Concrete contractors train on SPARTACOTE® concrete coatings at Innovative Floor Coatings in New Port Richey, FL

Concrete contractors train on SPARTACOTE® concrete coatings at Innovative Floor Coatings in New Port Richey, FL

Mark Plumb, owner of Innovative Floor Coatings based in New Port Richey, FL, hosted a recent training on SPARTACOTE® concrete coating systems. David Schneider and Ben Grier, SPARTACOTE subject matter experts, were lead trainers along with Mark on the coatings systems.

The two day training begins with an overview of proper concrete surface prep procedures and various concrete surface profiles. From there, the team discusses concrete crack repair and cove base installation using Cab-o-sil with the coatings materials.

At such trainings held by Innovative Coatings and SPARTACOTE, Contractors get hands-on with the materials, aiding in mixing and rolling the materials out. This hands-on experience is an excellent way for them to build comfort with the various SPARTACOTE coatings systems and make mistakes in a safe environment vs. on the job.

Training participants apply materials to build Chip, Quartz, and Metallic concrete coatings systems, with Schneider, Grier, and Plumb assisting and guiding as needed. Further discussions include bidding jobs for profit, active pursuit of both residential and commercial work, and SPARTACOTE best practices for coatings installers.

Thank you to all participants for their time and effort at the Innovative Floor Coatings training.

International concrete contractors and distributors trained on SPARTACOTE® concrete coatings & polished concrete at Natural Stone Solutions

MIAMI, FL – Alex de Quesada, President of Natural Stone Solutions (NSS), hosted a recent training on SPARTACOTE® concrete coating systems and polished concrete at his facility located in Miami, FL. Alejandro Luna, LATICRETE technical sales rep in the South Florida Atlantic region and Wayne Hoerning, LATICRETE regional sales manager of the Caribbean, both were co-hosts with Alex.

Alejandro led the group contractor training in SPARTACOTE® concrete coatings systems, demonstrating the Chip, Quartz, Guard (solid color), VIVID DYE concrete stain and Metallic systems. He did an excellent job thoroughly explaining each SPARTACOTE® system in both English and Spanish while he applied the coating, often doing all of the work himself. Furthermore, he ensured that each training participant’s questions were answered before moving onto the next segment.

When Alejandro wasn’t doing the SPARTACOTE® coatings training, he was helping Alex from NSS show their own line of polished concrete equipment, called Stonecrete. The team had poured and placed L&M DURAFLOOR HP, a polishable overlay, on Tuesday, which set it up for polishing on Wednesday. Alex led the international concrete contractor group through the diamond chain, beginning the polishing process with 40 grit metal bond diamonds all the way through the 3000 grit finish. After the 400 grit resin bond diamonds, they dyed the cementitious overlay with L&M VIVID DYE terra cotta and locked in the color with L&M LION HARD densifier.

Alejandro was enthusiastic about the International group training. He states, “It is great to see the buzz we are creating with SPD and how many decided to make the trip from Latin America and the Caribbean just before the holidays on such short notice. These trainings are usually planned several months in advance but we […]
