We’re often asked how to install and apply SPARTACOTE Metallic Concrete Coatings systems. This unique, artistic coating system is actually one of the easier SPARTACOTE systems to install. It consists of a black base primer coat, the Metallic mid-coat, and then a clear SPARTACOTE top coat. Installers may add SPARTACOTE GRIP for additional traction if the floor owners would like.

After the black base coat cures, prepare the Metallic pigment coat.

Take the 8 oz Metallic pigment bottle and pour into 1 Gallon of Spartacote Flex SB part A clear. Mix thoroughly for two minutes.
