Beautiful, versatile Metallic concrete coating systems for exercise rooms, showrooms, and walkways [PDF Installation Guide included]

Did you know that SPARTACOTE Metallic concrete coating systems are perfect flooring solutions for exercise rooms, show rooms, walkways, and hallways? These versatile concrete coatings offer customizable colors and textures—some one-of-a-kind—high traction, fast cure, and easy maintenance.

Take SPARTACOTE Metallic concrete coating systems. Beautiful Metallics offer vivid color, unique look and feel, depth of field, and fast return to service. You will find these unique coating systems in entryways, hallways, upscale bars and restaurants and clubs, and exercise rooms. To give your space an added flair, have your coatings system installer give you a custom Metallic floor. It is always a great conversation-starter, and makes your neighbors desire a custom, artistic finished flooring system for themselves.

All SPARTACOTE Metallic coating systems start with a black base coat of material. The black base coat acts as primary backdrop color from which all of the Metallic pigments bounce off of. The black base coat cures fast—typically in an hour depending upon environmental conditions.

From there, the concrete coatings installer applies the mixed Metallic pigment coat, and works the color around the surface. This is where the art in Metallic coatings comes into play. The installer will usually work the material in a figure 8 style, creating unique patterns with the Metallic pigment. After covering the floor with custom Metallic pigment swirls, the installer will add dollops of denatured alcohol from a brush to create 3-D-like craters. These tiny drops give the floor flair and depth of feel. You start to see the floor come alive with this step in the Metallic coating system.

Upon Metallic coating cure after approximately one hour, the system can be top coated with a clear polyaspartic, usually with SPARTACOTE Grip traction additive […]

CONCRETE SURFACE PREPARATION
Concrete to be mechanically ground with metal bond diamonds to an ICRI CSP-2 profile (equivalent of 60-80 grit sandpaper). Grinder marks should not be visible as they may telegraph through the final surface. All cracks should be repaired prior to application with SPARTACOTE® Fast-Fix™ concrete repair material.

MOISTURE IN CONCRETE
Moisture vapor transmission in concrete should be measured prior to installation and should not exceed 3 lbs/1000 ft2 or 75% relative humidity. For higher moisture floors, a base primer coat of DRYTEK™ Moisture Vapor Barrier primer should be installed prior to system application.

MIXING PIGMENTED COATINGS
Pigmenting Coatings: Disperse a 1-qt pigment pack (black) into SPARTACOTE Part A Pigment Base (short-filled). Mix pigment into part A with a slow drill mixer for approximately 2 minutes until pigment is properly dispersed. Failure to do so will result in a potentially uneven finish.

Mixing Part A with Part B: Do not mix until ready for immediate use. Elevated temperature and humidity levels will reduce product […]

SPARTACOTE® Metallic Coatings and Industrial Traffic Concrete Coatings Featured at World of Concrete

SPARTACOTE® concrete coatings experts performed daily live demos of the Metallic and Industrial Traffic Coatings for concrete at the 2016 World of Concrete in Las Vegas. They held numerous coatings demos daily in front of a captive audience of concrete contractors at the outdoor Decorative Pavilion.

SPARTACOTE® Metallic coatings demoed included Cobalt Blue, Copper, and Electric Orange. These coatings systems offer versatility, high traction, and unique, one-of-a-kind coatings artistry for commercial and residential concrete floors. The Metallic coatings system includes a black base coat. The Metallic coating color is then applied over the cured black base coat in an artistic fashion. Coatings experts then add sprinkles of denatured alcohol to give the Metallic color a 3-D effect. After the Metallic color coating cures, a clear top seal coat is added to finish the Metallic system.

SPARTACOTE® Industrial Traffic Coatings for concrete are very high traction flooring solutions for commercial and industrial floors. These versatile coatings can be applied both indoors and outdoors in commercial and industrial spaces, providing safe, nonslip characteristics. Industrial Traffic Coatings systems include a PURE prime concrete coating. The installer then follows this with a quartz broadcast into the wet PURE resin. After the quartz cures into the wet resin, the excess quartz is removed from the surface. The coatings installer then applies a pigmented SPARTACOTE SB grout coat with DIAMOND TOPP traction additive dispersed into the coating. The final pigmented SPARTACOTE SB topcoat with DIAMOND TOPP traction additive is then applied to give the finished surface one of the highest traction concrete coatings available on the market today.

Thank you to all coatings contractors and surface prep contractors who visited the LATICRETE SPARTACOTE team indoors and outdoors. We look forward to […]
