The grinding process uses course diamond blades that cut through the top layer. We start the grinding process with the appropriate grit depending on the surface. Frequently, we use course diamonds to remove carpet glue, mastic, paint, or epoxy coatings. These will range from 16 to 80 grit. This level of grinding can also be part of a floor preparation system if you are considering a self-leveling concrete overlay or epoxy coating. This grinding level will also expose the aggregate in the concrete. This grinding level removes the top layer of approximately 1/32 to 1/16th inch though it is possible to remove more of the surface.
If you’re new to the world of epoxy coatings and wondering which system is right for your use, this guide will provide you with the basics to help you choose the right coating and application services. Epoxy floor coatings are more than floor paint. They are engineered by chemists for a variety of uses. There are many types ranging from thin build floor paints for low traffic uses like the kits you find for the DIY applicator at most home improvement stores. Epoxy coatings are also used in tough environments in warehouses, labs, and even marine decking. Epoxies are two (2) component products including a resin and hardener. When mixed together, the chemicals cross-link like a chain creating durability and adhesion to concrete and metal.
