Material Description

Quartz Epoxy Flooring

Quartz epoxy flooring, also known as epoxy quartz flooring or quartz broadcast flooring, is a type of flooring system supplied by Elite Crete that combines epoxy resin with quartz granules. This is applied to the prepared substrate, where the epoxy resin acts as a binder, holding the quartz particles together. Thus, forming a smooth and glossy finish that can withstand heavy traffic and resistance to wear, impacts, and chemical exposure. 

On average, our skilled team at Apex Flooring typically requires approximately 2 to 3 days to complete the application of quartz epoxy flooring. However, the duration of the project may vary depending on factors such as the size and complexity of the area being covered. We begin the process by employing diamond grinding floor preparation to thoroughly clean and repair any cracks or imperfections, ensuring optimal adhesion of the flooring material. 

Once the substrate is properly prepared, we apply the quartz epoxy mixture in multiple layers to achieve the desired thickness and finish. Following application, the floor is allowed to cure and harden, typically within 24 to 48 hours, before it is ready to withstand foot traffic or other loads.

Quartz Epoxy Coatings Ultimate Flooring Solution

Quartz epoxy coatings have become the go-to flooring solution for residential, commercial, and industrial environments alike. Thanks to their unique blend of quartz granules and epoxy resin these coatings come with various benefits that contribute to their 20-30 year lifespan. Here’s why quartz epoxy coatings are one of the best flooring solutions, even in the most rigorous environments

High Gloss Finish

High Gloss Finish

Quartz epoxy coatings’ quartz granules are evenly dispersed within the epoxy resin mixture, ensuring a smooth and level surface upon application. Once cured to a semi-gloss state, the surface undergoes a series of polishing and buffing steps using specialized equipment and abrasives.

These steps gradually refine the surface, smoothing out imperfections and enhancing its reflective properties.

No Slip Properties

No Slip Properties

The anti-slip floor coating properties of quartz epoxy coatings are essential for safety, particularly in areas prone to moisture or spills. These properties stem from the rough and gritty texture of the quartz granules embedded in the epoxy resin.

The irregular shapes and varying sizes of the quartz particles create a textured surface that enhances traction and grip underfoot, reducing the risk of slips and falls. This increases the coefficient of friction between the flooring surface and footwear, even when wet or oily.

Thermal Stability

Thermal Stability

Quartz epoxy flooring offers good heat resistance, with a heat distortion temperature of 128°F (53°C), making it capable of withstanding elevated temperatures without softening, deforming, or experiencing significant degradation.

Additionally, its self-extinguishing nature and Class A flame spread rate (NFPA 101) further enhance its suitability for environments where heat exposure is a concern, such as manufacturing facilities, automotive workshops, or food processing plants.

Anti-Microbial Properties

Apex Epoxy Flooring uses quartz epoxy coatings with a non-porous nature of epoxy resin and inherent antimicrobial properties. This inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold, and fungi on the surface of the floor.

Non-porous surfaces prevent moisture and organic matter from penetrating the surface and providing a breeding ground for pathogens.

Noise Reduction

Noise Reduction

Quartz epoxy coatings contribute to noise reduction in indoor environments, creating a quieter and more comfortable space for occupants. The irregular surface of the quartz granules disperses sound waves, reducing reverberation and minimizing noise transmission between floors.

This dispersion helps to break up sound waves and prevent them from bouncing off smooth surfaces. The composition of the epoxy resin itself also provides some degree of sound absorption, further dampening noise transmission.

Elongation

Elongation

Quartz epoxy flooring typically displays an elongation at break of approximately 4.2%. This measure indicates the percentage of deformation the material can undergo before fracturing under tensile stress.

While epoxy flooring, including quartz-infused varieties, tends to have low elongation properties due to its rigid nature, the measured elongation at break demonstrates a moderate level of flexibility.

Reliable Poured-in-Place Quartz Floor Coating Design

Quartz Epoxy Flooring from Apex Epoxy Flooring is renowned for its poured-in-place floor coating design. This refers to our innovative method of applying flooring materials directly onto a substrate or existing floor surface in liquid form. Unlike traditional flooring options that are typically pre-manufactured and installed in tiles or planks, poured-in-place coatings are cascaded and spread across the floor surface. 

This double broadcast system offers a high degree of flexibility, as it can accommodate various shapes, sizes, and architectural features of the space being covered. Various decorative elements, such as color pigments, epoxy flakes, or aggregates, can be incorporated to achieve custom designs and patterns. Our flooring company highly recommends poured-in-place floor coatings, like Quartz epoxy for residential, industrial and commercial settings, including kitchens, bathrooms, garages, warehouses, and recreational areas.

If you don’t find the answers you’re looking for, feel free to reach out to our flooring experts to schedule a consultation.

Start by removing loose debris with a soft-bristled broom or vacuum cleaner. Then, mop the floor with a mild detergent solution and warm water, using a soft mop or microfiber cloth to avoid scratching the surface. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and allow the floor to air dry or dry it with a clean towel. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning tools, as they can damage the epoxy coating.

Yes, Quartz epoxy flooring offers outstanding durability, strength, and resilience, making it suitable for various residential, commercial, and industrial applications. It is highly resistant to wear, scratches, impacts, and chemical damage, ensuring lasting performance even in high-traffic areas.

Yes, quartz epoxy flooring can typically be restored if damaged. Minor scratches or surface imperfections can often be addressed by buffing or filling them in with epoxy patching compounds. For more extensive damage such as cracks or chips, professional repair may be required. In such cases, the damaged area may need to be carefully cleaned, prepared, and filled with epoxy or a compatible repair material. Don’t hesitate to contact us at Apex Flooring for professional restoration of damaged quartz epoxy flooring.

No, Quartz epoxy flooring uses quartz granules embedded in the epoxy resin to enhance traction. This helps to improve grip and stability even in wet conditions. In addition, many quartz epoxy coatings are formulated with additives such as silica sand and polyethylene wax that further enhance slip resistance.

Yes, quartz epoxy flooring is generally easy to maintain. Its smooth and non-porous surface makes it resistant to stains, allowing for easy cleaning with regular sweeping and occasional mopping using a mild detergent solution and warm water. Unlike some other flooring materials, quartz epoxy does not require special waxes or polishes for maintenance.
