One Day Stain Flooring System
One Day Stain is completely proprietary and changes the way staining is done. There is nothing that produces comparable results. It is a moneymaker for installers. One day stain can be used to create a huge variety of effects from a distinctly speckled look to a fully marbleized floor depending on when secondary colors are applied. One Day stain can be applied as an opaque or translucent coating depending on color selection. iCoat Products make living spaces beautiful.
Here is a link to our online step by step training.
We provide a simple 4 step process to upgrade your old floors to make them beautiful.
Prepare your floor for the One Day Stain application. Remove all debris, glue, and carpet tacks. Use iCoat Patch & Fill or Crack RX to fill holes in the existing concrete and smooth with a trowel. When dry, sand or grind rough areas. Remove dust with a vacuum and then mop to clean with iCoat Maintain to remove dust particles on the floor.
Apply iCoat U528 Primer/Stain Urethane tinted any color starting with a white or black base. It can be rolled or sprayed on and it penetrates concrete surfaces to create an excellent bond.
Now for the color design. Add the color of choice, iCoat Dispersion, Acrylic, or SuperStain in a variety of ways; spray, roll, or speckle. Colors can be mixed in water or in our iCoat U528 Urethane.
You now have a choice of topcoats from iCoat U2112, a high-strength, single-component urethane topcoat. It is breathable with standard moisture. 2112 is fast drying and can be applied in one coat or two as necessary. Typically it is ready for foot traffic within an hour of application. MI Epoxy is a crystal-clear, industrial-grade epoxy that can be used as a topcoat in situations like garages, restaurant kitchens, mechanic shops, airplane hangars, or wherever top-notch chemical resistance is required.
To keep the floor looking great over time it can have one or more coats of Renew applied with a microfiber cloth. Renew is a sacrificial, maintainable coating that can be reapplied at any time after mopping to produce a high sheen.
One Day Stain Advantages
One Day Stain is not reactive and therefore produces a consistent effect every time even over completely different slab colors, patchwork, or cracks. It can be done in any color including white which is very trendy right now.
One Day Stain is also ready for traffic in a few hours and thus is a candidate for overnight return to service for establishments that do not close their doors. One Day Stain products have almost no VOCs and meet all Leed Platinum standards. It is so non-toxic that it can be used while a business is open without creating harm to patrons allowing a quick return to service.
Other advantages are that it can be done in any color or combination of colors. One Day stain is not dependent on the concrete being consistent in adjacent slabs as it masks irregularities, patchwork, and even completely different colors of concrete.
