Oregon Coast...This was one of the funnest epoxy floor projects we've done in a while. The client chose the colors to be used, but gave us the artistic freedom to do something really unique. We love that! Our clients, the new owners had recently purchased the home overlooking Nehalem Bay in Wheeler, Oregon. The floor itself is a concrete slab on the upstairs, interior of the home. The three individual slabs were seperated by a beam embedded between the areas and acted as a control joint. The floors also had radiant heat. The slabs had originally been stained and sealed, but over the years had deteriorated and were suffering from extensive cracking throughout. The client, the owner of several pets, had concerns that cracks in the slab could trap pet urine and in the end result in a stinky mess.

To solve that potential problem the clients opted to install a seamless epoxy floor, but they wanted it to look cool too. In step Armortech. After grinding this floor to manfacturers specs, we filled the cracks with Elite Cretes  MERCAP-445™. A 100% solids, low viscosity, structural epoxy adhesive designed for repairing cracks in concrete that is suitable for both above grade and below grade applications.

After which, we installed two coats of a solid white epoxy base coat and followed up with a decorative metallic epoxy coat consisting of four metallic colors, copper, coffee, brass and charcoal pearl. Once the decorative coat had cured, we sanded and applied a seal coat over the exposed wooden beams. Once cured we then flooded the entire floor including the beams in a single coat of clear E100-VR1™ UV Resistant Epoxy, essentially embedding both the decorative coat and the wooden beams beneath a single, seamless coat of epoxy. VR1 clear epoxy is an excellent protective coating, is 100% solids, UV resistant, low viscosity, clear, high gloss epoxy coating system specifically designed for incidental interior exposure to UV attack. It is not effected by high humidity, is resistant to microbial growth and fungus, and provides exceptional hardness to provide years of service. Once cured, about 8 hours, the Armortech crew applied a final slip-resistant topcoat of AUS-V. AUS-V is a high quality, extremely durable, clear, two component, protective urethane coating for epoxy coatings such as the E100™ Series of epoxies.

In the end everyone won. Our clients got the seamless, and uniquely beautiful floor they wanted. And, we got to have a great time exploring the beautiful, small towns of Wheeler and Nehalem, all while letting loose our creativity. Good times ;)

Beautiful Blue & Charcoal Pearl Epoxy Garage Floor with Matching Epoxy Baseboards Oregon Coast

Wheeler, Oregon...A few days ago, the Armortech crew wrapped up this beautiful blue and charcoal pearl epoxy garage floor on the Oregon Coast. The garage floor in this project had radiant heat flooring and the concrete garage floor also had extensive cracking, far more than we typically see on the average garage floor. After grinding this floor to manfacturers specs, we filled the cracks with Elite Cretes  MERCAP-445™. A 100% solids, low viscosity, structural epoxy adhesive designed for repairing cracks in concrete and as an anchor bolt adhesive suitable for above grade and below grade applications. After which, we installed a solid black epoxy base coat and followed up with Elite Cretes E100-PT1™ for the decorative coat (EC Blue & Charcoal Pearl). E100-PT1 is a 100% solids, low viscosity, water clear, non-shrink, two-component epoxy designed for a wide variety of applications. E100-PT1™ has excellent physical and chemical resistant properties, which are perfectly suited for garage floor applications. After top coating with AUS-V™, a high quality, extremely durable, clear, two component, protective urethane coating for epoxy coatings such as the E100™ Series epoxies, we got to work on making and installing the matching baseboards.

In the end, this was both a fun and creative project we here at Armortech are happy to have had the opportunity to be involed in! And, honestly what could be more "beachy" than a beautiful, ocean blue epoxy floor!

Epoxy countertops are lightweight, durable, resistant to an astounding array of chemical compounds, and are so non-porous that bacteria can't find a place to settle in where your cleaning sponge can't reach. These facts can make them a wise choice for not only your home but also for many business types such as restaurants, bars, hotels and cafes, amongst others. However, as durable as it may be, your new epoxy countertop will require proper care to keep them in tip top shape and to maintain the very high luster they are so well known for.

Below we have listed the best practices in caring for your new epoxy countertops. In most cases, your epoxy countertop will have been sealed and protected beneath a layer of one of many various types of FDA food safe topcoats. Please speak with your coating specialist at Armortech Resurfacing regarding the proper care of the type of topcoat applied to your specific countertop.

  1. Never use abrasive materials to clean your epoxy countertop. This point can’t be emphasized strongly enough. To put it plainly, abrasive cleaners, tools, and scrub pads will dull and damage the epoxy surface. That may be great if your intent is to have a matte type finish, not so good if you desire the shine epoxy surfaces are so well known for. The best way to clean an epoxy countertop is to simple wipe the surface down when needed with a sponge, soft cloth, or chamois cloth and one of the following cleaners, soft soaps and liquid detergents such as Dawn, Joy, and Ivory, etc., Simple Green, Formula 409, Fantastic, Dow, Windex, Bon Ami, Scrub Free, and Mr. Clean.

    DO NOT USE: Vinegar, Citrus Cleaners, Bleach, Ajax, Comet, abrasive scratch pads, harsh abrasives, steel wool, or undiluted ammonia.

    Never use cleaning compounds with citrus or acid in them. Citrus cleaners and vinegar will break down the epoxy catalyst and must be avoided. The use of a steam cleaner is also not recommended. Steam cleaners can cause excessive heat shock which may cause blistering and subsequent adhesion failure.

     
  2. Wipe up spills immediately. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so clean up those spills before they have a chance to dry or even stain the surface. You can use any soft cloth, towel, or rag and for extra gentle cleaning try using a chamois cloth.
     
  3. Use a mild soft soap for stubborn cleaning. This should be more than enough to get rid of any food, light dirt, or grime that finds its way onto your countertops without being so harsh as to wear down the surface in any way. If you are trying to save money or would prefer a more natural cleaning solution you can also use a clear ammonia and water mix (at 2-3 ounces of ammonia per gallon of warm water to wipe the surface down. Please note, do not allow the ammonia and water to stand on the epoxy surface for more than a minute or so before wiping off.
     
  4. Do not chop or cut directly on the counter. Use a cutting board instead to avoid scratching or scoring damage.
     
  5. Use mineral oil to restore original shine and luster. It might make some people to shutter to think of pouring oil onto your epoxy countertop, but it can actually be quite beneficial in hiding small surface scratches and restoring the original shine. To accomplish this simply pour a small amount of clear mineral oil (available at most Walmart’s or local pharmacies) on a soft polishing cloth or drizzle a narrow bead across the surface and lightly hand buff and polish to bring back the original luster and hide most minor surface scratches.
     
  6. Accidental Scratch or Scoring damage. Should the countertop surface become heavily scratched or scored by abrasive materials it may be necessary to take additional steps to repair. To accomplish this first clean the surface with an approved cleaning method listed above. Then apply an approved polish or glaze coat to the surface. Zep products work well with our epoxies and can be easily found at Lowes’, and Home Depot or online. Buckeye CastleGuard® is also an excellent wax type product that is most easily found online. When applied routinely these products will not only hide existing scratches, but will also protect the surface from future scratches. Repeated applications building up the thickness of the polish or glaze coat will provide improved scratch resistance. Deep scratches and or gouges that penetrate through the decorative epoxy layer will need professional repair and likely re-coating of the topcoat. Please contact the coating specialists at Armortech Resurfacing, Inc if this should occur.

    Follow these simple steps and keep your epoxy countertops looking great for years to come.

     

Caring for your countertop will take a minimal amount of time, but it will need to be done on a regular basis to keep it shining for many years after the installation. If you have questions feel free to ask your floor coating specialist at Armortech Resurfacing, Inc. to make sure you know and use the right cleaning tools and supplies to clean your particular surface.
