The "sandwich" system

Epoxy.com Chip system (Flake Flooring) is easier to use than most people think. This ease of use also automatically means that work can be done more quickly.

Saving time and money, while increasing quality!

Step 1: A layer of flooring resin is applied to a suitable substrate. MVC-737S.JPG (145593 bytes)

Step 2: The application of the color chips (color flakes) can be done by broadcasting the floor to saturation (refusal)MVC-743S.JPG (114449 bytes).



Step 3: The transparent top coat, which is applied in one or more layers, determines the final thickness.

As dazzling as the visual effect is, there is more to making a product successful. There are many factors contributing to the success of Epoxy.com Chip Flooring (Flake Flooring).pablack.jpg (135596 bytes)

Ease of Application

Many floor companies have difficulty finding good floor layers. The introduction of an easy-to-install product will be appreciated by everyone. The Chip Flooring (flake flooring) precludes processing mistakes. It is "fool-proof", because an excess of chips are spread on the still wet floor paint. The extra chips are simply swept up after theMVC-738S.JPG (301739 bytes) floor has dried and can be reused. Taping off is unnecessary. The chips only adhere to the places where the flooring resin has been applied. This inherent simplicity is also the basis for the do-it-yourself product.

Little Preparation

The standard preparation of a floor is necessary when using the Chip Flooring System (flake flooring system). The chips (flakes) cover small cracks and holes, because of the light structure and multi-color effect of the final result. Uneven spots are hardly noticeable.

Cove BaseMvc-266s.jpg (70740 bytes)

MVC-753S.JPG (232521 bytes)An integral cove base can be installed to turn your room into a virtual "bathtub". 

 

Easy to Disinfect

Mvc-269s.jpg (45582 bytes)The highest requirements apply, especially to floors with heavy traffic. The Chip Flooring System offers a finish which is very easy to keep disinfected. The seamless and sealed surface can be cleaned in every possible way. Even with a high pressure water spray. The seamless sealed surface prevents the entry of dirt and bacteria.  We can even add an optional anti-microbial to your Epoxy.com Chip Flooring (flake flooring). vtgreen.jpg (215656 bytes)

Anti-skid

mvc-268s.jpg (61017 bytes)A floor made of Epoxy.com Flooring Chips (flooring flakes) is slightly textured and it is this texture that gives the floor good anti-skid qualities. This is especially important for areas where the floor gets wet such as entry ways, and pool sides.

Durable and ReparabilityMVC-801Sr.jpg (193982 bytes)

The use of Epoxy.com Product #315 provides a durability which can compete with similar types of decorative floors, with a much higher level of durability and reparability. Should the floor show scuffs after intensive use, this can be quickly solved by applying another layer of the transparent top coat. The floor looks new again after just one application.

Color-Fastdh6.jpg (182052 bytes)

Only the best color-fast pigments are used to produce color chips (color flakes). Even under exposure to strong ultraviolet light, hardly any fading occurs. Used with Epoxy.com Product #315 or other flooring resin that does not fade, the color chips create a strong, color-fast system.
