Shot-blasting concrete remains the surface preparation of choice for any flooring contractor concerned about bonding a coating to a concrete floor surface. Surface preparation is an important step prior to the installation of either concrete or epoxy overlays. This method can profile concrete and asphalt for road reconstruction.
