Garage floors benefit from Quikcrete coatings

Several new products from The Quikcrete Cos. Inc. will be of interest to decorative concrete contractors.

Quikrete Etching Stain provides a multitoned finish that compares with weathered marble, natural stone or marble. It’s available in rich earth tones, including Coffee, Tan and Olive, which are permanently imprinted into the concrete as the etching stain chemically reacts with the concrete. Quikrete Etching Stain High Gloss Sealer delivers a clear, high-gloss topcoat to any exterior surface when applied over Quikrete Etching Stain. The High Gloss Sealer also enhances the durability and color depth of the etched concrete surface.

The Quikrete Tintable Epoxy Garage Floor Coating Kit offers 64 base coating colors and four decorative flake combinations. The Coating Kit leaves a semigloss finish that is twice as strong as concrete and provides unsurpassed durability. Formulated with Bond-Lok technology, the system creates a finished surface and is ready for heavy use and car traffic within 72 hours. It includes a two-part epoxy, an anti-skid additive and an instructional how-to DVD. The epoxy is low-odor and cleans easily with soap and water. As for the Quikrete Color Flakes, they are available in Granite, Sand, Light Gray and Tan, and they combine with the base coats to create hundreds of custom garage floor finishes. The decorative flakes are packaged in an easy-to-use shaker bottle to help ensure uniform application.

Quikrete Premium Clear Epoxy Coating Kit gives a clear, high-gloss topcoat to concrete garage floors when applied after the Epoxy Garage Floor Coating Kit.

Quikrete PowerLoc Jointing Sand is suitable for sweeping into paving stone joints. It stabilizes pavers and is nonstaining. Once placed and dampened, Quikrete PowerLoc Jointing Sand hardens to lock pavers in place. Depending on joint design, the approximate coverage per 50-pound bag varies between 50 to 55 square feet of tumbled pavers or between 85 to 90 square feet of regular pavers.
