Resincoat Epoxy Paint Used To Create Customers Unique Concrete Floor Design

Resincoat Epoxy Paint Used To Create Customers Unique Concrete Floor Design

The flooring world is an ever changing and constantly evolving scene, with new styles and designs entering the market on a very frequent basis. When we heard about one of our customers visions to create a unique flooring design in her home, we were extremely excited to see the finished look.

Earlier this year Julia Hailes MBE, well known author and sustainability consultant, reached out to us with a design concept for the floor in her newly built basement/garage. The main use of the area will be for her husband to display/store his motorbike collection.

The Inspiration

Julia’s vision was simple. Surrounded by the tranquil Dorset countryside, she wanted the overall look and feel to be natural and organic. Julia explained that this effect is something that can make a space feel calm, peaceful and welcoming. The natural finish on the floor complements the existing elements of the room beautifully with the exposed brickwork and steel pillars creating a modern yet earthy feel.

Sustainable Raw Materials  

With Julia’s background in sustainability she was also interested in exploring and learning about the raw materials Resincoat use to manufacture our paints and the processes behind the making our products. Most of our products are epoxy and polyurethane coatings. Epoxy coatings come as a two-part system: Part A (the resin) and Part B (the hardener).


Part B is known in the industry as ‘the hardener’ or ‘curing agent’. Once these two parts are mixed together, a chemical reaction begins.  For the chemistry minded, this means that a reaction between a polymer chain containing epoxide groups typically referred to as Part A and an aromatic amine group known as Part B takes place. When mixed these react to form a much longer chain product which is the final epoxy coating.


Recently we have seen a breakthrough in the sourcing of raw materials for our Part B, allowing us to source more sustainable materials.  Our curing agents are derived from cashew nutshell liquid (CNSL) also known as cashew shell oil. This oil is a natural resin found in the unique honeycomb structure of the cashew nutshell and a by-product of the processing of the cashew nut; making this a natural, on-food chain and annually renewable biomaterial. As well as helping us to become even more environmentally friendly and greener, this natural raw material also has excellent water and moisture resistance and good flexibility. Cashew nutshell liquid also extends the pot life and improves the UV performance and corrosion resistance which is a great advantage for the end user.

The Process

Together with her builder and installer Julia experimented using a combination of small sample pots, finally finding the right formula to create the desired warm Terracotta colour or ‘muddy’ (in Julia’s words) look. She did this by mixing our Vermillion Epoxy Garage Floor Paint with our Clear Epoxy Garage Floor Paint.  Julia’s wish was to keep the rough and rugged natural look of her concrete floor and therefore decided not to use a primer, allowing the raw appearance of the concrete to come through. This meant that two coats of paint were required for the colour to be prominent creating a unique, handcrafted look.

The Finished Look

Julia contacted us after the work had been finished to report how well the project had gone and how pleased everyone was with the result.  A simple yet incredibly professional effect, achieved by a touch of creativity and whole lot of imagination!

      Thanks to your idea and I agree, Concrete flooring also has practical advantages: it is easy to clean, hard-wear and looks even better as it ages. The other feature of the concrete that we like is its durability. Concrete can be spread with underfloor heating and can be used for constant, wall-to-floor painting. But first of all, you need to test the flooring before you do the concrete floor coating every day.

      This unique floor design looks awesome, and I want to know how can I get this design in my home, as well. I am working for assignment writing service uk, so I don't really get a lot of free time. I'll have to hire professionals to do the work.

      It is an interesting floor picture, I like all the details about it. When I read about it on doctoral-rms.com, I wasn't interested in it but then I read more reviews about it. I am glad that I made the decision of coming here.
