The benefits of decorative flake floor coatings aren’t just aesthetic, epoxy floor coatings and other fluid-applied flooring systems offer many additional benefits:
- Strong and Durable. Epoxy and urethane floor coatings create a barrier of strength over of the concrete substrate onto which they are applied, resulting in greater scratch resistance, better load-bearing capabilities, and ultimately, a prolonged lifespan of the concrete floor.
- Easy to Clean. Fluid-applied flooring systems have the benefit of being virtually seamless, eliminating most cracks and creases where dust, mold, and bacteria tend to gather and grow. Thanks to resinous flooring’s monolithic surface, it is easy to clean by spraying with a hose if necessary, and it is also durable enough to withstand the use of many harsh chemical cleaners.
- Customizable Functional Features. With applications across numerous industries, decorative flake systems can be customized to better suit the functional needs of a particular setting. Such as the ability to choose from various textures to help aid against slip and fall incidents, or decorative systems that can withstand drastic changes in temperature and can help inhibit the growth of microorganisms, and a range of other custom formulations.
Start Date: 08/28/2017
Project: 1088 sq/ft
Location: Detroit, Michigan
Duration: 3 Days
– VCT removal
– Glue removal with a planetary grinder
– Profile the substrate by mechanical means to ensure the proper Concrete Surface Profile.
– Patch cracks, holes, and joints in the floor.
– Cracks and holes will need to be sanded smooth after they harden
– Cove 76 LF with decorative chip. The remainder of the room will have vinyl base
– Clean the floor thoroughly
– Prime the substrate
– 1st Body/Flake into pigmented epoxy coating
– Once the body coat is dry we will scrape and detail the chips
– 2nd Body/Flake into clear epoxy coating
– The floor will be thoroughly cleaned again.
– The final clear coat will be polyaspartic with excellent UV stability, wear, and chemical resistance. There will be a easy to clean orange peel texture on the floor.
