2. Repairing holes and cracks
Do you have holes or cracks in your floor? Then no problem. It is important that you first repair with leveling compound (also available in our shop). This has an additional build and smoothed out nicely.
You mix the hardener with the leveling compound and pour it gently with a small bucket and into the cracks or holes. If the resin erasure you cannot possibly update with a squeegee.
After applying the leveling compound you will need four to eight hours to dry. You can then individually leveled surface treated with primer (this is not necessary).
When the floor is dirty and dry, you can start with the primer. The primer ensures that the absorbency of the concrete is reduced and you do not need unnecessary coating. In addition, the primer course for a good adhesion between the concrete and the coating.
It is recommended that a primer in too much time to process related to the temperature evolution of the resin. It is best to not more than one kg at a time. To add the hardener (2:1) to the primer and mixes the whole. Note, both the proportions and mixing are very important for the quality of your floor. This money also for the epoxy floor paint.

Make sure you have no more than 36 hours after applying the primer coating begins. The floor coating mix with the hardener (in the same proportions as in the primer).
With a roller extension pole and make the coating. You make sure you cover all good but not too thick. If the color is still not clear enough to emerge, then you do not have to worry about. You spend half was still to low.
5. Second layer
After the first layer attachment let it dry again. If you want a non-slip floor, you can add it to your second slip powder-coated. This is done during the mixing of the hardener. You add a kilo about 100 grams of non-slip floor paint powder and mix well with a spatula. This gives the floor a rough surface after curing.
This layer will also, even, and opaque (but not too thick) with a roller and extension pole.
After 18 hours (at room temperature), the hardened concrete paint well and used at light loads. After 36 hours it is fully cured and fully taxable. And so you have a tight floor again where you have years of fun!
