Installed: Epoxy Coatings at Bob Davidson Ford Lincoln (Parksville, Baltimore County), Maryland – near Towson and Baltimore.
Upgrading the Customer Drive-Thru with Decorative Chip Coatings
Earlier in 2014, our Baltimore operations installed commercial epoxy coatings in the new customer service offices at Bob Davidson Ford Lincoln. The dealership was undergoing significant upgrades to their facility. Dave, our Maryland Sales Manager, had already worked with this customer for coatings back in their service department and also for garage floor coatings installed in several staff member’s homes.
Now, we were tasked with giving their customer write-up & drive-thru lanes a flooring face-lift. That area’s concrete floors were worn, segmented, cracked and unattractive at best. Their staff picked a 1/4″ decorative chip blend that works well with their corporate brands – our Union chip blend.
Concrete Floor Repair & Surface Preparation
Prior to these two days, our crews spent several evenings cutting and filling all the cracks and joints with thixotropic epoxy paste – a formulation we do on site to meet the needs of the repairs.
Commercial Coatings Installation
Floor coatings took place over two days. On Friday, our crews completed final floor touch-ups and followed with a self-priming, pigmented epoxy & full broadcast of the Union 1/4″ acrylic chips. With 6 installers on site, the coatings took only 2 hours from start to finish.
Saturday, our team returned to clean up all excess chips and get ready to apply the clear, top coat of polyaspartic urethane. This ultra glossy (Gardner Color Scale of 1), clear material was applied with a broadcast of aluminum oxide – which promotes increased wet & dry slip resistance and wear-ability.
Since the coatings cure quickly, the dealership staff could walk on the coatings within a few hours and re-opened the customer service area to vehicle traffic on Monday morning.
