Granite Look Epoxy Flooring Kit!
We've formulated our 100% solids Military Grade "Armor Ultra Epoxy" coating in an extra thick version with our decorative epoxy chips to create the only DIY epoxy kit with a real Granite look! Similar installed floors by franchise companies cost up to $5000.00!
Armor Granite is self leveling, skid-resistant, impact resistant, chemical & salt resistant and at 23 mils thick it's more than twice as thick as our closest competitor and over 10 times thicker than store bought epoxy kits! With 20 lbs of chips, you get full floor coverage and no other kit comes even close! It makes any floor look gorgeous! Great for garages, work shops, cafeterias, retail stores and many other commercial applications.
With 3 coats of high gloss clear topcoat Armor Granite's finished look and durability cannot be matched by home center products or any other online kits.
Although well marketed, brand name kits are prone to failures and cannot hold nearly the same amount of chips! That's why they have less than 3 lbs of chips!
Armor Granite cures to a rock hard finish that has such incredible adhesion ability it actually becomes part of the first layer of your concrete floor. Plus you'll be amazed at how beautiful your floor looks! Similar to our Armor Chip but with a thicker version epoxy, 12 more pounds of chips, extra topcoat and spiked soles, it's the top of the line epoxy floor kit! Each full kit will cover up to 500 sf and each add on half kit will coover up to 250 sf. Please allow a safety factor when ordering, please see ordering guide lines towrd bottom of this page.

Armor Granite is guaranteed for 10 years against Hot Tire Lifting or Discoloration, Staining, Cracking, Yellowing, UV Fading and the ONLY kit guaranteed against Wear for 5 years in residential applications! Other systems may cost less but can't & won't guarantee their product against wear at all! That's because low grade solids epoxy and water based epoxies don't have the durability Armor Granite has and get worn out faster than you think from hot tire abrasion! They may stay stuck to your floor but that has nothing to do with wearing out or dulling! Armor Granite is truly a one of a kind product!
Did you know that when you broadcast the chips onto the wet epoxy they DO NOT fully embed themselves. They are only stuck to the surface giving the floor a slight texture. So if you don't "Seal In" your chips with a topcoat, do you really think that the tires on your car that can reach 180 degrees aren't going to grind, peel and wear off the exposed plastic chips and the epoxy with them? You'll be very unhappy when that happens, unless you started with so few chips you won't notice they're gone!
The Chips also have a small dimensional edge that will continuously collect dirt and grime! You will be constantly scrubbing your floor clean instead of simply wiping it clean in minutes! These are indisputable common sense facts.
For workshops or workshop type garages select the single coat Military Grade Topcoat. This provides added protection via a chemically harder finish when working on a regular basis with heavy rolling tool chests, tools or equipment. Also use the upgraded topcoat when using vehicles such as tractors, large ATVs or rubber tracked equipment such as Bob Cats. Woodworking shops that use stationary type equipment are ok with the standard topcoat. For retail locations with normal foot traffic such as beauty salons, clothing stores or offices use the standard topcoat. For high volume foot traffic and or shopping carts use the upgraded topcoat for best results.
We provide you with everything needed to complete the job including easy to follow clearly written instructions with the first time users in mind.
Armor Granite is for use on concrete floors and curbing or wood trim and can be applied to previously painted floors if the paint is still in good condition.
The Armor Granite system is 100% environmentally safe, no odor, and fully government approved in all 50 states.
Our unique Armor Granite epoxy flooring system is simple and easy to apply!
APPLICATION IS AS FOLLOWS:
Apply epoxy in a temperature range of 55-95 degrees.
Clean the floor well, power washing is preferred but not required. Then etch with the included acid safe etching solution per the supplied written instructions. Let the floor dry completely! Mix the two components of the epoxy paint in a two Parts of A to one Part of B ratio, do not mix all the epoxy at once, this is not like store bought epoxy, we recommend that you mix the epoxy in about 4 batches per kit. Pot life is about 45 minutes per batch when mixed in 4 batches which is about double the time you need to do a proper size section of the floor. Pot life decreases with larger quantities of epoxy being mixed. Apply the base color coat to the floor with the supplied notched squeegee and then back roll it, ensuring a smooth finish at the perfect thickness.
While the base coat is wet, broadcast the supplied color chips to achieve your desired effect. Leave a wet edge with no chips for the next section of epoxy to be overlapped. Repeat each section of the floor till done. It will all dry in a seamless rock hard porcelain finish. Let dry for 6-8 hrs until dry to the touch or overnight.
Next, sweep and scrape off any loose or vertically standing chips and apply the supplied clear epoxy topcoat to seal in the chips. 2-4 hrs later when first coat has dried, apply the second coat of clear coat and let dry and then apply the final third coat to give the floor that deep luster look of granite. Note, you don't have to do all the topcoats in one day if you don't want to, you can do some the next day. The chips themselves give the floor some texture and non-slip properties, we recommend you add the non-slip aggregate to the final Topcoat for added traction. If you have purchased the Military Grade Topcoat you ONLY DO ONE COAT as opposed to THREE coats with the standard topcoat. The nonslip additive gets mixed right into the can of the military grade topcoat. Once the topcoat has dried you can walk on the floor and put all your stuff back on it. Let the floor dry/cure for at least 2-3 days before driving vehicles on it. That's it!
Each ArmorGranite kit contains everything for a complete job. Coverage is approximately 500 sq. ft. per kit at 23 mils thick, enough to do a typical 2 1/2 car garage. Coverage may vary depending on texture of floor, porosity of floor and if a lighter color such as Beige is used. Please allow a margin of safety and if your floor is close to the 500 sq ft coverage we recommend you order the MINI MIX, it contains enough epoxy to do an additional 20 sq ft.
