What Is Epoxy Flake Flooring?
Epoxy coatings are resinous protectants that manufacturers make from four ingredients: a plasticizer, monomeric resin, a chemical accelerator, and a hardener. You can find epoxy and other resinous coatings on thousands of medical facilities, warehouses, and restaurant floors across the United States. They give concrete substrates unbeatable chemical, abrasion, and moisture resistance.
Concrete floors are naturally porous. Portland cement mixes form billions of tiny holes during their curing process, allowing moisture, fungal spores, and chemicals to seep into your substrate and create structural challenges. Concrete surfaces with no epoxy or polyaspartic coating often suffer from dents, chips, stains, and depressions after only a few months, especially in high-traffic areas like residential and commercial garages.
Epoxy flake flooring combines the hardening properties of a resinous coating with the aesthetic upgrade of a textured floor. When clients request an epoxy flake floor, our technicians add a decorative layer of UV-stable chips between the epoxy base coat and polyaspartic topcoat, adding more depth and character to an otherwise traditional design.
The Benefits of Epoxy Flake Flooring
Epoxy flake flooring offers numerous benefits for every type of property.
No More Time-Consuming Maintenance Procedures
Garage floors are among the most overlooked areas of a home or commercial structure, often sustaining stains and discoloration from oil droplets, battery acid spills, and hot tire tracks. Without an epoxy and polyaspartic coating, removing old gum, paint drops, and stains from vehicle maintenance fluids require a miracle.
Clients with epoxy flake flooring systems only require soap, water, and a mop to remove stubborn stains. Epoxy floors are also popular among business owners who oversee fleet garages. They keep garage floors compliant with safety standards while having them look hygienic and well-maintained.
Higher Resale Values
Research from the National Association of Realtors reveals that indoor and outdoor curb appeal plays a significant role in the resale value of residential and commercial properties. Epoxy flake flooring preserves the brand-new look of your structural investments while improving its aesthetics.
It is a popular addition for homeowners and property managers who want to list a single- or multi-family home for sale online and want higher-quality bids from more committed buyers.
Our technicians can work with third-party interior designers to achieve your aesthetic goals. We also help customers visualize their designs by having them pick the hexadecimal colors and volume of their vinyl flakes with computer programs.
Epoxy flake flooring can work with any floor type, and our technicians cover hundreds of square meters of tile, wood, stone, and concrete floors with decorative sealers annually. Epoxy is not UV-stable alone, so we partner it with polyaspartic coatings to prevent the surfaces near your garage entrance from yellowing.
A decorative flake finish contains vinyl chips that will never discolor under direct sunlight, no matter how well-exposed they remain for years.
Whether you own an underground garage, multi-level parking structure, or an attached structure to a residential building, our epoxy flake flooring can protect your floors for decades while keeping them beautiful.
How Professionals Install Epoxy Flake Flooring in Jacksonville
Our licensed flooring technicians at Spartan Coatings have a time-efficient work structure that allows us to finish client projects on schedule and under budget.
Priming Your Floors for Base Coat Application
When you request brand-new epoxy flake flooring from Spartan Coatings, our technicians will create a project timeline that suits your schedule. Epoxy coats can require up to seven days to cure in confined spaces. Once you approve our proposed timeline and budget, we will get to work.
Our technicians will arrive at your home or place of business with truck-loaded diamond grinders, shot blasters, and ventilators. We will prep your entire floor by smoothening it and patching up cracks.
Applying Epoxy Coatings on Floors
We will apply a coat of resinous epoxy with 100% solids. We use Simiron, an American brand that allows us to stake a 20-year warranty on every epoxy flake flooring job.
Creating a Decorative Layer
Our flooring professionals will hand-cast vinyl chips before the epoxy base coat cures. The chip size, density, and color are customer-selected in the project planning phase.
After your epoxy coat cures, our technicians remove protruding and excess vinyl chips before applying a 100% aliphatic polyaspartic topcoat. Polyaspartic creates a hard-wearing waterproof membrane that is also fire-resistant and abrasion-proof.
