Extremely high vapor transmissions require the team to apply an epoxy primer to improve the application. The technicians will apply up to three coats of the primer. If the floor remains wet, epoxy will not adhere to it, and the property owner will need to choose another option.
Next, the team must test the temperatures in the space, and the space cannot be too humid. The test determines if the floor is the right choice for an epoxy coating. If the temperatures are too high or too low during the application, it could cause bubbling of the coating before it cures properly. Bubbling could also lead to peel and blushing of the coating. Temperatures that are too cool could present proper leveling of the floor.
