Decorative gravel floors can become damaged over the years. Pieces may come loose or a piece of flooring may need to be repaired. Epoxy gravel floors then offer a solution. In this informative article, we explain step by step how to repair gravel floors using epoxy. This job is easy and relatively inexpensive for a handy do-it-yourselfer.
The first step in repairing a gravel floor is to remove loose parts in the floor. After that, make the surface dust-free with a vacuum cleaner, for example.
Then mix a small amount of epoxy in the mixing ratio 100 to 60 (by weight parts). Brush a thin layer onto the substrate and allow it to cure for at least 8 hours.
Mix enough epoxy resin in the proper mixing ratio. Of the epoxy coating, this is 100 to 60 parts by weight. If necessary, add UV-stabiliser if the floor will be exposed to a lot of UV light. After the epoxy is properly mixed, the decorative gravel can be mixed in. For every 10 grams of epoxy, add 100 grams of decorative gravel. Spoon it in well.
When the gravel is well mixed with the epoxy, you can repair or refinish the gravel floor. To do this, use the flat trowel to apply the gravel and then tap and smooth it. A bright lamp can provide ironing light so you can get the floor nice and flat.

After 24 hours, the epoxy has largely hardened and the epoxy gravel floor can be walked on carefully. Only after a few days has the epoxy fully hardened and the floor can be fully loaded.
