Clear Epoxy for Mica and Quartz Full Broadcast Systems

Clear Epoxy for Mica and Quartz Full Broadcast Systems

mica floorA full broadcast Mica or Quartz system can be one of the most attractive and resilient epoxy coated floors on the market. We prefer Torginol Mica and Torginol Quartz. The basic system requires grinding your floor. Once the floor is ready you apply a primer. The next step is crucial. You need a high build 100% solids epoxy binder or coating with sufficient mil thickness and engineering to adhere both to the primed concrete below and the broadcast media your are applying.TL137Mis the ideal clear epoxy for full broadcast mica and quartz applications. Although it has been sold for flake applications, we believe a tinted epoxy will provide the best results for that application.Once our TL137M clear epoxy is applied over the primed concrete substrate, the mica or quartz are broadcast to rejection — until they stop sticking. The floor is then allowed to dry. Typically the following day, using a shop vac or scraper material that is not fully adhered will be removed. It is important to make sure the surface is clean and dust free and that all loose material is removed.Next you encapsulate the floor in either our clear UV resistant epoxy top coat, or two coats of our aliphatic urethane. Often the best system is one coat of epoxy and one coat of urethane for increased chemical resistance. We can help you with the complete system. If you are a contractor, you may wish to check with Torginol directly. We provide the product as a courtesy for those who cannot source it, but often contractors can purchase it at the same price we do.Generally speaking Mica comes in two sizes. Micro (1/12″) and Macro. Coverage will vary some, but on average you will need one 25 pound box per 375 square feet. We offer broadcast grade quartz in 50 pound boxes. A 50# box will cover 50-100 Sq. Ft — typically closer to 100. We charge $375 for a box of mica and $69 for a box of Quartz when ordered with our epoxy systems. These products are obviously heavy and these prices include shipping.

We offer a complete selection of clear base coats and top coats. Selecting the top coat can be complicated because it is based on UV resistance, chemical resistance and the VOC regulations in your area. We suggest you contact us for guidance -- or to add mica or quartz to your order
