Decorative Concrete coating systems have many different names. Most people know them as Epoxy resin flooring, Garage floor coatings, Polished Concrete floors, Epoxy flooring, Resin, Polyurea, Garage floor, Paint, Epoxy Paint, Epoxy Resin, Polyurea Floor Coatings, Epoxy floors, Epoxy paint for concrete, Epoxy resin and Epoxy coatings and the list goes on and on. iCOAT floor finishing systems exclusively use decorative flakes made of a vinyl composite and have been developed to soak in and absorb resinous coatings. Our materials have been used on tens of thousands of square metres (M²) of floor coatings throughout Western Australia.
We use Epoxy, Polyurea and Polyaspartics in our coatings systems. Which epoxy paint is used is determined by the space, usage and scope of works. Regardless of which concrete floor coating is used we only use the best version we can get our hands on. We will NEVER use low or poor quality products. In fact, we also apply the quality Citadel USA manufactured range of Polyurea, Polyaspartics and Epoxy products. These are considered the industry best and deliver quality long lasting results.
Our Flake Flooring Systems are ideal for Garages, Carports, Patios, Alfresco, Inside the Home and out. They also look fantastic in retail spaces where you need a hard wearing easy to clean, anti slip floor that will impress.
What are Flake Floor Systems?
Flake Floor Systems use a decorative flake to visually change the appearance of your concrete via a strict application method. They are the perfect solution to brighten up any NEW or OLD concrete floor.
As part of our FREE onsite quoting visit we will firm up the size of your space. We will conduct a moisture test on your concrete to ensure the contained moisture is within the manufacturer’s requirements. A concrete hardness test will also be done as this is vital to certify that the concrete is hard enough to accept the necessary grinding tools.
Before we even compilate applying the coating system we religiously go through our detailed preparation process to ensure your concrete floor is ready to receive the first stage of our coating system. Simply put preparation is KING and no corners are cut in this procedure. We also work to our industry standard BEST PRACTICE policy to safeguard the end result. We use the most up to date professional grade equipment to prepare your concrete. We always dry mechanically, diamond grind, or shot blast the concrete.
Why: Because this is the only way to professionally prepare a concrete surface. Everything else is totally inadequate. Failure to prepare the surface properly will lead to premature failure. We also repair any chips or cracks in your concrete via a rapid set Polyurea compound that sets rock hard in 10 to 15 minutes. This is then ground back flush ensuring that it is not visible through the final coating. We then thoroughly vacuum the floor free of concrete dust twice to ensure we have the surface as dust free as possible. ONLY ONCE WE HAVE COMPLETED THE ABOVE PROCESS ARE WE READY TO START THE COATING PROCESS.
The base coat is applied using rollers and once we have completed the base coat we then literally throw the flake into the air so it filters down and sticks into the wet basecoat. We totally saturate the wet basecoat to ensure we get every available wet spot. This is then allowed to dry.
Once dried we then recover the surplus flake and then scrape even the flake stuck in the now dry basecoat. We do this two ways to ensure we get all the high spots. At this point we then thoroughly vacuum the floor again, two ways to get all the loose flake. The floor is now ready for the topcoat.
The topcoat is applied via a squeegee and cross roll method. By using this technique, we make certain we apply the topcoat to every inch of the exposed flake locking it in from above. We then cross roll the complete floor to ensure nothing has been overlooked.
At the completion of the job we present you with an aftercare sheet that walks you through a simple process to keep your beautiful new floor looking awesome for many years to come.
We have over 100 different colour ways to choose from. Our flake formulas come in both large and small sizes. The only comment we get with our colour range is that it is too big and makes choosing harder ? A visit to our showroom is well worth the effort as ALL our concrete floor coating systems are on display and certainly makes decision making easier.
Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value I can definitely recommend Paul and the iCoat floor coating system. It has transformed my garage into an area I’m very proud to show off. My wife and I are looking forward to using it in the future as an entertaining area and an extra space for the family to hang out. The finish is superb. The process of making it all happen was dead simple and I found Paul to be prompt, reliable, and polite.
Positive: Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Just recently had Paul and his team put down the ‘Yabbi Creek’ over a large tiled area inside the house. Couldn’t be happier with the result. Where were also on a tight time frame which the guys were able to achieve for us. Throughout the whole experience Paul was a real professional providing frank honest advice and fast and efficient communication from quoting to updating on jobs progress. Highly recommend to all. Absolute pleasure to deal with.
Very Efficient. Paul Came out to quote within days of getting my inquiry. The price was very competitive, but what impressed me the most was the professionalism of the installation team.
