SPARTACOTE® Flex Quartz Concrete Coatings project at Espacio Minerva in Guadalara Mexico interior & exterior parking structure application

SPARTACOTE® Flex Quartz Concrete Coatings project at Espacio Minerva in Guadalara Mexico in both interior & exterior parking structure application

Project Name: Espacio Minerva

Location: Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico

Owner: Dalton Corporation

SPARTACOTE Installer: Grupo Delcosa

This project was approximately 6000 m2 of a mixed interior and exterior parking structure in Guadalara Mexico.

The concrete coating system installed is SPARTACOTE® Flex Quartz with a dark grey base coat. The first coat applied was grey with quartz additive, then 2 more coats of grey. The crew also had to paint over the cove base and up approximately 10 cm of the walls, traffic arrows, and handicap spaces. In addition, they had to coat highly corrugated concrete on ramps.

This was a very difficult installation. The concrete was in poor condition and needed much surface preparation (i.e. not level and many cracks). The contractor was only allowed to work during the day, and the polyaspartic coatings were difficult to install in the hot sun. Additionally, there were days of rain—including Hurricane Patricia. For such a difficult job, the first-time SPARTACOTE® installers Grupo Delcosa performed impressively.

Dalton Corporation, the floor owner, is a very large company with a wide range of business, including car dealerships, construction, and real estate. This parking area is part of a garage deck adjacent to a mixed-use apartment complex / office complex in which the company has its headquarters as well as high end residential real estate.

Congratulations to Grupo Delcosa on a job well done.

SPARTACOTE® concrete coatings featured in ‘Dallas Car Sharks’ TV show on Velocity network

SPARTACOTE® Guard concrete coatings are featured in the Dallas Car Sharks television program on the Velocity network. The Dallas Car Sharks show is about a busy auto auction, the Lone Star Auto Auction, where market participants come together to bid on cars. Over 400+ cars go over the customized SPARTACOTE® Flex Guard coating system every day, turning wheels and testing the resinous floor.

For such a busy retail space, facility downtime means lost revenue. The auto auction floor owners need maximum uptime, highly durable and easy to clean flooring. SPARTACOTE® Guard concrete coatings give them these benefits, along with the custom aesthetics required to complement their interior facility of approximately 8,400 ft.²

How to install Residential Concrete Coatings Chip Systems for Garages

On location in North Carolina, SPARTACOTE concrete coatings subject matter expert, Ben Grier, explains the process of installing SPARTACOTE FLEX PURE™ Chip system for residential garages.

How to install Residential Concrete Coatings Chip Systems for Garages

We performed surface prep to a CSP 2, which is about 40 to 50 grit sandpaper texture. We put down the pigmented base coat SPARTACOTE FLEX PURE™ light grey at 200 sq ft per gallon. We then broadcast the chip media directly into that light grey coating. We waited about an hour and then blew off the excess chip media with a leaf blower. We then scooped it up and retained the excess chip for a future project. Next, we scraped the chip with sharp floor scrapers in three opposing directions to ensure it is smooth and ready for a SPARTACOTE FLEX PURE™ topcoat. After that, we put down the clear topcoat of PURE material at an application rate of 150 to 200 sq ft per gallon. We applied that with a ribbon of material, swept-in with a SPARTACOTE Broom, and then followed that up with a double, perpendicular back-roll. In this particular instance, we included a 60-grit SPARTACOTE traction additive in the final finish for added slip resistance.

SPARTACOTE concrete floor coating systems are applied in areas throughout the home, not just garages. Whether you are looking to spruce up your residential entryway or hallway or looking to install a functional protective concrete coating in your basement, bathrooms or garage, SPARTACOTE has several options to choose from.
