Coating system of Metallic Epoxy Floor Coating
everything you need to know about coating system of Metallic Epoxy Floor Coating. Hard, Glossy and Deep Looking Finish that comes in different colors.
Metallic epoxy floor coatings should be fully studied as they are a totally new trend which is slowly finding its way into the market as a very high-tech and exotic looking flooring option. These finishes make a glossy and deep looking floor with a variety of different colors and virtuality. Some works will bring a beautiful three-dimensional face, giving the illusion of craters, ripples, and swirling rivers of metallic-looking plasma.
self-levelling epoxy coating
Made up of 100% solids epoxy with metallic pigments added, this self-levelling epoxy coating is structured to manipulate to create the different visual effects. Once applied to the floor, various additives like denatured solvent can use to diffuse and move around the metallic pigments in the epoxy. This is what can create the face of flowing rivers and spots of separated looking molten metal that sits upon the surface of the coating.
Two-tone effects can also produce with the introduction of a second color at the time of application.
The system made up of a base coat, layer of metallic effect in chosen color/s and 1 or 2 Polyurethane coating to seal and protect the surface.
Will Correct preparation Prevent Poor Performance?
The quality of performance depends on so many factors. Surface preparation is THE MOST important part of installing a durable coating. Epoxies look for a sound and clean surface to bind to, otherwise they will peel off, and our preferred methods of preparing a concrete surface are Diamond Grinding or Shot Blasting then preparing the surface. These methods will guarantee the floor providing many years of service.
RIGHT CONTRACTOR? How to choose?
Regarding the aforementioned point, there are some sorts of procedure the customers should follow. As soon as we have painted your garage it will be part of our everyday life; as a result, it will pay to do a few simple searches to ensure you are making the right decision in picking up the most preferable epoxy coating for the house. We suggest completing the following checks to make sure you are receiving the best value for money.
make sure the quality of the reviews are exact
First, Normally research or complete background checks by doing a few simple searches online
Read their online reviews and make sure the quality of the reviews are exact. Look at their website/project photos to understand if their photos are genuine; and not just taken from stock photos easily found online.
Second, Ask for any local references at hand; next, call them to see on the quality of their work and performance of their products
The most trusted way to check a company’s service or product is to speak directly to other customers just like you. They will always bring you the truth and will honestly tell you how their experience with the business has been; with no ulterior motive.
check one or a few of their jobs
Third, if possible, check one or a few of their jobs that are more than 7 months old
Unfortunately, most jobs look exactly the same when they are first completed; and it can take about 2 – 7 months for the coating to inspect any signs of failure. This is a key point in clarifying the quality of the floor, as photos can be easily manipulated to look better and better online.
Fourth, as we are all looking for ways to have projects accomplished as cost effectively as possible you need to permanently make sure you are not sacrificing quality
