From the aviation industry to the healthcare industry, epoxy coatings are everywhere, and for good reason. Not only can epoxy flooring can increase an area’s brightness by 200%, it can also be easily cleaned and maintained. And if you’re looking for a more decorative epoxy flooring, you’re in luck. Here, we’ll take a look at two types of decorative epoxy coatings and how they’re made.
Decorative Flake Flooring
Flake floor systems are fairly popular among epoxy flooring contractors, and offer a great way to create a beautiful and durable floor. To do this, contractors must seamlessly blend acrylic chips into the epoxy during its creation. These chips are distributed throughout the epoxy system, and a clear coat is spread over the surface to finish the application.
These floors are low maintenance and extremely durable, much like a standard epoxy coat. They even handle high traffic areas and come in a variety of styles. Flake flooring can be created to have a wide range of colors and can have even designs and logos. And for hospital or doctor office flooring, slip-resistant formulas are available.
Decorative Quartz Flooring
Quartz is a great choice if your current floor is deteriorating or if you desire a decorative floor in place of the current one. They are often found in offices, school cafeterias, washrooms, and other institutional locations. Typically, these coatings are applied at a thickness of one-eighth of an inch, which is ideal for medium traffic locations. Quartz coatings come in a variety of colors, such as red, green, blue, and more.
Epoxy flooring contractors can create a variety of floor textures with quartz flooring. They can be either smooth, semi-smooth, or slip-resistant. This can be done by adding sand to the mixture to create the various textures. Not only that, but large areas can be prepped, installed, cured, and then returned to regular use during working hours.
Decorative epoxy flooring solutions are typically found in locations that need a little more color or a stylistic update. An example of one of these locations would be the walk-in area of a business, where clients meet with staff. These flooring systems are just as strong and as durable as your traditional epoxy flooring
