Colors and Textures for Epoxy Floors
Epoxy flooring for concrete provides a vast selection of color possibilities. First, you have the base coat that covers the concrete. That is the initial color choice. Then comes selecting micas, flakes or granules to scatter onto the epoxy. These all have their own specific attributes and come in solitary colors or color mixes. Last of all, a clear topcoat seals everything together and protects your Elk Grove epoxy flooring from wear, scratching and stains. Here are some aspects of each manner of texture.
Color micas lend luster to a floor and really make it sparkle! Imagine how granite reflects light, and you have the effect of mica. Even the Mayans valued the decorative qualities of mica, adding it to some of their buildings for a lustrous effect. You can employ this same technique by adding mica flakes for your epoxy flooring.
Flakes are colored chips of different materials and sizes that contrast with your base coat. You can also use preset possibilities of color flakes or create your own combo. With color flakes it’s quick to match a room color, sporting team colors, logo colors – you name it!
Color granules are sand particles that lend texture to an otherwise smooth topcoat. This is critical for installations with a lot of water, grease, oil or other slippery liquids. Granules also create traction for sloping floors and any area where slips and falls are potential hazards. Granules are provided in solid colors or pleasing color possibilities.
