Not really, it's more like information about metallic Epoxy. Why?

Re: Metallic 100% Solid Epoxy


Because it sounds like an advertisement. You copied and pasted content from your Facebook page.

It's not bad, but it may benefit you to present it a little different to a site full of professionals in the construction industry.

Re: Metallic 100% Solid Epoxy


It's still not advertisement. Not once does it mention any sort of sales pitch. It's information. Now about the professionalism, is it "professional" to criticize and scrutinize people on here? If you are a so called "professional" you would take it for what it is and not make it what you think. Out of all the posts on the page this is the one that is more informative than any thing. Not that the need to explain myself to anyone. I enjoy my work, I love what I do and I am good at it.

Relax Francis, just trying to help you present in a better method to your peers. What you originally posted was sterile. No emotion whatsoever. It screamed copy and paste and I was right.

Now if you said this in the first place, then you would be all set. Don't give us 50 cent statements, give us something to be excited about.

Don't try to guess what the tone of a response means, I didn't mean it in any particular way. Stick around, enjoy yourself, participate. We are all just like you. Work hard all day and come to CT to bull**** around.

Welcome to the forum.

He man, the guys with green names are mods. If he thought it was an advertisement, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

So chill out, this is a pretty cool place but sometimes people post some odd things for their first and usually only post.

Re: Metallic 100% Solid Epoxy


I googled it, it does make an interesting floor. Without that post I wouldn't have known it existed.

I'm biting...

Just was working on a bid that calls for dyed concrete slab in a Garage/Studio, but they don't know what they want.

This might be an option, what is required for the install?

Re: Metallic 100% Solid Epoxy


Printed vinyl, its the kind with the holes in it like you would have for a back window of a truck. The logo is embedded under the clearcoat & the holes let the 2 layers of epoxy bond together.

Diamond grind or shot blast the floor. Solid color epoxy primer coat. Metallic pigment mixed with clear coat. Usually top coat with urethane or floor finish.

Re: Metallic 100% Solid Epoxy


That looks similar to what we did in a bar a few years back. This was done by a coatings expert. Great guy. I know roughly how he did this.
