    Geez what a mess. We've covered the epoxy coatings before with sheet vinyl but I can only recall doing it on above grade slabs-----at this same facility actually. We used the Ardex P-82 after sanding the shit out of it and cleaning thoroughly. Now my boss wants to use Koster primer. Seems like it should be OK. But that's all besides the point. This was one hell of a mess today in these labs. Found a big bubble in the epoxy and starting tapping around. The bigshot told us to bust it out and fill it.

    As we tore it the worser it got til it seemed we were digging a hole to China.

    My solution: Call the epoxy floor guys. I don't want to GUESS what went wrong and HOPE my best ideas would work. What a F'n horror story.

    Well it looks like they did epoxy over every kind of flooring there. Epoxy needs to have a opened up porous concrete to stick and it didn't happen there. I was on the Koster site last night reading up on it and if you use that there, you need to shotblast it. No asbestos under there?

    What I see looks like quarry tile and some of that came loose, was patched with WALL MASTIC and the other stuff I simply don't know what it is.

    We never got down to CONCRETE.

    That looks like one of the decision makers of the building needed to be there as this was taken apart. And what's under it, most likely it will be a patch job until this section can be shut down for a holiday time of year and totally replaced.

    I think the pink stuff is the old Armstrong patch that they had. Looks like some tile adhesive under that.

    Pink stuff, was it called s-174? We used a lot of that stuff, we used the s-200, the Portland patch they had whenever we could. Then Ardex feather finish came along and Dependable and Armstrong patches were history.

    That job looks like it really sucks. I don't think I could do it with carpet let alone hard surface.

    Never seen internal/externals done like that before. You cut them all beforehand with a template?. Contact them in ?. Then scribe the main drop to the corner vinyl ?.

    Could you grab some close ups of that in/ex corner set up before and after please. This intrigues me greatly.

    Would be a lot easier to throw some paint chips in that area. :coffee:
