86 MAY 2015 COATINGSPROMAG.COM Tech Tricks By Tim Seay, Owner of Decorative Concrete of Virginia Squeegee Switch W hen coating a foor that has a wav y or uneven surface, you have to be careful not to leave too much material puddled in the low spots on the foor. A standard 2-foot-wide (61 cm) squeegee will ride over the high spots on a foor and never touch the lower areas. Tis results in using more product on the foor than is necessary. To remedy this, switch to a 12-inch (31 cm) or 16-inch (41 cm) window squeegee. Te shorter span on the blade allows it to reach the lower areas in the foor, which lets you spread the epoxy in a more even rate. Once the epoxy is spread with the window squeegee, back roll it like any standard high-solids epoxy foor.
