Transform Your Floors with a General Purpose System

Discover how the General Purpose Flooring System can transform your space with its stunning, high-gloss finish and unmatched durability.


Elevate the look and functionality of your floors with the General Purpose Flooring System. This versatile epoxy solution delivers cost-effective protection for a variety of everyday environments. Its durable, high-gloss finish not only looks professional but is also easy to maintain.

Ideal Applications

The General Purpose Flooring System is perfect for a wide range of environments. In automotive facilities, fire stations, and garages, it provides a robust surface that withstands heavy use and exposure to chemicals. Schools, retail spaces, and hospitals benefit from its seamless finish, which is both hygienic and easy to clean, contributing to a safe and attractive environment.

Restaurants, breweries, and wineries appreciate the system's resistance to spills and stains, ensuring a long-lasting, appealing floor. Warehouses and distribution centers rely on its durability and ability to handle heavy traffic and machinery.

Benefits of the General Purpose Flooring System

The General Purpose Flooring System offers numerous advantages that make it a superior choice for various applications. Its self-leveling properties ensure a smooth and even surface, reducing the risk of tripping hazards and creating a professional appearance. The seamless, high-build coating enhances durability and ease of maintenance, making it ideal for environments that demand high performance and reliability.

Chemical resistance is another key benefit, protecting floors from damage caused by spills and exposure to harsh substances. This system is also economical, providing a cost-effective solution without compromising quality. Its durability ensures a long lifespan, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements. Additionally, the easy-to-clean surface maintains its aesthetic appeal with minimal effort, and its abrasion resistance ensures it can withstand heavy traffic and rough conditions.

System Components

Our General Purpose Flooring System comprises two main components:

The Primer

The PPG 912 LV Epoxy Primer is a two-component, highly penetrating epoxy primer and sealer. It creates an excellent mechanical bond to the substrate, ensuring the longevity and effectiveness of the flooring system.

This primer features low viscosity, allowing it to penetrate deeply into the concrete surface, and low odor, making it suitable for use in occupied spaces. It effectively seals concrete surfaces, helping to eliminate outgassing that can cause defects in the final coating.

The 912 LV bonds to dry and damp concrete, masonry, and metal, and can be applied using a roller, squeegee, or brush, providing flexibility in application methods.

The Base

The PPG 610 SL Self-Leveling Epoxy is a 100% solids epoxy coating that delivers a high-gloss finish. It is specifically designed to protect concrete surfaces in corrosive environments. This coating features Bisphenol A epoxy, which provides outstanding color stability and resistance to yellowing. Its excellent chemical resistance protects floors from damage caused by acids, caustics, detergents, and other corrosive materials.

The self-leveling coating is highly resilient to thermal shock and mechanical impact, ensuring it can withstand the rigors of demanding environments. It adheres exceptionally well to dry and damp substrates, including concrete, metal, tile, terrazzo, and existing epoxy and urethane coatings.

Additionally, it has a low odor and is USDA approved for incidental food contact, making it suitable for use in food processing areas.

Expert Recommendations

For floors with high moisture issues, we recommend applying two coats of the PPG 912 Primer LV at 10 mills. This approach effectively controls vapor emissions that can rise through concrete, preventing adhesion issues and ensuring a strong, durable bond between the substrate and the epoxy coating. By blocking moisture, this primer helps prevent coatings from separating, extending the life and performance of your flooring system.

For those seeking a metallic finish, we suggest using the PPG 980 Clear Self-Leveling Epoxy. This versatile product allows you to create a wide range of decorative effects, including spatter, waves, scatters, marbling, raindrops, and granite. These unique finishes can enhance the visual appeal of your space, making it stand out while maintaining the durability and performance expected from the General Purpose Flooring System.
