Putting a new epoxy coating on your cement floor is an excellent investment in your workspace. It would be silly to spend money on the coating product, but neglect the preparation of the surface beforehand. However, there is some preparation you need to do first. When applying a concrete coating, you will be faced with a decision of either shot blasting or diamond grinding your concrete. Here at Florida Epoxy, our team of professionals is here to make sure you have all the details when deciding on a new commercial epoxy floor. 


Take Advantage of Shot Blasting

Shot blasting is a very commonly used method of leveling the epoxy floor or preparing a concrete floor for treatment. Shot blasting concrete treatment is mostly used in the industrial or commercial environment. It is also used to level the surface of roads and driveways. The shot blasting method is an old one, and there are many services in Miami FL that can help you in concrete shot blasting, grinding, or steel shot blasting. Shot blasting treatment can remove 1mm of epoxy and 2 to 3mm screed concrete to balance the level of your floors.


Shot blasting technique is rarely seen for any residential floor leveling because it leaves a roughness on the floor. Such types of shot-blasted floors are ideal for the rough use such as driveways of industries where heavy loaded trucks are to be used or busy traffic roads. Clean and smooth-surfaced roads are unsuitable for vehicles due to the increased risk of tire slipping. The shot lasting services use shot blasters, which are walk-behind machines, to remove extra mortar from the floors to level them. Wheel blasting and air blasting are also the techniques used in shot blasting.
