How Do You Apply GlobMarble Garage Floor System with Epoxy Floor Flake Chips
- Level the floor with a floor grinder or self-leveling concrete
- Make sure your concrete floor is not retaining moisture. Test this by taping a 2’X2’ plastic sheet to the floor, and leave it overnight. If there are water bubbles under the plastic, the concrete is retaining moisture.
- Mix part A & B of GE-100 Floor Epoxy at a 2:1 ratio. Add one of our epoxy pigments that match the color of your flakes.
- Squeegee the epoxy onto your floor. Be sure to wear spike shoes!
- Backroll the epoxy with an EpoxyGlide roller (roll it on blue painters’ tape beforehand to remove loose fibers).
- Throw the flakes into the air and let them fall onto your epoxy (chicken feeding motion). Cover the entire floor with flakes evenly.
- Once it cures, (usually 12-24 hours later) vacuum the leftover flakes. You could also scrape vertical flakes with a trowel.
- Mix, pour and roll a topcoat to seal your flakes.
Flakes frequently asked questions:
Q: Can I apply flakes outdoors?
A: Yes, as long as you use a UV resistant topcoat. Any other topcoat will turn yellow. Contact a GlobMarble sales rep to order UV resistant topcoats
Q: Can I apply this epoxy system on tiles?
A: Yes, as long as you use a diamond grinder on the tiles and fill the seams with a void filler.
Q: How is your product different from The Home Depot/Lowe’s product?
A: Home Depot and Lowes will offer you a gallon of floor epoxy with only a handful of flakes. Our 25lb box of flakes covers 125–175 ft2 (11.6 – 16.3 m2) at full broadcast
Q: I've heard that a primers will increase longevity? Do you have any primers available?
A: Yes, even though primers are not required with a flake system, they do help longevity. We have epoxy primers in a variety of colors.
Q: What is the best temperature to apply my floor coating?
A: You could apply our floor epoxy at 55-90 degrees F (10-32 C). The colder it is, the slower your epoxy will cure.
Q: When I mix and apply my topcoat, it is white and milky. Did I do something wrong?
A: No, some topcoats begin as milky, but clear up while they cure. Thicker coats will take longer to clear up (6-12 hours). We recommend 2 thin coats instead of 1 thick coat.
