EPOXY FLOORING

Epoxy resin Flooring is a dynamic, new system for creating visual graphics and to reflect creative impulses on the floor giving customers an option to select colours and patterns of their choice. The company has created a niche for the product, marketed under the brand name, Epo-Terrazzo.

Epo Terrazzo thin-set flooring is a decorative system combining pigmented epoxy resin with coloured glass, marble & granite, synthetic, mother of pearl or other approved aggregates in a trawled mortar system. Designs are drawn using divider strips made of brass, aluminum, stainless steel, coloured plastic or water jet cut pattern. This mortar system is then ground and polished to reveal the natural beauty of aggregates and coloured background. Appropriate sealer of resin coat is applied for long life, if necessary.

This system, ‘cast in place’ flooring, includes substrate preparation, primer, coat, divider strips, moulding or pattern designing and fixing, casting of mortar type with coloured glass, synthetic chips, marble and mother of pearl chips in different colours, grinding, grouting, polishing and sealer application.

CASTING PROCEDURE

Epo Terrazzo is a cast-on site process in which complicated designs are drawn using divider strips. Once the divider strips are fixed firmly to the substrate the mould and substrate are primed. Resin mortar system is then mixed in the ratio and colour as selected to achieve the required texture and colour. Epo Terrazzo gives a wide range of colour and texture possibilities so as to from the required appearance. Once the cast area is cured for 24 hours the surface is ground to display the natural look of Terrazzo and sealer is applied to give a long lasting life and finish.

Final finish is in two different forms: Matt or Glossy.
