How to Apply EpoxyShield Concrete Floor Paint
Allow new concrete to cure for a minimum of 28 days. Sweep away all loose dirt and debris. Remove any oil spots, grease or spills and wash the floor with a suitable detergent or degreasing solution and rinse. Then etch the floor using the Rust-Oleum Concrete Etch.
Previously Coated Floors : Make sure the floor is clean and dry. Use a wire brush to remove any loose or peeling paint or stain. If floor is sealed, the sealer will have to be removed by grinding or shot blasting. To ensure proper adhesion, scuff sand the entire surface.
Apply only when air, material, and surface temperatures are between 60-85Â°F (15-29Â°C) and the surface temperature is at least 5Â°F (3Â°C) above the dew point. The relative humidity should not be greater than 85%. Stir thoroughly. Cut in the perimeter of the floor along the wall, or other areas where a roller cannot reach, using a brush or edger before beginning roller application. Use a synthetic Â½"" nap roller cover on a 9"" roller frame to apply an even coat of EpoxyShield Concrete Paint onto the surface. Limit the application to 4x4 foot (1.2x1.2m) sections at a time. If decorative chips are used, scatter the chips up and away from you so they land flat on the wet paint, then continue on to the next section. Note: Fresh paint can be applied over the loose chips lying outside the previously painted area. Maintain a wet edge to prevent lap marks and gloss differences. Make all final passes in the same direction to help ensure uniform appearance. Only one coat is necessary under most circumstances. Occasional touch-up may be required in areas subject to heavy traffic.
