Use this free downloadable 3 part specification to specify resinous flooring systems by Epmar Corporation.
This section includes epoxy floors in solid colors, quartz, and flake floors. Topcoats options are epoxy, polyaspartic, and polyurethane UV chemical resistant finish layers.
What is resinous flooring?
Resinous floors are a type of flooring system that consists of multiple layers of resinous materials, which are applied to a prepared substrate such as concrete to create a durable and attractive surface. These floors are commonly used in commercial, industrial, and residential settings due to their strength, versatility, and aesthetic appeal. Among the different types of resinous floors, epoxy floors in solid colors, quartz floors, and flake floors are popular options. Additionally, topcoat options such as epoxy, polyaspartic, and polyurethane UV chemical-resistant finish layers can be applied to enhance the performance and appearance of the flooring. Here’s an overview of each of these components:
Epoxy Floors in Solid Colors
- Epoxy flooring is a versatile and durable option is used in various settings; including garages, warehouses, laboratories, and commercial spaces.
- Solid color epoxy floors are created by mixing epoxy resin with pigments to achieve a uniform and consistent color throughout the floor.
- These floors are known for their high-gloss finish, which can be customized to meet specific design preferences.
- They offer excellent chemical resistance, making them suitable for environments where exposure to chemicals or spills is common.
- Epoxy floors are relatively easy to clean and maintain, making them a popular choice for areas that require a hygienic surface.
- Quartz flooring incorporates decorative quartz aggregates into the epoxy resin to create a textured and visually appealing surface.
- The quartz particles come in various sizes and colors, allowing for customization in terms of appearance.
- These floors are highly durable, abrasion-resistant, and can withstand heavy foot traffic.
- The textured surface provides slip resistance, making quartz floors suitable for areas where safety is a concern, such as commercial kitchens and healthcare facilities.
- Quartz floors are also resistant to chemicals and are easy to clean.
- Flake flooring involves the inclusion of decorative vinyl flakes or chips within the epoxy resin.
- This creates a multi-colored, speckled appearance that is visually appealing and can be customized to match the desired aesthetic.
- Flake floors are known for their slip resistance, making them ideal for areas that require a safe walking surface.
- They are often used in garages, recreational areas, showrooms, and commercial spaces.
- Like other epoxy-based flooring systems, flake floors offer durability and chemical resistance.
- After applying the base layers of epoxy, quartz, or flake, it is common to add a topcoat to enhance the floor’s performance and appearance.
- Topcoat options include epoxy, polyaspartic, and polyurethane UV chemical-resistant finishes.
- Each of these topcoats offers different advantages. Epoxy topcoats provide additional protection and gloss, while polyaspartic and polyurethane topcoats offer enhanced UV resistance and chemical resistance.
- Topcoat depends on the specific requirements of the flooring system and the environment in which it will be installed.
