Colored epoxy and opaque aggregate consists of a clear 100% solid pigmented epoxy with opaque aggregate broadcast into the epoxy. Our base system is a standard, double broadcast, 60-80 mils (nominal 1/8 inch) thick. We also offer a thinner, single broadcast system, at 40-60 mils (nominal 1/16 inch) thick.
The preparation recommended for this system is shotblasting. This is a mechanical method of preparing the concrete to receive high performance epoxy systems. This removes the laitance (the weak part of the concrete) and allows the epoxy to bond to the concrete.
Chemical resistant urethane (CRU), is a solvent based product that will not affect the texture greatly, but will enhance the chemical resistance, and UV stability. This would be an additional top coat. The CRU comes in two finishes: glossy and satin gloss which is the standard finish.
