Are epoxy flake floors only for garages?
Although the most popular venue seen and advertised with an epoxy flake or chip floor is a garage. The applications and benefits of this system are not limited to vehicular parking spaces. All interior rooms, which are not exposed to constant hydrostatic pressure, can have this flooring installed. Features of an epoxy flake floor are more than design and curb appeal. The chip system gives a level a cleaner look, low maintenance cleanup, hypo-allergenic, increased light reflective, fantastic wearability, increase slip resistance, and reduction of tire marks. If any or multiple of these attributes are needed, then epoxy flak is the smart flooring choice.
In residential housing, standard applications for epoxy flake flooring are the garage, kitchen, sunrooms, enclosed patios, bathrooms, barns, and sheds. Similar areas are used in commercial and retail locations. These will include food prep stations, kitchens, service areas, entry ways, automotive centers, under roof bays, bathrooms, and enclosed wet areas. Hospitals and veterinarian clinics utilize this system for its allergy free and ease of cleaning.
Can I broadcast flakes into your WB polyurethane?
You could but you will not get the desired effect of a flake floor. The flakes need to be broadcast into a sealer that is thick enough to suspend them within the sealer as it dries. WB Polyurethane is meant to go out as a thin coating and in fact, will whiten if put out too thick. So for optimal performance, it is best to broadcast into a Dura-Kote line of Epoxies and Polyaspartics.
