Mastering the Squeegee Technique for Epoxy Floors

Epoxy flooring has become a popular choice for both residential and commercial spaces due to its durability and sleek appearance. Achieving a professional-looking finish requires mastery over various application techniques, one of which is the use of a squeegee. This guide will walk you through the process of mastering the squeegee technique for your epoxy flooring projects.

Preparing Your Epoxy Mixture

Before diving into the squeegee technique, ensure your epoxy mixture is ready. Mixing the product correctly is crucial for a smooth application process. For a unique look, prepare to blend three different colors by creating random piles across the floor area you’re working on. Remember, for larger projects, divide your workspace into sections to manage the epoxy application more efficiently.

The Squeegee Technique Explained

The Right Tool for the Job

Selecting the correct tool is vital for this technique. A flat squeegee, specifically designed for epoxy flooring, is recommended to achieve the best results. This tool helps in evenly spreading the epoxy mixture across the floor.

Technique and Application

The application technique is straightforward yet requires attention to detail. Keep the squeegee at a slight angle instead of holding it upright to avoid removing too much epoxy. Your goal is to cover the entire section without seeing the primer beneath. Move the squeegee gently across the floor, ensuring even coverage and blending of colors.

Creating Effects with Isopropyl and Denatured Alcohol

Once you’re satisfied with the epoxy spread, it’s time to add character to your flooring. Spritzing the wet epoxy with 91% or higher isopropyl alcohol creates interesting cells and effects. After about five minutes, when the isopropyl alcohol has evaporated, a light mist of denatured alcohol will finalize the look.

Tips for Larger Floors

Large flooring projects require a bit more planning. Divide the floor into manageable sections to ensure the epoxy doesn’t become too difficult to work with. Mixing large amounts of epoxy at once can lead to premature curing, making it sticky and challenging to spread. By working in sections, you maintain control over the application process, ensuring a smooth, professional finish across the entire floor.


Mastering the squeegee technique for epoxy floors can transform the look of any space, offering a durable, glossy finish that stands the test of time. With the right tools, techniques, and a bit of practice, you can achieve professional results in your next DIY project. Whether you’re working on a residential kitchen or a commercial showroom, these tips will help you lay down a flawless epoxy floor.
