Commercial concrete Painting

Painting concrete floors can seems easy but there are certain things that you need to know about concrete to do it successfully. ICS paints roughly 2-3 million sq.ft. of concrete floors per year. The first thing you need to have a handle on is the moisture content of your concrete floor and there are a couple of simple test to figure that out. You can tape a piece of poly to the floor using duct tape and leave it down for 2-3 days. If you have a lot of water droplets on the back of the poly you may have high moisture. You can test using calcium chloride tablets, a delmhorst meter or a humidity meter.

Assuming you don’t have high moisture preparation is 75% of any good concrete painting job. Preparation methods range from scrubbing, acid etching, shotblasting, diamond grinding and scarifying. Each of these methods leave a different and more aggressive profile and you should choose each with your final painting product in mind.

The right product can be the most important selection in getting your painting job right. Choices range from sealers, water based acrylics, water based epoxies, 100% solids epoxies to high solid urethanes. Sorting through all of these choices is best determined by analyzing your needs and your budget. ICS designs custom solutions for 100’s of customers every year. We can help you walk through your projects needs and help you select the right product for your job.

Mixing, rolling and job staging are also important to achieve the best results. ICS has done over 50, 000, 000 sq.ft. of painting and we can help you determine the right preparation, products and methods to make your concrete painting job come out professionally.
