How Long Does Metallic Epoxy Flooring Last?


Metallic epoxy flooring is one of the most durable systems on the market when high-quality materials are installed by experienced professionals. You can’t get the same durability from do-it-yourself products available in home improvement stores. 

Metallic epoxy flooring is as beautiful as it is practical.

A Flooring Option With Superior Durability And Performance

When you use Elite Epoxy Floors, your flooring will be able to take some serious abuse. Up to seven times stronger than concrete alone, it can handle impact from a variety of objects, the use of heavy machinery, and will even resist the effects of heavy foot and vehicle traffic for as long as twenty years. 

Because of the high-gloss finish, however, metallic epoxy flooring is more susceptible to scratches than some other types of epoxy flooring. For commercial and residential interior jobs, metallic floors can be protected by applying four layers of wax. This way scratches will be embedded in the wax and not the floor and can be recoated relatively easily. Whenever the floor is stripped and rewaxed, it will look brand new again. For exterior residential jobs, such as garages, polyurethane can be used. It offers the best scratch and UV protection for metallic coatings.

These coatings are not only extremely durable but have many other advantages as well. Metallic epoxy flooring is easy to clean and can be customized to be low yellowing, seamless, antimicrobial, slip-resistant, and chemical resistant. These floors will meet all of your performance needs and look amazing for years to come. 

The Unmatched Beauty Of Metallic Epoxy Flooring

Metallic epoxy flooring is as beautiful as it is practical. The mica pigments added to clear epoxy are designed to be dispersed in a variety of binders to produce a unique three-dimensional appearance with the color or colors showing through. 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, swirly look similar to marble. 

The key to a mesmerizing metallic floor is the artist behind it. Unlike a solid or chip system, metallic epoxy produces floors that are one of a kind. Installers each have their own techniques for applying metallics. No two rooms with metallic epoxy coatings are the same because even using the same technique, the particular ways the pigments move and catch the light will be different every time. The installers at Elite Epoxy have the skills and experience to give you the beautiful and unique floor you want in your home or business.
