Epoxy Garage Floors: Can Flake Epoxy Flooring Be Used?

Applying epoxy garage floors is one of our specialties at Elite Epoxy Floors. Lately, we’ve been receiving a lot of questions about whether it’s possible to use epoxy flake flooring for their garage floor. We have great news! The answer is yes. 
Epoxy flake floors were coated with an epoxy mix that contained colored flake materials intended to give the epoxy a vibrant, multi-hued look. This type of epoxy mix works great for epoxy garage floors because the flakes provide the surface with subtle grooves to reduce trips and falls. Epoxy flake flooring is extremely durable. The flakes are made of durable materials that can hold up to damage.
Since epoxy flake flooring is still an epoxy mix, when using it as your choice of epoxy garage floors, floor preparation before installation is key. This involves some form of grinding or shot blasting of the floor to profile the concrete for the epoxy. If this isn’t done correctly, the epoxy coating will not adhere correctly. Cracks and other damage to the concrete must also be patched or repaired before the epoxy is applied.
For many, the garage is more than just a place to park their car. It’s their workshop or their personal retreat, that’s why epoxy garage floors are one of the most popular choices for garage flooring. Having epoxy applied to your garage floor will add color and style as well as durability and cleanliness to your fortress of solitude. These flakes are random in shape, and can be mixed with other colors of epoxy resin, chip flakes and pigments to create the perfect custom color look for your garage.
The colorful flakes in epoxy flake flooring aren’t just to look pretty either. Adding flakes can increase traction, making slips and falls in the garage less likely. Safety is the main purpose of the flakes as an additive.
