Decorative Benefits of Epoxy for Floor Coatings
As previously mentioned, epoxies can be used throughout various parts of a floor coating system, as they can also be tailored to target specific needs of an industry or application. However one thing that should be emphasized is that epoxies are also great to use in decorative flooring systems. From a simple solid color scheme, to impressive metallic decorative systems, epoxy resins can play a significant role. For example in decorative flake or quartz systems, an epoxy coating is applied as the basecoat into which multicolored flake or quartz blends are broadcast. To seal in the quartz or flake, it is once again a low VOC epoxy that is applied over the quartz or flake, creating a beautiful, durable floor.
Whatever color scheme or specific design you have in mind, epoxy coatings are often the essential building blocks needed to fulfill your decorative flooring design vision.
