Commercial floors can be quite demanding when it comes to style and durability. Ordinary flooring won’t stand a chance against the constant foot traffic during operating hours or other damaging elements of a commercial environment. The qualities of epoxy flooring provide an effective solution to this that can’t be found in ordinary flooring. In this article, we look into the different decorative epoxy coating options for commercial concrete floors.
Flake Blend Epoxy
Flake blend epoxy adds texture and color to floors by incorporating multi-colored flakes into the epoxy resin mixture. The flakes can either be of synthetic or natural mineral origin. Sizes are also available for coarser and finer textures as well as a wide array of color blends. Depending on the design and application technique applied, flake blend epoxy can also achieve natural granite or Terrazzo.
The look of flake blend epoxy naturally complements formal environments like office spaces, academic establishments, and banks. Even so, the texture and color of flake bend epoxy can be customized to match the ambiance of showrooms and automotive establishments.
Metallic epoxy is the preferred option for those who want a distinctly unique look for their floors. The visual effects achieved through metallic epoxy varies depending on the installer’s application technique and the look of the concrete floor itself. To achieve the metallic look, a fine shimmering pigment is blended into the epoxy resin mixture to add color and a glistening effect. Visual effects like swirls, craters, ripples and the look of plasma can be made to add movement and dimension.
Metallic epoxy is ideal for environments that celebrate artistic expressions like museums and art galleries. These are also ideal for adding an elegant accent in spas, restaurants and luxury hotels.

The sky is literally the limit with this type of epoxy flooring.
