Decorative Metallic Epoxy Coatings for Garage Floors and Basements

Lumiere Decorative Metallic Epoxy Coatings for Garage Floors and BasementsPutting the metal to pedal

Rev up the look and protection of your garage or basement floor with the Lumiere Decorative Metallic Epoxy Coating system. What makes Lumiere the ideal reflector designer epoxy for any garage or basement flooring project is that it combines the strength and durability of an industrial coating with terrific reflective enhancer qualities.

Lumiere enables you to create stunning looks.

Create one-of-a-kind visual effects that please clients and are fun to apply — looks that would be impossible with traditional organic and metal compound pigments.

Lumiere metallic pigments are a versatile class of coloring agents, that create great visual impact and stunning looks.

Its metallic essence retains many of the attributes of the bulk metal:
• solidity (opacity)
• metallic color
• sheen
• density

Lumiere also gives you:

  • good clarity and color
  • low odor during application and cure (it can be applied while a building is occupied)
  • low viscosity (easy spreading and wetting properties)
  • a ‘fast cure’ option

For garage flooring: The appearance of your garage may be the first impression you give people. The looks you can achieve with Lumiere will help make it a great one. But don’t let the decorative part fool you.

Lumiere will stand up to the pressure of cars driving back and forth and the sticking of and friction of tires. It will also be resistant to the oils, fluids and whatever else may find its way onto your floor. We recommend the fast cure option so that cars can start rolling back in in no time.

For basement flooring: You may need the versatility of using your basement as a storage room or as a second den. You may also need it to house machinery. Whether your home or the basement of a building, Lumiere will give you the strength and chemical and water resistance you need.

Unlimited design possibilities
There are unlimited ways to apply this metallic epoxy and achieve dramatic, vivid, sophisticated results — and it can be done quickly and easily. Blend multiple colors, create patterns, apply accent colors, and create additional textures. It all depends on the needs of your project and the look you want to achieve.

You’ve created something great. Now make sure you preserve it. Lumiere is 100% solids epoxy, so it’s not scuff or abrasion resistant. So you really need a proper seal to protect it. Watch how to prepare the surface for your coating application.

We recommend one of these top or clear coating systems:
• Perdure P90 (90% solids polyaspartic – also available in a 72% solids)
• Perdure U90 (moisture-cured polyurethane system)
• Perdure U46 (water-based gloss polyurethane)
• Perdure U45 (water-based matte polyurethane)


IMPORTANT: Application processes, curing times and when to seal vary depending on the size of your surface. Learn more about applying Lumiere.
