This results in a beautiful epoxy floor coating that looks great every time because the installer scrapes off the loose flake and is left with a uniform blanket of flake on the entire concrete floor. The ideal chipping window is between 15 and 45 minutes of application. Polyurea has been formulated to be one of the easiest polyureas to apply by roller and brush, making it the ideal topcoat to use over epoxy flake concrete floor coatings. In most cases you can return the items to your garage several hours after the topcoat has been applied and the car can be parked on it in a day or two. Apply one coat of the 5205 over the epoxy flake after it has been scrapped.A lot of professional garage flooring installers use our 5205 when applying an optional build coat to the garage floor coating.
Waterbased chemical resistant urethane that has performance that is as good or better than the old school solvent based urethanes.
We recommend that cars remain off of the 5400 for 3 days and 2 days for the other garage flooring topcoat options. This installation process allows the installer to throw the flake onto the wet epoxy flooring to the point where the floor is entirely covered up by the flake. Epoxy provides plenty of time for the installer to apply the flake. The scratch resistance built into the clear topcoat will maintain its gloss for a longer period of time when compared to other concrete floor coating products.
We offer a retarder that will extend the potlife which can be really helpful for new installers. It has a long potlife of up to 60 minutes in real world conditions, yet it dries in 30 minutes or less after it is applied over the epoxy flake system. This will seal the epoxy flake and be dry in about 30-60 minutes, allowing the installer to apply the second and final epoxy flooring topcoat. Also, both the 5205 and the 5073 are non-yellowing material so use over exterior surfaces will not be a problem. The accelerator causes the epoxy flooring to dry to a hard state so the flake can be scraped in as little as two to three hours and be ready for the clear epoxy flooring topcoat.
We also sell to do it yourselfers who are confident in their abilities and we feel that if you are comfortable painting the interior of a room in a home then you should be at ease installing this system. It is important for you to note that this is not a standard concrete floor coating epoxy, we have formulated it to wick deep into the concrete so it provides fantastic long term adhesion. It is also important for you to note that we provide a lot of flake (at least 50lbs for a 2 car garage). Offering you adequate flake is how you can get a beautiful garage floor finish that looks like a professional has installed it because that is how most professional installers do it. They use 5205 because it has a long potlife, yet it dries fast when applied over the flake, allowing the installer to apply the final topcoat over it in about an hour which will leave an extra thick topcoat finish that looks incredible!
We also offer that product in a slower drying version that has a little more open time in the bucket (it still dries on the floor fast so be sure to roll it out evenly as you go or you may wind up with lap marks).
Additionally, it is a white material when mixed which makes it really easy to see if it has been applied evenly over the garage floor coating and then it dries to a clear state in about an hour.

The stone finish that you put on after sanding your countertop (make sure you wash after sanding too) will cover and fill in cracks and burns. They said you could tape around sinks don’t do it, take them out. I can’t comment on the longevity since it’s only been a few weeks since the application but it does look great. I thought, if it doesn’t work, we’re not out all that much money.
You will want to use the provided rollers so that you get the right texture and coating. The product arrived at my local store in a timely manner and we picked it up. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to freshen up the look of the kitchen or bathroom. The videos showing how to apply it all say something different. The first time after the last sanding we sanded it back down and reapplied it. I am thrilled with the results and it is reasonably easy to do. Before we tried it, we were planning to replace those horrible cultured marble counter tops and tub surround in the bathroom.
Watch the video’s on line about installing the product several times.
We were fortunate to have a piece of the marble that we ripped out of another project and used it to do a test coat and it was well worth it. I did use an electric sander on the large areas and sanded by hand in the smaller areas. The only question now is, how durable will it be, time will tell. The box contained everything needed to do this project but we did purchase extra small brushes and used a sponge weinie roller for the final coating. I was looking for a nice dark gray and the little color chips match my chosen backsplash tiles perfectly. It turned out better but nothing near what it was supposed to look like. This is a great product and was a great way for me to cover old and outdated formica countertops.
