Floor Surface Preparations

What is the best method of preparation for painting a concrete floor?
New concrete floors can be prepared either by diamond grinding, or etching with Hydrochloric Acid. One hour after acid etching, we recommend that the concrete floor is thoroughly waterblasted to remove the fine dust and silt, resulting in a clean and slightly textured finish. Allow to dry before coating with Epotread 1000.
Painted floor surfaces are normally best prepared with diluted OmniWash detergent and a thorough scrub, then rinse twice with clean water.
Diamond grinding is the best method of preparation in most situations, as the grinding effectively removes any surface contaminants like oil and any spills of paint, glue etc. Regis Coatings can usually recommend a professional floor grinding contractor in your area.
