Types of Epoxy Floors– Quartz, Chip, Solid, Metallic

Epoxy floors are durable, attractive, and versatile. There is no wonder they are among the most popular and requested flooring systems on the market today. At Blackrock Industrial flooring companies, we offer a range of options for epoxy floorings and can help you choose the right one for your needs. Here is what you need to know about the types of epoxy floors and where they are most effective.

Quartz Epoxy

Epoxy quartz flooring is made using 100 percent solids epoxy that is blended with a quartz aggregate. This type of system is both durable and decorative, offering resistance against wear and abrasion in virtually any environment. You can use quartz flooring in a wide range of residential and commercial spaces, including:

  • Pool decks
  • Exterior walkways
  • Parking garages
  • Healthcare facilities
  • Veterinary clinics
  • Restrooms
  • Locker rooms

Our epoxy quartz flooring systems are incredibly popular, with unmatched slip resistance and resistance to chemicals and UV exposure.

Chip Epoxy

Epoxy chip flooring systems are another popular flooring option. Chip flooring, much like quartz, consists of 100 percent solids epoxy, but instead of quartz aggregate, chip flooring incorporates vinyl flakes. The system is then protected by a topcoat for added resistance to chemical and UV damage. Chip coatings are excellent in many environments, including:

  • Schools
  • Grocery stores
  • Healthcare facilities
  • Garages
  • Retail showrooms
  • Recreational facilities
  • Restaurants
  • Shop floors

Chip coatings are especially ideal in environments with heavy foot traffic and light vehicle traffic. They are strong, durable, and require minimal maintenance. They have an attractive appearance that is similar to terrazzo. Chip epoxy routinely outperforms VCT systems while requiring less upkeep. These flooring systems are even less vulnerable to moisture damage and vapor intrusion.

Solid Epoxy

Solid epoxy flooring systems can be applied directly for a beautiful high-gloss finish, but they can also be mixed with a variety of aggregates to create a durable, slip-resistant surface. Solid epoxy flooring is an excellent choice in high-use areas such as:

  • Shop floors
  • Warehouses
  • Car dealerships
  • Laboratories
  • Airplane hangars
  • Manufacturing facilities
  • Retail facilities
  • Offices

Our epoxy flooring contractor can apply a solid epoxy flooring system in a range of thicknesses depending on your needs and environmental specifications.

Metallic Epoxy

With metallic epoxy systems, you can transform the look of your space. To create these systems, we incorporate highly refined metallic pigments into our 100 percent solids epoxy coatings. This enables us to create a variety of unique and brilliant color combinations and variations, increasing the visual depth and the beauty of any space.

A metallic epoxy flooring system is ideal for any facility that wants to take its flooring to the next level, including:

  • Showrooms
  • Restaurants
  • Stadium concourses
  • Event centers
  • Lobbies
  • Entryways
  • Car dealerships

We can fully customize your metallic epoxy flooring system to mimic a variety of surfaces and images, including water, marble, granite, stone, and more. We can incorporate additional features to ensure slip-resistance, chemical resistance, and added durability as well as impact resistance and anti-microbial features.
