PHASE 1: SURFACE PREPARATION

  • STEP 1 - SURFACE REPAIR

    HOLES : You should repair with hydraulic cement. We recommend use “Rapid Set” products.

    CRACKS & CONTROL JOINTS: Repair and fill them with an appropriated epoxy filler.

    CONTRUCTION JOINTS & COLD JOINTS: Must be honored. We recommend use appropriate metal dividers.

  • STEP 2 - CONCRETE GRINDING

    Grind the concrete floor with metal diamond #30/40 to profile the concrete and clean it for any glue, paint, thin set and residual.

    Vacuum the area and clean it with alcohol.

  • STEP 3 - LEVELING

    For surfaces that require leveling or extensive repair more than 1/4” thickness, we recommend to use self-leveling ULTRAPLAN  underlayment or similar for interior floors. And for exterior floor MAPECEM 102 or similar. Read specs for the right priming, mixing and installation.
