Coating wood floor with epoxy coatings for AA Patchworks

Recently, we (Legacy Industrial) were approached by "AA Patchworks" with a unique floor substrate, wood. AA Patchworks supplies custom embroidered promotional items. They have expanded their business to a new location in Jefferson, NJ. They needed a larger space to accommodate additional personnel and machinery.

The company's maintenance staff accepted the challenge to transform the new space from outdated and dreary to exceptional!!

We performed a site visit and made our product recommendations as follows:
  1. Epoxy Based HD-139 Primer(1) coat at 15 mils thick
  2. Legacy Industrial's SD , (1) coat at 20 mils thick
Wood floors present two obstacles to floor coatings. They move and they have seams/cracks everywhere!! Wood floors will shrink and expand with changes in relative humidity and temperature. In order to combat this we started with a single primer coat of our HD-139 Flexible Primer. This product will flex slightly as the wood floor moves over time and bridged the cracks nicely. We topcoated with the SD. This product has excellent hiding properties, flows easy and again has a very low smell. This was applied at maximum thickness, which really hid the many imperfections that the wood floor offered.
  1. AA Patchworks owner, Mr. Frank Wagenhoffer commended the performance of the products and had this to say, "Thank you for the high quality floor coatings, guidance and professionalism, we saved at least 60% of the cost of a professionaly installed polymer floor by doing this ourselves, results were outstanding".
