RESTORE-A-GARAGE EPOXY APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Weather Conditions: Ensure the surface temperature is between 45ºF and 95ºF. Avoid application of product when the daily low is below 45 or when rain is expected within 12 hours. Do not apply in direct sunlight.
NOTE: It is best to work from the far back of the work area when applying the epoxy. Do not stand or walk on the epoxy during the application process or immediately following the application unless you are wearing the proper application spiked shoes. Protect Adjacent Areas: Use plastic, cardboard, and/or drop cloths to protect all adjacent non-target surfaces.
Equipment: Flat Squeegee, Drill, Drill Mixer Paddle, Roller.
- Make sure you have enough product for the area that is to be coated.
- Carefully remove the lid from the pail.
- Remove the can marked Part B from the cradle.
- Remove the cradle from the pail and discard it.
- Carefully remove the lock ring from the can and open the can.
Important Note: If the color you choose came in a tint pack (not pre-mixed into Part A) add this to the Part A first and mix for two minutes (Using a drill and a drill mixer paddle) prior to adding the Part B. If the color is already pre-mixed in, proceed to Step 6.
- Pour the entire contents of Part B into the pail, Part A.
- Using a drill motor and a mixer, blend material all together for 2 minutes, carefully moving the drill around to ensure a good mix. There must be no visible Part B remaining after the mix.
- Once the product has been mixed for 2 minutes, empty entire contents of pail onto the floor to be coated within 60 seconds after the mixing is completed. Pour the entire mixture into a uniform bead onto the floor in a straight line, making certain that the width of the epoxy poured out spreads approximately 12 to 14 inches on the floor. Move quickly when pouring the line to the floor.
- Use the squeegee to spread a 3 to 5-foot wide area. Continue to spread with squeegee and backroll with the roller to apply an even, thin application. Do not over-roll. You will have 30 minutes to apply the product to the surface. The product will cure in the pail after 35–40 minutes.
- After the Epoxy has been spread into an even coating, apply the fleck by casting (with an underhand toss) it evenly and thoroughly over the coated areas. Remember to break up your areas by only coating areas small enough that you can reach by casting the fleck as you will not be able to walk onto the epoxy after it has been coated.
The optional non-slip aluminum oxide additive should be applied after applying the decorative fleck. An easy way to apply it is by placing it in a hand-held seed spreader. This will allow you to broadcast the non-slip aluminum oxide additive evenly throughout the entire area.
NOTE: If the product is left in the bucket it will react and cure within 10 minutes and will not be usable. By pouring the epoxy onto the cool concrete, it will slow down the hardening process and give you a total work time of 35 minutes.
CAUTION: The material will become extremely hot if left in the bucket for longer than 10 minutes. Do not touch the bucket or material.
3-Gallon Epoxy Kit coverage 380-480 sq. Ft. (2 1/2 car garage) at 10 mils dft (dry film thickness)
1.5-Gallon Epoxy Kit coverage 190-240 sq. Ft. (2 1/2 car garage) at 10 mils dft (dry film thickness)
A complete cure of the Epoxy coating is 24 to 48 hours at 65º F and less than 50% humidity. Do not close the garage door, walk on, or drive on until fully cured. Temperatures lower than 75° will result in longer cure times.
Clean tools immediately after each use with soap and water.
