What is a Metallic Floor Coating System?

Before delving any further into this topic, we feel it is important to first outline the basics associated with a metallic floor coating system.

In short, this is an epoxy-based flooring system that uses a primer of pre-tinted epoxy, a basecoat that integrates a low viscosity metallic epoxy, and a topcoat that utilizes a urethane that is either water based or solvent based.

Metallic-colored, glitter-like special pigments are combined with an epoxy resin and poured directly on the floor or a substrate in order to create a highly distinguished and highly aesthetic floor.

The Benefits

Now that you understand what a metallic floor coating system is, it is time to learn why it is beneficial to use such a system in the kitchen:

  1. The kitchen is an area that is subjected to an immense amount of traffic and a wide variety of substances due to the meal preparation and cooking that occurs in the area. The flooring must be highly resistant and easy to clean. The epoxy resin in metallic floor coatings is able to withstand all of the traffic and the exposure to ingredients, oils, and other food and beverage products that may find their way onto the floor. When something spills, clean up is very easy. Additionally, staining will not occur.
  2. There are two elements that are commonly see, experienced, and occur within the kitchen. The first is moisture and the second is heat. Metallic floor coating systems are resistant to both. When an epoxy flooring is put into place, it will not be subjected to damage if exposed to the natural moisture levels and heat levels that are known to occur in kitchens. You will find that these elements do not result in cracks, splits, or other types of damage. It is a highly durable floor that is considered to be ideal for the kitchen.
  3. Since mentioning spills, moisture, and heat, we move on to the next advantage of integrating a metallic floor coating system into the kitchen – that is safety. It is not at all uncommon for people to slip, fall, or experience other types of injuries within the kitchen. An epoxy resin flooring system creates a sturdy and safe walk environment. Additionally, the epoxy will reflect light that is within the room so that visibility is greatly enhanced for those that use the room. Furthermore, it is a substance that is resistant to accidental slips.
