Different epoxy flooring systems can provide various solutions to fit ones needs. This is why it is important to speak with one of our epoxy flooring specialists who will walk you through which coatings would be suited for each area. For example, in a grocery store, we would probably suggest a Hermetic Flake system in the public areas, a Hermetic Stout system in the cooler/freezer and prep areas, and a sealed concrete in the stock room/ receiving areas. 


All Phase CPI Inc. proudly installs Elite Crete Epoxy Flooring Systems, which has a plethora of options, perfect for any commercial entity.  Whether your business is commercial or retail, professional services or offices, or more industrial settings such as warehouses or automotive shops, we have an epoxy system to fit the scope of your work. There are even high performance systems that are crafted specifically for aircraft hangers and public safety entities. 


Every install, regardless if the slab is new or old, begins with a preparation process that includes grinding the surface. Once the initial grind and vacuum process is completed, the crew will address any imperfections such as leveling, cracks, or trenches. The surface is then ground again. Commercial grade vacuums with OSHA compliant dust separators are utilized during the grinding process to ensure that 99% of airborne dust is contained. Once the floor has been fully prepared, it receives a vapor barrier to protect the epoxy coatings from any moisture that may come up from the slab. Not every company uses vapor barrier on every floor, but All Phase CPI Inc. does!  Here is where the process varies, depending on the option you choose. The more popular options are: Reflector Enhancer, Hermetic Flake, Hermetic Stout, Hermetic Neat, Hermetic Quartz, and Parmount.

Reflector Enhancer

This is one of our most popular floors. Elite Crete Systems Reflector Enhancer has almost endless customization options. These floors have been described as fluid and in motion. Each and every floor is unique. 


After the vapor barrier has been laid, a primer coat of epoxy is laid. This, like all the other options, is a fluid application, so there are no seams. After that has cured, a layer of the reflector enhancer is applied and the accent colors are swirled or rolled in by hand, in as abundant or discreet amounts as desired by the client. The floor can then be sealed with a clear coat of epoxy or a urethane top coat, but these additional coats are optional. 


Aside from being completely unique and breathtakingly beautiful, these floors are durable, easy to maintain (simply clean them!!), and long lasting, with ADA slip resistant and anti-microbial finishes. 

Hermetic Flake

This is another one of our most versatile and popular floors, this Hermetic Flake Floor offers a textured finish with style.  After the vapor barrier, you apply a primer and broadcast flake on top. This cures for a set time period, the excess flake is removed, and then the entire floor is sealed with a clear epoxy topcoat. Once that has cured, we apply a Urethane Top Coat which makes the floor almost indestructible. 


This floor is beautiful, has fully customizable color options (yes, if you do not like a flake color combination that is premixed, we will custom order the colors and percentages you want). It is a seamless application so there are no grout lines or cracks for dirt or food particles to become trapped in, it is ADA slip resistant, has an anti-microbial finish, and is rated 15,000 pounds per square inch… regular concrete is typically only rated 4000 pounds per square inch. 

Hermetic Stout

This Stout system is very popular for areas in the "Back of the House,"  such as:  coolers, meat rooms, stock rooms, freezers, kitchens, bathrooms, etc.  Te process begins the same, and after the vapor barrier, we apply a base coat of epoxy, which ever color you choose.  For Hermetic Stout, after the first coat of epoxy (we typically suggest red for meat prep rooms and meat coolers, and grey for other prep and cooler areas), a highly textured grip-sand is broadcast into the epoxy. Once this has had a chance to cure, the excess sand is removed and a second coat of colored epoxy is applied, sealing in the sand and sealing everything else out. 


These floors are tough, aesthetically pleasing, with a wide variety of colors, seamless in application, with an anti-microbial finish, so they are hygienic with no cracks or grout lines for food particles, bacteria or dirt to get trapped in. It is ADA rated slip resistant, and the stout has that extra texture for super slip resistance in areas where hosing is used or condensation may build. Finally, it is rated for 15,000 pounds per square inch, strengthening your concrete slab (which by itself is only rated for 4000 pounds per square inch). 

Hermetic Neat

The Hermetic Neat system is so versatile, and often used in gymnasiums, garages, apparatus bays, and more industrial settings.  The prep process begins the same, and after the vapor barrier, we apply two coats of epoxy, in which ever color you choose, allowing cure-time between coats.  After the second coat of epoxy has time to cure, for Hermetic Neat, we suggest utilizing the pigmented urethane to protect and strengthen the floor to withstand industrial traffic. We would consider this a flat finish or smooth epoxy.


These floors are tough, aesthetically pleasing, with a wide variety of colors, seamless in application, with an anti-microbial finish, so they are hygienic with no cracks or grout lines for food particles, bacteria or dirt to get trapped in. It is ADA rated slip resistant.  Finally, it is are rated for 15,000 pounds per square inch, strengthening your concrete slab (which by itself is only rated for 4000 pounds per square inch). 

Hermetic Quartz

Hermetic Quartz is much like the Hermetic Flake and Hermetic Stout process. After the prep is complete and the vapor barrier is laid and cured, an epoxy coat in a color of your choice is applied. Next, a beautiful colored quartz sand is broadcast into the wet epoxy, and allowed to cure. The excess sand is removed and a layer of clear epoxy is applied. A second broadcast of colored quartz sand is applied while the clear epoxy is still wet. The excess sand is removed, and the final clear coat of epoxy is installed. This sand finish is a lot smoother than the Hermetic Stout, yet still offers a higher slip resistance than required by the ADA. 


The quartz sand comes in many different colors, and adds an eye-catching unique look to your floor. As are our other epoxy systems, these floors are durable, easy to maintain (simply clean them!!), long lasting, with an anti-microbial finish, and rated for 15,000 pounds per square inch. 

Paramount

Hermetic Paramount is a high build, self-leveling, resinous slurry flooring system  engineered for industrial applications. Available in either a solid  pigment or colored quartz for a speckled finish, offering a smooth or  non-slip surface for a variety of needs.  Paramount Heavy Duty is a trowel down system offered in 1/8" or 1/4" thicknesses.  These types of floors are often utilized for military installations, aircraft hangers, factories, warehouses, and automotive shops. 

Vapor Barrier

Many companies will skip this step, as it is not "required" in every situation for a system to be considered complete.  All Phase CPI Inc. uses vapor barrier on all of our epoxy flooring. What this does is offer you additional protection from possible moisture issues.  Concrete breathes and sweats, and moisture under your slab can release gas, which can cause bubbles.  Make sure your new floors are protected from underneath as well as on top.
