Our Metallic Epoxy is a next generation system that’s 100% pure solids using the finest raw materials that includes proprietary additives for working time, thickness, flow and marbleization that are vital when achieving our dynamic effects . Our Metallic Epoxy is a decorative, durable and chemical resistant coating, available with a High Gloss or Matte Finish.If you can paint your flooring then you’re more than qualified to install a Leggari Floor Kit. Our Metallic Epoxy Floor System is leading the decorative resin industry for thickness, durability and scratch resistance with our High Wear Top Coats.

Our Metallic Epoxy Floor System is the thickest, most durable user friendly coating on the market hands down. Our floor kits go down at 45 square feet per gallon while our competitors are installing epoxy floor systems at a coverage of 60 to 120 square feet per gallon. When you install epoxy that thin you will never get the dynamic looks, flow, marbleization, and effects that our Metallic Epoxy System creates. When you choose our system you’re getting an industrial grade product with proprietary additives specifically designed to create longer working time before setting up. It will bond better, last longer, has higher scratch resistance and it is 2x to 3x thicker than any other product available while still having competitive pricing. Order with confidence knowing you’re getting the best system available that has been tested and proven.

The process!
One of the best ways to prep your surface is diamond grinding. You can rent concrete grinders at most rental stores. The next best way is using an etching chemical to etch the surface of the concrete. You can also sand the surface if the before mentioned methods can’t be done. If you can only prep minimally or can’t prep at all we have a Prep Replacement Primer to help achieve a strong bond. We always recommend prepping the concrete surface first.
Priming the floor is simple and fast. Mix your pre-measured primer then dip and roll the pigmented primer across the surface until the floor is completely pigmented. Wait 1 hr (or until tacky and not coming off to the touch) and start applying the Base Coat.

Applying the Base Coat and Highlights is the funnest part. Mix your pre-measured Base Coat, pour it out across the floor and begin to spread out the epoxy with your rubber squeegee getting it as even as you can. Our Epoxy self-levels so don’t worry about getting it perfectly even. Quickly roll over the surface with your paint roller to help even out the epoxy. Now mix your pre-measured highlight color and apply it to the base color, then blend it to your desired look.

We offer 2 different gloss sheens in our Urethane Top Coat. The Top Coat comes with the option to have a High Gloss or Satin Finish. It needs to be rolled out super thin and leaves a minor texture which gives it the extra durability. Apply it within 24 hrs of installing your floor kit or you will need to sand the surface before applying it.
