Decorative Flake Flooring Options: A Look for Every Space

Special Additions can reinvent your space by modifying the flooring with our decorative vinyl color flakes. Our specially-formulated paint aggregates will transform your residential, commercial, and industrial floors with our seamless, resin-based flake flooring system. This unique product is random in shape, sized within a standardized range, specially blended, and customized to match any need or décor. Our resin flooring offers an endless range of color-styles, texture, size, and blending options to personalize any space efficiently. All flooring is slip-resistant, won’t collect stains, dirt, moisture, or germs, and has a lifetime warranty against peeling or debonding.

Unlike flooring systems that are installed in tiles, sheets, or blocks, resinous floor coatings are fluid-applied coatings that create a virtually seamless surface over a concrete slab and are available in various textures and colors. Decorative flake floor coatings consist of colored flakes suspended in a clear resin, so the distribution of flakes is truly random and organic, unlike repeating tile patterns that attempt to achieve a “natural” look.

Decorative flake floor coating solutions are available in a wide range of both colors and flake sizes, making them a highly versatile and customizable epoxy flooring option. Decorative flakes in a range of natural mineral colors can be used to produce the appearance of terrazzo flooring, which is often prohibitively expensive and typically requires higher maintenance costs and frequent shut down time. Floor coatings containing natural mica flakes can provide a beautiful, elegant appearance similar to granite floors, but without the high costs of installation and maintenance. Brightly colored flakes can create a vibrant, modern look or promote spirit by using the colors of a mascot, logo, or sports team. Or create a visual impact by selecting multiple colors and designing a pattern of your choice. The combinations are endless!

Size Profiles

When choosing a color flake design, size truly makes an impact. Color flakes are available in six standardized size ranges, including: Original (1”), 1/2”, 1/4”, 1/8”, 1/16”, and 1/32”. Each size profile uniquely influences the appearance of the overall décor. Larger flake sizes are more random in shape and offer a broad range of dimensions, whereas smaller flakes become more consistent in shape and size as they are reduced. Each size is customizable in color, blend, and texture.

 

The Flooring Process

The process of applying a vinyl flake epoxy flooring system involves multiple steps. The concrete substrate is primed and sealed, then receives an application a pigmented basecoat, next is a polymer layer of 100% solids broadcast with flakes. Finally, one or two topcoats of clear UV resistant 100% solids epoxy are then applied. These topcoats create an abrasion-resistant, easy-to-clean surface. Before installation, flooring experts consider humidity and temperature conditions, ensuring proper application.
