Our metallic effect epoxy flooring is a popular choice for many types of homes and businesses because of its combination of appearance, durability, and value.
An epoxy coating is not paint. Rather, it is a thermosetting resin that is applied to a floor as a coating. Epoxide resin is mixed with a polyamine hardener. The mixture cures and forms a layer that is strong and much thicker than paint.
Epoxy floor coatings offer several benefits over other types of flooring. Epoxy resists damage from impacts, chipping, chemicals, stains, and surface abrasions. Epoxy coatings can also effectively cover up imperfections in concrete. Concrete flooring has a tendency to shed dusty powder, but epoxy eliminates this effect. Epoxy concrete coatings also resist moisture and are easy to clean with mild soap and water. Slip-resistant aggregate can be added to the top coat to create a non-skid surface.
Epoxy is a popular choice for garage floors because it can resist damage and stains from tools, oil, fluids, and chemicals. Metallic effect epoxy floor coatings are also a wise choice for a variety of other locations, including homes, salons, gyms, sports arenas, showrooms, stores, malls, hotels, office buildings, hospitals, and schools.
Metallic effect epoxy coatings provide better lighting because epoxy is a naturally reflective material. It is also less expensive than other types of flooring, making it an economical alternative.
With metallic effect epoxy flooring, two base colors are generally used, along with several other accent colors. The colors fuse while wet to create unique patterns and a seamless appearance.
A concrete floor must be properly prepared before an epoxy coating is applied to achieve the best results. Floor grinding, shot blasting, or acid etching is generally required to make the epoxy coating adhere well to the surface. It is also necessary to patch or repair any cracks in the floor. Multiple coats of metallic epoxy coating must be applied to create the most durable surface possible.
