A stonex sand floor is comprised of millions grains of coloured sand that was processed for millions of years on river beds by erosion. This grains are coloured and sieved to produce a high quality, very fine aggregate.

The grains are then combined with an epoxy binding agent, trowelled into place before being pore filled with another epoxy and finally sealed with a polyurethane sealing coat.

The result is a very hard, wear resistant, seamless floor with infinite colour choices available.

Characteristic and benefits; hard wearing, colourful, non porous, chemical resistant, non slip (with additive)

Typical uses; Swimming pool surrounds, changing rooms,.commercial kitchens, nightclub floors,

Flexflooring source high quality quartz and can colour match or come up with unique coloured blends that will be bespoke to the individual or you can opt for some of our popular blends.

epoxyThe small granules of sand are combined with a low viscosity, colourless epoxy binder, mixed together before being trowelled into place. Epoxies are known to be very hard and resistant to various chemical and mechanical loadings.

Flexflooring source various different epoxies from around Europe.

Pore Fill

Once the Stonex sand floor has been laid and sufficiently cured (normally around 24 hours), the surface has to be pore filled with another epoxy substance, know as a thixotropic epoxy. This epoxy is forced into the surface filling all the microscopic pores that exist, making it a non porous surface. Normally two coats are applied to fill all the pores.

Once this has all cured, a final matt seal coat is normally applied. At this stage, an additive can be made to improve the non slip qualities of the surface, especially important in wet environments such as changing rooms.
