Behind the Scenes for creating the SPARTACOTE® Concrete Coatings path at International Surfaces exhibition

This is a behind the scenes look into SPARTACOTE® concrete coatings systems in action on the booth path for the new LATICRETE® International Surfaces’ exhibition coming up on January 20th.

SPARTACOTE® coatings pros Troy Wicks, Nate Barker, and Eric Pucilowski flew into the designer space to apply various SPARTACOTE concrete coatings over MDF board cut to resemble a beach path.

We’re excited to exhibit SPARTACOTE® for the first time at the 2016 Surfaces show in Las Vegas.

Read below to find out what the processes were, SPARTACOTE® products involved, and the timeline to create this fabulous decorative concrete coatings project.

Decorative Concrete Coatings Process

First, they taped over each seam. They then latex caulked in each joint.

Next, they coated the entire MDF board in SPARTACOTE® WB epoxy primer.

Then, they did a Follow up coat of SPARTACOTE® Flex PURE black.

After that, they taped-out the boxes of the LATICRETE 60th anniversary logo.

Following the taping, they painted the border of the box using SPARTACOTE® Flex XT w Metallic Arctic Ice and Chrome.

Next, they applied Cobalt Blue Metallic in the Surface Build 150 epoxy coating.

After that, Troy broadcast Blue Moon quartz along the edge for the first layer of the beach.

Next, they put down SPARTACOTE® Flex XT and broadcast quartz into that for the second layer of the beach.

Finally, they applied SPARTACOTE® Flex SB Clear over entire the walkway.
