An Epoxy floor coating makes a concrete flooring resistant to spills and stains, abrasions, harsh chemicals and hot tires, extending the beauty and durability for a lifetime. It also makes the concrete easy to clean and maintain using water and a mild (non-filming) detergent, and requires no special maintenance or waxing.

The Lava Flow® Metallic Epoxy gives any floor a custom look since it is formulated to give a unique flow every time it’s used, so no two floors will ever look identical.

To successfully install an Epoxy floor, you need to follow certain steps to prep, install and cure the floor properly.

  • Begin by picking the color and texture that you want to put on your floor and purchase the necessary supplies.
  • Make sure to clean and prep. A clean, dry surface is best for the Epoxy coating. Be sure to read all the instructions included with the Epoxy Flooring kit before beginning.
  • Apply the Direct to Concrete Epoxy Primer to the entire surface of the exposed concrete. This primer uses an advanced wicking system to get deeper, stronger adhesion than other primers on the market.
  • Once the primer is in place, you can apply one coat of the flake by throwing it onto the wet Epoxy flooring until the floor is completely covered. Then you scrape off the loose flakes and are left with a uniform blanket of flake, delivering a beautiful Epoxy floor coating. To apply the Lava Flow metallic Epoxy, wait until the primer is fully cured and apply one of the 4800 Industrial Epoxy with the Metallic pigment mixed in. This gives the floor a smooth, glassy finish with color shifts and a subtle metallic sparkle.
  • Once the Roll on Rock or Lava Flow have fully dried, apply a Polyurea topcoat for added scuff-resistance and gloss. The water-clear, high-gloss and high-build film of the Polyurea provides a beautiful topcoat finish that is extremely scratch resistant and will look great for years. The Polyurea is designed to dry fast. In most cases, you can return the items to your garage several hours after the topcoat has been applied and the car can be parked on it in a day or two.
