Wednesday’s Question:ICANATEX Logo

I applied finish to a new VCT floor and a few spots that weren't totally dry between coats ended up crackling. Is there a way to do some sort of patch work to fix the crackling?

Wednesday’s Answer:

For this to happen, the coats must have been much too heavy.

To fix the problem, I can only suggest that you scrub the affected spots to remove any soils and then lightly recoat the cracked spots.

You may need several coats, and you may need to put down a final coat over the whole area for a uniform appearance...  ICAN representative
