    Q&A


    Why do I need a protective coating on my garage floor?
    Unprotected concrete floors will wear, be stained by oils and fluids, and be damaged by the corrosive effects of snow and ice-melting chemicals such as rock salt. ROCKSOLID FLOORS® coating system protects concrete from wear because it is actually harder and more durable than the concrete itself. ROCKSOLID FLOORS® POLYUREA is so dense that oils and fluids cannot penetrate its surface to soak in and cause staining. ROCKSOLID FLOORS® is impervious to the corrosive effects of rock salt. ROCKSOLID FLOORS® beautifies your floor while prolonging the life of the concrete itself.

    What is ROCKSOLID FLOORS® and why is it better than other floor sealing products?
    ROCKSOLID FLOORS® is a two-component product that when mixed together forms a 100% solids POLYUREA floor sealer. ROCKSOLID FLOORS® is superior to epoxies, urethanes, paints, and other coatings because POLYUREAS form a harder, denser, more abrasion resistant film than any of them. ROCKSOLID FLOORS® is superior to any other coatings because it is made from the most durable coating available – POLYUREA.

    Why does the floor have to be prepared for the ROCKSOLID FLOORS® kit?
    Floor preparation is crucial to the proper installation of ROCKSOLID FLOORS® . The ROCKSOLID FLOORS® coating system will not be able to penetrate and bond to concrete in areas where heavy oil or fluid contamination has occurred. To remedy these areas, use a full concentration of ROCK SOLID CPC DEGREASER prior to etching the floor. The use of ROCKSOLID FLOORS® SAFE ETCH SOLUTION will help to remove some minor contaminants but it’s main purpose is to profile the concrete to provide an anchor for adhesion.

    Can I put ROCKSOLID FLOORS® over pre-existing paints or other coatings?
    While it is always best to apply ROCKSOLID FLOORS® to freshly cleaned and etched concrete, the revolutionary Micro-Bond technology allows for ROCKSOLID FLOORS® POLYUREA to bond to previously coated floors. To do so, first check to guarantee that the existing coating is adhered to the floor. If so you can simply sand the floor to etch the surface, clean it with a solvent, and apply ROCKSOLID FLOORS® over the top. If the existing coating seems to be delaminating from the surface or failing in any way, then it is recommended to remove it using mechanical means such as shot-blasting or diamond grinding prior to applying ROCKSOLID FLOORS® .

    What is the purpose of the ROCKSOLID FLOORS® decorative chip?
    The decorative chip serves to enhance the appearance of the surface. Two different chip blends are included in each kit, allowing the customer to choose their decorative look. The two chip blends can also be combined for a truly original finish. The chip blends were chosen to accentuate the color of the floor and also provide a distraction to the naked eye – dirt and debris will be less visible.

    What will hot tires do to ROCKSOLID FLOORS® ?
    Nothing. Tires heated from normal driving will not cause delamination the ROCKSOLID FLOORS® finish.

    Do I have to recoat with ROCKSOLID FLOORS® every year?
    No, ROCKSOLID FLOORS® ’ hard, durable surface will last for many years under normal circumstances.
    
    Do I need to apply a clear coat over the ROCKSOLID FLOORS® Coating?
    While it is not necessary to apply a clear topcoat to ROCKSOLID FLOORS® , we do offer a high gloss POLYUREA topcoat that can enhance the overall look of the floor coating. Sold separately, this topcoat will help to lock in the decorative chip, provide even more abrasion resistance, and increase the warranty from 3 to 5 years for the total installed system.

    Is the ROCKSOLID FLOORS® coating slippery when wet?
    No, the coating will not be slippery when wet. However if you wish to add an additional level of protection against slipping, you may add additional anti-slip aggregate.

    Can I get additional decorative chips for my ROCKSOLID FLOORS® coating?
    Yes, the ROCKSOLID FLOORS® kit comes with a sufficient amount of decorative chip to complete a partial broadcast floor. Additional decorative chips are available for purchase on our website along with many other helpful items.

    Will I be able to coat and/or apply the decorative chips to the vertical surfaces in my garage (stemwalls, curb, stairs)?
    Yes, this is one of the many benefits of the ROCKSOLID FLOORS® coating systems. Because our POLYUREA primer / basecoat material is thicker and dries faster than any epoxy product available, coating of vertical surfaces, stairs, curb block, and sheetrock is a breeze. The coating will hold strong and not run down the vertical surface during curing. You will be able to broadcast chip onto to these surfaces to seamlessly match the floor!!

    What are the decorative chips made of?
    Our decorative chips are made of vinyl. Unlike other coating systems available who use acrylic chips, our vinyl chips are designed to lay down flatter, soak in better, and adhere better to the coating system. This leaves you with a flatter floor that the chips are embedded in, thus eliminating peeling or flaking over time.

    If my garage has windows, will the ROCKSOLID FLOORS® coating fade or change colors?
    No, only long-term, direct UV exposure will affect the coating.

    Do I have to repair the cracks in my floor prior to installing ROCKSOLID FLOORS® ?
    Yes, repairing the cracks will not only improve the overall look of the floor but will help to keep contaminants, oil, grease, etc. from becoming trapped in the floor. Cracks need to be cleaned out and filled using ROCKSOLID FLOORS® FAST PATCH prior to coating.
