand) throw the fleck into the air. If applying fleck in a garage and there is wind, you need to “play the wind” by tossing the fleck towards the wind.

Q.  What does my warranty cover?

A.  The epoxy only. We cannot guarantee the epoxy if the floor heaves, shifts or was not properly prepared.
