Description

Xtreme FX is a 100% solids epoxy that is unlike any epoxy on the market today. Xtreme FX epoxy has a 50-60 minute pot life and is designed for metallic flooring professionals and DIYers alike.

Because of our Xtremely long pot life, our 100% solids flooring epoxy will have much more natural movements. It also helps in giving it a higher than normal 3D effect.

Xtreme FX epoxies resemble a beautifully placed marbled 3D surface.

A metallic floor is created by adding our Metallic 3DFX Pigment powder to Xtreme FX epoxy. Metallic systems are very much considered an artistic creation.

Multiple designs can be constructed depending on the application technique and colors used. Metallic 3DFX Pigment colors can be combined, allowing for unlimited color variations.

Metallic Flooring Tips and Tricks

Once you place your metallic epoxy is poured on the floor, this is where the magic begins. This is where the fun begins!

While there are many ways to install a metallic floor (designs), there really are no wrong ways. Even though the Xtreme FX epoxy has a hefty pot life, it’s suggested to get it on the floor and start moving it around as quickly as possible.

  • Know where you are going to place your flooring epoxy before you mix. Have a plan. You don’t want to try and figure out where you’re going to pour it after you’ve mixed the material. This takes away from your pot life.
  • If possible, turn off the air conditioner or heater. While not always possible, be aware that any flooring epoxy you use will act as a huge sticky trap. Any type of airborne debris will land on your floor. Be sure to keep people (Workers, clients, kids, spouse) from going in and out of doors.
  • Try to mix the Xtreme FX flooring epoxy in an area that’s within close proximity to where it’s going to be used. Many people use the garage as a mixing station… just be sure to keep the garage doors closed.
  • You may have seen a picture on the internet that you’re trying to duplicate. While you may be able to come close, you’ll never match it 100%. Try to create a metallic floor with your own unique design. Don’t get so caught up trying to replicate someone else’s floor that you forget to create something that belongs only to you.
  • The last piece of advice we can give you is the most important thing of all… Have fun! Metallic floors using Xtreme FX flooring epoxy is meant to be easy and fun. Get creative, but have fun doing it. As always, we are here for you. You can call us at any time. If we don’t answer right away, leave a message. We’ll return your call just as soon as possible. Your success is our success!

Mixing

If mixing less than a full kit, mix Part A and Part B separately with a stir stick, or low-speed mixer to ensure uniform distribution of all ingredients. In a clean mixing container, blend 2 Parts A and 1 Part B using a drill mixer for 2-3 minutes. Avoid creating a vortex in the material which could introduce air and/or moisture content to the mixture. Do not mix more than can be applied within the usable pot life time frame. Do not thin Xtreme FX.

For primer coats, mix 1 container of Base Color FX or 1 container (32 oz) of Metallic 3DFX into Part A of each 3 gallons used. Mix for 2-3 minutes or until the color has been thoroughly mixed.

*Coverage Rates

First Coat – Direct to Concrete: 100 – 140 ft per gallon
Second Coat – Over Existing Coating: 80 – 120 ft per gallon
Metallic Coat – Over Existing Coating: 35-50 ft per gallon

*Coverage rates may vary depending upon surface porosity, texture, application method, and prior coating application. Excessive build-up should be avoided.

Unlike most concrete coatings systems, there are no specific install standards on the method of application due to the endless possibilities in color combinations and finishing techniques that can be used to manipulate the visual effect of the Metallic 3DFX pigments in Xtreme FX Epoxy.

Prime Coat: For a 3 Gallon kit, depending on the desired colors, mix either a 16 oz Base Color FX for a solid color prime coat or a 32 oz Metallic 3DFX pigment pack to the Part A Xtreme FX or Base Coat FX epoxy and slowly stir with a drill mixer for 1 – 2 minutes or until the color is thoroughly dispersed. Then add Part B (Xtreme FX or Base Coat FX) and stir slowly for 2 full minutes or until the color is thoroughly mixed. Be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing bucket.

As a final mixing step, we strongly recommend placing the mixed (A and B) material in a clean bucket and mixing for an additional 1-2 minutes.

Application

As a base coat, spread material evenly using a flat or notched squeegee at 100 -140 square feet per gallon and back roll using a shedless 3/8″ nap roller cover. The object is to completely seal off the concrete surface prior to applying the next coat. A common prime coat color to use is Black Base Color FX. It hides the discoloration of the concrete and any crack patching material.

There are several ways to place the mixed epoxy depending on your desired look and the number of Metallic 3DFX colors you will be using.

As a metallic coat, pour the mixed material in ribbons, puddles, etc., and spread evenly using a flat or notched squeegee at 35 -50 square feet per gallon. Pour and apply mixed material on the floor immediately after mixing as leaving in mix container will shorten pot life.

Re-Coat

If possible, recoat within the suggested recoat window located above. Apply additional coats in the same manner as the first coat. Note that higher substrate, air, and material temperatures as well as excessive humidity may greatly reduce the acceptable recoat window of this product. When working in higher temperatures, always recoat as early in the recoat window as possible to avoid failure between coats. If recoating outside the suggested recoat window or beyond 24 hours, sand using a 60-120 grit sanding screen to ensure adequate adhesion between coats. Vacuum dust thoroughly, rinse with clean water, and remove excess water with a wet/dry vacuum or floor scrubber. Allow the surface to dry completely prior to application of the coating. Where applicable and with adequate ventilation, wipe the surface with acetone and a microfiber dust mop.

Caution: Acetone FX is extremely flammable! If using acetone follow all safety precautions, make sure no pilot lights, open flames, sources of static electricity, sparks, or extreme heat sources are present. Use the recommended personal protection for Acetone FX.
