Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy Flooring Singapore

 

Epoxy flooring and epoxy paint have become the latest trends in flooring systems for both residential and commercial sectors. Chosen for their superior physical and aesthetic qualities, these coatings transform old, tired spaces into decorative and attractive areas. They provide a durable, slip-resistant surface, enhance aesthetics, and protect the underlying substrate from environmental damage. If your existing floor is damaged, applying epoxy flooring or epoxy paint can protect and potentially extend its life.

 

What is Epoxy?

 

Epoxy is made up of two main components – a resin is mixed with a hardener, creating a chemical reaction that forms a rigid plastic material that is strong, resistant to wear and bonds extremely well to most any surface. Epoxy flooring is made up of multiple layers of epoxy resin applied to the concrete substrate floor at different depths, with different results. The benefits of the coating are immediate: The concrete is protected from everyday wear and tear, becomes slip and chemical-resistant, and its overall appearance is improved, in addition to the floor becoming easier to clean and maintain.

 

Ease of Application

 

Using epoxy resin flooring is a game changer in any space that sees a lot of action. Whether it’s a garage, a showroom, or an industrial area, this stuff holds up like nothing else. It’s incredibly tough against everything from high foot traffic to heavy machines. Not only does it resist spills from chemicals and oil, making them a breeze to clean up, but it also maintains its look without much effort.

What really sets epoxy apart is its bonding power—it sticks like a dream to almost any surface, ensuring that it doesn’t just wear away. Plus, it’s mechanically sound and stable, which means it won’t deform under pressure. When it’s fully set, it’s resistant to both chemicals and heat and barely shrinks. And let’s not forget, it looks stunning. So, you’re getting durability and style all in one go with epoxy flooring.

Where to use Epoxy Flooring?

 

It can be used in the most demanding of industrial environments to protect facility surfaces, factory machinery and personnel from wear, chemicals, UV light, moisture and accidents. Its also recently become very popular for residential areas – apartments and garage flooring.

Epoxy flooring is great for:

  • Residential Homes
  • Apartment with Lift Access
  • Office Buildings
  • Retailers / Shopping Malls
  • Industrial / Warehouse

Benefits of Epoxy Floor

  • Strong Material
    It is a strong and durable coating, meaning it lasts longer than other coatings. You can use it for years and years.
  • Wear and Tear Resistant
    It is resistant to wear and tear and high levels of traffic – both vehicle and foot.
  • No Chemical Problems
    Resistant to both chemical and non-chemical spills and accidents. Chemicals will not damage the floor in any way.
  • Safe for All
    The floor is safe for everyone. Its anti-slip material means that it can maintain its integrity and is safe for people to walk or drive over.
  • Quick & Simple to Install
    It is easy to install. It does not take a long time to install, and the payoff is worth it.
  • Visually Appealing
    Epoxy coating comes in a host of different colours and styles, so you can have your floor any way you want.
  • Easy to Clean
    Due to its strength and resistance to most factors, it requires minimal time to clean.
  • Great for the Environment
    Thanks to its strength and the ease of cleaning, once installed, epoxy floors are great for the environment and will not affect it negatively.
  • Affordable
    Worth the value, epoxy floors are a one-time investment. Once installed, they will last the distance and prove to be a successful long-term investment with the amount of money you will save.

Epoxy Coating

Epoxy coating systems require meticulous application, consisting of several crucial steps. Each stage must be precisely executed to ensure the flooring’s durability and functionality. An improperly applied epoxy floor can result in scratching, peeling, and premature failure, highlighting the importance of choosing an experienced and competent contractor to manage the installation effectively from the outset.

Our product range caters to diverse requirements, featuring self-levelling epoxies, chemical-resistant formulations, roll coats, rapid-setting mixtures, trowel mixes, and anti-slip solutions. This variety ensures that every flooring challenge is met with a tailored solution, enhancing the performance and longevity of the floors.

Over time, the necessity of epoxy coatings in industrial settings has become increasingly apparent. Companies have observed that unprotected concrete floors deteriorate rapidly compared to those treated with impermeable epoxy coatings, which offer a maintainable and easy-to-clean finish essential for extending the life of the floor.

In sectors like the food industry, where hygiene and maintenance are paramount, epoxy flooring has become the preferred choice over traditional materials like vinyl, wood, or tiles. This shift is driven by the seamless finish that epoxy offers, eliminating seams and grout lines from wall to drain, thereby simplifying cleaning and maintenance while providing a sustainable flooring solution.

    Versatile High Gloss Epoxy Resin used as a Primer, High Build Coating and for Decorative Quartz and Flake Applications

    It is a low odor, 100% solids, epoxy resin coating system primarily designed for high build coatings, decorative quartz, and decorative flake applications. It may be used as a primer and may be applied clear or pigmented using Epoxy Color Additive-N.

    Where to use

    It is ideal as a broadcast clear, low odor top coat, or intermediate coat over decorative quartz or vinyl flake floor broadcast systems. It can also be field pigmented. Its clear and/or pigmented can also be top coated with an aliphatic urethane when increased chemical and abrasion resistance are required. When used as a primer, it can be considered where ≤ 4% moisture content by mass (pbw – part by weight) is measured on concrete substrate with concrete moisture meter.

    Typical applications may include:

    • Auto dealerships
    • Institutions
    • Grocery, department and retail stores
    • Pharmaceutical laboratories, production rooms and offices.
    • Museum and galleries.
    • Animal shelter and veterinary clinics.
    • Laboratories
    • Bathroom/shower areas

    Advantages

    • Good chemical resistance
    • 100% solids as supplied
    • Attractive, high gloss, reflective coating
    • Tough, smooth, non-porous surface is easy to clean
    • Durable, impermeable and seamless
    • Easily applied with brush, roller or squeegee
    • Good abrasion resistance
    • Optional integral cove base and curbs may be installed without seams and joints
    • Excellent impact resistance
    • Unlimited design capabilities available in various textures, patterns and colors

    How to use Surface Preparation

    Surface must be clean, sound and dry. Remove dust, laitance, grease, curing compounds, bond inhibiting impregnations, waxes and any other contaminants. All projections, rough spots, etc. should be removed to achieve a level surface prior to the application. Concrete – Should be cleaned and prepared to achieve a laitance-free and contaminant-free, open textured surface by shot blasting or equivalent mechanical means (CSP-3 to CSP-4 as per ICRI guidelines). Sweep and vacuum any remaining dirt and dust with a wet/dry vacuum. Removing residual dust will help ensure a tenacious bond between the primer/coating and the substrate. Whenever “shot-blasting” is utilized, be careful to leave concrete with a uniform texture. “Over-blasting” will result in reduced coverage rates of the primer and/or subsequent topcoats. The “shotblast” pattern may show through the last coat, known as “tracking”. The compressive strength of the concrete substrate should be at least 3,500 psi (24 MPa) at 28 days and at least 215 psi (1.5 MPa) in tension at the time of application.

    Mixing

    Mixing Ratio – 2 : 1 by volume.

    Each component must be pre-mixed separately to ensure product uniformity.

    Clear Resin:

    Premix each component separately. Empty Component B (Hardener) in the correct mix ratio into Component A (Resin). Mix the combined components for at least 3 minutes using a low speed drill (300 – 450 rpm) and Exomixer or Jiffy type paddle suited to the volume of the mixing container to minimize entrapped air. Be careful not to introduce any air bubbles while mixing. Make sure the contents are completely mixed to avoid any weak or partially cured spots in the coating. During the mixing operation, scrape down the sides and bottom of the container with a flat or straight edge trowel at least once to ensure complete mixing.

    Field Pigmented:

    Premix each component separately. If color is desired, the appropriate Epoxy Color Additive-N is added to Component A at a rate of 1 quart (1L) per 5 mixed gallons (18.9 L) [Components A+B)] for all colors except bright colors like White, Safety Yellow or Tile Red which require 2 quarts (2 L) per 5 mixed gallons (18.9 L) [(i.e. Components A+B)]. Mix Component A and Epoxy Color Additive-N for 2 minutes or until a uniform color is achieved with a low speed drill (300 – 450 rpm) and Exomixer or Jiffy type paddle suited to the volume.

    Empty Component B (Hardener) in the correct mix ratio to Component A (Resin) and mix for additional 2 minutes. Be careful not to introduce any air bubbles while mixing. Make sure the contents are completely mixed to avoid any weak or partially cured spots in the coating. During the mixing operation, scrape down the sides and bottom of the container with a flat or straight edge trowel at least once to ensure complete mixing.

    Do not mix more material than can be applied within the working time limits (i.e. Pot Life) at the actual field temperature.

    Application

    As Primer:

    Apply it by squeegee at the rate of 160 – 266 ft2 / US gal (3.9 – 6.5 m2 / L) at 6 – 10 mils (0.15 – 0.25 mm) wet film thickness (w.f.t.) and back roll immediately. Coverage will vary depending on the porosity of the prepared floor. Product has a limited pot life (see Typical Data). Do not apply by dipping roller into mixing container. Pour a bead of product in the form of a ribbon on the surface to be coated, then spread with squeegee and back roll. Ensure that the coating is pore-free and pinholefree and provides uniform and complete coverage over the entire concrete substrate. If necessary, apply an additional coat to ensure the coating is pore-free and pinhole-free, and provides uniform and complete coverage over the entire concrete substrate.

    As Sealer/Intermediate:

    It is applied with a 12 to 40 mil (0.30 – 1 mm) notched squeegee over a smooth surface and a flat squeegee over a rough decorative quartz or decorative flake surfaces. Back rolling is typically done with an 18 inch (455 mm) wide 3/8-inch (10 mm) nap, solvent-resistant roller cover. Back roll it only to level the squeegee applied material. Over-rolling and late back rolling may cause bubbling and leave roller marks.

    Notes on Limitations:

    Prior to application, measure and confirm Substrate Moisture Content, Ambient Relative Humidity, Ambient and Surface Temperature and Dew Point. During installation, confirm and record above values at least once every 3 hours, or more frequently whenever conditions change (e.g. Ambient Temperature rise/fall, Relative Humidity increase/decrease, etc.).

    Substrate Moisture Content

    Moisture content of concrete substrate must be ≤ 4% by mass (pbw – part by weight) as measured with concrete moisture meter on mechanically prepared surface according to this product data sheet (preparation to CSP-3 to CSP-4 as per ICRI guidelines). Do not apply to concrete substrate with moisture levels > 4% mass (pbw – part by weight) as measured with concrete moisture meter. If moisture content of concrete substrate is > 4% by mass (pbw – part by weight) as measured with concrete moisture meter.

    When relative humidity tests for concrete substrate are conducted for project specific requirements, values must be ≤ 85%.

    Testing is not a substitute for measuring substrate moisture content. Use concrete moisture meter as described above.

    Material Temperature

    Precondition material for at least 24 hours between 65° to 75°F (18° to 24°C)

    Ambient Temperature

    Minimum/Maximum 50˚/85˚F (10˚/30˚C)

    Substrate Temperature

    Minimum/Maximum 50˚/85˚F (10˚/30˚C). Substrate temperature must be at least 5˚F (3˚C) above measured Dew Point.

    Mixing and Application attempted at Material, Ambient and/or Substrate Temperature conditions less than 65˚F (18˚C) will result in a decrease in product workability and slower cure rates.

    Ambient Relative Humidity

    Maximum ambient and humidity 85% (during application and curing)

    Dew Point

    Beware of condensation! The substrate must be at least 5˚F (3˚C) above the Dew Point to reduce the risk of condensation, which may lead to adhesion failure or “blushing” on the floor finish. Be aware that the substrate temperature may be lower than the ambient temperature.

    Mixing

    Do not hand mix materials. Mechanically mix only. Do not thin this product. Addition of thinners (e.g. water, solvent, etc.) will slow cure and reduce ultimate properties of this product. Use of thinners will void any applicable warranty. Improper mixing procedure or incorrect mixing ratio may result in moisture sensitivity, whitening, slow cure, soft spots, and other defects.

    Application

    If used as a primer. Apply the primer/coating to the prepared substrate using a squeegee and back roll to provide uniform coverage. Ensure that the substrate is pore-free and pinhole-free and provides uniform and complete coverage over the entire concrete substrate. If necessary, apply an additional coat to ensure the substrate is pore-free and pinhole-free and provides uniform and complete coverage over the entire substrate.

    • Do not apply while ambient and substrate temperatures are rising, as pinholes may occur. Ensure there is no vapor drive at the time of application. Refer to ASTM D4263, may be used for a visual indication of vapor drive.
    • Freshly applied material should be protected from dampness, condensation and water for at least 72 hrs.
    • Will discolor over time when exposed to sunlight (UV) and under certain artificial lighting conditions. Use of clear UV resistant top coat may not prevent discoloration of underlying coatings
    • Do not apply Sikafloor to concrete substrate containing aggregates susceptible to ASR (Alkali Silica Reaction) due to risk of natural alkali redistribution below the Sikafloor product after application. If concrete substrate has or is suspected to have ASR (Alkali Silica Reaction) present, do not proceed. Consult with design professional prior to use.
    • Any aggregate used with Sikafloor systems must be non-reactive and oven-dried.
    • This product is not designed for negative side waterproofing.
    • Typically not recommended for exterior slabs on grade where freeze/thaw conditions may exist
    • Use of unvented heaters and certain heat sources may result in defects (e.g. blushing, whitening, debonding, etc.).
    • Beware of air flow and changes in air flow. Introduction of dust, debris, and particles, etc. may result in surface imperfections and other defects.
    • For professional use only by experienced applicators.

    Where to use

    Roller coat and self-leveling slurry for concrete surfaces, with medium to heavy duty wear (e.g. storage, hallways, corridors and assembly halls, maintenance workshops, garages and loading ramps), or as a seal coat for broadcast systems. When used as a primer, it can be considered when ≤ 4% moisture content by mass (pbw – part by weight) is measured on the concrete substrate with concrete moisture meter.

    Advantages

    • Good chemical and abrasion resistance
    • Easily applied with brush, roller and squeegee
    • Glossy aesthetic finish
    • Slip resistant surface possible
    • Durable, impermeable and seamless
    • Solvent-free, low odor
    • Low mixed viscosity

    How to use Surface Preparation

    Surface must be clean, sound and dry. Remove dust, laitance, grease, curing compounds, bond inhibiting impregnations, waxes and any other contaminants. All projections, rough spots, etc. should be removed to achieve a level surface prior to the application. Concrete – Should be cleaned and prepared to achieve a laitance-free and contaminant-free, open textured surface by shot blasting or equivalent mechanical means (CSP-3 to CSP-4 as per ICRI guidelines). Sweep and vacuum any remaining dirt and dust with a wet/dry vacuum. Removing residual dust will help ensure a tenacious bond between the primer/ coating and the substrate. Whenever “shot-blasting” is utilized, be careful to leave concrete with a uniform texture. “Over-blasting” will result in reduced coverage rates of the primer and/or subsequent topcoats. The “shotblast” pattern may show through the last coat, known as “tracking”. The compressive strength of the concrete substrate should be at least 3,500 psi (24 MPa) at 28 days and at least 215 psi (1.5 MPa) in tension at the time of application.

    Priming

    Primer or Smooth Finish Coating

    Priming for concrete substrate is required. Allow the primer to cure (varies with temperature and humidity) until tack free before applying subsequent coats. Ensure that the primer is pore-free, pinhole-free and provides uniform and complete coverage over the entire substrate. It may be used as a primer on concrete substrates for Coating Systems subjected to light traffic use.

    Mixing

    Mixing Ratio – 2 : 1 by volume.

    Each component must be pre-mixed separately to ensure product uniformity.

    Primer and Wear Coat

    Premix each component separately. Empty Component B (Hardener) in the correct mix ratio into Component A (Resin). Mix the combined components for at least 3 minutes using a low speed drill (300 – 450 rpm) and Exomixer or Jiffy type paddle suited to the volume of the mixing container to minimize entrapped air. Be careful not to introduce any air while mixing. Make sure the contents are completely mixed to avoid any weak or partially cured spots in the coating. During the mixing operation, scrape down the sides and bottom of the container with a flat or straight edge trowel at least once to ensure complete mixing.

    Self-leveling Slurry: Note: If a small mix unit is needed, mix the following quantities: 1 Mixed (A+B) US gal. of 11.1 Lbs. of filler. This mix would yield approximately 1.5 gallons of slurry mix.

    Premix each component separately. Empty Component B (Hardener) in the correct mix ratio into Component A (Resin). Mix the combined components for at least 1 minute using a low speed drill (300 – 450 rpm) and Exomixer or Jiffy type paddle suited to the volume of the mixing container to minimize entrapped air. Add filler and mix for additional 2 minutes. Be careful not to introduce any air while mixing. Make sure the contents are completely mixed to avoid any weak or partially cured spots in the slurry. During the mixing operation, scrape down the sides and bottom of the container with a flat or straight edge trowel at least once to ensure complete mixing.

    Do not mix more material than can be applied within the working time limits (i.e. Pot Life) at the actual field temperature.

    Application

    As Primer

    Apply primer by squeegee at the rate of 160 – 266 ft2 / US gal (3.4 – 5.4 m2 / L) at 6 – 10 mils (0.15– 0.25 mm) wet film thickness (w.f.t.) and back roll within 15 minutes. Coverage will vary depending on the porosity of the prepared floor. Product has a limited pot life, see Typical Data. Do not apply by dipping roller into mixing container. Pour a bead of product in the form of a ribbon on the surface to be coated, then spread with squeegee and back roll. Ensure that the coating is pore-free and pinholefree and provides uniform and complete coverage over the entire concrete substrate. If necessary, apply an additional coat to ensure the coating is pore-free and pinhole-free and provides uniform and complete coverage over the entire concrete substrate.

    As Wear and Sealer Coat

    It is applied with a 15 – 20 mil (0.37 – 0.5 mm) notched squeegee over a smooth surface and a flat squeegee over a rough or broadcast quartz surface. Back rolling is typically done with an 18 inch (455 mm) wide 3/8 inch (10 mm) nap, solvent-resistant roller cover. Back roll it only to level the squeegee applied material. Over-rolling and late back rolling may cause bubbling and leave roller marks.

    Smooth Finish Self-Leveling Slurry

    Pour a bead of product on the surface to be coated, then spread with a notched squeegee or pin rake to the desired thickness (60 – 120 mils). Roll immediately (within max. 10 minutes of application) in two directions with a spiked roller to ensure even thickness and the removal of entrapped air. To obtain a higher aesthetic finish, spike roll in two directions at a 90 degree angle by passing only once in each direction.

    Notes on Limitations

    Prior to application, measure and confirm Substrate Moisture Content, Ambient Relative Humidity, Ambient and Surface Temperature and Dew Point. During installation, confirm and record above values at least once every 3 hours, or more frequently whenever conditions change (e.g. Ambient Temperature rise/fall, Relative Humidity increase/decrease, etc.).

    Substrate Moisture Content

    Moisture content of concrete substrate must be ≤ 4% by mass (pbw – part by weight) as measured with concrete moisture meter on mechanically prepared surface according to this product data sheet (preparation to CSP-3 to CSP-4 as per ICRI guidelines). Do not apply to concrete substrate with moisture levels > 4% mass (pbw – part by weight) as measured with concrete moisture meter. If moisture content of concrete substrate is > 4% by mass (pbw – part by weight) as measured with concrete moisture meter.

    When relative humidity tests for concrete substrate are conducted per for project specific requirements, values must be ≤ 85%.

    Testing is not a substitute for measuring substrate moisture content. Use concrete moisture meter as described above.

    Material Temperature

    Precondition material for at least 24 hours between 65° to 75°F (18° to 24°C)

    Ambient Temperature

    Minimum/Maximum 50˚/85˚F (10˚/30˚C)

    Substrate Temperature

    Minimum/Maximum 50˚/85˚F (10˚/30˚C). Substrate temperature must be at least 5˚F (3˚C) above measured Dew Point.

    Mixing and Application must adhere to Material, Ambient and Substrate temperatures listed above or a decrease in product workability and slower cure rates will occur.

    Ambient Relative Humidity

    Maximum ambient humidity 85% (during application and curing)

    Dew Point

    Beware of condensation!

    The substrate must be at least 5˚F (3˚C) above the Dew Point to reduce the risk of condensation, which may lead to adhesion failure or “blushing” on the floor finish. Be aware that the substrate temperature may be lower than the ambient temperature.

    Mixing

    Do not hand mix materials. Mechanically mix only. Do not thin this product. Addition of thinners (e.g. water, solvent, etc.) will slow cure and reduce ultimate properties of this product. Use of thinners will void any applicable warranty. Improper mixing procedure or incorrect mixing ratio may result in moisture sensitivity, whitening, slow cure, soft spots, and other defects.

    Application

    If used as a primer apply material to the prepared substrate using a squeegee and back roll to provide uniform coverage. Ensure that the substrate is pore-free and pinhole- free and provides uniform and complete coverage over the entire substrate. If necessary, apply an additional coat to ensure the substrate is pore-free and pinhole-free and provides uniform and complete coverage over the entire substrate.

    • Do not apply while ambient and substrate temperatures are rising, as pinholes may occur. Ensure there is no vapor drive at the time of application. May be used for a visual indication of vapor drive.
    • Will discolor over time when exposed to sunlight (UV) and under certain artificial lighting conditions. Use of clear UV resistant top coat may not prevent discoloration of underlying coatings
    • Do not apply it to concrete substrate containing aggregates susceptible to ASR (Alkali Silica Reaction) due to risk of natural alkali redistribution below the product after application. If concrete substrate has or is suspected to have ASR (Alkali Silica Reaction) present, do not proceed. Consult with design professional prior to use.
    • Any aggregate used with floor systems must be non-reactive and oven-dried.
    • This product is not designed for negative side waterproofing.
    • Use of unvented heaters and certain heat sources may result in defects (e.g. blushing, whitening, debonding, etc.).
    • Beware of air flow and changes in air flow. Introduction of dust, debris, and particles, etc. may result in surface imperfections and other defects.
    • For professional use only by experienced applicators.

    Pigmented Thixotropic Epoxy Topcoat

    A two-component, high solids, epoxy based, pigmented thixotropic topcoat providing a textured or light orange peel texture finish. May be used as a topcoat on Epoxy Flooring Systems. Designed as a top coat over Flooring Systems and Trowelled Epoxy Mortar Systems to enhance abrasion and chemical resistance.

    Where to use

    Grout coat and topcoat for trowelled epoxy mortar & cove systems with normal up to medium heavy wear (e.g. storage, hallways, corridors and assembly halls, maintenance workshops, garages and loading ramps). Can be applied as a topcoat for epoxy systems creating a light orange peel texture finish.

    Advantages

    • Thixotropic – light orange peel texture
    • Grout coat for trowelled epoxy mortar & cove systems
    • Top coat for epoxy mortar and cove systems
    • Excellent abrasion resistance
    • Excellent impact resistance
    • Good chemical and mechanical resistance
    • Durable, impermeable and seamless

    How to use Surface Preparation

    Surface must be clean, sound and dry. Remove dust, laitance, grease, curing compounds, bond inhibiting impregnations, waxes and any other contaminants. All projections, rough spots, etc. should be dressed off to achieve a level surface prior to the application. Concrete – Should be cleaned and prepared to achieve a laitance-free and contaminant-free, open textured surface by shot blasting or equivalent mechanical means (CSP-3 to CSP-4 as per ICRI guidelines). Sweep and vacuum any remaining dirt and dust with a wet/dry vacuum. Removing residual dust will help ensure a tenacious bond between the primer and substrate. Whenever “shot-blasting” is utilized, be careful to leave concrete with a uniform texture. “Over-blasting” will result in reduced coverage rates of the primer and/or subsequent topcoats. The “shotblast” pattern may show through the last coat, known as “tracking”. The compressive strength of the concrete substrate should be at least 3,500 psi (24 MPa) at 28 days and at least 215 psi (1.5 MPa) in tension at the time of application.

    Priming

    Priming for concrete substrate is required. Allow the primer to cure (varies with temperature and humidity) until tack free before applying subsequent coats. Ensure that the primer is pore-free, pinhole-free and provides uniform and complete coverage over the entire substrate. If used as a Grout coat/Top coat on epoxy mortar, primer is not required.

    Mixing

    Mixing Ratio – 2 : 1 by volume.

    Premix each Component separately. Empty Component B (Hardener) in the correct mix ratio into Component A (Resin). Mix the combined components for at least 3 minutes using a low speed drill (300 – 450 rpm) and Exomixer or Jiffy type paddle suited to the volume of the mixing container to minimize entrapped air. Be careful not to introduce any air while mixing. Make sure the contents are completely mixed to avoid any weak or partially cured spots in the coating. During the mixing operation, scrape down the sides and bottom of the container with a flat or straight edge trowel at least once to ensure complete mixing.

    Do not mix more material than can be applied within the working time limits (i.e. Pot Life) at the actual field temperature.

    Application

    As a Grout Coat on Epoxy Mortar Systems

    It is applied with a flat rubber squeegee or flat metal trowel tightly over a smooth surface.
