Methods of Surface Preparation Before Applying Flooring

 

Grinding under a stainless steel tank
Steel-shot blast machines preparing a concrete floor

 

Degrease
To remove grease and oil from substrate.

Acid Etch
Older technology; used to neutralize concrete. Concrete is an alkaline material and by acid etching, the floor is neutralized.

Shotblast
Dust-free removal of old floor coatings; used on new concrete to clean and roughen for maximum flooring adhesion.

Grind
Hard-to-reach areas (around columns, equipment legs, perimeter walls, etc.) where the shotblaster can’t reach are hand ground with vacuum shrouded 4” to 7” grinders or TMI’s walk behind diamond grinder unit with 5 independent rotating heads is used for old floor coating removal. This unit is ideal for large (greater than 3,000 sq. ft. ) concrete floors to remove mastics, thin-set, heavy mil coatings and high spots. It has a variable speed drive which is especially helpful when the floor has been previously coated.

Machine Sand
Large, walk-behind 20-30-inch sanding discs with varying degrees of coarseness are used to prepare concrete substrates.
