Epoxy Flakes System

epoxy flake system floor

An epoxy flake system floor is a type of decorative flooring that combines the durability of epoxy resin with the beauteous appeal of flakes incorporated.

It involves applying a coloured epoxy base coat to a floor surface followed by scattering vinyl flakes or chips onto the wet epoxy.

Once the epoxy base coat cures, a clear topcoat is applied to confine the flakes in which provides durability and protection.

This system is popular for its aesthetic appeal, its cause of durability and chemical resistance. Its ease of maintenance makes it a popular choice for residential, commercial, and industrial spaces.

This flooring system consists of:

1. Epoxy resin: A clear, two-component resin that hardens when mixed together. It provides a strong, chemical-resistant base for the flooring.
2. Flakes: Colorful, thin flakes made from materials like polyester, vinyl, or acrylic. They’re broadcast onto the wet epoxy resin to create a decorative, textured finish.
3. System: The epoxy flake system includes multiple layers:
– A primer or base coat
– One or multiple layers of epoxy resin with flakes scattered onto each layer
– A topcoat or clear sealant to protect the flakes and epoxy

The result of this flooring solution:

  • Visually appealing
  • Highly durable and resistant to wear, tear, and chemicals
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • Can be customized to suit various designs and environments

Epoxy flake system floors are popular in commercial and industrial settings – Showrooms, retail stores, hospitals, and factories, garage floors and entertainment areas, due to their durability and aesthetic appeal.”
