Decorative concrete flooring has allowed designers to achieve an endless variety of colors and textures. With decorative floorings color can be mixed into the concrete before the slab is placed or for already installed floors. Along with its aesthetic appeal, decorative concrete floorings increase the strength, durability, and longevity of concrete surfaces. Today and in the future, the industry trend is shifting towards developing more efficient, sustainable processes in flooring practices. Discussed below are two innovative flooring types being executed across the country.
Needless to mention, 3D floors are not 3D(three-dimensional), but simple two-dimensional floors. However, it is possible to create a three-dimensional effect depending on where from are looking at, the type of image, colours and the method of application as well as the lighting effect. 3D Epoxy floors have become the rage of social media. From bathrooms to living rooms, lobbies to bedrooms, swimming pools to Jacuzzis, 3D floorings have captured the imagination of the general public as well as designers. They are popular across the globe for their ‘WOW’ factor as well as its uniqueness.
The most significant advantage of the epoxy 3D floor is the stunning visual effect. By choosing the right 3D floor design, color and pattern, with the help of self-leveling epoxy coatings you can even visually increase the room space. It can help to implement the infinite imagination of the designer and attracts the eyes endlessly.
The process of laying 3D flooring can be simplified in the following steps:
- Surface Preparation
- Epoxy Primer
- Moisture-barrier system(optional)
- Epoxy Leveling Layer
- Transparent Epoxy Sealer
It is suggestive that the laying of the 3D flooring is best left to be executed by skilled and experienced professionals to get the best effect as well as durability desired. Some of the critical aspects such as the transparency, toughness, abrasion resistance and clarity of the topcoat, method, direction and alignment of 3D image vis-à-vis the room angle and lighting, quality material used for the 3Dimage as well as other materials pertaining to epoxy flooring, all these play a vital part in the outcome the finished floor.
Metallic epoxy flooring
With the advent of high-quality metallic pigments along with high-performance epoxy resins, creating a fusion of colours and designs on the floor to a breath-taking effect has become possible. From retail stores to restaurants, villas to condominiums, high-end clinics to multiplexes, clients wish to give the visitors an unique experience in walking over a floor. The colours, designs and patterns that can be created with these metallic epoxy materials are simply breathtaking.
The metallic pigments are mixed into an epoxy resin and then poured onto the floor or substrate. When these pigments become agitated with a paintbrush or roller, they gather, separate, twist and turn to reflect light at different angles. Eventually, the epoxy hardens and the metallic pigments are locked into place and give a three-dimensional look. Metallic epoxy floor coatings can be customized to be extremely durable, low yellowing, seamless, antimicrobial, slip-resistant, and chemical resistant. Not only will these floors look beautiful, but they will meet all of your performance needs.
