Here are some frequently asked questions (and answers)... If you have a questions about our process or products that is not listed here, send us an email and we'll be happy to answer them for you.

Q: What can we expect from your company in regards to installing an epoxy or polished concrete floor?

A: A proper evaluation of the concrete surface for integrity, proper preparation of the surface, and proper installation per the manufactures' recommended installation rates and methods.

Q: What kind of debris or dust can we expect during preparation and installation?

A: We use state of the art equipment, including a Hepa 3 stage vacuum dust collection system which eliminates 90 plus percent of airborne dust. We try in most cases to grind the concrete dry.

Q: What kind of electric power and lighting do you require?

A: Several 110v 20 amp dedicated plug circuits, 240 single phase 30 amp, 208 3 phase 100 amp, and 480 3 phase 50 amp depending on the equipment to be used on your project. Overhead lighting is a must to give the customer the best possible floor installation.

Q: Are air and floor temperatures a factor?

A: They are for epoxy floors. Recommended temperature during application and curing are at least 65 degrees. For polishing we require that temperatures is at least 45 degrees when we apply the chemicals. A warmer temperature helps the chemicals cure quicker.

Q: For how much time can we expect to be off the floor until its cured?

A: Every situation is different. Epoxy normally for 2 to 3 days, and polishing can be completed in parts to keep your operations up and running. You can get back on a polished floor immediately.

What our customers say about us...


I would like to take the time to mention how we appreciate being introduced to Great Lakes Concrete Restoration the installer, and L&M ConstructionChemicals FGS Permashine Polished Floor System.

Having in the past used ESD epoxy, and VCT ESD tile, we would have to spend several more dollars for the systems for their up keep using ESD waxes to keep our needed ranges of ESD , the following are the true benefits we have seen over a 5 year period with your polished floors.

Using 1-10 as a basis rating, 10 being excellent, please find below:

1. Clean ability rating -9 ( using the FGS cleaner / conditioner a must with a floor scrubber )
2. Light illumination rating - 9
3. ESD rating needed in our plant between 1-4th to, 10-6th with a megohmmeter rating- 9
4. High Traction floor rating - 9
5. Maintenance rating - 9

Summary: Over all a cost reduction for install, up keep, and our floors look better,more importantly, ESD performance has been achieved.

As you know you have also installed this system in our Boston plant. Do to the quality of the polished floor system we will heavily consider using Dale Ballard and Great Lakes Concrete Restoration, and the FGS Permashine Polished Floor System in our new builds, as well as replacing other floor systems we have in our existing facilities.

Thanks again for the quality work, and products, as you have made a believer out of us at Jabil !
