To ensure proper adhesion of the strap epoxy, the surface of the wall is grinded down to remove any dirt, oil or paint that may be on the surface. Only the area where the strap will be placed is grinded down.
Using a special application gun, a stronger than steel epoxy is applied to the strap in a zig zag motion to provide complete coverage.
The strap is connected to the wall and any excess epoxy is smoothed out over the top of the strap. The straps and wall may now to painted to improve the look of the wall.
