Most of us are familiar with the concept of simple paint or even just colored tape. However, there are an array of floor coating options that not only provide beautiful color, but will protect and enhance the performance of your floors as well.

Here are several colorful options for your facility’s floors:

Solid Color Epoxy Coatings

Unlike paint, epoxy floor coatings are a two-part system in which a resin and a hardener are combined. The resulting chemical reaction creates an extremely hard and durable surface that won’t chip away or peel like paint may. Epoxy resin comes in a wide variety of colors, and can be applied in any combination to create images and patterns or to indicate traffic flow.

If you’re looking for a floor coating design that is purely decorative, there are multicolor epoxy floor coatings to choose from as well. Options include coatings with a metallic sheen, marble patterns or tiny quartz crystals.

Polished Concrete with Dye

Polishing is actually a mechanical process done to the surface of your floor, not simply an applied coating. Concrete can be polished to an almost glass-like shine if desired, and the floor can be stained with dye ahead of time to further beautify your facility.  

Custom solutions

If you need detailed striping work that will require the use of colored tape, certain floor coatings will provide a better grip so that the tape won’t peel up or discolor the floor. If your facility has other requirements for your flooring, such as moisture vapor control, anti-slip properties, or even USDA-grade sanitation levels, you may need a combination of solutions.
