DIY Metallic Epoxy Floor Kits
At Armortech, we understand that you want a high-quality metallic epoxy floor kit delivered to your door with as little hassle as possible. We also understand that it can be confusing with all the different choices available on the market today. At Armortech we have done our best to make the decision-making process easy and straight-forward by creating pre-made DIY epoxy kits based on the flooring type and the square footage to be coated.
Metallic epoxy flooring is one of the most unique and beautiful products you can use to enhance your home or business; and is often used in showrooms, garage floors, basements, entry areas, kitchens, bathroom floors, and more. Metallic epoxy flooring is versatile and is easy to install for the average do-it-yourselfer.
When installed these floors resemble a three-dimensional marbled surface. The system is created by mixing our premium clear 100% solids epoxy with the shimmering, pearlescent, and eye-catching effects of metallic pigments. These systems are considered a one-off artistic creation. Multiple designs, looks, and styles can be achieved with metallic flooring using a variety of over fifty available colors, application techniques, tools, additives, glitters, and pigments and can be top coated in either a gloss or satin finish.
Our metallic epoxy flooring system is typically applied as a three (3) layer system. The first coat is a colored base coat/ primer coat. Followed by the decorative metallic layer, and third, a durable aliphatic urethane topcoat.
Under some circumstances, a moisture vapor barrier may also be needed depending on the slab and site conditions, in that case, bringing the total number of layers to four (4).
Each of our DIY metallic epoxy floor kits contains a primer coat, decorative metallic coat, including two colors of metallic pigment (the main color and an accent color), and a premium protective aliphatic urethane topcoat.
The metallic pigments in our kits have been calculated to be used at a ratio of (4) four ounces per gallon of mixed epoxy. This ratio will achieve the most desired, semi-transparent look, most requested in metallic flooring installations. Please note: Depending on the opacity desired of your final look, metallic pigments can be added at a ratio of up to 12 ounces per gallon.
