Epoxy Chip Floors

April 16, 2014

Heavy traffic on floors often make the use of decorative flooring products impossible. To make this possible we created System #315 Seamless Epoxy Multi-Colored Flake Chip Floor Resurfacing System. Our #315 Chip System creates a beautiful, durable, and affordable floor that is easy to apply by both professionals and do-it-yourself enthusiasts.

What is new and unique?

At last there is a high quality seamless floor finish which can be provided in every desirable color combination. This system is easy to use, by any skilled do-it-yourselfer or coating professional. For potential customers, both commercial applicators and the do-it-yourselfer, the final result is most certainly beautiful, affordable, and its durability insures the product to be long lasting, waterproof, easy to clean, and maintenance free.

System #315 Seamless Epoxy Multi-Colored Chip Flooring is available in virtually limitless color combinations. If your job is big enough our chips can be pigmented to match all the colors of many major paint companies. We can color match our base coat colors as well. Unless the pigments for your custom colored 315 Basecoat are unusually expensive we can color match for a modest small batch charge, or at no charge for larger orders.  Even our standard color pallet offers you over 45 chip colors that can be blended in any combination and percentage as you want.

By matching the base coat color in the chip, you make the system much less prone to error.  If you should happen to miss a small spot on the floor the base color shows through, looking like it is just more of that chip in that area.

System #315 chips are also available in 7 sizes ranging from a 1 inch chip down to 1/32 inch chip.  Smaller chips give the look a lot like epoxy quartz flooring. The various colors and sizes allow you to give your floor any number of looks like stone, terrazzo, colored quartz, or vibrant linoleum.

Our clear glaze coat does not yellow quickly like other epoxies.  We have some jobs that have been around for 30 years or more where no yellowing can be found, not even under the urinals in high school bathrooms. This kind of durability is perhaps the most important quality of the #315 Chip Flooring System.  Anyone can provide you with a flooring system that is attractive today.  The #315 Chip Flooring System is the flooring system you need if you want it to stay like that for years to come.


Maintaining Epoxy Stone Overlays

Product #17 Epoxy Stone Overlay, with mixed stone sizes

Epoxy Stone Overlays have a beautiful natural look. The Epoxy Stone Overlay looks like wet shinny rock. It allows water to flow more naturally, giving you additional drainage in areas that you are walking where you feet might get wet if it is raining or near a water source like a pool.

Epoxy stone overlays need to be reglazed from time to time.  That is true about epoxy stone overlay systems  available from us or from anyone else. In some parts of the country in the direct sunlight this could be every year.  Other parts of the country with less sun might be 5 or more years.  If you wait to long to reseal your stone it will start failing as the bond breaks down between the individual stones. The stones will then start becoming loose.  If not resealed soon enough eventially the whole system will fail. Sealing at proper intervals with the right material is the only way to prevent this.

If you don’t want a system you need to maintain, we have other (non rock) systems that require little or no maintanance.

Resealing the Epoxy Stone Overlay.

Product #15 Chemical Resistant Epoxy Floor Resurfacing System is typically used for resealing epoxy bonded stone. Product #15 Chemical Resistant Resurfacing system oxidizes much slower than other epoxies, and usually last much longer than other epoxies used for reglazing epoxied stone pebbles. You don’t want to use other epoxies that oxidize excessively unless you are willing to reglaze 1.5 to 2 times more often than with Product #15.

The Product #15 Epoxy to reseal your stone not only adds shine back but actually reinforces the connections between the stone. Never use acrylic and other sealers commonly sold at big box stores to reseal your stone. These non-epoxy sealers add shine back to the stone, but doesn’t do anything to reinforce the bond between the individual stones. Worse yet unless the single component non-epoxy sealers have totally been warn away, they will act as a bond breaker preventing future epoxy resealing from getting to the surfaces they need to get to, in order to give you your original strenth back.

The Right Resin System for the Right Job


We want you to have the “Right Resin Product for the Right Job”, so we are always looking to improve our systems with new epoxy technology and new epoxy resin formulations. Today we are featuring a Methyl Methacrylate MMA not an epoxy.  We are not just about epoxy but we want you to have the right resin system for your job.

 

MMA Concrete Crack Healer and Sealer

684LV – MMA CONCRETE CRACK HEALER and SEALER replaces Epoxy.com Product #685.  MMA CONCRETE CRACK SEALER Product #684LV is a 100% reactive ultra-low viscosity methyl methacrylate resin used as a penetrating crack sealer or to fortify extremely porous concrete substrates. MMA CONCRETE CRACK SEALER Product #684LV is typically used on bridge decks, parking structures, and floors or as a general penetrating sealer to prevent moisture intrusion.

One of the major advantages of MMA CONCRETE CRACK SEALER Product #684LV is its very low viscosity.  It is about the viscosity (thickness) of diesel fuel, so it soaks into the concrete and down into small cracks quickly.  It hardens in about an hour.  When it hardens it hardens with a bond strength to clean concrete that is greater than the tensile strength of that concrete.  In other words you have just chemically welded the two sides of the crack together, so that it is as if the crack had never happened.

The very fast setting time allows you to install you flooring or sealer system the same day that you repair your crack. At Epoxy.com we are all about systems.  Combining the right resin product to create the right system for your job.
