Epoxy, Polyurea and Polyaspartic Color Flake System

These are the industry standard when it comes to professional garage floor coating systems. A Color Flake System is similar in its installation regardless of the specific product used. Surface preparation is of paramount importance for any long lasting system. A first color coat is applied, then a second coat is sometimes required. While the second coat is still wet, color flake chips are broadcast onto the surface until rejection (the floor is 100% covered). Once this layer dries, a top coat is then installed (sometimes a second) to seal off the surface and lock in the chips.These systems vary in price but can range from $3.50ft - to $5.50 ft
