Did you know that SPARTACOTE Stain concrete coating systems offer a polished concrete look and feel for architectural colors with minimal downtime?

Specialized SPARTACOTE concrete coating systems offer beautiful, customized architectural color options for prepared surfaces. These systems look just like polished concrete, only they save floor owners and installers significant amounts of installation time. Further, these SPARTACOTE STAIN coatings offer floor owners excellent abrasion & impact resistance, excellent chemical & stain resistance, and easy to clean properties.

Concrete Surface Profile for SPARTACOTE Coatings Systems

Let’s talk typical installation of the SPARTACOTE STAIN coating system. Prepare the concrete by mechanical profile to an ICRI CSP 2. The roughened surface should resemble 80 to 100 grit sandpaper. Using a surface prep machine ensures that all surface contaminants are removed from the area, including mastics, glue, laitance, and other bond breaking agents.

After surface prep is complete, apply L&M VIVID DYE to the surface using a dye sprayer. Note that these concrete dyes may be mixed with acetone or water at the jobsite. Acetone flashes off faster than water, but installers have to deal with the smell. Installers must use their best judgment when selecting dye mixing agents.

L&M VIVID DYE for Concrete Coating systems

Apply mixed L&M VIVID DYE to the prepared surface at approximately 400 sq ft per gallon. Carefully remove any puddling of the dye from the surface using a clean cloth. Allow the dye to cure, typically around one to two hours. The surface will need to be 100% dry before applying the SPARTACOTE top coat.

Where else do SPARTACOTE concrete coatings go inside residential homes aside from the garage?

Did you know that SPARTACOTE concrete coatings have other applications within your home aside from just the garage?

SPARTACOTE resinous floor coatings are successfully installed in residential basements, hallways, walkways, man caves, trophy rooms, showrooms, storage areas, mud rooms, and even bathrooms.

On location in the middle of North Carolina, Global Resinous Flooring Product Manager, Ben Grier, explains the process of installing SPARTACOTE FLEX PURE™ Chip system for residential 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.
