Crack repair before you apply epoxy coating
We receive at least three e-mails a week from home-owners and businesses that have installed an epoxy coating and now have problems with cracks that they pre-filled.
Epoxy coatings do not like urethane, acrylic, cement based or silicone crack filler products. They will all fail (pop-out).
Therefore it is imperative that you use an epoxy based crack, joint or void filler prior to coating with an epoxy floor coating.
If you want a really good selection of these products check out: http://legacyindustrial.net/cart/crackjoint-fillers-c-6.html
The gel crack filler carried by Legacy Industrial is the easiest to use.
