DECORATIVE CONCRETE COATINGS & EPOXY
When unsightly, old and damaged concrete is no longer acceptable the option for concrete resurfacing should be your top choice. Concrete floors over time will often develop cracks, show surface spalling, stains, and begin to deteriorate. Once it has been determined that something needs to be done about the old concrete, the fun begins! Concrete resurfacing systems open the door to wide range of design and decor options. There are purely functional concrete resurfacing products that will look and feel similar to standard grey concrete floor, but for those who want to take their concrete flooring to whole new level, Jamrock decorative concrete systems should be considered for residential and commercial applications.
EPOXY FLOOR COATINGS
Epoxies have become a generic term for many different types of resin flooring systems. Epoxy is the fully cured end result of usually two components or resins that have been mixed together. Epoxies are known for their adhesive qualities and have been in use for many years. You can find epoxy being used for crack repair, primer systems, and final top coats for floors and surfaces. Epoxy floor coatings are available in an unlimited color palette as well as clear epoxy. Epoxies are often used as the bond coat for subsequent top coats of similar material or of higher abrasion and chemical resistance such as Polyurethane or Polyaspartic coatings. An epoxy primer coat can be a “%” solids or water based. Usually for thicker applications, 100% solids epoxy is used due to its ability to cure fast and its ultimate strength.
Here are just a few of the benefits of epoxy coatings:
- Seamless and easy to clean. Mop and light detergent for easy maintenance.
- Hard, durable, and wear resistant even with vehicular traffic
- Attractive and customizable. Able to create any pattern or design with color and design.
- Slip resistant. Epoxies can have anti slip additives to create a grip and non-slip surface.
- Low VOC – Epoxy floor coatings can be low or No VOC’s for environmentally friendly coatings.
- Fast curing and customizable curing times for cold or hot applications.
- Cost effective. Large areas can be coated for a reasonable cost and overall long term solution.
THE LATEST TECHNOLOGIES
Epoxies have evolved over the years and have just gotten better and better. Today with the advent of metallic epoxy floors or reflector enhancer flooring systems we are taking epoxies and resinous flooring to a whole new level. These metallic epoxy floor coatings use metallic powder to create depth and originality never seen in a coating before. Reflector enhancer flooring Systems combine the durability and strength of Epoxy with the decor options of custom paint and natural chemical reactions that provide a truly unique floor.
THIN STAMPED OVERLAYS
Creates the high definition and authentic look of conventional full depth stamped concrete without having to tear out and replace the existing concrete surface. Generally applied between 3/8″ to 1/4″ thick, thin stamped overlays created actually have increased strength and performance characteristics as compared to conventional concrete. Colors, patterns and textures are virtually limitless and therefore one reason why architects and property owners find thin stamped overlays one of their favorite applications for exterior and interior projects.
