Default Word to the wise

Quick, Cody - before it cures:

Drop some blanks onto it
Pressurize your shop up to about 50psi to drive out the bubbles
Slowly release the pressure
Excise the flooring
Sell the priceless abstract work to a modern art gallery, title it Alumination #1, and list yourself as Dropson Pollock

Almost anything can be repurposed

It would certainly be a blowout.

I gave it a try and popped a door seal at about 10psi, talk about your ears popping! Concrete must have had some moisture in it, blanks came out cloudy and foamy. I guess I will have to stick to making blanks the conventional way.

Acetone works great for cleaning it up

My shop had painted floors when I bought it. Such messes pop up nicely once you get something under the edge. Hard on the floor coating, though.
