Colors and Textures
Epoxy flooring for concrete provides a surprising selection of color possibilities. First, you have the base coat that covers the concrete. That is the initial color to select. Afterwards comes selecting micas, granules or flakes to add on top of the epoxy. These all have their own specific qualities and come in solitary colors or color mixes. Lastly, a clear topcoat seals everything together and protects your epoxy from stains, wear and scratching. Here are some functions of each form of texture.
Flakes for Epoxy Flooring
Flakes are colored chips of various materials and sizes that contrast with your floor coat. You may also use preset combinations of color flakes or help create your own combo. With color flakes you can match a room color, sporting team colors, business colors, you name it, we can create it.
Color micas provide sheen to a floor and really make it look shiny! Imagine how granite reflects light, and you have the effect from mica. The Mayans prized the decorative qualities of mica, adding it to some of their buildings for a lustrous effect. You can use this same system by requesting mica flakes for your epoxy floors.
Colored Granules for Epoxy Floors
Color granules are sand particles that provide texture to your otherwise glossy topcoat. This is essential for areas with a lot of water, oil, grease or other slippery fluids. Granules also create friction for sloping floors and any area where falls and slips are potential hazards. Granules are sold in solid colors or pleasing color combinations.
