Deese Elite Concrete Coatings Process
Coating the Floor – Base Coat
We start by mixing a small amount of our base coat, a self-priming pure polyurea, which is used to cut in all the edges around the floor and cover the prepared concrete surface. The base coat is applied using a technique using a roller, to ensure the product is evenly distributed. We repeat the rolling process until the whole surface is covered completely.
Broadcasting the Color Flake
When the floor is coated completely with the base coat, we broadcast the flake into the wet coating by hand, covering the whole floor with the flakes. By using mass quantities of flakes, we ensure that the floor is completely covered, leaving it uniform in color and texture.
Scraping of the Chip
Once our basecoat is fully cured we “scrape” down the flake. With metal blade scrapers we walk along the floor surface putting pressure on the blade to “cut” and “scrape” any loose or vertically standing flakes.
Clear Coat Application
After our floor is prepped, coated, flaked, scraped, and vacuumed, we can start our final step — the application of the clear coat. We start by clear coating all of the vertical surfaces and then brushing the perimeter of the floor itself. The clear coat is distributed across the floor through a technique of rolling and squeegeeing. This ensures that no unsightly lines will be left upon completion of the project.
Your new Floor Coating
After 4 to 6 hours of drying you can confidently walk on your new coating and after 48 hours you can park and drive on the coating. We hope you fully enjoy your new floor!
