Colors and Textures
Epoxy floors for concrete provide an impressive array of color combos. First, you have the base coat that covers the floor. Then comes selecting flakes, granules, or micas to scatter onto the epoxy. These all have their own specific properties and come in single colors or color mixes. Last of all, a clear topcoat seals everything together and protects your epoxy floor from scratches, stains and wear. Here are some aspects of each kind of texture.
Flakes for Epoxy Flooring
Flakes are colored chips of a variety of sizes and materials that contrast with your base coat. You can also use set combinations of color flakes or imagine your own combination. With color flakes it’s easy to match a wall color, sport team colors, logo colors, you name it, we can create it.
Micas for Epoxy Flooring
Color micas provide sheen to a floor and really make it glow! Visualize how granite reflects the Sun, and you have the effect of mica. The Mayans prized the decorative qualities of mica, adding it to some of their structures for a sparkling effect. You may use this same technique by selecting mica flakes for your epoxy flooring.
Granules for Epoxy Flooring
If you need texture and color for your epoxy floors, granules are the best upgrade. Granules are colored particles that provide grip to sloping or slippery floors. If your concrete undergoes regular spills or holds potential for falls and slips, granules offer an extra level of friction, and they do it in solid colors or color combos.
