What is the Process?
The floor is ground (and sometimes shot blasted or scarified) using a diamond grinder to create the necessary profile for adhesion. Holes and cracks are filled in with a special paste epoxy filler. If needed, a moisture barrier coat is applied. Next the first primer coat is applied and is almost always a dark-based epoxy to serve as a canvas for the translucent metallic coat. Note that the color of the basecoat has a significant impact on the overall appearance of the floors since the metallic coat is translucent. Once the primer is dry, the metallic pigment coat is applied in a manner that allows the colors to flow into the marbleized pattern. In the final step, a clear top coat is applied to enhance the durability, smooth the texture, and give a semi-gloss or matte finish to your floor.
The total projected thickness is 30-35 mils (less than 1/8 inch).
