  GENERAL SURFACE PREPARATION

Concrete Surfaces: - Concrete must be clean, dry and contaminant free. New concrete must be allowed to cure for a minimum of 30 days. Remove any Oil, Grease, and dirt by Utilizing "The Original Color Chip Floor Painting System" Etch n' Clean Solution. If your surface is smooth it must be roughened up or sanded. Etching the concrete allows the base coat to adhere securely.

Other Surfaces: - Wood, etc. Surfaces must be clean, dry and contaminant free. (A double base coat is recommended for wood surfaces).

Patching: - Patching of Holes and Cracks is an optional step. Patch all holes and cracks by utilizing "The Original Color Chip Floor Coating System" Epoxy Patching Compound.

Coating System Mixing Instructions: - Pour the entire contents of the Part B into the Part A Thoroughly mix the two together for approximately 3 minutes. Kit equals 1 gallon. Note: If the two parts are not mixed together properly the coating will not dry or harden. Induction is 30 minutes. Once material is mixed it must be used with in 6-8 hours, after then the material will begin to harden and become un-useable. Coverage: 200-250 Square feet per gallon kit. This is equal to a one-car garage.


  APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

Basecoat / Chips: - After material is thoroughly mixed, Start Painting in the corner furthest away from the exit of the room. Use a brush to cut in along the walls, use a good quality inch nap roller to roll material on floor surfaces away from the wall. After painting approximately 6 feet from the starting point you should begin to apply the chips. Note: Multiple colors of chips should be mixed together in a separate container prior to start of application. Chips are applied by tossing them upward toward the ceiling allowing them to float down into the wet basecoat. (we recommend an overhand throw) Continue painting approximately 6 foot wide sections and tossing chips until entire floor is complete. Note: be careful not to drop chips in handfuls directly down onto floor, once chips are placed they cannot be moved. Allow basecoat/chips to dry 8-10 hours.

Topcoat / Non-Skid: - Once ready to apply topcoat, mix Part A and Part B together (equals one gallon). Induction is 30 minutes. After material is thoroughly mixed, start painting in the corner furthest away from the exit of the room. Use a brush to cut in along the walls, use a good quality inch nap roller to roll material on floor surfaces away from the walls. Roll one even coat of Crystal Clear topcoat to entire surface to be coated. Non-Skid may be broadcast and back rolled over during application of clear topcoat. Note: Material will go on as a milky white (may even look yellow) and dry Crystal clear.

Helpful Hints: - Be sure to apply the material at 200-250 square feet per gallon. Be sure to have enough chips to do entire surface. (1 bag per 250 square feet for Light sprinkle, 2 bags per 250 square feet for medium sprinkle, etc) When applying topcoat walk on previously applied chip/basecoat with clean shoes or socks only, any dirt or debris tracked on to chip/ basecoat will be sealed in by application of clear topcoat. Throw chips upward not downward. A second person may apply chips in conjunction with the first person rolling the basecoat. We usually recommend a three day process: Day 1: etch and power wash the surface, the next day apply your base coat and chips, and Day 3 roll on your top coat.

Drying / curing times: - Dry to touch 30-60 minutes. Dry to recoat 8-10 hours. Dry to foot traffic 24 hours. Dry to vehicle traffic 4-7 days.

Clean-Up: - Clean brushes rollers and equipment with warm soapy water followed by clean water rinse.
