Application Guidelines

The process of creating a metallic epoxy floor is relatively straightforward and contains four steps. Preparation of the concrete surface will ensure a strong bond between the coatings and surface.

  1. Application of a Primer/Sealer
  2. Singular coloured Epoxy coat as the base
  3. Singular or several coats of Epoxy containing metallic pigment – During this process the applicator uses various techniques and tools to create a unique finish.
  4. Sealing with a protective coating

Top Tips to Achieving a Metallic Epoxy Floor

  1. It is virtually impossible to explain what the appearance of an epoxy metallic floor will be as each floor is unique. Take time to explain this to your client.
  2. If this is the first time applying a metallic floor, it is worth doing some experimentation first and providing your client with samples to ensure both parties are aware of the outcome.
  3. Always follow the manufacturer’s process to ensure a quality long-lasting floor.
