Chipped Stone Flakes For Epoxy, Polyaspartic Floors
Chipped Stone Flakes offer a decorative natural stone look for your epoxy, polyaspartic, polyurea and urethane floor coating system. Although Chipped Stone Flakes look like real stone, they are actually a manufactured vinyl flake.
Chipped Stone Flakes are broadcast into a colored epoxy, polyurea, polyaspartic or urethane basecoat. When the coating is tack free and ready to be re-coated, excess chips are cleaned off the surface and one or two coats of a clear topcoat are applied.
How thick or how many coats of a topcoat required depend on the amount of flakes used. Chips are sold in 10 lb boxes (TEMPORARILY ONLY AVAILABLE IN 25 LB BOXES). How much to use depends on the look desired. The more chips used the less you see of the base coat color and more you see the chips. For a partial broadcast, you can apply chips at the rate of 20 sq’ to 200 sq’ of floor coating per lb of chips. For full broadcast to refusal it takes substantially more, between 5-10 sq’/lb depending on the size flake. Full broadcast means chips are applied so heavy that the coating can’t absorb anymore and they are sitting on the surface.
Chipped Stone Flakes are available in 1/4″ standard size and using the Custom Stone Flake selection on the dropdown color selector, you can order in 5 additional sizes: 1/32″, 1/16″, 1/8″, 1/2″, 1″ at no extra cost. Just list in the notes section on checkout page which size, color and sku# you want.
