Collins Concrete Coatings is a seasoned SPARTACOTE installer in the Greater Washington, D.C., area. They serve residential, commercial and industrial clients throughout northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. After completing a residential SPARTACOTE job near D.C., they were called to a Georgetown-area piano bar to provide a concrete surface analysis and bid. After surveying the work and the owners agreeing to the bid, the work began.

The existing substrate was a 60+ year old concrete slab with the usual gouges, pop-outs, pitting and spalling. It was also painted and re-painted black and white throughout the years. There were dozens of previous patches performed as well on the existing surface. Prior owners had applied an oil-based black enamel to the floor to give it a dark sheen for effect. The Collins Team took all these things into consideration for proper surface prep and got to work.

The Collins Team used SPARTACOTE FAST FIX to repair the concrete cracks, spalls, and popouts, patching where needed. After these repairs were complete, they mechanically profiled the existing surface to an ICRI CSP 2 for proper adhesion.

After the surface prep was complete, the Collins Team applied a black primer coat to the surface. They applied SPARTACOTE Flex PURE pigmented black at approximately 200 sq ft / gallon to the prepared surface. They then allowed the base primer coat to cure for about 2 hours. Then, the Collins Team sanded the PURE primer coat with 100 grit screens. From there, they were ready for the Metallic coat.
