Have you ever wondered how that super high gloss is achieved on dance floors, or garage floors? Or better yet, have you ever wondered why either of those floors might need to have a high gloss?

What exactly is traffic coating?
It is a simple concept really. Any floor that stands to be a high traffic area, or be used for purposes that may lead to spills and drops, needs an extra layer of protection. This layer of protection is applied and in the process a stylish finish is added, resulting in a highly durable and protected floor that looks nice as well.
The process can be broken down into 5 steps:
- Cleaning and preparation
- Primer Epoxy Coat
- Colored Epoxy Coat
- Full Coverage Vinyl Flake
- Proprietary Clear Top-Coat
First the floor must be cleaned in order for the Epoxy to properly adhere in a uniform manner. Any cracks are filled and the surface is made as flat and even as possible. Then the floor is coated with epoxy primer, allowing the following coats to adhere nicely and not flake. Next comes the colored epoxy coat, this coating is matched to the vinyl flake to create an overall look. The vinyl flake is then added followed by the proprietary clear top-coat. This layer adds the high gloss and protects the color coat and other layers from damage.
