At the intersection of individuality and functionality is metallic epoxy flooring.

Installing Metallic Epoxy for Restaurants
STEP 1 – Diamond grind and/or shot blast to repair chips and cracks to smooth out existing slab.
STEP 2 – Apply primer that will bond with the substrate.
STEP 3 – A formulated metallic base coat is applied to the entire area.
STEP 4 – Mix the pigment to create the desired color and effects to the epoxy and apply over base coat.
STEP 5 – Add a protective topcoat to provide greater resistance to scratch and scuff marks.
Creating the Desired Effect
Blending metallic coatings can create different looks and offer an array of pigments on a single floor. While multiple colors can be mixed, layering too many colors can have adverse effects on the design.
- Single Color: Increase the intensity of a single color floor using the same color base and Metallic coat.
- Two-Tone Flooring: Layer a Metallic color over a different colored base coat.
- Three Color Effect: By layering two or three different metallic colors on a base coat you create a blend of hues that can have a dramatic effect on a space.
