FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Pro Specs Polymères

1 – Q. How do you clean epoxy, polyurea and other polymer floors?

A. With hot water and vinegar in a 4:1 ratio.

2 – Q. After a polymer floor installation, how long do I have to wait before using the floor again?

A. Between 24 and 48 hours.

3 – Q. Is an epoxy, polyurea or other polymer floor non-slip?

A. It is non-slip when it is dry but not when it is wet. It can be made more non-slip by adding quartz sand to the top layer.

4 – Q. How long does it take to install a residential epoxy coating?

A. Some installations take just one day, such as flaked polyurea epoxy garage floors, while others can take up to four days, such as metallic epoxy basement floors.

5 – Q. Should I wash the floor before you install our epoxy coating?

A. No, washing isn’t required. We will grind the entire surface of your concrete floor before installing your epoxy coating.

6 – Q. Will cracks in the concrete floor remain visible after installation of an epoxy floor or other polymer coating?

A. No, not at all. We seal all cracks in the floor, and they won’t show up after installing the concrete coating.

7 – Q. Can an epoxy coating be installed on a heated concrete floor?

A. Yes, absolutely. Epoxy floors are very heat tolerant.

8 – Q. Will an epoxy, polyurea or other polymer floor lose its lustre over time?

A. Yes, to a certain extent, depending on usage and the cause of abrasion.

9 – Q. Can I use salt to melt ice on balconies, steps, sidewalks and other structures with a flaked polyurea epoxy coating?

A. Yes, absolutely. Flaked polyurea epoxy coatings are resistant to calcium chloride.

10 – Q. Will an exterior flaked polyurea epoxy coating turn yellow over time?

A. No, flaked polyurea epoxy coatings are resistant to ultraviolet rays. That’s guaranteed!
