Inspection

Surface must be structurally sound, dry and free of oil, grease, curing agents, dirt, dust or any other foreign material that may prevent proper adhesion.

Surface Preparation for Epoxy Liquid Granite flooring

  1. Prepare the surface by sanding, grinding, water blasting, sand blasting or shot blasting. Clean surface entirely with TSP and rinse completely with water several times. Remove mildew or algae using 50/50 blend of household beach and water, rinse thoroughly.
  2. Cracks should be filled with LD7200 Epoxy Paste according to the manufacturer’s instructions. All expansion joints should be honored and filled with 7100 Epoxy Joint Filler or equivalent.

Priming Requirements for Epoxy Liquid Granite:

Gently blend approximately 1 gallon of water with 1 gallon of 14 Series part A. Then add 1 quart of 14 Series part B to the part A mixture and apply as thin as possible, approximately 600-800 sq. ft. per batch.

How to Apply Life Deck Epoxy Liquid Granite Base Coat

  1. Apply LD 14 Series pigmented epoxy base (see mixing instructions below), at the rate of 200- 250 sq. ft. per gallon. Broadcast pre-mixed color chips into the wet base coat until no shiny spots are evident, approximately 10 sq. ft. per pound. After the base coat has cured, sweep excess chips and sand or scrape aggressively with drywall scraper.
  2. Sweep again and vacuum loose chips.
  3. Mixing – 14 Series Epoxy System Base Coat Mix 4 parts “A” with 1 part “B” in batches no larger than 1.25 gallon at a time.
  4. Top Coat: In a clean and dry bucket, mix 4 parts A and 1 part B together using an agitator, jiffymixer or stir stick. Mix slowly for at least 2 minutes or until completely combined. Prepare only the amount you can use in 1 1/2 hours in quantities of no more than 1.25 gallons at a time. Do not leave the mixed epoxy in the bucket longer than 20 minutes. (Pot life is approximately 40 minutes).

Application Clear Top Coat for Life Deck Liquid Granite

If application is interior, apply LD 31 Series Clear Epoxy at approximately 150-200 sq. ft. per gallon. If application is exterior, apply LD CRU (Chemical Resistant Urethane) at approximately 200 sq. ft. per gallon.

After first coat has dried you may sand or scrape rough spots and apply a second coat of LD31 Series Clear Epoxy or LD CRU (Chemical Resistant Urethane) at approximately 200-300 sq. ft. per gallon. Be sure to read the Product Information Sheet for application procedures.
