Upgrade your epoxy system with the following options:
1. HDWB - Waterborne Epoxy Primer @ 6 mils / 267 sq ft per gallon
Industrial grade and at the perfect viscosity, HDWB is Low VOC and easy to apply. Mix Part A and Part B, pour in a paint tray, then dip and roll with a 3/8" nap roller. Make it a fast application by purchasing the following in our tools section. 21" Paint Tray, 18" Roller Frame, 18" 3/8" Nap Roller cover, and a few 3" chip brushes for those hard to reach areas.
2. HDPRO - High Solids Epoxy System @ 6 mils / 267 sq ft per gallon. Industrial grade, Low VOC, high solids epoxy system HDPRO has a little less working time than HDWB, and the difference with HDPRO as a primer is that you will need to pour on the concrete after mixing Part A and Part B. Then spread with a flat speed squeegee. After HDPRO is spread, simply back roll using a 3/8" nap roller cover. If you want to add HDPRO as your prime coat, and you need a tool list, you will need an 18" frame, 18" flat flexible speed squeegee, 18" 3/8" nap roller cover, and a couple 3" chip brushes for cut ins.

If you are purchasing a prime coat and a urethane consider which tools you will need. Here's a quick list to help you.
1. 21" Paint Tray
2. 18" Frame
3. 18" Flat Flexible Speed Squeegee (prime coat if HDPRO)

You cannot apply epoxy without 3/4" spiked shoes and most hardware stores do not carry this specialty item. We recommend that you purchase them from our website. One size fits all, and they strap to your shoes/boots. You can purchase them within our tools section here, or purchase them within this kit.
IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF CALIFORNIA
(*NO CA) / If you see this next to the option that means we cannot ship to residents of California.
We offer a variety of urethane top coats. HDI is one of our most popular urethane top coats because of the price, superior durability, and the ease of application. However it has a very harsh smell during the application process. This urethane is not California VOC compliant and we cannot ship this product to residents of California because of the strict policies of CA VOC laws.
THE GOOD NEWS FOR CA RESIDENTS / customers needing a LOW VOC top coat.
Spartan Epoxies offers several choices for residents in California or customers that need a LOW VOC top coat. If you need assistance, please give us a call, start a chat, or email us at email@example.com.
Here's a list of LOW VOC urethanes that we offer:
1. WBG - Waterborne Urethane Low Gloss.
Often times people think that since it's a waterborne product that the quality won't be the same as a NON VOC product. This simply isn't true! We use special formulations to ensure that our customers receive the highest grade product possible! Since there is a need due to a variety of situations such as VOC laws, applications where the business closes one half of the facility and keeps the other side open during flooring renovations, and even for the customer applying epoxy with an attached garage, a basement, or a floor inside the home. There has been a need for coatings that have little to no smell for decades now, and Spartan has always led the way. So feel confident that WBG will handle the toughest of flooring situations!
2. TC92 - Is a High Wear 3 component urethane top coat. (If Available / In Stock)
You can choose to leave part C out and that will provide a glossy finish, or add it into the Part A and B and you will get a satin finish. TC92 is designed to be applied as a 1 coat application.

Store product in a controlled temperature area/room to bring the material to normal room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be between 60 and 90 degree F. Low temperatures or great temperature fluctuations may cause crystallization. Coatings may cause surface to become slippery under certain conditions. If you require additional slip resistance a non skid additive may be required. View our anti-slip additive here. Keep out of the reach of children. Refer to Product label and MSDS for additional safety precautions.
STEP 1: SURFACE PREPARATION
Perform a Moisture Test: A test should be made to determine that the concrete has an appropriate vapor barrier. This can be done by placing a 4’X4’ plastic sheet on the substrate and taping down the edges. If after 24 hours, the substrate is still dry below the plastic sheet, then the substrate does not show signs of eventual hydrostatic pressure problems that may later cause disbonding.
Clean the Floor All dirt, oil, dust, foreign contaminants and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond to the substrate.
Prepare the Surface Grind, shot blast or acid etch the surface.
NOTE: Ensure floor is rinsed properly and dry before applying epoxy.
STEP 2: APPLICATION
Prior to mixing, make sure the mixing pail is clean and free of any debris.
Mix and transfer 1 gallon container of Part A and ½ gallon container of Part B into the provided mixing pail.
Mix at a slow to medium speed with the mixing equipment provided with the kit (2 to 3 minutes), making sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing pail thoroughly. Any unmixed liquids will not cure properly and will cause areas in your surface that are soft and possibly will not cure at all.
Do not use partial kits. DO NOT LIFT THE MIXING TOOL IN AND OUT OF THE EPOXY, DOING SO WILL CAUSE AIR TO BE INTRODUCED AND MOST LIKELY CAUSE BUBBLES.
Maintain temperatures within 60-90 degrees F with relative humidity below 85% during the application and curing process.
Technique 1 / Pour and Roll
Pour a ribbon of mixed epoxy onto the prepared surface. Roll coating out with a ¼” nap roller. Use the provided brushes to cut in around the edges – areas that your roller will not reach. A 1 ½ gallon kit is enough material to coat approximately 199.5 sq. ft. As you roll out the mixed material, broadcast chips into the wet epoxy. To do this, spread the chips by tossing them slightly up into the air and allowing them to settle into wet epoxy as you progress. Do not roll over the top of the paint chips once they are on the floor. Estimate the chips to use to make sure they are evenly spaced to prevent running out of chips before the end of the coated floor.
Technique 2 / Pour Ribbons, Push with Serrated Squeegee
Pour a ribbon of mixed epoxy onto the prepared surface. With your Serrated Squeegee (3/16" notched for 12mil coating / 1/8" notched for 10mil coating) push epoxy at an angle. If you left ear is facing wall, angle squeegee at 20 to 30 degrees. Have a chip brush in your hand and you can cut in the edges as you move. Think of a snow plow, how it pushes the snow off the side of the road. You will be pushing the extra epoxy to the right. Next think of mowing your grass, you're going to push the extra material towards the middle of your surface until you reach the center of your floor. Next use a 1/4" nap roller and roll in any areas that may not have been coated, then back roll the entire surface. You can start towards the back and roll an area that is large enough to accept chips. Begin broadcasting your chips, remember not to roll over any chips with you roller. If you can move fast enough, you can back roll first, then broadcast your polymer chips. Back rolling helps the epoxy to self level and removes squeegee marks. Remember you want to broadcast your chips while the epoxy is still wet. Wet epoxy will enable the chips to sink in. Move fast and have help if needed.
Tips for Broadcasting Your Chips
Spread the chips by tossing them slightly up into the air and allowing them to settle into wet epoxy as you progress. Do not roll over the top of the paint chips once they are on the floor. Estimate the chips to use to make sure they are evenly spaced to prevent running out of chips before the end of the coated floor.
This material has a usable pot life of about 20 to 35 minutes depending on temp.
Allow epoxy to dry. At 70 degrees F, the floor should be ready for light foot traffic within 12-16 hours. For heavier traffic allow the floor to fully cure, 2-7 days.
Recommended: You may want to apply a clear topcoat to your epoxy floor. Please consult with your representative for available options. You can visit our Top Coats here.
