The epoxy VRM Vapor reduction * PE -100 pigmented Tan membrane to stick to it. Saddle Tan Colored Chips Broadcasted in to the epoxy Base while wet and then let is dry for 24 hours. After the epoxy is cured the access vinyl flakes were removed and floor vacuumed.
A final coat of PE-100 Clear Top Coated the flakes totally covering them and giving the floor a very smooth texture finish.
