An internal – external seamless finish that is a hard wearing concrete flooring system for around the home & commercial floors
Flake Flooring and the installation process!
Flake Flooring is a combination of resin coatings to adhere and protect small acrylic chips cast in. The process has been installed for decades and proven to be highly durable. The biggest changes are resin technology for lower odours, fast curing and a broader range of flake chip colours available through the market. Also known as seamless floors, paint chip floors and epoxy flake floors, however they are referred to, creating your one colour or custom layout has more options then ever before. Flake Flooring is Ultimate Floors decorative side of our epoxy flooring applications for designer styling. Highly desirable for those who require an extremely durable non slip surface for both indoors and external. Furthermore, removing existing floor finishes such as ceramic floor tile or terracotta to an external area can be avoided as we can prepare and install directly. Add hard wearing and and an awesome look… your solution just might be right here!
Preparing Your Floor
All our concrete floors or tiled floors are prepared by diamond grinding or shot blasting with attention to detail to guarantee adhesion and trouble free installations are achieved. High performance dust extraction controls airborne dust whilst preparing the floor. Ultimate Floors does not acid clean concrete surfaces for 2 main reasons.
1)Acid Washing only introduces moisture to the concrete surface therefore delaying installation and increases the possible risks of coating delamination caused by an imbalance of concrete Alkalinity (COMMON CAUSE OF FAILURE)
2)More importantly, Our Environment. Acid alters the natural PH of soils even heavily diluted with water. Added costs to contain run off to drains and dispose accordingly is an EPA regulation. Further information preparing floors? Hit the button link below.
