Tips for applying epoxy coating in hot weather.

When applying any coating system in warmer weather it is important to remember these key items.

  • Ventilation
  • Humidty
  • Material Temperature
Ventilation.
Your safety is paramount. Read the MSDS and technical data on the material thoroughly. Open windows, doors and wear the proper PPE (personal protective device) for the job. If feeling dizzy or nauseous, stop work and seek medical attention immediately.

Humidity.
This is a concern for epoxy and urethane products. Epoxy can get cloudy if the humidity is too high when it is curing. Some urethanes (moisture cured urethanes) will activate faster as the humidity rises. Read the technical data for acceptable humidity levels.

Material Temperature.
Keep your epoxy and/or urethane material in a relatively cool area (70-75 deg. F) for the 24 hour period leading up to the project. It will help keep your working time in check. Hot epoxy can start to cure prematurely. A pro-installer may even keep his mixing bucket in a cool pan of water to slow the curing process down.

Staining vertical concrete surfaces



We love to take customer applications and use them as topics for this blog. Here is a great one!

A customer in sunny Los Angeles, California started acid staining a concrete wall with an "off the shelf" acid concrete stain. He had a difficult time keeping enough stain on the wall as the concrete was thirsty and kept sucking in the stain, not letting it fizz and etch. He tried excessively applying the stain. However, the more he added the more it ended up running down the wall.

We sent this gentleman our Legacy Industrial's Gelled Acid Stain. The gel factor keeps the stain on the vertical surface long enough for good penetration and etching without the "runs". We know he'll have an easier time getting a nice vibrant color on that wall.

This product is also beneficial for stenciling horizontal surfaces as well.

Concrete sealer for garage floors


More and more customers are creating a simple easy to clean flooring system. This easy to apply product is commonly referred to as "sealer".

Recently, our customer, James from New Mexico applied Legacy Industrial's HD-356VOC. HD-356VOC concrete sealer is a VOC compliant urethane sealer. Useful outside and indoors for dust-proofing concrete surfaces while leaving an attractive and easy to clean sheen. In addition to good chemical and abrasion resistance this useful sealer has very good UV resistance which stops yellowing later.

James's garage is pictured. Please note that he made a repair in the middle and will be sealing that area once the concrete has cured 30 days. James let us know his only complaint is the foot-prints he has to deal with during the repair phase.
