Metallic Epoxy Coating That Bring Interior Concrete Flooring To Life

Metallic epoxy is one of the hottest trends for decorative concrete today. While this finish has been in production for a few years now its rapidly becoming a choice concrete finish. The metallic epoxy comes in many colors to choose from and looks best but limited to two colors. There are many ways Impression Concrete Elements can install the metallic epoxy floor coating. The most popular is suggested a main color with a contrasting highlight color. A 50/50 is an awesome look to appear as a marble. Metallic epoxy is the new generation of decorative concrete in comparison to acid staining.This flooring can be left with a glass like appearance or can be toned to a satin finish with a high wear urethane. The high wear urethane is a three part component that includes aluminum oxide.

Metallic epoxy flooring creates a beautiful marble illusion that will bring any space  to a show room. This decorative concrete finish is smooth and can be left a glass appearance or can be top coated. The top coat will add the  extra durability for high traffic  areas with a high wear urethane. This urethane includes an aluminum oxide formula that is nearly impossible to scratch and knocks down the sheen from glass finish to a satin/semigloss. This epoxy finish has many colors to choose from and has a better effect when two colors are used together. The main color is applied and highlight color to add more of a 3d effect.

Metallic Epoxy, Epoxy Coatings And Garage Flooring Ideas

Metallic epoxy coatings are a great way to add some life to a plain grey slab of concrete. This epoxy coating is durable and adds a show room look as well.  Garage floors are mechanically troweled when poured and add a sealer in this process. Before Epoxy floors are installed the sealer needs to be mechanically removed to give the proper profile to accept an epoxy. This step is vitally important to ensure a proper installation.

This garage floor we used Elite Cretes Epoxy and Metallic powder colors gunmetal for the main color and pearl for the highlight. One color may be used, two colors reacting together has an awesome effect.  The metallic powder in the epoxy move constant until the epoxy flashes (starts to dry) and essentially get the marble finish. In garages I recomend a high traffic urethane that has aluminum oxide to get the maximum durability to the surface. This erethane tones the epoxy from a high gloss to a satin/semi gloss finish.

Driveway Overlay, Brick Border In Overland Park Kansas

Driveway overlay

This driveway was a perfect candidate for a concrete overlay. It had some cracks in various places that I opened up and filled with a hydraulic concrete that when cured out it will reach 9000 PSI (pounds per square inch). That product is double the strength of the original slab and a cement overlay material will bond nicely. With todays technology and new materials on the market I would say most driveways can be saved from a tear out and replace. Now there are some scenarios that an overlay just isn’t possible. For example if its fractured completely through or if there is just too much rubble for a material to bond to.

Decorative concrete is becoming more popular for curb appeal for the added beauty to a home. There are many different techniques and colors to provide a more custom look for a home owners needs. Featured in this article I installed 3 layers of the cement overlay material. The first coat is the bond coat which is the darkest color of chocolate. The second layer is half the integral color of the base and skip troweled to cover about 70 percent. The last layer is the lightest integral color skip troweled uniformly to show the first two coats. I used 3 different colors of brown stain from a light, medium and dark. Two stain colors have a chemical reaction with the main brown to give a custom effect.

A brick border was added for a more decorative feel to match the brick on the landscape and the house. I applied a grey overlay for the base (grout color) then used a special fiber tape for each brick. The second layer is a brick red which is also an integral color mixed in the concrete mix. I pulled the tape then stained each individual brick to make them look more realistic.

I let the stain dry over night then applied two coats of a penetrating high solids sealer. This sealer is impervious to salt and is UV protected. For maintenance this driveway will need to be re-sealed every four years to keep it looking new. For more exterior concrete overlay ideas take a look here.

Tuscan Slate Tile Overlay Kansas City

This Tuscan Slate tile overlay on this basement floor was completed with Elite Crete products. The floor was mechanically profiled to remove the cure and seal to expose raw concrete. A base coat was applied with the color for the grout and fiber tape was placed for Tile. An extra thin coat was applied to cover the tape with a dark chocolate. The first skip trowel layer with less color which covers about 70 percent of base coat. The last skip trowel coat had just a little color to tone down the white thin finish overlay material.

I stained the floor with two different colors using chocolate and a brown from Butterfield. Using two different types of these stains cause a cool chemical reaction that you cant get using two of the same medium. After the concrete stain dried I used another color of brown to slightly antique at 100 percent flood. After this dried I pulled the tape to expose the grout color and sealed with clear epoxy.
