The Quartz floor is identical to the Classic, except that it contains a decorative Quartz aggregate in lieu of vinyl flake. It includes surface preparation and extensive repair of cracks, damage, and imperfections.It has an inherent texture that is glossy and easy to clean, but provides a natural anti-slip finish. It is available with a limited lifetime warranty in most cases.
Because of it's anti-skid nature, this type of coating is commonly found in bathrooms, locker rooms, pool houses, etc. It is a good coating option for garages adjacent to swimming pools, and is often found in the garages of high-end homes.
1. The surface will be prepared to receive the new coating by diamond grinding or shotblasting. This process removes foreign materials and creates a textured-profile for the coating to bond with. These methods are far superior to acid-washing and the Diamabrush tool.
2. We will spend more time repairing damage and imperfections than we do on the “Basic” option. Cracks and damage will be almost invisible once the coating is installed. We will also bullnose the corners of the car stop and weather seals, so they are smooth, and less-prone to chipping.
3. Next, we apply the UV-Resistant, Low-VOC, 100% solid epoxy basecoat, giving the floor lots of body, strength, and color. Decorative Quartz aggregate is broadcast to rejection into the wet epoxy. This gives the coating a “lift”, creating a much stronger, thicker layer of material. In fact, it can increase the thickness of the basecoat to more than 50-mils.
5. The last step in this process is the clearcoat. Our Polyaspartic Urethane will provide a beautiful, glossy sheen that brings out the color in your floor. But more importantly, it provides a UV-tolerant layer of armor which is highly resistant to impact, abrasion, chemicals, and staining. Aluminum Oxide will be broadcast into the clearcoat to provide anti-skid properties and increased abrasion resistance.
