This failed epoxy floor was diamond ground off using a HTC 500 grinder and diamond bladed hand tools.  Careful attention to detail on the grinding is imperative to ensure proper adhesion of the new coating and is the #1 cause of floor coating failures that we have seen. We removed a caulking material that had been placed in the expansion joint by the previous contractor which had bubbled up – likely as it was coated over too soon and the coating applied didn’t allow it to off-gas.
