Your epoxy floor could be a 1- 7 coat system (different methods for applying the chips - usually a 1- 4 coat system) Click here for our Garage Coating page for details


IN A NUTSHELL/ PAINT CHIPS IN A GARAGE EPOXY FLOOR : pigmented epoxy base coat. Chips go on top of the wet base coat or in a clear middle coat that is applied over the dry pigmented epoxy base coat. With a chips in a clear middle coat you can back roll over them, coating them top and bottom. The clear middle coat can be either a solvent based polyurethane (Acrylic Poly UV Plus) or a solvent free epoxy (Epoxy Floor Seal). The clear epoxies will yellow in UV. Often another coat of a 2 part poly (same product as above) with UV blockers is then applied over the clear epoxy or clear polyurethane that contains the chips.

-----

Cost per square foot with epoxy base, chips with 100% coverage and 2 coats of clear two part polyurethane is about $1.50 - $2 per square foot. Price drops if chips are used as accent only.


100% chip coverage requires 1 pound of chips per 7 - 10 sf. That said, most folks with a 2 car garage (about 500 SF) usually order 20 pounds of chips. Chips come in custom color blended 10 pound and 55 pound bags. You use the color chart below to pick the colors and percentage of each color you want and then
call in the order.

Oct 07 email tip:

Thanks Paul,

It is very popular in these parts to put flakes about 8 inches up the wall as a seamless extension of the floor – makes cleaning very easy. On digging a little further, it is no different to the broadcasting of the flake on the floor. Wet base coat on the wall first and throw flake in great quantity against the vertical surface (no base coat on the floor at this stage as the pile of flake at the wall floor join will need to be vacuumed up prior to putting epoxy on the floor!!)


How much chips? -  customer gives some feedback  - April 2013:

Here were some stats -- bear in mind that I used quart plastic soup containers and 16 oz plastic beer cups, so my measurements may be off by 10-20%.

10# of 1/4" chips corresponded to roughly 7.5-8 quarts of chips; in other words a 24 oz cup holds roughly 1lb of flakes.

I test-flaked a 25 sq ft floor using 1 qt (i.e 1.3 lbs -- 53 lbs/1000sf) of flakes and got a flake coverage that was somewhere between heavy and rejection,

I then used roughly 3-4 qts (I'll have to go back and weigh the bag to get a more accurate estimate) and aimed for roughly 1 16 oz cup per 50 sq ft, which corresponds to a little heavier than the 'medium' coverage.

 

10 lbs of chips was roughly 8 quarts (I measured).


1 quart of chips on 25 sq ft produced a 'heavy', but not 'full' flake effect (roughly 1.2 lb)
