Epoxy Flooring Colors and Textures
Epoxy flooring for concrete offers a tremendous variety of color combinations. First, you have the base coat that covers the concrete. That’s your first color option. Then comes the choice of adding flakes, micas or granules onto the epoxy. These all have their own specific properties and come in solitary colors or color combinations. Finally, a clear topcoat seals everything together and protects your floor from scratching, stains, and wear.
Here are the benefits of each potential addition to your epoxy base coat:
Color flakes are solid chips of color that add contrast to your base color. You can also use set combinations of color flakes or design your own combination. With color flakes it’s easy to match a wall color or to design a garage or other space to match team colors, company colors, you name it!
Color micas add sparkle to a floor and really make it shine! Think of the way that natural granite reflects sunlight, and you have the effect from mica. The ancient Mayans prized the decorative qualities of mica, adding it to the stucco on some of their temples to provide a lustrous effect. You can use this same technique by adding mica flakes of one color, or in color combinations, to your epoxy flooring.
Color granules are sandy particles that add texture to the otherwise glossy topcoat. This is essential for installations that see a lot of grease, water or other slippery substances. Granules also add grip to sloping floors and any area where slips and falls are potential hazards. Granules are available in solid colors or pleasing color combinations.
