Colors and Textures for Epoxy Floors
Epoxy flooring for concrete performs a tremendous variety of color possibilities. First, you have the base coat that covers the floor. That is the initial color selection. Next comes picking micas, flakes or granules to scatter on top of the epoxy. These all have their own specific properties and come in solitary colors or color mixes. Lastly, a clear topcoat seals everything together and protects your epoxy floor from stains, wear and scratching. Here are some features of each type of texture.
Flakes are colored chips of a variety of sizes and materials that contrast with your base coat. You may also use set combos of color flakes or custom create your own combo. With color flakes it is simple to match a wall color, sporting team colors, company colors – you name it, we can create it.
Color micas lend shine to a floor and really make it be glossy! Imagine how granite reflects natural light, and you have the effect of mica. The Mayans treasured the decorative qualities of mica, adding it to some of their buildings for a lustrous effect. You can employ this same system by requesting mica flakes for your epoxy floors.
Colored Granules for Epoxy Floors
If you need texture as well as color for your epoxy floor, granules are your best choice. Granules are colored particles that give grip to inclined or slick floors. If your floor sees many spills or has potential for falls and slips, granules offer an extra level of traction, and they do it in solid colors or color combos.
