How to make epoxy flooring and 3D epoxy flooring

Introduction:
Epoxy flooring is one of the most beautiful decorations in the home processing. Epoxy floors are designed to show the floors in a brilliant, light-colored manner that gives attention to its modern designs. It is easy and quick to install and prevents cracks in concrete floors.
So in this project, we will learn together how to create epoxy flooring and step by step all the way to the end.This work is general and is not dedicated to a specific quality or form such as the creation of 3D epoxy flooring and other shapes, so that the idea reaches the professionals and beginners in this filed, and later we will address each type and draw it on its own.
 

Step 1 : Materials & Tools

 Materials : 
Epoxy 
Epoxy sealer
Epoxy paste for flooring
Color additives

 Tools : 
A paste knife
Drills
Mixer Drills
Bucket
Broom
Sealer roller
Foam Roller for Ultra-Smooth Surfaces
Adhesive tape
Squeegee 

Spiked Roller


Step 2 : Processing and cleaning floor

Before you start working with epoxy, prepare the cement floor as follows:
Place the adhesive tape under the sides of the walls to protect the walls from epoxy.
Open the cracks in the floor using the rocket and remove the weak areas from the concrete floor, Then clean the floor well from dust, oil and grease.
Use a good floor cleaner to clean the floor, then let it dry thoroughly before the next step.

Step 3 : Concrete floor treatment

After opening the cracks and cleaning, use the epoxy sealer to reinforce these areas in preparation for the next step.
The epoxy sealer is used on floors to strengthen it and increase its ability to withstand epoxy without the problems resulting from having a strong surface on a weak surface, and also for good cleaning.
 

Step 4 : Fill the cracks with the paste

After coating the cracks with the epoxy  sealer , fill the cracks and voids in the floor with epoxy paste until you get a surface free of deformities.
Use the paste with subtlety,until you can leveling the paste with the rest of the surface level.Then leave the floor until the paste is dry and fixed.
 

Step 5 : Epoxy Sealer Paint

Now paint the floor with an epoxy Sealer, use the sealer roller in the paint well in paint and distribution on the entire floor.
Then leave the soil until it completely dry after 1 hours to 3 hours.
 

Step 6 : Processing of epoxy

Prepare and prepare epoxy paint, epoxy usually comes from two different containers, mix them well, use the drill and mixer to make it easier for you to mix them together.
Add your favorite color while processing epoxy.

Step 7 : Epoxy casting

After processing the epoxy material and the required color, we come to the stage of placing epoxy on the floor.
In this work, I made an epoxy on the floor in a random way without looking at graphics or shapes on the floor.
Hold the bucket and pour the epoxy on the floor, try to make each area enough quantity to cover the rest of the floor.
Then spread the epoxy all over the floor using a paint roller, distribute the material to cover each of the working areas well.


Step 8 : Stage of air discharge from the ground

After replying the epoxy material and covering the entire floor well, use the pointed roller to discharge the air from the air bubbles inside the material resulting from the individual substance.
Use the Roll back and forth until the entire air bubbles are removed.
Then leave work for 12 hours.
 

Step 9 : Remove the adhesive tape

After finishing, remove the adhesive strip from the bottom of the walls.


Step 10 : Done

Finally the floor is sealed with a transparent  PU sealer from PU Sealer gloss is used.
 The sealer is hard-wearing and provides the floor with long-term protection against scratches and friction damage. The last layer of sealer should have hardened about 12 hours after drying, before the floor can be walked on.
And this is the random ground with brilliant luster.
