Epoxy floor coatings can be applied over appropriately prepared bare concrete. The majority of suppliers advise using a primer initially to enhance the bond between the epoxy and the underlying concrete. We combine the two component epoxy resin with the preferred pigmented/metallic aggregate, if a special decorative finish is required, and after that spread the coating out across the concrete floor. The last phase is to use a sealant, that makes the finish much more resistant against chemical solvents, oils, acids, water and grease.
Regardless of whether you need attractive epoxy floor coating solutions that will stand up to continuous traffic or significant loads from vehicles or standing machinery and equipment, we are experienced in delivering the pairing of aesthetics and durability for any setting. For example, by using metallics, quartz and chip combinations it is possible to produce shiny surface finishes which deal with constant use, so you can always take advantage of attractive floors that are as tough as they are stylish.
Metallics, Quartz and Chip Blends
Using these types of epoxy flooring blends offers you the solutions you require to go well with any kind of area. Stunning tinted quartz blend and epoxy resin coatings provide remarkable durability and impact resistance. They can be applied by slurry, broadcast or trowel. Inventive pigmented chip blend and resin coatings give you the appearance of terrazzo, and are much less expensive to install in thefirst place and then to take care of. Unlike marble floors there is no need for constant buffing and waxing.
Epoxy based metallic faux stain flooring offers the natural beauty of colored or polished concrete floors. However epoxy floors have far superior functionality, durability and toughness. In open public areas, stained concrete will wear away, reducing its coloration and top finish. After some time patches can appear and even “path” where foot traffic is heavy. Tricky and often unslightly spot repairs are then needed on an ongoing basis. High performance, epoxy based metallic flooring solutions, however, conceal, instead of highlight bare concrete defects. Their beautiful, streaming designs apply uniformly and resist wear and tear well, due to the industrial grade epoxy resin and mineral constituents.
Further Advantages of Decorative Epoxy Floor Systems
From epoxy floor coating systems and MMAs and polaspartics to cementitious urethanes, decorative epoxy flooring provides an impressive mixture of functional and visual advantages, such as:
- Simple to manage – absolutely no buffing, polishing or waxing needed
- Fast turn over, rapid curing solutions to choose from
- High grip anti slip alternatives that don’t hinder appearance
- Ideal for hefty and constant foot and trolley traffic
- High traffic coatings with industrial strength chemical and scratch resistance
- Insert lettering, directions, pathway markers, traffic lanes, car parking markers, artwork, signs or logos directly into the floor
- Anti-bacterial protection for facilities such as hosptials, food storage and food preparation operations
- Moisture vapor minimization surfaces
These types of features make decorative epoxy floor coating systems perfect for areas that need long lasting aesthetic and practical in-built designs, regardless of what the building is used for.
