Colors and Textures
Epoxy floors for concrete allow for an impressive selection of color possibilities. First, you have the base coat that covers the concrete. That is the starting color selection. Then comes choosing granules, flakes or micas to scatter onto the epoxy. These all have their own specific properties and come in single colors or color mixes. Lastly, a clear topcoat seals everything together and protects your epoxy flooring from scratches, stains and wear. Here are some features of each type of texture.
Flakes for Epoxy Flooring
Chips of solid colors scattered in a randomized way contrast with your floor coat – and you don’t need to stick with a single type of flake. You may add flakes of various color possibilities to further enliven your floor, complementing your interior design. Develop your options based on your favorite team colors, business colors, or something 100% personal. The possibilities are nearly endless!
Micas for Epoxy Floors
Color micas give a sheen to a floor and really make it look glossy! Think how granite reflects sunlight, and you have the effect of mica. The Mayans prized the decorative qualities of mica, adding it to some of their temples for a dazzling effect. You may use this same system by selecting mica flakes for your epoxy floors.
If you desire texture and color for your epoxy floors, granules are your best upgrade. Granules are colored particles that provide grip to sloping or slippery concrete. If your floor undergoes a lot of spills or has the potential for falls and slips, granules offer an extra level of anti-slip, and they do so in solid colors or color combinations.
