Tiles are so yesterday. What you really need are some 3D epoxy polymer floors. This is the latest fad in the fancy floor world. As explained on the website of fountech, the process involves laying down a layer of self-leveling screed (the material used to make floors even)followed by the desired image. This is then treated with a transparent two-component polymer to give the image depth. A level of protective lacquer is the final step.
The result is a 3D image that gives the perception of depth by not being directly under your feet (like a sticker or painting would), and which is impervious to all sorts of damage that would usually affect floor decorations. It’s also easy to clean!
According to Fountech, although this technology was first used in malls and other public places, it can be easily used in any home. And while the most popular use seems to be in bathrooms, the 3D floor can can also be used in theliving room or elsewhere. Such floors give the impression of space to apartments of somewhat limited size.
Not to mention that makes it look like you’re living under the deck of a glass-bottom ship.
Decorative epoxy floor coating is a 100% solids, two component epoxy, specially formulated with a metallic pigment. It is roller or squeegee applied to your floor. This coating requires a primer coat, metallic 100% solids epoxy/Polyurea/PU/Polyaspatric basecoat, an optional epoxy clearcoat.
The finished look is a smooth, glass like finish that has a unique and subtle sparkle. No two floors will ever look the same. There are endless creative techniques that can be used to create a style that you can call your own.
This is a wonderful polyurethane top coat with a very high gloss finish and the highest solid count of 92% currently available on the market. This comes in both clear and pigmented. You can also use fast cure that allows a 24 hour turn around time for those who do not want to wait 7 days to drive on it.
