Apply solid color base/primer coat by Arizona Polymers. E550 100% solids 2-part epoxy.
Broadcast chips into wet epoxy, 300% coverage (full broadcast).
Allow to dry 8 hours or until the following morning/afternoon.
Day 2--Shave off loose chips and buff smooth.
Apply first coat of P100, a 2-part polyurethane epoxy with UVR.
Day 3--Let dry overnight, and apply 2nd coat of P100 with UVR.

This is what we use.
Polyurethane 100 is a two component, high solids aliphatic polyurethane. This product offers a remarkable combination of performance properties not found in other polymer coatings. Polyurethane 100 produces protective films which are hard, flexible and very impact resistant. These coatings feature high abrasion and scratch resistance, exterior durability, easy soil release and excellent resistance to a broad range of chemicals. For exterior applications, a U.V. stabilizer package is incorporated to insure long term chalk resistance and gloss retention. A special accelerator is available when rapid project turnaround is required.
Polyurethane 100 has been designed as a high performance top coat in various protective coating and seamless flooring applications. It provides maximum cleanability and stain resistance when used as a finish coat in color chip flooring or epoxy-quartz flooring. This coating is ideally suited for clean-room floors, automotive repair facilities, aircraft hangars and other high wear areas requiring resistance to fuels and chemicals. When used as a finish coat in wall coating systems, anti-graffiti properties are greatly enhanced.
Our competitors may offer Polyaspartic, which is designed to only last 10 years, and this
is stated on the polyaspartic manufacturers website. The only advantages are same day installation
and faster cure time. The disadvantage is that it dries too fast, causing installation imperfections, especially on a hot day.
