Epoxy coatings can be easily made into anti-skid floor surfaces. There are two
ways of doing this:
1.Full Broadcast System
material with brush, roller or squeegee. While the epoxy is still wet, follow
with liberal broadcasting or seeding of aggregate until no wet spots can be
seen on the epoxy.
Remove unbounded excess aggregate by broom or vacuum
cleaner when dry (usually the next day).
Apply thin second coat of
epoxy with squeegee or roller making sure to slightly expose aggregate.
2. Light Broadcast System
Apply material by brush,
roller or squeegee. While applying epoxy, lightly seed or broadcast sand on to
the wet coating and go over it with the brush or roller. Put as much sand or
aggregate as needed to get the skid proof surface desired.
