Application of WT Vinyl Chips
Epoxy floor chips have a quick application process that allows you to walk on your finished floor within a day or two. To begin, you want to prepare the concrete surface by cleaning then roughing up the surface so the primer can adhere. Vacuum your space, then fill any large cracks and defects.
Next, you apply the primer or base coat of TI Epoxy HP or Polyaspartic 85. The primer ensures proper adhesion and seals air in the concrete. Pour the primer onto the surface and spread with a squeegee. Backroll with a roller to smooth it out.
Broadcast the vinyl chips by pouring them into a clean bucket and tossing handfuls into the air. Throwing them upward allows for a more even coverage onto the tacky floor. Because you cannot have complete control how the chips land, smooth out the floor with a floor scraper or large drywall knife. Then, you can vacuum the floor to remove the excess.
Finally, apply Polyaspartic 85 as a protective topcoat onto the floor and use the squeegee to spread the material. Backroll with a nap roller until you have a smooth, even topcoat. You can apply one or two topcoats, depending on your preference.
