Hello everyone...this is my first post.
I have a project that involves stripping epoxy adheasive from the surface of oak flooring in a residential setting. I'm not sure of the best way to proceed...mechanical or chemical.?..
The epoxy was used to adhere carpeting to the oak flooring...The few flooring people locally I talked with think the epoxy would quickly load up any abrasive avaliable..
Any thoughts or opinions would be welcome..
Thank you for your time...

I sand cured epoxy and do not get plugged paper. Uncured epoxy plugs the paper.
I would try 50 grit paper to start.
