Epoxies have evolved over the years and have gotten better and better. Today with the advent of metallic epoxy floors or REFLECTOR™ Enhancer Flooring Systems we are taking epoxies and resinous flooring to a whole new level. These metallic epoxy floor coatings use metallic powder to create depth and originality never seen in a coating before. Epoxies have become a generic term for many different types of resin flooring systems. Epoxy is the fully cured end result of usually two components or resins that have been mixed together. Epoxies are known for their adhesive qualities and have been in use for many years. Pete’s Custom Concrete uses epoxies for crack repair, primer systems, and final top coats for beautiful one-of-a-kind floors and surfaces. Epoxy floor coatings are available in an unlimited color palette as well as clear epoxies. Epoxies are often used as the bond coat for subsequent top coats of similar material or of higher abrasion and chemical resistance such as polyurethane or polyaspartic . An epoxy primer coat can be a “%” solids or water based. Usually for thicker applications, 100% solids epoxy is used due to its ability to cure fast and its ultimate strength. A popular floor finish for many commercial and residential floors is the Epoxy Color Flake Floor System.
Here is a breakdown of how it is installed:
Epoxy floor coatings allow for the color variety that comes with paint but the durability of a much stronger material. Epoxy floor coverings can take foot traffic, vehicular traffic and sustain wear and tear from many industrial tools and equipment.
Here are just a few of the benefits of epoxy coatings:
