Should I Buy a Top Coat (clear coat)?

In most cases yes. Since there's so many circumstances that require or that we recommend you apply a top coat, I'll just tell you the situations that you can get by with not applying a top coat... Basements, since basements have light foot traffic we can safely tell you that you get to decide on this. If you're applying metallic epoxy in your basement (very popular), then if you want to pocket the cash for now, go ahead and purchase the metallic epoxy or solid color epoxy that you need. Later you can apply a top coat by simply removing the gloss with non directional screen. If you're just not sure what to do, shoot us an email using our contact for or give us a quick call. We promise we won't try to sale you but simply educate you so that you can make the best decision for your situation. 

Which Top Coat (clear coat) is best with your Metallic Epoxy?

That's Easy! TC92. Like all of our competitors top coat it gives you an orange peel texture and takes away from the look of metallic epoxy. With TC92, you don't have to sacrifice beauty over durability. Another great element is that TC92 was designed as a 1 coat system! Which means you save time and money on buying a second coat! Choose between satin finish or high gloss. TC92 can also be pigmented, and it's the urethane top coat that we recommend for warehouses that have skid loaders with solid rubber tires running on it all day! Now that's what we call durability! Best of all TC92 is easy to apply with over an hour working time. View all of our top coats by clicking here.

Best material to make samples, test, or practice on…

I’m a installer and I would like to make samples. What type of material should I use? MDF, you can find a sheet of MDF at your local hardware store. Make sure you get a thick enough size so that it’s not flimsy. 1/2” works great. You only need to make a 2 ft x 2 ft piece for samples. You can buy the 2x4 sheet, and cut it in half or just buy the 2x2 sheet. 

How do I know if my concrete has Moisture vapor?

Theres a few ways to test for moisture vapor problems. The quickest way is to take a piece of 2 ft x 2 ft plastic and duct tape it to your concrete. Wait overnight, check the next morning, if there is any condensation on the plastic then you need to proceed with a calcium chloride test. Depending on the size of your floor, you should at least get 2 tests possibly 3. So that you can test other areas of the concrete. If you have moisture problems, Vapor Pro epoxy sealer can help control moisture emission rates up to 20lb per inch for 24hrs.

I have new concrete that's perfectly flat with no cracks or imperfections. Do I still need to prep?
This is a common misconception. The answer is yes. All concrete no matter how new or old must be prepped. Concrete has what we call the "Creme" on the surface. Gravity plays a big part in this process at the time your concrete was poured. Since water can move through pretty much the smallest of spaces, the water in your concrete during installation always comes to the top. While gravity pushes the heavy material down, water comes thru the concrete, when the water comes to the top to evaporate, it creates the creme. The creme of the concrete has very little pores and if your concrete was finished or brushed it nearly has no pores at all. So as the water is pushed to the top of your concrete and the concrete begins to cure while the water begins to evaporate it leaves behind a fine layer that we call the creme. Just like icing on a cake.
