Understanding What Epoxy Is
Custom Concrete Solutions offers a full line of floor coatings and sealing products such as Epoxies and Urethanes that comply with both local and Federal VOC regulations. There are many reasons to choose an epoxy flooring system for your home of business:
Epoxy floor coverings create an impenetrable surface highly resistant to even the most corrosive chemicals making them the perfect flooring option for industrial plants, residential garages, interior pool areas, car dealerships, barns, kennels and aircraft hangers.
Provides a bacteria free surface, ideal for restaurants, hospitals, healthcare facilities, labs, breweries, schools, aerospace facilities, food processing facilities and kennels. Many of these facilities require dust free and easily cleanable floors. Epoxy floor completely seal the floors by creating a seamless surfaces including a 6 inch cove base up the walls.
Decorative epoxies can create a lasting impression with customers or visitors to your business or home. Epoxy floors are very customizable with a wide variety of decorative effects available.
100% solids epoxies have 3-4 times the PSI or compressive strength of regular concrete. This makes them ideal for warehouses, loading docks, or anywhere that cars, trucks, fork-lifts or pallet jacks are used.
With the addition of decorative quartz aggregate broadcast into the epoxy, commonly referred to as a double broadcast, the epoxy system can be perfect for areas with high pedestrian traffic even when wet.
5 Basic Ways to Install Epoxy Floors
Plain Solid Color
Similar to paint in appearance, opaque with a fairly limited number of colors available. Used primarily when you’d want the floor painted but with something that lasts a really long time. See color chart for solid colors below:
Commonly known as double broadcast is where we install 2 coats of epoxy and broadcast decorative colored quartz aggregate into the epoxy. It is then finished with a third coat of clear epoxy as a finish coat. This application is used where a decorative floor is wanted and traction is required. See color chart of quartz finishes below:
Over-applied over a decorative concrete floor or a decorative overlay resulting in a beautiful saturated look.
Paint Flake Epoxy
Basically the same as the Quartz Aggregate except the flake is more for decoration than slip-resistance. Paint flake epoxies also are great for hiding minor imperfections in floors. These are available in an amazing array of colors. Click here to see some sample color charts for micro-chip blends:
