Our PCDs work on a variety of surfaces. They will remove soft, hard, thin and thick coatings with ease. A diamond cup wheel is undoubtedly more expensive, but it is the only tool that can be relied upon for practically any job.
Why Do You Need a Cup Wheel?
Simply put, all coatings must be removed before waterproofing. Attempting to prep and waterproof a surface that has not be cleared of any epoxy, paint or other debris will cause cracking, bubbling, chipping and a surface that is not thoroughly waterproofed. To do the job right, you must start with a clean slate. This is where Sani-Tred can help.
To remove paints, use our Off the Wall Coating Remover. Simply brush or roll on, and then power wash away. Thicker coatings usually require the use of a grinder. Luckily, our PCDs have shown to remove the surface of a 16 square foot area of hard epoxy in under two minutes. This means a standard basement could be completely cleared of coating in about two hours.
Once the coating has been removed, brush or rinse away any excess dust. After the area is completely clean and dry, you are ready to begin waterproofing. Start with Permaflex, and then fill in any holes, cracks or seams with a mix of LRB/TAV. Follow up with another coat of Permaflex for a completely waterproof surface that will last a lifetime.
