Pictures shown may not be exact due to color process limitations. For absolute color fidelity, colors should be selected from physical samples. 



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

Mix Product

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. 


Apply Product

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.

Preparation, Mixing and Installation Instructions for Primer / Base - HD PRO High Solids System. This kit includes HD PRO, our superior and most versatile base system. 


1) PRODUCT STORAGE: Store product in an area so as to bring the material to normal room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be between 60 and 90 degrees F. Low temperatures or great temperature fluctuations may cause crystallization.


2) SURFACE PREPARATION: The most suitable surface preparation would be a fine brush blast (shot blast) to remove all laitance and provide a suitable profile. All dirt, foreign contaminants, oil, and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond to the substrate. A test should be made to determine that the substrate (Concrete, Laminate, Tile, Formica, MDF, etc) is dry; 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 is dry enough to start coating. The plastic sheet testing is also a good method to determine if any hydrostatic pressure problems exist that may later cause dis-bonding.


3) PRODUCT MIXING: This product has a mix ratio of 12# part A to 3.85# part B for standard colors. Standard packages are in pre-measured kits and should be mixed as supplied in the kit. We highly recommend that the kits not be broken down unless suitable weighing equipment is available. After the two parts are combined, mix well with slow speed mixing equipment such as a jiffy mixer until the material is thoroughly mixed and streak free. After mixing, transfer the mixed material to another pail (the transfer pail) and again remix. The material in the transfer pail is now ready to be applied on the primed substrate. Improper mixing may result in product failure.


4) PRIMING: This product is only intended as a high solids primer suitable for most substrates. However, if the surface is very porous, then a lower solids primer might be more suitable to reduce the possibility of air release problems occurring. Contact your Spartan Epoxies sales rep for more information.


5) PRODUCT APPLICATION: The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller. However, the material can also be applied by a suitable serrated squeegee and then back rolled as long as the appropriate thickness recommendations are maintained. Maintain temperatures and relative humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. If concrete conditions or over aggressive mixing causes air entrapment, then an air release roller tool should be used prior to the coating tacking o to remove the air entrapped in the coating. Thinner applications will not level as well as higher build applications.


6) RECOAT OR TOPCOATING: Although a topcoat is recommended, it is optional. Many topcoats are suitable for placement over this coating including both urethanes and epoxies. When top coating this product, you must first be sure that the coating has tacked o before top coating can commence. Before top coating, check the coating to verify no epoxy blushes were developed (a whitish, greasy film or de-glossing). If a blush is present, it must be removed prior to top coating. A standard type detergent cleaner can be used to remove any blush. Many epoxy coatings and urethanes are compatible for use as a topcoat for this product as well as multiple coats of this product as an intermediate build coat.


7) CLEANUP: Xylol is the most effective, but if you wish not to use xylol, you can use acetone or alcohol. Xylol is the best and most recommended. Remember to protect your skin and eyes.


8) CLEANING: Caution! Some cleaners may affect the color of the epoxy installed. Test each cleaner in a small area, utilizing your cleaning technique. If no ill effects are noted, you can continue to clean with the product and process tested.


9) RESTRICTIONS: Restrict the use of the surface to light traffic and non-harsh chemicals until the coating is fully cured (see technical data under full cure). It is best to let the floor remain dry for the full cure cycle. Dependent on actual complete system application, the surface may be slippery, especially when wet or contaminated; keep the surface clean and dry.

Preparation, Mixing and Installation Instructions for SPE-META-UV / 100% CLEAR EPOXY BINDER System. 


1.) PRODUCT STORAGE: Store product in an area so as to bring the material to normal room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be between 60 and 90 degrees F. Low temperatures or temperature fluctuations may cause crystallization.


2.) SURFACE PREPARATION: The most suitable surface preparation would be a fine brush blast (shot blast) to remove all laitance and provide a suitable profile. All dirt, foreign contaminants, oil, and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond to the substrate. A test should be made to determine that the substrate (Concrete, Laminate, Tile, Formica, MDF, etc) is dry; 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 is dry enough to start coating. The plastic sheet testing is also a good method to determine if any hydrostatic pressure problems exist that may later cause disbanding.


3.) PRODUCT MIXING: When mixing metallics take part B, open and pour into bucket, next open Metallic container and slowly pour into part B while mixing thoroughly. Make sure metallics achieve wetness. Once all metallics are mixed thoroughly add Part A and again mix thoroughly. To prevent air from being introduced into the epoxy, DO NOT lift mixing blade out of epoxy while mixing. This product has a mix ratio of 9.0# part A to 4.15# part B. Standard packages are in pre-measured kits and should be mixed as supplied in the kit. We highly recommend that the kits not be broken down unless suitable weighing equipment is available. After the two parts are combined, mix well with slow speed mixing equipment such as a jiffy mixer until the material is thoroughly mixed and streak free. After mixing, transfer the mixed material to another pail (the transfer pail) and again remix. The material in the transfer pail is now ready to be applied on the primed substrate. Improper mixing may result in product failure.


4.) PRIMING: A suitable primer should be used before applying this product. See the front side of this technical data for primer information. If a primer is not used, more porous substrates may cause outgassing and possible surface defects.


5.) PRODUCT APPLICATION: The mixed material can be applied by brush or roller. However, the material can also be applied by a suitable serrated squeegee and then back rolled as long as the appropriate thickness recommendations are maintained. Maintain temperatures and relative humidity within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process. If concrete conditions or over aggressive mixing causes air entrapment, then an air release roller tool should be used prior to the coating tacking off to remove the air entrapped in the coating. This product can be used with various colored sand in a broadcast system or other suitable aggregate can be used in conjunction with this product to achieve a variety of color and application patterns. When using as a broadcast binder, always evaluate performance parameters with a test area which is dependent on aggregate size and thickness, prior to application. Contact your representative for details as necessary.


6. RECOAT OR TOPCOATING: If you opt to recoat or topcoat this product, you must first be sure that the coating has tacked o before recoating. Always remember that colder temperatures will require more cure time for the product before recoating or top coating can commence. Before recoating or top coating, check the coating to ensure no epoxy blushes were developed (a whitish, greasy film or de-glossing). If a blush is present, it must be removed prior to top coating or recoating. Many epoxy coatings and urethanes are compatible for use as a topcoat for this product as well as multiple coats of this product.


7) CLEANUP: Use xylol.


8) CLEANING: Caution! Some cleaners may affect the color. Test each cleaner in a small area. If no ill effects are noted, you can continue to clean with the product and process tested.


9) RESTRICTIONS: Restrict the use of the epoxy to light traffic/use, and non-harsh chemicals until the coating is fully cured (see technical data under full cure). It is best to let the floor remain dry for the full cure cycle. Dependent on actual complete system application, the surface may be slippery, especially when wet or contaminated; keep the surface clean and dry.

Customer Review - Dave S. Metallic Epoxy for Warehouse and Commercial Floors - Spartan Epoxies

I can't say enough about my experience with Spartan Epoxies. I have a 6500 square ft airplane hangar that needed a floor. I chose a white base with all pearl metallic powder. Jeff and Bryan walked me thru the entire process. They even filmed a sample board for me and gave me the proper technique to achieve the look I was going for. Before we started, Spartan jumped on a call with myself and my helpers. They got everyone here that was involved in installing and gave us precise instructions. They got us organized, assigned jobs for each installer, answered every question, gave us confidence, and we got the job done with amazing results! Compared to other companies, I saved thousands and got a better product in my opinion. (I've used other online epoxy companies prior and payed double!). Thank you Spartan Epoxies! I plan on using their company for all of my projects from now on.
