METALLIC EPOXY FLOOR
Epoxy flooring is a unique floor material that has steadily grown in popularity. Epoxy floor coatings are typically two-part systems consisting of a Part A resin and Part B hardener.
The flooring product needs resin and an activator to be a true epoxy. Because epoxy flooring is a two-part product, it requires professional installation to get the perfect ratio.
We are provide two systems: epoxy and polyaspartic.
Epoxy and polyaspartic flooring are similar in that both can be used as midcoats and topcoats.
There are an immense number of benefits to choosing epoxy flooring. The first and foremost one is the price. The materials and installation costs are not very high, making it an easy investment. It’s also stain resistant. So if you were to spill liquids or chemicals, it would be an easy clean. The standard cure time for epoxy is approximately 6 to 8 hours, which works well for many schedules, but can be a severe inconvenience for others.
One of the major benefits of polyaspartics is that they have an exceptionally quick cure time, allowing installation to be faster and incurring lower labor costs. The coating begins to cure within minutes, and can be ready for foot traffic in just 1-2 hours.
In metallic epoxies, metallic mica pigments are dispersed in a variety of binders to create seamless floors.
Maintenance is easy, and the amount of light they reflect is outstanding due to the glossy nature of the surface.
Using Metallic Pigments as part of a 3 step epoxy and polyaspartic application process offers the unique design of a quartz, granite or marble look in a tough, durable floor coating system at a fraction of the cost of natural stone, making them perfect for any commercial or residential setting.
Popular for garages, retail, offices, private spaces, showrooms and hospitals. But, recently, they’ve become popular for living rooms, because they’re easy to add designs to. Patterns, swirls, and colors make this durable surface into a piece of art.
The requirements can be installed on top of any condensed substrate, a solid and strong concrete.
- High glossiness
- Regulatory standards and safety
- Seamless and scratch-proof
- Low maintenance
Epoxy and polyaspartic flooring are similar in that both can be used as midcoats and topcoats. And while both can be used as prime coats, epoxies stand out as the most commonly used primer coating product in the industry. Both epoxy and polyaspartic coatings are compatible with several other resin types, including urethane mortars. This is a huge benefit in both cost and time efficiency, as underlying flooring systems may not need to be replaced prior to installing the new system.
Epoxies and polyaspartics are generally compatible and, if from the same manufacturer, can often be used together on the same floor.
