Mixing Instructions 

Optional: Vertical surfaces may need two coats with two broadcasts for proper coverage so if you choose to coat vertical surfaces the first coat should be performed before coating the flat deck surfaces. The second coat on the vertical surfaces can be performed when coating the flat surfaces.  

Note (It is not necessary to broadcast vertical surfaces it is for appearance only). 

2 coats of vertical surfaces ¼ mixed gallon 

9 ounces of Part “B” Activator/Hardener (1 part by volume) 22 ounces of Part “A” Resin (2.3 parts by volume) 

Follow Steps 2-9 using recommended ratios for vertical surfaces above. Again, this will do for the first coat, 2nd coat will be performed when coating the remainder of the deck following steps 2-9 below.  

Note: If you apply coatings and flake within 15 minutes (to rejection coverage) may be acceptable with one application  

____Step 2: Rinse and dry the large mixing bucket (which held all kit contents) with a clean rag prior to mixing. Install the supplied mixing tool into a high-speed drill. Apply protective plastic onto a 10’ X 10’ area where mixing is to be performed (not on the deck coating surface). 

____Step 3: Install spike shoes.  Mix Part “A” of Deck Coat in its original bucket for 2 minutes 

____Step 4: Into the large, cleaned mixing bucket, pour 1/2-gallon Part “B” ACTIVATOR/ HARDENER by volume.  

____Step 5: INTO THE SAME OUTER MIXING BUCKET, pour 1-gallon pre-mixed contents of deck coat Part “A” RESIN by volume. 

Note: Mixing 1 gallon Part A and ½ gallon Part B equals mixed 1.5 gallon. For smaller mixes, the actual mixing ratio is 1 part by volume of Part B Activator/Hardener to 2.3 parts of Part A Resin. 

Example for smaller batches: 

If mixing in smaller batches using a measuring cup/bucket, please refer to these guidelines: 19 ounces of Part “B” Activator/Hardener (1 part by volume) 44 ounces of Part “A” Resin (2.3 parts by volume) 

____Step 6: Mix thoroughly with the mixing tool for 2 minutes paying close attention to mixing all around the buckets sides and raising and lowering with the mixing tool.  

Note: Mixing must be very thorough (2 minutes), or the coating will not cure and clean up, and removal of the uncured epoxy will be costly and very time consuming. Do not wipe the sides of the mixing bucket between mixes or after the final mix as there may be residual unmixed epoxy. The residual epoxy in the mixing bucket will not adversely affect the future epoxy mixes. 


Minimum Coating thickness: 

1.5-gallon half batch- 12.5’x10’ section. (3/4-gallon batch-6.25’x10’ per mix) Back roll in opposite direction a second time 10 minutes after first rolled application and prior to step 8. 

____Step 7: Dip into the bucket directly using the supplied Roller Bucket Screen. Starting in the farthest corner using the supplied kit brush cut in where necessary and in an even coat to the coverage detailed below.  

Please Note: With the mixed coating you have 20-25 minutes working time at 70 degrees F (lower at higher temps). 

Repeat steps 4-7 for second mix. Chip Broadcast instructions 

____Step 8: Apply Flake/Chips by throwing the flakes into the wet coating, only flake a section after the deck area looks satisfactory as once you flake the deck you will not be able to re-back roll again. The flake chips should be broadcasted until there are little or no wet spots (rejection). It is important that you take your time to broadcast, do not use too many flakes in certain areas, the goal is to walk with spike shoes around and apply all the supplied flake to the wet epoxy completely having enough flakes to cover the whole area. 

Note: If multiple special-order solid color flake chips are not premixed together, do so before flaking the floor. Vertical surfaces may take two applications for proper coverage. 

____Step 9. After 8-12 hours remove flakes from the floor by sweeping and vacuuming all remaining flake chips. A power blower should be used as the last step.  

Next Step: Poly 300 Instructions 

Do not install in direct sunlight. It is best to install it in the evening hours as the sun is going down and it’s cooling while the Poly is curing. Humidity should be lower than 80%.  

WARNING: Wear protective gloves, clothing, eyes, and protection when using this product. Proper ventilation is required for use. See the SDS sheet for more information, available at 

Install spike shoes.  

Note: Mix ratio is 1 to 1 by volume 

____Step 10:  

Pour .5-gallon (Half of Part “A”) contents of Part “A” Poly 300 into the large clean black container. 

____Step 11:   Pour .5-gallon (Half of Part “B”) contents of Part “B” Poly 300 into the large clean black container. 

____Step 12:  Mix thoroughly for 2 minutes  

____Step 13:  Dip into the black 3-gallon bucket directly using the supplied Roller Bucket Screen. Starting in the farthest corner using the supplied kit brush cut in where necessary.  

Minimum Coating thickness: 

Dip the roller cover into the roller pan or bucket screen and roll out an approximate four’ x 4’ area. Roll back and forth until completely even throughout that area before moving on to the next area. THE MORE YOU BACK ROLL THE MORE EVEN THE CLEAR COAT WILL BE.  

Repeat steps 10-13 for the second half until complete. 

____Step 14:  

After the second section is rolled, go back and re-back roll entire deck completely in opposite direction   

If you desire to have aluminum oxide nonskid added to the deck broadcast aluminum oxide non-skid over the deck in lesser amounts (only in the previous section which have been back rolled a 2nd time). Taking a pinch amount apply by throwing the non-skid into the air a minimum of 5’ or higher.  

Note: Aluminum oxide will make the deck more slip resistant but will make it harder to clean; it should be used according to your desired needs. non-skid additive is industry standard and accepted means for creating a proper recommended OSHA 0.5 COEFFECIENT FRICTION slip resistant non-skid surface.
