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.
