How exactly does that work?
Treating a concrete floor requires basic knowledge about the pre-treatment. Without a good pre-treatment, no good result. A bare concrete floor should in any case be cleaned with, for example, an alkaline product such as our UNICLEAN LOW FOAMING. This clears the floor from dirty and greasy deposits. If the concrete floor already has an old concrete paint layer, this old layer must first be removed. You can then sand the floor with a special concrete sander. If the grease and dirt or the old paint layer has been removed, the surface must be dried and made free of dust.
The application of a primer:
In order to achieve a good adhesion of the final floor coating, the bare pre-treated concrete floor must first be treated with a special adhesive primer. Our consultants often prescribe our epoxy primer for this phase, the MAVROX EP PRIMER 2C. This primer can ideally be used to reinforce the adhesion of epoxy and polyurethane floor coatings or cast floors!
Finishing with a high-quality top layer:
Depending on the degree of load, a top layer is selected that is applied on top of the primer. Our consultants can offer excellent support in selecting the best solution. To provide good resistance against moderate to medium loads, our MAVROX EP COATING 2C (an epoxy floor coating) in 1 or 2 layers is sufficient on top of the applied primer. Is the floor heavily loaded? Then you choose more quickly to apply a polyurethane top layer, such as our MAVROX PU TOPCOAT 1C.
